The Canucks aren't going to have much money to spend, so I don't expect any big-name free agent signings.

Out
• Jan Bulis
• Bryan Smolinski
• Brent Sopel

In
• Ruslan Fedotenko
• Wade Brookbank or any other enforcer
• Marc Chouinard (for training camp)

Daniel Sedin ($3.575M) | Henrik Sedin ($3.575M) | Taylor Pyatt ($1.5M)

Comments
• Fedotenko's a guy that will go to the net and be willing to pay the price to score a garbage goal.
• Roberto Luongo gets run over too much, need an enforcer to serve and protect him.
• Jannik Hansen has probably proved this playoffs that he is an NHL calibre player and should play in this league.
• Would like to see Sopel back, but Edler's ready for the NHL.
• Barring any offersheets, Kesler should re-sign for around $1 million.
• Nonis said that he wouldn't mind giving Chouinard another go next year, so he can attend training camp, if he doesn't impress, attempt to trade him or send him to the minors again.

I think your analysis is pretty good... only one question: No Linden?
