Canucks Rumors: Conor Garland Linked to 2 New Teams

Vancouver Canucks forward Conor Garland is one of the most-talked-about names in the rumor mill. It has been reported that the Nashville Predators, Winnipeg Jets, and Columbus Blue Jackets are all expressing interest in him. Yet, according to David Pagnotta, the Washington Capitals and Carolina Hurricanes are also among the teams interested in the winger. 

The Canucks are looking to part ways with Garland and are seeking both a defenseman and cap relief in a potential swap. The Hurricanes certainly have an array of defensemen who could interest Vancouver, while the Capitals have decent depth themselves. Thus, they also could both make sense as trading partners. 

Garland would be a nice addition to either club's middle six if signed, as he is an effective point-producer who plays a gritty game. 

We will now need to wait and see if Garland ends up heading to DC or Raleigh from here.
