NHL Rumors: Capitals Linked To Canucks Star

According to Elliotte Friedman, the Washington Capitals are expressing interest in Vancouver Canucks star J.T. Miller.

It isn't surprising to hear that the Capitals want to add a high-impact player like Miller. It was recently announced that Nicklas Backstrom is set to have hip surgery and will be out because of it. Thus, there is a big hole at center on their roster now, and Miller would be a great option to fill it. 

The Canucks have made it known that they are listening to offers for Miller. His value is at its highest, and he is entering the final year of his contract. In 80 games this past season, the 29-year-old scored 32 goals and recorded an impressive 99 points.
