We are very excited to add a gamebreaking talent in Marian Gaborik. We feel he is a great compliment to Ryan Kesler and allows us to roll out two formidable offensive lines. Getting him at $6M per gives us the flexibility next season to fill out our roster while still maintaining our top end players. Moving Raymond and Schroeder wasn't easy, but given Mason's UFA status and Kesler's impending return which in turn bumps Schroeder down we felt we could afford to make this type of move. We thank both of them for their contributions to the Canucks organization.
