Lukowich makes 1.5, bury him in the minors, and sign Schneider as our #7?
If Schneider signs for 1 million it would be more cap friendly, only call Lukowich up if there's a major injury. Hell or sign Schneider and dump Lukowich for a 4th-7th round pick. I figure we are over the cap now, so someone making some money will be moved.
Assuming Hodgson makes the team, we could be saying bye bye to Wellwood. Or if Hodgson is looking like a tweener and we need Wellwood for that support, we could waive Lukowich and replace him with Rome or Nycholat, but have to find the extra $500k elsewhere.
What a great deal by Gillis... we need to make some cap moves of our own now. I would hazard to guess that Bieksa will probably be on his way out as well... lots of value out there though his contract could be a roadblock for some.
Erhoff being one of the fastest defensemen in the league really gives Vancouver another weapon 5 on 5 for puck-rushing out of the zone. Erhoff is a good passer but he really shines when he's rushing the puck so I hope we see much more of that next year.
