The Vancouver Canucks will have to clear some cap room this offseason, making Jay Beagle a possible trade candidate.
Vancouver Canucks general manager Jim Benning put himself in a salary cap find following giant offseason spending sprees in 2018 and 2018.
On one hand, you can’t fault Benning for spending money (while he had plenty of cap space) in an effort to improve the team.
