Considering we are currently debating whether to buyout Ballard or Booth you have to admit that's a pretty good problem to have.
To me, given the Canucks have deeper pockets than most teams there is probably a team out there with 2 bad contracts they want to get rid of, and would be willing to trade one of them to the Canucks along with a prospect/pick or other positive value assets that the Canucks can turn around and use their buyout on.
I haven't read this whole thread but I'm sure someone else has presented this idea as well. I say this with the expectation that whatever the cap ends up being, teams will have the 10% or whatever it is leeway next summer and this whole sequence of events would occur then because I don't see this working during a shortened season with the cap going down unless it involved Luongo and even then it might not be possible.
