Isn't he going to arbitration? Or are you saying he has a deal soon to be announced.

*edit*

Oh so I did a little googling and it seems he has no arbitration rights. Right? So he really has no options if he wants to stay in the NHL.
The only HW the Canucks need

Right no rights. :mrgreen:

I'd say Tanev is trying for something like $1.5 per on a two year deal or #1.3 per on a 2 year.

Gillis & Co probably trying to get him wrapped up for just over a mil.

Although I wouldn't be surprised if this is a sign-and-trade.

If Garrison plays the right side with Edler, they might be happy with this on the RS:

Bieksa, Garrison, Corrado, Weber.

Of course they'd need 2 LS guys coming in if that's the case (Murray & Alberts??).

I dunno, just silly summertime speculation....

I am guessing Gillis wants 3 years at $1.5/year. cheap, and still gives 1 last contract as a RFA.
The Cup is soooooo ours!!!!!!!

Would love to have Cody, but once one of our rookies makes the 3rd/4th line we only have about 1.9 mill in cap space left. It will be interesting to see what Grabo signs for.

Yeah, we'd be very tight to the cap.

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) / Brad Richardson ($1.150m) / Jannik Hansen ($1.350m)
Tom Sestito ($0.750m) / Schroeder ($0.600m) / Dale Weise ($0.750m)
DEFENSEMEN
Dan Hamhuis ($4.500m) / Kevin Bieksa ($4.600m)
Alexander Edler ($5.000m) / Chris Tanev ($1.500m)
Jason Garrison ($4.600m) / Cody Franson ($3.300m)
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: $64,153,333; BONUSES: $0
CAP SPACE (21-man roster): $146,667


Only 21 players there. :look:

But I think Gilman could find a way to make it work.

Weber is capable of filling in at forward.

We get under the cap for the first coupla games and then someone like Booth goes on LTIR

... and we callup Santorelli/Lain/Jensen?

I dunno... trade Booth and retain half his salary?

Gilman can do this... somehow.

Leaves will probably match anyway, just offer-sheet Franson at #3.3m to screw them over! :thumbs:

With 21 players roster, the Canucks still have about $2.8m left. Assuming Alberts @ $800k-$900k, MG still has slightly under $2m to improve the roster. Should the Canucks try to sign a veteran centre as a backup plan?? Reasoner or Steckel for less than $1m?

I'd be happy with Steckel as the 4th line C.

As expected, Alberts re-signed with the Canucks. Who's next? Steckel??

$600k for Alberts... not bad.

Leaves a little room to make a depth signing up front.

Ladies and Gentlemen, your 2013-2014 Vancouver Canucks:

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) / Brendan Gaunce ($1.057m) / Brad Richardson ($1.150m)
Dale Weise ($0.750m)
DEFENSEMEN
Alexander Edler ($5.000m) / Kevin Bieksa ($4.600m)
Jason Garrison ($4.600m) / Dan Hamhuis ($4.500m)
Chris Tanev ($1.500m) / Yannick Weber ($0.650m)
Frank Corrado ($0.599m) / Andrew Alberts ($0.600m)
GOALTENDERS
Roberto Luongo ($5.333m)
Eddie Lack ($0.750m)

So much for the overhaul! :shock:

We will really need Corrado and Tanev to step up, and our forward depth scares me a little, especially up the middle. If I were Gillis I really would have been pushing for that Grabo contract at $3 million to shore up the center position. Maybe he tried :hmmm:

Corrado would most likely start the season in Utica. I would assume that MG would sign another veteran centre to challenge Schroeder, Lain and Gaunce for a spot. Steckel or Reasoner could come cheap and provide MG some options.

As for Grabo, I just don't think the Canucks have enough cap space to sign him.
