They need to sign another 4-5 players. They usually roll through the season with a 23 man roster.Jovocop wrote:The Canucks have 18 players signed with $5.7m remaining cap space. They just need another 3 - 4 players. The only one that could command anything over $1m is Tanev. They should still have room to sign a top-nine or cheap (old) top-six.
Tanev will be over $1M. Schroeder and Lain, assuming both are on the roster, are both over $1M. That’s $3.5Mish right there.
Then you have Weise, who will be about $700,000, and probably a depth defenseman who could easily be another $1M.
Plus the team will need a buffer for short term injury call ups.
Pretty easy to see how that $5.7M in remaining cap space will get eaten up pretty quick.
