And I'm perfectly fine with that. I think we would be fine cutting Ballard, and then letting Raymond and Malhotra walk at the end of the season (or even including Raymond in the trade). That right there is almost $9M of cap savings (if Weiss re-signs for $5M/year). Considering we have to cut about $3.5M of cap space from our payroll right this minute, and accounting for Burrows's $2.5M raise, and Edler's anticipated $1.5M raise and adding a couple ELC's to our roster I think we'd be just fine. Would mean no Getzlaf/Perry, but we would still have a contending roster.
Please have mercy on us Canucks fans! Fire Benning! Fire Linden! Fire Weisbrod! #Bexit #Lexit #Wexit
