In the modern-day NHL, there is an increased focus on getting the highest value out of players. Taking up as little cap space as possible, while also earning some MVP-calibre seasons might just make some front offices ecstatic.
In an offseason that can shape the future of the franchise, the Vancouver Canucks might be moving on from some key members of their team’s recent history.
Everyone’s favourite topic of discussion that rarely happens, buyouts are just one way for a general manager of an NHL team to admit that they made a mistake and need a way to get rid of it.
It’s been 18 years since the Canucks have had competition in Vancouver for a sports team in one of the major four leagues in North America, but in a recent interview with CBC, NBA Commissioner Adam Silver has high hopes for that to change.
Amidst rumours that the Canucks organization is on the brink of making a front office personnel change, John Shannon on Sportsnet 650 denies it all and says that they support Benning more than people think.
