Let me ask you this, why did Gillis go out and sign Garrison for more money than Ballard makes, which will ultimately push Ballard down the roster and likely off it? Because he had an opportunity to upgrade his defense. If the opportunity arises to improve the forward corps, he'll do it. And that arbitrary $4.2mil is completely irrelevant and won't enter into the equation.

Not sure what makes you think a top 6 forward that comes in needs to make Booth money or less...

Ok, can you point to me cases in the last 3 years where the Canucks had an opportunity to sign a _better_value_ PWF Top6er, regardless of a 4m dollar threshold? Or to trade for one? If so, what was the acquisition cost?
