Canucks-Leafs talks intensify but not an easy deal to make
David Pagnotta: Have been told that the Vancouver Canucks are really engaged in the trade market for a defenseman.
Trade talks with the Toronto Maple Leafs for Tyson Barrie were ongoing earlier today.
The Canucks don’t have either their first or second-round picks in this year’s draft. That could affect their pursuit of Barrie or other defensemen.
Satiar Shah: Also hearing earlier today that Barrie trade talks to the Canucks had intensified.
- Satiar Shah: “Can’t but doesn’t mean it’s imminent. There’s been more talks but it’s not an easy deal to pull off for Van & Toronto, there are more moving parts. Like Leafs getting a legit top 4 guy. They like Stecher but not sure if they see him as a big minute player right away. So we’ll see”
Saad on the trade deadline
Ben Pope: Chicago Blackhawks forward Brandon Saad on the trade deadline: “You’re a hockey player, so you’re going to play hard for whoever you’re with and take it as it comes. The other were in the summertime, so I’ve never dealt with it at the deadline, so that’s always a new experience. But hopefully I’m here in Chicago.”
