The Canucks have also placed defensemen Brad Lukowich, Michael Funk and Lawrence Nycholat on waivers, thus likely removing them from the active roster as well.
|Daniel Sedin||Kevin Bieksa||Roberto Luongo|
|Henrik Sedin||Christian Ehrhoff||Andrew Raycroft|
|Ryan Kesler||Alex Edler|
|Pavol Demitra||Mathieu Schneider|
|Alex Burrows||Sami Salo|
|Mikael Samuelsson||Willie Mitchell|
|Steve Bernier||Shane O'Brien|
|Kyle Wellwood||Aaron Rome|
So, with injuries to both Mathieu Schneider, Jannik Hansen and Pavol Demitra eliminated from the opening day roster equation, the Canucks have an active roster of 22 players at an annual cap hit of $55.3 million, a clear million underneath the cap ceiling. Questions will rise when injuries heal and space may be needed to be made to fit these players in.
