Well I'd be good with trading Tanev IF we landed FransonJovocop wrote:The Canucks only have $4.35m cap space left with a 20 players roster. Unless a player over a $1m (Tanev?) is traded, I just can't see how they can fit in a $3.3m contract with the remaining cap space.Strangelove wrote: Sign Tanev, offer-sheet BC-boy Franson at $3.3m per on a 2-year deal (UFA in 2 years).
Have faith in David Booth.
(if Leaves match, BC-boy Franson comes home to Vancouver in 2 years as a UFA).
There are other ways to get under the cap in time.
For example Booth will be healthy when the time comes.
He could be traded if we sweetened the pot with a nice draft pick... or retained some salary.
Mind you, I have a lot of faith in David Booth.
If worse comes to worse you send Booth down, giving you an extra ~ $950K.
That gives you cap-room for $550K Santorelli and some other scrub.
Oh fuck it, I'm not sure how we'd do it exactly but it CAN be done!
I just want Franson on this team and/or fuck up the Leaves real good.
