Burrows, Miller and Hansen up for trade
Ben Kuzma of the Vancouver Province believes the Canucks have three marketable assests ahead of the trade deadline. Those players are; forwards Alex Burrows and Jannick Hansen, and goaltender Ryan Miller. Burrows and Miller are both playing on expiring contracts, while Hansen is signed through next season at a cap hit of $2.5 million.
The Canucks may be forced to move Hansen in order to avoid leaving him unprotected in the Las Vegas expansion draft. Linden admitted to TSN 1040 earlier this month that if his roster remained in its current state, one of , Sven Baerstchi and Hansen would likely be left available for the Golden Knights.
