Canucks 2020 free agent targets: Forward Evgenii Dadonov

Vancouver Canucks general manager Jim Benning will lose more than he’ll gain this offseason, due to the team’s difficult salary cap situation.

This is unless he can trade away some expensive contracts — namely room Brandon Sutter, Loui Eriksson, Jay Beagle and/or Sven Baertschi — in order to create some much-needed cap room. Easier said than done, however.

The Canucks have to try to work out a new deal for top goalie Jacob Markstrom and blueliners Chris Tanev (a pending UFA) and Troy Stecher (a pending RFA).
