Vancouver Canucks Rumors: 2 Potential Landing Spots for Conor Garland

Vancouver Canucks winger Conor Garland’s name is starting to pick up steam in the rumor mill again. The Canucks are in a position where they may need to move out salary before the start of the year, so it is understandable that Garland is a trade candidate again. Let’s discuss two clubs that could consider adding him now.

Chicago Blackhawks: The Chicago Blackhawks have made plenty of additions this offseason to give Connor Bedard support. However, it is apparent that they could use another forward for their top six, and Garland would be a very good option for them. He would see first-line minutes and plenty of power-play time if acquired. 

Washington Capitals: The Washington Capitals are hoping to add another winger to their top six before the start of the season. As a result, it would make sense for them to take a flier on Garland. He would make their roster look deeper on paper and could thrive playing in DC.
