J.T. Miller’s representative
Rick Dhaliwal: Brian Bartlett, the representatives for Vancouver Canucks forward J.T. Miller: “We have not had any conversations with the Canucks about anything involving trades. J.T is focused on righting the ship there.”
Boeser on the block?
Rick Dhaliwal: Ben Hankinson, the representatives for Vancouver Canucks forward Brock Boeser: “I do not believe Brock will be traded but he knows it could happen. It is apart of the business. Brock does have faith in the Canucks team and his teammates to get through this.”
Rob Simpson of Vancouver Hockey Now: Vancouver Canucks forward Brock Boeser has actually had his name in trade speculation considering that the offseason however things have actually warmed up the previous couple of days. He’s struggled this season and has actually seen his ice-time decreased.
Canucks GM Jim Benning has just recently stated that he will check out all things in order to turn their season around. ‘Multiple NHL management sources’ have actually suggested that Boeser might be at the top of the list.
Forward Elias Pettersson wouldn’t more than happy if the Canucks moved Boeser. Moving a slumping Boeser with a $5.875 million cap hit and $7.5 million income for the pending RFA might not be simple. Maybe they might get a veteran defenseman or a right-handed center for Boeser. There will be interest in Boeser.
Tense times in Vancouver
Donnie & Dhali: Rick Dhaliwal on the Canucks: “Teams are calling about Vancouver players, no surprise the vultures are out..”
Harman Dayal: “I’m not sure it makes sense to allow #Canucks management to explore the idea of potentially trading a core piece right now. One trade isn’t going to save the season and I’d be especially wary when you have a GM that might sense his time is running out to right the ship”
Rick Dhaliwal: Elliotte Friedman on CHEK TELEVISION with Donnie and Dhali: “All options are on the table in VAN. Feeling is something is going to happen, is that a trade or firing?”
TSN: Darren Dreger when asked what he’s hearing out of Vancouver.
“Well, more from a mad fan base that there’s a strong hunger for modification, be it alter in management, modification in training, simply some kind of modification, that’s what we continue to hear.
General supervisor Jim Benning is protecting himself far from the media, from the sound outside, so he’s dedicated to making his club much better. The training personnel, their dedication is to attempt and assist this group through a genuine hard start to the routine season.
Meanwhile, you’ve got the representatives who are now fielding the calls amidst all the speculation, attempting to different reality from fiction. So, honestly, it’s simply another day of chaos in the season that is for the Vancouver Canucks.”
