Did the Canucks qualify all of them? I can't see why they would qualify Parent and Oreskovich, but who knows?
Weise and Lack have been qualified.
@elliottpap: Canucks asst GM Gilman confirms Cory Schneider, Dale Weise and Eddie Lack all tendered qualifying offers ahead of deadline.
Gragnani would also be qualified but not so sure about Oreskovich and Parent.

I got the feeling that their first priority was to not lose him as UFA, so they got him to his 80 games... however, I agree they probably noticed in the process that he was about as effective as Patrick Coulombe.
..well clearly Bieksa, Ballard and Edler were hurt and/or off, Rome got hurt, we ended up overplaying Salo regardless of Gragnani playing yet we still managed to win enough games to finish first overall so the MAG thing seems much ado...
I heard the Canucks do not intend to keep Rome as well. Bit of a surprise there, I really liked him and thought he was a great 5-6 D-man for what he brought to the table & his salary. Personally, I'd take him over Baltard.
