According to the Province, the Canucks need to add a physical, offensive-minded winger, but their options are tremendously limited.
Young winger Nicklas Jensen could make a case for a roster spot in September, but the paper suggests the club needs more in order to balance the scoring.
With around $5 million in available salary cap space, and part of that expected to be use to re-sign restricted free agent defenseman Chris Tanev, Canucks GM Mike Gillis will have to be creative in how he obtains extra fire-power.
The Canucks could look to re-sign unrestricted free agent Mason Raymond, but the Province claims the team hasn't shown any interest.
Gillis had also been shopping Raymond during the regular-season, prior to the NHL trade deadline.
