Nice to see Brockstar get his contract done. Great cap hit for us, although we might have to pay him more later. If he proves he's a superstar, I have no problem paying him. 3 years is a great term for us as well. We should have Petey & Hughes 2nd contract done by then and we can see where Brock fits in. We'll also have Eriksson, Beags, Rooster and Louongo off the books, so it should give us a lot of flexibility.
Also, Tanev, Markstrom, Schaller, Leivo, Sutter, Pearson, Baertschi, Edler, Benn, and Spooner will be off the books in a year and two.

Some of those players are worth replacing and will need to be. Others.... not so much.

Benning’s got this

Meanwhile in Toronto, their Capologist is dropping the ball

Leaves Assistant GMs Gilman and Pridham both have Capologist on their resume, you don’t think they have something to say?

I’m not sure. I’d hate to presume shit like other posters

It’s not presumptive when both Pridham and Gilman had once held the position of “Capologist”

Yeah it's nearly half the roster, but you'll still need to replace the bodies.

Two top-4 dmen and a 1B goalie alone could cost upwards of $18M in a couple years.

Why you keep on drafting and signing FA college guys in hopes one will turn up to be a top 4 dman like Tanev is and likely Stecher.

In two years Juolevi, Tryamkin and Woo all likely will be in our defense full time and properly developed.

Then you'd hope at least a couple guys out of Rafferty, Brisebois, Chatfield, Eliot, Teves, Rathbone, UTUNEN! make it.

Rafferty and Utunen are looking like solid pickups and ones to keep tabs on.

DiPietro will have two years of AHL duties by then as well, so he should be a quality 1B guy behind Demko who should have taken over #1 spot. Then Silovs taking over in Utica to start his development into the pros.
A long time ago, a baseball player remarked: "If I owned a ballclub, I'd hire a $5,000 coach and a $15,000 scout."

I think she we should take turns ranting ceaselessly like rabid dogs in heat about how we only have 3 guys signed 5 years from now and nobody signed for 10+ years (truth be damned!!) and how Benning is OBVIOUSLY running this franchise into the ground with a "win now" style of managing and lack of planning.. I mean seriously, how can we even have a franchise with NO players signed?!?

MADNESS!!!!

Hopefully, two years from now, the Canucks can have some cheap entry level contract players ready, Woo, Podkolzin, Hoglander, Juolevi and Lind.
