Ferland is going to Vancouver for 4 years at $3.5 million AAV. That actually seems like a pretty good deal for the Canucks.

Hate this deal. We need for them to miss the playoffs next year.

More of an issue with term than the price. We could probably afford $3.5 million this season, but next season is going to be extremely tight. I imagine Ferland wanted term given his concussion history.

JBB has made it pretty clear he is done (other than selling Domingue off for nothing since he has no leverage as every other GM knows he can't keep 3 goalies) so I am pretty sure we weren't even bidding.

Cheaper than Killorn. Rumors were that he wanted 7M but that would have been a solid pickup for us at that price.

His lack of speed was probably the deciding factor in not going after him. He'd be the slowest guy on the team. Maybe the injuries too. With Volkov and some of the other beefier guys down in Syracuse I guess it wasn't a need.

Maybe he didn’t want to be here also.

Doubtful. Reports are he made the decision to go with Vancouver because of term.

Don’t kid yourself that Ferland wasn’t needed (whoever thinks that, be they fans or front office folk). He’s nasty to play against, and by now, all of us should agree that our team desperately needs any of that. The sad reality is that we’re stuck with fake power forwards like Killorn because of contracts.
