Kukla's Korner Hockey

from Tony Gallagher of the Vancouver Province,
Judging by all the cap room the Canucks are generating, it’s becoming increasingly clear that a goaltender is going to be included on the shopping list of general manager Jim Benning.
The difficulty here is that by moving Jason Garrison for nothing in the deal with Tampa, Benning will need one, and a good one. What the strength of this team was, that anyone could always count upon when it was playing right, was the back end. They were solid back there, with a great top five that was threatening to become a solid top six with Frank Corrado getting better. But with Garrison’s departure for nothing but cap space, there probably is going to be a need now to get more depth in goal, given the way the back end looks at the moment. Yes, Alex Edler, Kevin Bieksa, Chris Tanev and Dan Hamhuis comprise a very solid top four, but after that the depth drops off quicker than the Marianas Trench.
