The Canucks have dressed a long list of needs entering the 2023 off-season, and their first objective will be to shed some cap space. The reports indicate that the Canucks have already begun their shopping.

The colored Insider, Eliotte Friedman, was on Donnie and Dhali earlier today and stated that the Canucks could in on possibly the top free agent blueliner to hit the market this summer.
The Interest is Mutual
Damon Severson, who spent the first years of his career with the New Jersey Devils, will be hitting the market since the parties have announced they'd be parting ways.
‘'According to Friedman, if #Canucks can clear cap space, absolutely they can call NJD for Severson's rights. Severson, he would absolutely be interested in a place like Vancouver.''

Damon Severson, a 2nd Round Pick in 2012, is a right-handed shot, 6'02'', and 205 pounds defenseman. The author of 79 points in 161 regular season games over the past two years, he's very well known for his two-way game and could potentially be an excellent match to Quinn Hughes. Coming off a 6-year and $25M deal, the expectation is that he'll hit the market with a $36M over 6 years in mind.
Severson is considered one of the top two assets in the game when looking into advanced statistics. Adding a defenseman of his type would most likely complete the team's right side, along with Filip Hronek and Ethan Bear.
Severson will turn 29 in August; tying him to the Canucks until he's 35 years of age doesn't feel right. What if the Canucks were to manage to get him under contract in the 5 to mid-5s for 5 years? Would that make more sense? Would that be a better fit for their plans moving forward?
