The Canucks have roughly $6 million in available cap space, but need to sign restricted free agents Chris Tanev and Dale Weise.
Canucks GM Mike Gillis wants to create more cap space, but isn't interested in trading Edler or Bieksa away for a minimum return.
This past week, the Canucks bought out defenseman Keith Ballard, but are still looking for ways to accumulate more salary cap space.
Meanwhile, according to the Vancouver Province, the Canucks are expected meet with goalie Roberto Luongo in Florida, presumably in the near future.
Luongo remains a member of the organization, despite Gillis' attempts to trade him -- instead, he dealt Cory Schneider to the New Jersey Devils on June 30.
Luongo was hoping to be dealt and start a new chapter of his career with a new team. He's yet to speak publicly, other than to illustrate his shock by Vancouver's decision to keep him.
