Canucks roundtable: Who is the most important UFA to extend?

The Vancouver Canucks have some valuable players in their roster that, if general manager Jim Benning can’t afford to re-sign or come to terms on an extension with, will soon be heading to the open market as unrestricted free agents.

Everything was going according to plan for the Canucks this season and right when all the hard work was finally going to be worth it, right when the Canucks were about to prove themselves a worthy playoff team, COVID-19 struck and shut down the NHL.

The hard work and incredible maneuvering of trades over the past year by Benning to acquire a playoff-ready team had finally arrived, only to be ripped away by the world’s currently disastrous circumstances.
