from the Vancouver Province,
With the addition of Linden, the team’s roster now sits at 21 players with a salary cap hit of $46.46 million. The NHL’s salary cap this coming season is $50.3 million.
But Nonis strongly hinted that the Canucks are in a wait-and-see mode for the moment in terms of additional players—notably someone who can score goals—whether through signing a free agent or making a trade.
“We’re still looking,” said Nonis. “I would add another defenceman if I could. There hasn’t been a forward out there so far from a free-agent standpoint that made sense financially, or if it did make sense financially it wasn’t an upgrade on what we had. So we’ll keep the powder dry and when an opportunity comes we’ll move.
“There might be a free agent that comes available at numbers that make sense, but I would say more than likely if we were to add to our forward group it would be through the trade route.”
