Gotta wait out the five or six garbage deals that expire the next two years.
Over the next two seasons all these bad contracts will be gone. What’s the worry? After this up coming shoestring budget flat cap Covid season all of Sutter, Pearson, Baertschi, Edler, Spooner, Benn will go bye bye then just one more season of Eriksson, Roussel, Beagle, Luongo etc.

That’s basically what I said. But thanks for your input. :lol: Don’t lump Edler in with all those useless tits. His contract is fine anyways. He’s still the teams 3rd best D man. I think he will re- up for a cheaper deal to stay here.

Yeah Edler may re-sign, he lives in Vancouver now with his Italian Vancouver raised wife. But that also depends on the development of lefties - Juolevi and Rathbone and the return of lefty - Tryamkin. As we’ve witnessed with Tanev, Stecher and Markstrom, Benning isn’t exactly a loyalist, he mean business

I agree about Eddy. He returns for a deal for sure.

Good point about the lefties in Ratbones and Olaf. Olaf has to earn a spot and show something soon. I’d still look for another vet to bring in. They are one injury from Jordie Benn playing in the top 4. I don’t count on Tryamkin returning. If he does, great but I’m not counting on it. But Edler is still effective so if you’re going to let him walk they better make damn sure at least of of those kids is ready to play hard minutes, because Edler eats a lot of tough minutes.

Reinhart was a restricted free agent whose arbitration hearing was scheduled for Tuesday.
The 24-year-old appeared in all of Buffalo's games for a third straight season in 2019-20, finishing with 22 goals and 50 points.

He signed a 1 year extension after the end of last season, so how that lines up with the next NHL season I don’t know but Podkolzin and him have one more season they are tied to over there so in that I assume they be arriving the same time, when that is I don’t know

Pod could join Canucks late in 2020-21 after his KHL season cuz it will be on an ELC.

Probably not Tree though cuz the cutoff for RFAs to sign should come before the KHL season ends.

But I guess with Covid anything is possible...

Usually it would be impossible for an RFA in the KHL to sign, but this year the RFA cutoff date is up in the air.

Ben Kuzma @benkuzma
Benning offered UFA right winger Leivo a similar deal to the one-year, US$875,000 contract he signed with Calgary on Saturday.
Levio, 27, had 19 points (7-12) in 36 games last season before suffering a fractured knee cap.
