Probably was worth a couple extra million per season to keep Petro.

More than half of Vancouver Canucks' players test positive for COVID-19, source says
https://www.espn.com/nhl/story/_/id/311 ... ource-says
More than half of the players on the Vancouver Canucks have tested positive for COVID-19, a source confirmed to ESPN. Additional names are expected to be added to the team's COVID-19 protocol list besides the 14 who appeared on Saturday.

Some players are symptomatic, and according to several sources there are a few who are in "rough shape." One Canucks player told ESPN he hadn't heard from a team representative about any players going to the hospital, but he had heard of teammates receiving IV treatments for severe dehydration, presumably at their homes. A source told ESPN that at least three Canucks coaches have tested positive for the virus as well. In addition, many family members of players have tested positive and are experiencing symptoms, according to sources.

It took Binner stopping 50 of 51 shots. Can't expect even the best goalies to do that consistently. But it was a heck of a game. MUCH better all around.

Oof, rough season all around when we’re in the hunt but I’m thinking about next year. Clearly losing Petro hurt a lot. The Blues must just need big bodies on D to clog the lanes. I think losing Sunny has hurt a lot too. That and Tank and Parayko not at 100%.

I’d still try to get Schwartz resigned, but one has to think his price would drop below Schenn’s. $5.75m-$6m over 6? Still gets him a raise, but not Schenn money.

I have a feeling there are still enough pieces to be a contender if you reload right. Keep Schwartz and replace Hoffman and Sanford with guys who will play the system. Get Tank, Sunny, Thomas and Parayko healthy. Bozak fit this team way better than I expected. If you can Gunnarson him (get him back at half the salary) then he’s a useful guy to have around. Bank on Kyrou, Mikkola and Thomas taking another step and Krug pulling a Faulk and being better in his second year... and find a way to replace one D man with a guy who better fits the system. (Possible?)

I have no clue how to find the right Dman. Everything else is getting the right guys resigned and letting the right guys go.

Top9 of ROR, Perron, Tank, Schenn, Schwartz, Thomas, Kyrou, Sunny, Blais/FA with a bottom 3 of Blais/Bozak/FA, Barbie, Clifford/MacMac

D of Parayko, Faulk, Krug, Scandella, Dunn, Mikkola, Bortz

G Binner, Husso

I’m a former goalie, so this analysis is probably garbage lol
