Monster Trade Rumor Out of Vancouver

dan hamhuis vancouver canucks trade

The Vancouver Canucks want to trade either Dan Hamhuis or Kevin Bieksa. The Canucks desperately need to shed salary because they have $66 million invested in 17 players and only $4 million left to fill out the rest of their roster.

Bieksa and Hamhuis each have a year left on a contract with a cap hit of $4.6 million. Both defensemen have a no-trade clause. The Colorado Avalanche, Dallas Stars, Philadelphia Flyers and Edmonton Oilers are interested in acquiring Kevin Bieksa or Dan Hamhuis.

General manager Jim Benning is looking for a second round pick in return and could get more for Hamhuis. Benning said:

We’ve talked to lots of GMs to get a general feel for what’s going on in the marketplace and we’re going to try and recover a second-round pick if we can.

The Vancouver Canucks also want to trade either Jacob Markstrom or Eddie Lack.
