NHL Trade Rumor: Canucks' Eriksson wants out of Vancouver

According to Loui Eriksson's agent, J.P Barry, he and the Vancouver Canucks are working on finding Eriksson a new home. Eriksson and the Canucks aren't exactly the pair, things haven't worked out for both parties.

Barry appeared on Sportsnet 650 and stated that he and Vancouver GM Jim Benning have been in contact constantly over the off-season and are working together on finding his client a new home.
I have been talking with Jim Benning 2-3 times a week for a lot of hockey reasons, it might be better for Loui to play somewhere else, Barry stated.
Last month, Eriksson called out Vancouver head coach Travis Green for 'not giving him a chance'. It has been mentioned that the Edmonton Oilers have been interested in a bad-contract-for-bad-contract deal. Oilers' Lucic has been linked to Vancouver, but the Oilers would have to add a sweetener. Multiple names have came up as sweeteners, mostly prospects, but one name that's been brought up by the Edmonton Journal is Jesse Puljujarvi.

Could we see Lucic along with Puljujarvi wearing the Canucks uniform and Eriksson going the other way?
