Vancouver Canucks to Have a Fire Sale: Kesler, Edler, Bieksa "Must Go"

The Vancouver Canucks plan to have a fire sale at the draft, according to Sportsnet’s Josh Rimer.

He reports Canucks Ryan Kesler, Alexander Edler and Kevin Bieksa “must go.”

The Canucks management might want a fire sale, but whether this happens or not is anybody’s guess.

It has been widely reported Kesler has requested a trade, but according to Bieksa on CBC’s After Hours, Kesler “never requested a trade.” There were reports Canucks owner Francesco Aquilini blocked a deal that would send Kesler to the Pittsburgh Penguins for a package including Brandon Sutter.

There also another rumoured deal to send Edler to the Boston Bruins, but that deal fell through after the Canucks failed to trade Kesler. Edler, who has a no-trade clause, may have refused to waive it as well.

Bieksa has said he doesn’t want to be traded saying he’ll be with the Canucks “until they throw me out of here.” He has a no-trade clause.
