Jannik Hansen re-signed with the Vancouver Canucks to a 1-year, two-way contract.
It was NOT what Hansen wanted.

The retirement of Jeremy Roenick probably means very little to you Canadians, except that the odd-looking loudmouth guy is finally gone.
But I can honestly say that, as far as American hockey goes, there might not have been a more important player in the last two decades.

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.
