Now that the Canucks have bought out OEL's massive contract, they have some wiggle room to use once the free agency market opens up.

Frank Seravalli recently published a list of the most intriguing names among restricted free agents that would not be tendered qualifying offers. According to his reports, the former 2nd Round Selection Mackenzie Blackwook will be walking into free agency freely since the Devils have chosen not to retain his rights.
26, Blackwood showed promising performances earlier in his career, but things have gone south for him in New Jersey, especially since Akira Schmid and Vitek Vanecek passed him on.
Patrik Allvin said he be looking to add reclamation projects to their line-up. Perhaps an experienced netminder to back-up Thatcher Demko could do the trick? It's known that Ian Clarke, the Canucks' goaltending coach, is quite skilled with the big-format cage keepers. Standing at 6'04'' and quite athletic, he fits the bill. What if the Canucks acquired him and try to have Clarke fix him in order to flip him for assets?
At this point, it's quite unclear how Allvin will handle his goaltending situation. If Blackwood were to sign a contract offer under $2M, he'd definitely be an intriguing option for a 1A and 1B setup.
