Jovo also couldn't really be dealt until FA is over - or the top dmen are already signed... until then, no team is going to want to give up any decent value - even in terms of futures - if they feel they can address their need on defense through FA.

on June 26,2005 Jovo turns 29 yrs old.

I'd want to know what the ufa age will be under the new cba.If it's lowered to 30,then the team aquiring Jovo has his rights for 1 yr.

The only Wang would ok giving up cheap youngsters would be if the isles had an extension in place before a trade was agreed upon.He nixed Carney and Witt trades because they were short term fixes.

Jovo is signed for the next 2 yrs as well, so UFA age isn't really a factor.

Come to think about it, I don't know if the Isles would be a good target... they don't really have a lot of youngsters that they could move for Jovo, and with Yashin's salary, and Peca's in place, it might be better for them to find cheaper replacements for their 3 outgoing guys than a $5mill Jovo.

As PG said, the only reason that it makes sense to move him is if the canucks get Niedermayer on defense, making it necessary to move Jovo's contract (while not able to cut payroll elsewhere).
I don't think you will see the Canucks sign Neids just so they have to trade Jovo as a salary dump. I think you would see the the Canucks do a little constructive rostering instead. Actually I think you will a few teams caught in a salary cap squeeze do similar changes.

There is no reason, other than it is allowed & no problem without a salary cap for any NHL team to carry a 23 man roster or have 4 forward lines. Rather than dump Jovo if Neids is signed, I could see the Canucks shorten their roster to fit the cap.
Not re-signing Malik $1.55 mil, May $0.9 mil, Ruutu $0.6 mil and keeping Kesler $0.8 mil down on the farm frees up almost $4 million alone while leaving open roster spots that allows minors to be brought up to cover for injury.

jovo signed a 3 year extension on Jan 25, 2003. Assuming the extension kicked in at the end of that season, then the 03/04 is the first year, the 04/05 season is the 2nd (assumming the reports about it counting are correct), and the 05/06 would be the last year. He would then be 30 years old and a potentail UFA.

Basically, the value of Jovo is a 1 year rental unless a team can convince him to sign long term.

I actually think Jovo's starting to get underrated around the board ( especially after the world championships ). He SHOULD be worth quite a bit of return, but right now, you're not getting proper value for him. If you did, I would seriously consider trading him if we were getting Niedermeiyers ( waaayy too much salary if you keep them both. Niedermeiyer is more for less ). I'd probably trade Sopel instead. He'll get decent value and IMO, shouldn't be making 2 mill yet..

I'd also like to keep Salo.

Not enough for Vancouver to pull the trigger.
