Here is a list of the upcoming UFAs and RFAs for the Canucks. Gillis has some big decisions to make. Why don't we trying and anticipate some of his moves? Far better than rehashing what might have been. Defense: Bieksa = On next year's roster - the number one priority to get re-signed. Erhoff = Gone - will be expecting a significant raise over his $3.1 m - won't get it in Vancouver. Salo = Gone - he plans on playing one more year but I don't see him getting enough from the Canucks for him to stay. Alberts = On - My favorite whipping boy from last Spring is less of a pylon and since we are bulking up, his size keeps him on the roster. Likely to crack the roster: Tanev = On full time next season - showed he is definitely NHL ready. Connauton = Unless he is a training camp bust he should be the next defensive prospect to get a lot of NHL time. Forwards: Lapierre = On - He came in with the reputation of being a head case. With the adjustments being made to be more aggressive, that ain't necessarily a bad thing. Higgins = Gone - I would have liked to see him stay but I keep hearing about his wanting to return back east. Hansen = On - I don't expect any offer sheets before July 1st but I do expect his to get a bit of a raise and stay. Loved the new angry Dane especially on the penalty kill. Torres = On = Hit someone Raffi - Keep working on those hands as well. Glass = Gone - As the series went on he spent an increasing amount of time on the bench. We need fourth liners that can contribute on a regular basis. Tambellini = Gone - Loved the ethic but just too small to make an impact. Oreskovich = On - Big, can be mean and can skate. A good combination for a big man. I expect him to play a bigger role next year. Likely to crack the roster: Hodgson = If next year isn't his time, trade him. Shirokov = Reports that he has learned some defensive responsibilities to go along with his offensive skills. Why not try him in place of the injured Raymond on the second line?
