Last time I brought up Murray someone pointed out that he plays the left side exclusively.

So we'd probably be looking at something like:

Hamhuis - Bieksa
Edler - Garrison
Murray - Tanev
Alberts(??) - Weber

Corrado, playing top minutes in Utica, gets the call if there's a LTIR in the top 4.

It's either Murray or Alberts, no way we re-sign Tanev and get them both.

And yeah, if the Canucks are healthy then Corrado plays big minutes in the A.

Any extra cap room should be used on a forward or to facilitate a trade at some point in the season...

We signed Weber as a #7 and Corrado is a call-up #8. Waste of much-needed cap space to sign them all.

Also I think anything under 2 mill a season for Murray is pretty optimistic.

Murray at this point makes $1.5m max IMPO.

FORWARDS
Daniel Sedin ($6.100m) / Henrik Sedin ($6.100m) / Zack Kassian ($0.870m)
David Booth ($4.250m) / Ryan Kesler ($5.000m) / Alexandre Burrows ($4.500m)
Chris Higgins ($2.500m) / Jordan Schroeder ($0.600m) / Jannik Hansen ($1.350m)
Tom Sestito ($0.750m) / Brad Richardson ($1.150m) / Dale Weise ($0.750m)
Mike Santorelli ($0.550m)*
DEFENSEMEN
Dan Hamhuis ($4.500m) / Kevin Bieksa ($4.600m)
Alexander Edler ($5.000m) / Jason Garrison ($4.600m)
Douglas Murray ($1.500m) / Chris Tanev ($1.200m)
Andrew Alberts ($0.700m) / Yannick Weber ($0.650m)
GOALTENDERS
Roberto Luongo ($5.333m)
Eddie Lack ($0.750m)
------
CAPGEEK.COM TOTALS (follow @capgeek on Twitter)
(these totals are compiled with the bonus cushion)
SALARY CAP: $64,300,000; CAP PAYROLL: $63,303,333; BONUSES: $0
CAP SPACE (23-man roster): $996,667

* or Lain @ $0.600m

Remember we can't have that forward you crave unless we move out Burrows/Booth.

So yeah we're probably gonna run with something like you see above until the deadline at least.

But don't worry, the Great Strangelove has scientifically proven that lineup is as good as the 2010-11 lineup. :thumbs:

Luongo seems to have a pretty good relationship with Lack. :lol:

Eddie Lack ‏@eddielack
@strombone1 I DIDN'T DO IT I SWEAR!!!!!

Strombone ‏@strombone1
@eddielack I know for a fact it wasn't you cuz you'd probably still be out there trying to take the first tire off

Eddie Lack ‏@eddielack
@strombone1 if it was me I would leave a meatball as a signature card! #wetbandits

Strombone ‏@strombone1
@eddielack leaving a trail of sauce all the way back to your house.......

Yeah, there seems to be a generally good atmosphere among the goalies on the team. Andrew Raycroft was interviewed on Björklöven's website and after talking about negativity in Toronto and chaos in Colorado he says:
Luckily for me I got to play in Vancouver the following season, which gave me back much of the positive I feel for hockey. It was probably the most fun season I've had so far.

In Vancouver you had to compete for ice time with Roberto Luongo and Cory Schneider.

Fantasic guys that I still talk to on a regular basis, we're good friends. Everything worked well there with the team, the organisation, the city. We really liked it in Vancouver my wife and I.

Did somebody steal Roberto’s tires so they could pump them?

Guys like Murray, Alberts and Fistric will likely be taking pay cuts over what they made last year. The market for depth defenseman and forwards is obviously tight due to the lower cap.

Game one at Rogers Arena should be very loud with all the Lou cheers.

Let me predict the future.

At the home opener, Lou will get a standing ovation from the fans when the starting lineup/team is announced.

On Team 1040 the next day they'll be discussing about how it was complete BS and start a poll on when the city will turn on Luongo. To make sure they so they will have show after show and stupid caller after stupid caller talking about all the reason why someone should turn on him.

Some in the Vancouver media will write a column that is was BS that was completely orchestrated by Gillis, no the ownership, no Gillis, no the ownership....

Bountiful and other fan bases around will somehow rationalize the standing ovation as a classless move on the part of a classless fan base and classless organization.

You make it all seem so....pointless.

You've moved my post-playoffs melancholy up to pre-pre-season.

Certainly you do and I do and most true canuck fans do. The W is the only thing that matters. But beyond the first thing in my future prediction nothing involves those real fans.

They may pretend it's the win that is most important but it's obvious that even if the W happens they will constantly be looking for something wrong with those Ws.

Hell, we've talked about on various forms that there seemed to be a lack of accountability in the dressing room or that AV had lost the room. Another voice was needed and one that would make things perhaps uncomfortable for the players etc etc. For some reason the vancouver media instead of saying "hmmm perhaps Gillis a hockey man all his life from player, agent and GM also sees these things" it's "ownership forced him to hire Torts!" (btw Willes backed off that claim in a column a few days ago saying it was in fact Gillis' decision).

I really would love to be able to stream some decent hockey talk out of Vancouver while I'm in my office dodgin tornadoes but I quite simply can't. It's depressing really.

This is the best prediction of all summer thus far!

By the end of Sochi the whole country will be chanting Luuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu.
