The deal is also a huge bargain for the Canucks, as they have now lifted their 2009/'10 cap hit to a mere $33.2 million for only 11 players signed. Burrows joins a talented core of players, but there are a number of UFA's heading into the summer to deal with, so concerns are there.

There are a number of RFAs to deal with as well, plus you could add Cory Schneider to the table as well and his $1.084 million hit, but for now, this is the core of the team which is signed for the $33.2 million. Not a lot, but what is there isn't too bad.
