It's a weird move. The guys already have to feel like crap, why bury them further? It would be like listing all the UFAs you don't re-sign then saying about how their numbers have declined. Odd.
I agree. I wonder if the Canucks feel a need to do this because their prospect pool is relatively thin and they're worried about the media and fan base asking why they didn't sign these players when they had the chance.
