I think they are going to have to buy out Lou. Every team in the league knows he will be available. He will not get traded. Regardless of the pipe dreams of Vancouver fans. Then one of the other two will get bought out. Still leaves them with scrubs. And if they let the Sedins goo that would be the smart thing to do. But look at Lou's contract....cannot say that organization is smart.

Both the Sedins are UFAs at the end of next season...although, given their age, I don't know how much of a raise they'd get.
The team needs an overhaul and can create cap space to get it through trade. I wouldn't be surprised if the Sedins took like 4M each to give them flexibility to really go for it. They'll be 34 when they start playing the first year of their next deal.

Yes. But then they cannot buy out one of the other contracts that is in the same price range. They are not going to buy out both Lou for 9 years and Garrison for 6 years contract length. That is a chunk of change. I also could see the Sedins getting $MM as stated above. Especially considering their age. Unless a team really close needs them and overpays.

Two teams Ive disliked/hated the most.

Detroit b/c they ran the tables for the better part of two decades and the Hawks stunk. Great run organization versus one under one of the all-time worst tyrants in the history of hockey. Just when you thought Detroit would begin to slide, they reloaded...dammit and the Hawks were so pitiful. But now they're sliding again and I dont see the magic happening again.

The Canucks, well. I can only equate them to a modern day version of Forrest Gregg and the Packers. Different sports and the Canucks have yet to pull a Charles Martin but thats the best I can come up with.

Zach Redmond had to be taken to the hospital after a flailing teammate gashed his leg in practice this morning.

I think they're only okay if they buyout Luongo. If they trade him, they're probably going to end up with some sort of salary back, which will erode the cap savings.

If they buy out both Luongo and Booth, they might be okay - b/c that will give them about $13.5m in room for 11 openings.

They can ATLEAST get a 1st for bobby Louuuuuu. If not, they'd trade Schneider. Buying out Luongo would be career suicide for Gillis.

They are assuming Lou gets traded. I just don't see it. And, as stated above, someone with some salary is coming back to them if there is a GM stupid enough to trade for him. So it is not like a total erase. I think it will be pretty tight.

Maybe we should start a thread and dedicate it like they did to us. They had a thread all about our cap issues and constantly tracked salary and calculated who we would have to cut loose. Thread was like 10 pages long, see that's why they'll never win a Cup in addition to the players even the fans **** of the hockey gods.

Yeah, they'd have it constantly open and would report possible infractions to their own mods. They are a unique breed, I'll give them that.
