The Canucks just tinkering around with the non-core players has not, and will not, make any difference to results. Or, do we continue with the Sedins as center pieces for another season?
I don't see buying out the Sedins as an intelligent option at all. They're still productive players who are useful. Buyouts should only be used on useless players (like Ballard and Booth).
Having said that, I would explore trading the Sedins and trying to get a top 3 draft pick or an A+ prospect. As has been explained to you in the past, it's also possible for the Canucks to hold back some of their salary in a trade, so teams wouldn't necessarily need $12.2M in space to take them on.
The Canucks will continue to suck until the day Benning, Weisbrod, Linden, and Desjardins are all fired.
