Sharks Rumors: Canucks Showing Trade Interest In Forward

The Vancouver Canucks have emerged as a team interested in acquiring San Jose Sharks forward Kevin Labanc, according to multiple reports.

The Canucks view Labanc as a valuable addition to their roster, with the potential to strengthen their offense and boost their playoff chances.

Labanc, known for his scoring prowess, has shown promise in previous seasons, consistently netting around 20 goals.

Rumors suggest that the Canucks have engaged in discussions with the Sharks regarding a potential trade involving Labanc.

The proposed deal reportedly revolves around sending Canucks defenseman Tyler Myers to San Jose in exchange for Labanc.

Both players have similar salaries, making the trade financially feasible for both teams. Additionally, such a move could provide the Canucks with some salary cap flexibility.

Myers holds a $6 million AAV, while Labanc has a $4.725 million AAV.

While the trade talks have been ongoing, there have been frustrations within the Canucks organization regarding the length of time it has taken to finalize the deal.

This delay has led to questions about why the trade has not been completed if it is a viable option.

It's worth noting that there have been ongoing discussions about the future of Tyler Myers with the Canucks, indicating their openness to exploring trade possibilities involving him. Photo Credit: Sergei Belski-USA TODAY Sports
