Believe it or not, we are less than a week until the March 21 trade deadline. For the Vancouver Canucks, it looks to be another interesting deadline day for them.
What makes things even more interesting is that ideally the Canucks would be sellers so they can focus on the future but they find themselves in the midst of a playoff race and at the time of this writing just sit only one point behind the Vegas Golden Knights for the final wild-card spot. The Canucks are also 7-2-1 in their last ten games and since Bruce Boudreau took over as the head coach on December 5, the Canucks have gone 22-9-5 and are eighth in the entire NHL since then.
What kind of deadline should we expect from the deadline? With the Canucks fighting for a playoff spot, there could be a few moves, a quiet deadline or maybe, just maybe, a trade that shocks Vancouver so much that people start falling off their chairs and dropping their phones simultaneously.
Over the past couple of months, plenty of trade rumours coming from various hockey insiders has been brought up. The trade rumours at times were like hearing an Ed Sheeran song. You like it first but everywhere you go, you just can’t escape him and hear him multiple times a day.
Various players have been mentioned in these rumours, so with the deadline in just a few days, let’s go over which of the Canucks brought up in rumours are likely to be traded. Patrik Allvin has got some decisions to make.
Disclaimer: This is just pure speculation from my own mind and I cannot predict the future like some mythical oracle. Knowing hockey, you will never know what could happen.
