Canucks Rumors: New Team Enters Bo Horvat Sweepstakes

Bo Horvat is one of the top rental candidates heading into this year's deadline, a trade from the Vancouver Canucks seems inevitable. Several contenders have been linked to the star center because of it, and a new team has entered the picture. According to The Fourth Period, the Dallas Stars are now expressing interest in him.

Horvat would certainly be a major addition to the Stars' lineup, as he would give their top six another star center to work with. It is clear that this is an area that Dallas needs help with if they want to compete with the top teams in the Western Conference, so it makes all the sense in the world that Horvat has become one of their primary trade targets.

Alas, it will be intriguing to see if Dallas now ends up being the lucky team to win the Horvat sweepstakes from here.
