NHL Rumors: Canucks Captain Available for Trade

According to Elliotte Friedman, the Vancouver Canucks have a few untouchables, but captain Bo Horvat is not among them.

Friedman also reported that the Canucks are ready to make changes to their roster if they do not improve from their truly terrible start to the season. Although they won their last two games, they also lost their first seven - putting them in a very bad position to start the year. Therefore, we will see them be sellers if they cannot change things, and Horvat his clear rental candidate given his pending UFA status. 

There will be plenty of interest in Horvat this season from here. We will have to wait and see if the Canucks can agree to an extension with their captain, but clearly, they are also open to the prospect of moving him given Friedman's report. In nine games this season, Horvat has six goals and two assists.
