So that leaves one spot, and pushing Kassian to the 4th line, to find that 3rd LWer some ice.
It also ensures the 3C position will be a "budget" fill next year.
Given the Canucks roster right now, I'd rather pay one elite player 6 million than have Raymond + Higgins making anything close to that.
Although if we could just ditch Booth it would all be a little easier.
