40 mil to buy out<10 mil to retire

It has been proven a few times, the Canucks can make a lineup just fine under 60 mil WITH Luongo. It is not ideal, and most likely won't be needed, but very achievable. This simply means, we don't have to trade him. We can wait for the best offer.

With 2 amnesty buy outs the Canucks can actually take back a bad contract.
No it really hasn't. All the lineups posted so far have absolutely abysmal bottom sixes. With Edler and Burrows getting meaty raises next year, you need to move as much cap as possible to maintain a competitive team.
