  • The 2019-20 regular season is fast approaching and one of the Canucks’ top forwards is still without a contract.
  • As reported by Dan Murphy, the Canucks and Boeser’s representatives have had ongoing discussions as recent as several hours ago, but they are unfortunately nowhere near agreeing to a deal.
  • Vancouver’s first pre-season game is on Sept. 16, against the Calgary Flames and the winger will most likely be sitting on the sidelines.
  • Murphy mentions that a bridge deal is the most likely result of these discussions.
  • Whether that is the reported four-year contract, or something closer to a three-year deal with a smaller cap hit, it appears that the seven-year deal that most fans hoped for, is not going to be the outcome.
  • The Canucks currently have just over $4.9-million in cap space, but are one player over the 23-player roster limit.
  • With that amount of room and limited flexibility on the roster, Vancouver have the lower-AAV, short-term deal as the only realistic option if they want to get a deal done before the season starts on Oct. 2.
  •  Boeser is one of several RFAs that are still waiting to agree on a deal before the season starts.
  • If Werenski was the first domino to fall, then maybe we’re not too far off from seeing the push notification on our phones that Boeser has signed a new contract.
