Canucks Rumors: 2 Players Being Discussed in Trade Talks

The Vancouver Canucks are a team to watch as the trade market begins to heat up. Conversations have been taken place around the league with the Canucks hearing from other teams on a regular basis. Turns out they have been discussing two names much more than others.

Forward Brock Boeser and defenseman Oliver Ekman-Larsson have been discussed in numerous trades so far this season. Boeser is appealing to many teams as the 25-year-old winger still has untapped potential. He's shown in the past he can score with the best of them, with four 20-goal seasons already under his belt. So far this season, Boeser has recorded no goals and eight assists in 10 games. Teams are likely trying to pry him away from the team as hopes are they can buy low as the struggles to score continue. Look for the Montreal Canadiens, New York Rangers, Pittsburgh Penguins, and Detroit Red Wings to all have serious interest as trade talks continue.

Ekman-Larsson on the other hand, apparently won't waive his no-trade clause and has been approached by the team more than once. Talk about an awkward situation brewing.... The mobile defenseman has a big ticket at $7.2 million cap hit and signed through the 2026-27 season. The 31-year-old has a full no-movement clause and has recorded six points in 16 games so far this season. The Boston Bruins have been linked to OEL for several seasons and the St Louis Blues are also a team to watch here.
