I'll say that with Luongo in Vancouver the Canucks have $3.9M to sign 9 players next season. That means they can't afford to pay league minimum to fill the roster. Luongo has to be dealt or bought out in the summer. Unless there is another player on your roster that is a compliance buyout option? Maybe Ballard's $4.2M? Realistically to add any sort of quality up front you need both of those off the books.
