The Vancouver Canucks have a number of pending free agents — which of them should be re-signed?
With the 2016 NHL Trade Deadline passing the Vancouver Canucks by, fans will have to wait until the offseason to witness the roster changes they want to see.
One way or another, change will come – the Canucks have a sizeable list of players who will become free agents on July 1st. So, should any of them be signed to new contracts? And, since GM Jim Benning‘s roster decisions can sometimes baffle fans and pundits alike, will any of them be re-signed?
Here is a list of nine pending free agents — four restricted and five unrestricted — with whom Canucks management will have to make these decisions in the next few months.
For each player, we’ll try to answer both questions: should the player be re-signed, and is it likely that the general manager will re-sign them?
For some of the players, the answers to both questions are crystal clear; for other players, less so.
