On today’s episode of Canucks Conversation, David Quadrelli and Chris Faber talked about all the latest surrounding the Vancouver Canucks.
The guys talked about why fans shouldn’t get caught up in the semantics of the term retool over rebuild, and dissected president of hockey operations Jim Rutherford’s quotes about tanking during his press conference on Monday.
They also talked about Andrei Kuzmenko and the Canucks’ positive first meeting regarding a contract extension for the Russian winger, and gave their reasoning as to why they both believe the team needs to trade Kuzmenko at the March 3rd deadline if the price is right.
Currently, the 26-year-old has tallied 17 goals and 21 assists through 42 games played. Plenty of teams are interested in acquiring Kuzmenko from the Canucks, but to this point, the Canucks have reportedly made it clear to teams that they intend on getting an extension done and aren’t preparing to let him go at this point in time.
