    Alright... there was a thread started on the Canucks board posing the question of what to do with the money the Canucks will save if the Sedins retire after this season. An early solution that is favored by some fans is to take on bad contracts in exchange for picks.

    So, lay it on me. We got some cap space. What do you have to offer. Let's see what the market is at for your bad contracts.

    Obviously we'd be looking for draft picks and/or prospects.

    Every fanbase of non playoff teams throws this idea out there every year as if they think a real world owner will spend real money to buy a mid to low round pick.

    What would you want to take on Loui Ericsson’s contract if he wasn’t already on the Canucks?

    We all know this move is far beyond Benning’s capacity.

    This. It never happens. There's been a few instances of taking injured players which is covered by insurance or retiring players (Datsyuk) but that's because the team doesn't actually have to pay the contract.

    More likely, a non playoff team with lots of cap space can circle a good team in cap trouble like we've seen with the Blackhawks having to sell Byfuglien or Teravainen on the cheap. However this would require smart, forward thinking management so this wouldn't apply to the Canucks.

    Did Vegas not just do exactly this?

    They ate salary/cap on Brassard for a pick.

    This team has taken on bad contracts the last two years. The only difference being management brought them upon themselves and as nice as the idea of getting assets for taking capdumps is s I don't think they've ever showed serious interest in doing so.

    It says bad contracts, Bennett isn't on a bad contract lol, you're not following the rules of the OP, but I'll take the offer of Bennett for a 1st as high as Van's and I'd throw in a 3rd ;)

    The last thing this team needs is to be taking on others cap dumps,, we have enough of our own dumps allready. We just need to be bringing in our own kids and let them play.

    I'm just glad I share Brad and Living with him ;) Im told im a good management worker/managing things greatly, that's how you do well in life, is by managing yourself the way you want to live your life, right? I'd probably look pretty swift as a general manager of a hockey team just hopefully not the Oilers, because Drai would be moving cities first day on the job, I'd like for them to trade him for a couple young wingers and a defensive prospect, possibly more if it were up to me
