MAJOR | Latest report has the Canucks in a unique position: Not for the good reasons

We were fully aware of the cap he'll the Canucks were in. While Rutherford and Allvin swore that the cap maneuver was one of their prime objectives when they took over, they have yet to make any improvements in that regard.

PuckPedia has released the salary cap projections ahead of the 2023-2024 season and the Canucks sit atop the list. They top the list as the team with the most spending and the only who's projected to be over the cap with over $1.5M in exceedings:

‘'The site is rolled over to the 23-24 season! Team pages now show the cap picture for the upcoming season with a proj. $83.5M Cap.

With initial projected rosters, #Canucks  are already over the cap, while #Bolts & #Flames  have minimal space to work with.''

This surely isn't good news for the Canucks in the midst of retooling. When you don't have any money to spend, you can only rely on what you have under contract to improve.

There's already been speculation that the Canucks were aggressively shopping Conor Garland who carries a $4.95M AAV on the cap. While there hasn't been much talk about Tyler Myers being moved, it is also expected that he'll be gone once his bonus is paid.

The Canucks have made their intentions clear about next year's playoff, if that's their goal they'll definitely need to add to their core and some shopping needs to be done!
