Team Explanation
So many ridiculous ideas out there. This one is most likely. First the Vegas pick will probably be Sbisa. Then, the team has a bunch of RFA's to re-sign and there's no getting around the fact that they have to re-sign Miller. GM Benning hasn't really proven to be a big trade guy, so Tanev moving before July 1st seems unlikely to me. Also, since Tryamkin left, the Canucks can't really afford to trade any D-men without receiving one in return. The appointment of the hulking Grenier to the big club is likely early on, since he has a relationship with new coach Green, who really likes him and Gaunce. Goldobin has one foot in the graveyard, but I sense that Reid Boucher might give this team something. Canucks might re-sign Anton Rodin, just to see if their investment in this player is worth something. Most likely scenario? It is what it is.

    You're probably right but.... and a hard but.... might want to check over those numbers you are signing guys at way way overprice for bo, guddy and miller. and terms are off too. How would Reid boucher go from about 700 to 950. didnt do too much to earn that pay raise.

    At this point in his career I believe Miller will take a significant pay cut to play on an American contender in a 1b role.

    Just throwing numbers around. My point is they sign those guys. Miller I don't have any faith Canucks will get him cheaper than 5 per. It's the Canucks. Gudbranson is going to be overpaid. Team is desperate. I'd also be surprised if Bo signs for anything less than 5.

    Nilsson had signed in Sweden.
    I doubt Grenier will last more than a few games in the NHL even if Green liked him in Utica.
    If I were Vegas, I would pick Gaunce over Sbisa.
    I hope Benning will be able to trade either Edler or Tanev and get a decent return for them.
