    Last 182 regular season games, Holtby is .900 and 3.15 gaa

    Has 1 more year left of his contract (4 500 000), he will be 32 when the next season begins.
    -if he still is in the NHL that is.

    Any Canucks fans think he might be a candidate for buyout?

    From low 2's and mid .920's to . 3.15 gaa and .900.

    Can he make a comeback, or is his career done for?.

    Okay, what's with that "last 182 RS games" cut-off point? As such it looks kinda arbitrary.

    182 RS games goes back to the beginning of the 2017-18 season, where he struggled in the RS but ultimately won the Stanley Cup in Washington.

    It's exactly 4 season for Holtby.

    Not a buy out candidate. Good mentor for Demko. And it would cost more to buy him out + sign a replacement.

    Besides Vancouver has much better buy out targets.

    His contract is structured to be very buyout friendly for Vancouver. He'd cost them 500k in cap space this season and $1.9 million next season when Eriksson, Beagle, Roussel, Luongo, and Virtanen (if his contract is not terminated) all come off the books.

    You would have to think this was intentional, to expose him in the expansion draft and buy him out if he's not taken, now that Demko has proven he's the starter. With that being said... you never know with Benning.

    I don’t know why Canucks fans would want to buy him out. The Canucks aren’t contending and it’s not like they’re married to him. It’s only one year. And he’s a decent stopgap to mentor a young goalie.

    Because Pettersson and Hughes are RFA, they have little cap space, and there's several positions to fill. They can't afford to spend $4.3 million on a bottom tier backup goaltender. If their cap wasn't so badly managed, I would agree with you.

    If Holtby is bought out and the Caps lose one of their young goalies to Seattle, I wouldnt be shocked to find Holtby signed at a low dollar deal. It seems odd that he has fallen apart at such a young age

    And yet dim jim drops 4mill+/yr on this guy with demko already on roster instead of re-signing toffoli, who he gave up a prospect and a 2nd for. Brilliant stuff.

    His name was totally dropped for potential buy outs but I doubt we will buy him out.

    His value has cratered, no doubt. His game was always mental, though, and he's not old. It wouldn't be surprising to see him rebound, be it with new goalie coaching, surroundings, or a sports psychologist. I too have thought that he might end up with the Capitals again before his career is done.

    It’s crazy that they’d have to buy him out, jimbo really boned the Canucks’ cap situation

    He’s been done as a starter in this league for a while.

    Why buyout when you can just expose?

    I can’t think of many goalies, with pedigree, that Seattle would give a hard miss to Holtby for?

    (or am I getting my seasons mixed here?)

    I would buy Myers out and just eat the year of Holtby.

    Ehhh… he has invaluable experience that he can pass on to demko. He’s not what he was but he’s a good mentor and a solid back up

    Reports had him at a Nationals game this week. I dont know but its possible that he still has their home there. You are right. He is just 32 and doesnt have any history of injuries that would effect his play. His game is mental and he's a zen kind of man.

    You know what's funny? You could do this with a lot of goalies' surface stats and it would paint an interesting picture.

    Just for example:

    Braden Holtby: 182 games, 3.15 GAA, .900 SV Pct
    Player A: 195 games, 2.75 GAA, .909 SV Pct
    Player B: 201 games, 2.83 GAA, .913 SV Pct

    Player A is Carey Price, who a lot of people say is a top 5 goalie in the world. Player B is Frederik Andersen, who a lot of people think is washed and should be a backup at this point in his career.

    It's just interesting how you can take the player away from the name and the stats will tell you one thing, but the name will carry a different weight...

    Holtby has sucked for a while now. Most people already knew that. Jimbo clearly didn’t get the memo.

    Anybody who actually watched the games he played this year would have seen a) several where the team in front of him simply didn't show up and in which he actually played quite well despite awful stats and b) the fact that he started almost every tough game for the Canucks this year with Demko playing only 2 2nd -of-back-to-back-games this year (he lost both) while IIRC Holtby played 7. He was the cannon fodder that the Canucks used to shield Demko from any sort of tough games which makes me think that a) Holtby is nowhere hear as bad as Canuck fans claim and that b) Demko is nowhere near the God that Canuck fans claim (hope?). Me, I hope he goes to Seattle and plays well. Unless the Canucks acquire another sacrificial lamb to coddle Demko with he will almost certainly regress...
