On Tuesday’s edition of Insider Trading on TSN, Darren Dreger reported on the current state of the Vancouver Canucks.
Here’s what Dreger had to say:
Well, we know the temperature is rising. We know that Vancouver Canucks fans continue to scream for answers, but the reality is, it’s not that simple.
The Vancouver Canucks still believe that it is too early to do anything significant or anything that is overly drastic. But the Canucks also know, guys, that they are dangerously close to having to put everything on the table.
So what does that mean, and what does that look like? Well, let’s start with a hefty renovation. That means moving out players, maybe key players, collecting draft picks, knowing that there is a very good draft looming in 2023. You’ve got the possibility of trying to make, maybe, a shorter-term fix and add a trade. But there’s certainly no guarantee that that player, the right player, is going to be available in a timely enough fashion.
And then perhaps most appealing to Canucks fans because of how sour they are is the firing of the coach. Again, not quite there, but it’s headed in one of those three directions. Tough spot for Bruce Boudreau and the Canucks management.
Dreger’s report comes as no surprise as those in the fanbase are growing increasingly restless and are looking for answers as to where the organization will go from here as their team continues to struggle to pick up just a single win.
