The Vancouver Canucks have 22 days until they need to have qualifying offers issued for their RFAs.
FYI for those wondering: Clubs have until 5 p.m. ET on Oct. 7 to submit Qualifying Offers to their respective RFAs. Which those RFAs can begin signing as of noon ET Oct. 9. Those Qualifying Offers expire at 5 p.m. ET on Oct. 18.

The Canucks have a number of RFAs to issue QO’s to: Tyler Motte, Jake Virtanen, Adam Gaudette, Zack MacEwen, Troy Stetcher, Reid Boucher, Francis Perron, Justin Bailey, Nikolay Goldobin, Nikita Tryamkin, Guillaume Brisebois, Jalen Chatfield, David Pope, Jake Kielly, and Marc Michaelis.
A few of these are for player retention in the cases of Goldobin and Tryamkin, while a number fall into organizational depth moves.
The Canucks, in many cases, need to issue QO’s at 100% of the players 2019-20 salary. Here’s what those look like: Motte at $975,000, Virtanen at $1.25-m, Gaudette at $916,666, MacEwen at $847,500, and Stetcher at $2.35-m.
Vancouver has numerous UFAs to sign, too, so some tough decisions will be coming in the next three weeks.
