    Sloppy seconds? Sure. Markstrom and Tanev could be excellent pieces provided they stay healthy.



    Not fin too!
    I wouldn’t call effective bottom 6 players sloppy seconds.

    @ 800k, if he can play half the games that's already worth it.

    Leivo is a solid player - if he can be equally effective after knee surgery. He isn't particularly great at anything, but he's also not bad at anything. Good utility player that works hard. Sad to see him go. Benning just couldn't move any dead cap.

    But seriously.... 4 players?

    I dont know man... how much cheaper can you get to sign a 800k player, that's pretty much league min that can take up ice time as a bottom 6 without being a huge liability. IMO Benning fucked up on this one for sure.

    Any legit NHL player playing for league minimum is a good deal. Seems like several of these "bottom feeders" have some upside potential as well. Or of they get displaced by the young talent coming from stockton, that's good too.

    No way these contracts hurt us.

    As for taking the Orcas cast-offs, I like that too, because that organization is poorly managed, so if they don't want em, I do.

    Another thing to consider as well is if we can keep the kids down at stockton then that is less for us to worry about for the expansion draft.

    I didn't think about that , but it's a good point. If you have a few young guys that will be impact players in a few years, better to keep them in the A and not have to expose them (or a current nhler) to expansion

    Never said anything to the effect of Leivo not being worth that contract. If he plays like he did before injury, its a total steal for a guy who has his skill and can move up and down the lineup. Benning did mess up by not moving salary out last year. And this year, it was damn near impossible so he just didn't have the cap room. He did sign Hawryluk, who I imagine he wanted due to his untapped offensive potential, but mainly the fact he plays a harder game than Leivo. Ideally, I imagine he would have liked to sign both for depth but 2020 is fucked and it just wasn't possible.

    There's inherent risk in taking on term for Tanev and Marky, but Leivo is a no-brainer imo.

    Flames reverse retro jersey could be blasty 2.0. Very exciting.

    The only worse jersey than Blasty is the pedestal and the '98 season had both.

    Strong retro Canucks look since so much of the team are recent Canuck players!
