The same situation will happen with Kadri, his ELC is done after this season.

If he is acquired and doesn't earn a permanent roster spot next fall, he will be lost to waivers.

Plain and simple is horrendous asset management to acquire Bozak (UFA rental) and Kadri (unlikely to make the roster this season or next) and a 2nd round pick.

Would rather have depth in goal.
Well with the new CBA the situation is different. There are no re-entry waivers, so Canucks would not lose him that way, but his salary would count against the cap if he is qualified.
