O'Reilly salary is only 1 million. Rest is signing bonuses. Damn...

But if Sabres buy him out, it's only for the $1 mil.

I don't know about full rebuild, Benning did drop the P word (playoffs) the other day.

Is it weird I'm happy and excited for all other NHL club that got significantly better and more competitive?

Canucks not so much, but I've grown to accept that we can't do what other clubs do.. Still my favourite team.. just lower expectations so I don't continually get disappointed. Because it hurts. A lot.

A lot of money for those two....
With the cap going up, expect player salaries to go up as well

That basically makes him impossible to buy out since the cap savings and $$$ savings would be insignificant.

If the Sabres were to buy him out after year 5 of 7, they'd still have a cap hit of $6.833M for years 6 and 7 then a cap hit of $0.333M for years 8 and 9.

Similar to Avery's columns so far, some perspective on Rich Clune's journey to and in the NHL.

Lack probably would have wanted something around 4M for 4 yrs, not exactly a value or bridge contact. If canucks didn't give him that, then he'd leave as UFA and we wouldn't even get a used jock for him in return.

Nothing wrong with posting opinions, armchair GMing and having a discussion....

It's gonna be a long offseason so expect more of it

Jake picks Stewart, Cederholm, and Boeser. Guess we know who the strongest guys are at camp.

Canucks are keeping Delorme so they can draft more Taylor Ellingtons

They are keeping Delorme incase Bennings draft picks are busts, so he can blame it on him.

Now we have the guy responsible for Calgary's Patrick White (Mark Jankowski) in charge of player personnel and player development.
