Adnan Virk: “Well the Canucks, they opened the floodgate to the (Bo) Horvat trade last week, where do go from here now with them?
David Pagnotta: “Well everybody wants to see who they’re potentially going to move out next, and you had some guys on that board with Luke Schenn and of course Brock Boeser.
There is belief, especially over the weekend, I was told trade talks have picked up with respect to Brock Boeser and some of the teams that are interested in him. He’s got two more years left on his contract, $6.65 million cap hit. So there is term there.
But the dollars based on his performance not only this season but last as well, have been somewhat concerning to a few teams. Which could result in either the Vancouver Canucks retaining money on Boeser’s contract or they’re going to have to take a body back as part of that deal.
Everyone, again, is trying to see who could be one of the next guys that is going to leave. But things have definitely picked on up Boeser’s front, and my understanding is they would prefer, Vancouver would, to get something done well ahead of the trade deadline. We’ve got 25 more days to figure that out.
