Canucks Issue Qualifying Offers to Schroeder, Weise, and Tanev

The Vancouver Canucks have issued qualifying offers to players Jordan Schroeder, Dale Weise, and Chris Tanev. The Canucks will retain their rights and these three players will be restricted free agents on July 5.

Schroeder’s qualifying offer was one-year, two-way at $850,500. He played in 31 games with the Canucks last season scoring three goals and putting up nine points. It is expected Schroeder will re-sign with the Canucks, but may hold out for a little bit in hopes of receiving a one-way contract from the Canucks.

The Canucks should be willing to give him a one-way contract since Schroeder will become eligible for waivers this coming season.

Weise was qualified at one-year, one-way at $676,500. Last season, he held out until July 25 because he was seeking a one-way deal. This season, it is a good chance he will accept his qualifying offer, but may want a two-year term like Tom Sestito. The Canucks and Weise are reportedly close to agreeing on an extension.

Tanev received at least a one-year, two-way contract at $850,500. It is expected he will reject the qualifying offer as he will be looking for a multi-year contract with a much higher raise.
