Instead of Tanev? The million and a half the Canucks give to alberts is not going to hurt. It's the five million that Tanev should get.

Canucks are not paying three centers five million, either, so forget about Roy.

Booth is apparently done, so the Canucks have a little over $5.7m to spend. That would just cover Roy in a non-cap league. It doesn't cover Tanev and a fourth line.

Really, since they can't shed Luongo, the Canucks need the Sedins to retire or accept a trade. Then they could sign Roy, Tanev and a fourth line and maybe even add a FA to replace Booth.
