It’s early August, and the NHL is about as far off of the radar as it could possibly be. Free agency has cooled down, the draft is far in the rear-view mirror and the fact of the matter is that there aren’t a lot of stories to cover (side point: how stupid is it that the draft and free agency both get jammed together at the end of June/very start of July?).
However - there remain teams with holes (most of them) and players capable of filling those holes. We’ll start by considering free agent goaltenders.

The Vancouver Canucks have already had a few departures from last year's club, mostly through free agency. As the start to the season approaching, more changes are coming. So who's else is gone? Here's who I think has their ticket stamped for a ride out of town.

First, a quick rebuttal to a recent reader comment at FlamesNation. The comment reads as follows: “That’s actually the most terrible article I’ve ever read. I come for news and analysis, not this BS.”
Let me just say that I resent that and I believe the criticism is uncalled for. Furthermore, I’d like to make it clear that . . . oh wait a sec, it seems that for a very rare time, that remark wasn’t directed at me. My apologies, the defensiveness is just a force of habit.

Hindsight is a wonderful thing and many of us would look a hell of a lot smarter if we were able to go back in time and change some of our more dubious decisions. Remember that high school picture that you hoped would be quickly forgotten? Remember how you used to dress in those days? Did you think your favorite striped blue shirt would be gazed upon by millions of people on the internet years later when you became a massive celebrity? Looking back, probably not.
Yes, hindsight is often 20/20, particularly when it comes to hairstyles, tattoos and free agent signings.

The Vancouver Canucks announced today that they have re-signed Kyle Wellwood to a 1-year, $1.2m deal. With the top six forwards effectively set, this creates a log jam of players on the third line.
Something's gotta give... And soon.
