Sweet. I can live with that.
Interesting that Weber wasn't qualified.

Vancouver, B.C. - Vancouver Canucks General Manager Jim Benning announced today that the Canucks have extended qualifying offers to five players:

Baertschi, Sven
Clendening, Adam
Corrado, Frank
Grenier, Alexandre
Markstrom, Jacob

The following players did not receive qualifying offers:

Andersson, Peter
Conacher, Cory
Eriksson, Joacim
McMillan, Brandon
Stanton, Ryan
Weber, Yannick
Zalewski, Michael

Canucks make qualifying offers to five players - Vancouver Canucks - News

Surprised we're not keeping Stanton and Weber though.

I thought we gave up a draft pick for Conacher but apparently it was just Dustin Jeffery.

I'd qualify Weber. He's a perfectly decent safety net in case everyone gets injured again. I'd rather have him than Stanton. Hell, I thought they would re-sign him ahead of Sbisa...

Correct.

Playnow has a bet for Canucks signing FAs on July 1st.

Less than 3.5 is paying out at 1.28.

Those are pretty good odds.

I don't see why Franson would sign here other than he's from BC. Canucks aren't even contenders.

Well we found out this year that a potential #1 will only cost a 3rd and 7th so not much of a gamble!

You are not wrong... funny how the Canucks went from Goalie Graveyard to providing the NHL with 2.5 NHL Calibre goalies within 5 years...

2.5 cuz Luongo..you could say got better here............

and then this..

http://sports.yahoo.com/blogs/nhl-pu...235356704.html

Did Pierre McGuire out the reason why the Kings terminated the contract of Mike Richards for a “material breach” of his deal?

While the NHL on NBC Sports analyst didn’t get into the hard details on TSN 690’s Melnick in the Afternoon show in Montreal, McGuire indicated the incident that led to the Kingss decision happened at a border crossing. Here is the link and we’ve displayed the transcript below. The segment starts at around the 9:17 mark.

Melnick: “Somebody in the know is telling me something happened with Mike Richards at a border crossing.”

Pierre: “Correct … I’m not going to talk about it until it’s made public. I have a pretty good idea of what’s happened.”

Melnick: “So the information I have, you can confirm that?”

Pierre: “Your information is probably pretty accurate.”

Earlier, ESPN.com said it was because of an ‘off-the-ice incident’ the team was made aware of Friday.

Several sources told ESPN.com the Kings were made aware of the situation Friday, approximately an hour after the first round of the 2015 NHL draft had begun.

The Kings announced they put Richards on unconditional waivers Sunday. He cleared, and a regular buyout was expected. At the time it seemed like LA was acknowledging a mistake from the prior summer by not using a compliance buyout on Richards, who hadn’t notched more than 44 points in a season with the Kings since his trade to LA in 2011.

Then the team announced the termination of the deal.

According to ESPN, the Kings had to pull the plug on any potential trades with Edmonton or Calgary at the draft Friday night. Both teams were reportedly vying for Richards’ services.

"He came right over to me," Oilers general manager Peter Chiarelli confirmed to ESPN.com. "He pulled me aside and said, 'Hey, Pete, this is going to come out. I had no idea. This is important you know so that talks [don't go any] further.'"

It’s still unclear how Richards will proceed moving forward. We still don’t have all the specifics on why the Kings made this decision, which actually saves them a large portion of Richards’ salary cap hit for the remainder of his deal – though there will be a cap recapture penalty.

The NHLPA released a statement saying it will consult with Richards, who probably was not a fan of seeing his 12-year $69 million contract ended with five years remaining.

Mike Richards sounds real serious for a GM to just halt all discussions of a trade.

Border incident really narrows it down to drugs, porn, weapons?

not the greatest reporting, it doesn't say what he did. It just said something happened at a border crossing and he got caught...

The story will come out soon enough methinks. Too many people know; particularly media. Just a matter of time, perhaps once any legal proceedings take place.
