Bernier. Fine, whatever, someone needs to play in net.

Ouellet bought out. Ok. Probably wasn't going anywhere in the org with the old vets still under contract. Hicketts ready and hopefully Hronek to take over the PP soon. Get Saajarvi some fucking ice time.

Green brought back which I'm ok with. Vanek I'm not. They have kids who should be playing. This is completely ignoring the FUCKING TRADE PROTECTION THAT HOLLAND GAVE BOTH. My god.

Ken fills the shit out of his cap space before signing Larkin, Mantha and AA. Fan fucking tastic.

We saw Vanek in Vancouver last year and he put up some numbers (think he was on a 25 goal pace). Dude can still play. He wanted to stay and asked for a two year deal. The Canucks said no and moved him at the deadline. But to offer trade protection to a 35 year old? Wait what?

He can put up some numbers and help the PP but man is he slow and shot numbers are not favourable at all despite o-zone deployment(as far as I can recall anyways). Rather see a kid play and get the RFA contracts worked out than commit to Vanek with trade protection.

AA gets $3M. Thought he'd be trade bait.

Thought me might be. Might still be. They need his speed and skill though. Badly. Even if he doesn't tilt the ice in terms of shots, he'll be useful on the PK and he can actually score.

$6,127,956 without accounting for the ~4 mil that will be LTIR for Franzen. $10M should be enough for Larkin and Mantha.

Kenny is singlehandedly keeping the bridge deal concept alive.
