Although most of the noise up to this point regarding Vancouver Canucks trade chatter has revolved around J.T. Miller, Brock Boeser’s name has been brought up at various points in the past, and he’s being talked about once again.
In his latest Trade Targets piece, Frank Seravalli of Daily Faceoff added Boeser to his list of 25 names in play leading up to the March 21st trade deadline.
Here’s what Seravalli wrote:
Scoop: Trade chatter surrounding Boeser has grown louder in the last number of days as the Canucks’ newly assembled regime settles in ahead of the deadline. With 10 goals in 21 games, no Canuck has benefitted more than Boeser from Bruce Boudreau being behind the bench in Vancouver. Keep in mind: Jim Rutherford has repeatedly stressed that creating salary cap flexibility is key. There are other roster players that can achieve space and freedom, but there is a sense the Canucks are not sold Boeser’s play will be commensurate with the large qualifying offer due to him this summer, which makes him a prime candidate to move. It’s entirely possible that J.T. Miller, who is much more of a driver than Boeser, remains in Vancouver and Boeser is on his way to a new team. Could New Jersey be a fit for Boeser?
Boeser is on the last year of his contract and is due for a $7.5 million qualifying offer on his next contract.
