Canucks RFAs, UFAs & Contracts

Given that Philly seems to be blowing themselves up today—dropping Richards, Carter, and a few million in salary (and hey, with a sad 106 point season, who can blame them? clearly a pile of under-performing deadbeats…) while picking up an extra $51 million investment (holy goalie, batman!)— it seemed like a good time to post the Canucks roster situation.  With a new salary cap blowing over $64 million, plenty of dealing will be done in the coming days and weeks.

Canucks.com recently put up a handy, comprehensive list to everyone on their roster, and their current contract terms.  All the info is below, but in short: the good/bad news (depending on your favorite flavor) is that you have Roberto Luongo till 2022, and Kevin Bieksa until around.. well, next Friday.

Depending on how big a share of that $64 million he’s looking for, anyway.

Here’s the list:
