Miller’s impact on Bo Horvat
Sportsnet: Elliotte Friedman on the Tim & Friends reveal on how J.T. Miller‘s agreement extension with the Vancouver Canucks might impact a Bo Horvat extension.
“One thing I think is, if you have great gamers and you wish to keep them, you discover a method to keep them. So, I constantly choose that up until I’m informed otherwise.
I still believe the Canucks wish to keep Horvat. As far as I understand, Horvat wishes to remain in Vancouver. I understand there was a great deal of optimism previously as the season ended that there was something to get done. Obviously, they aren’t there yet. As we talk today, I have no factor to stress if I’m the Canucks.
But, I believe the something is, that we’re headed into a world that it appears like the cap might increase in 2 years. So I believe what the groups are attempting to do is browse that. I believe you understand Ailish, what the marketplace is for Horvat, it’s huge, however at the end of the day, I constantly think if the group and a gamer wish to make it work, there are methods to make it work.”
