Likely trade interest in Brandon Prust

Canucks have plenty of trade bait

If James Reimer will really get the Leafs a first-round pick at the deadline, as some suggest, what would Miller be worth? Again, the mind wanders.

McKenzie on Lucic, Kings and Canucks

On if Lucic would want to go to Vancouver, given the stage at which the Canucks are now:

“It’s hard to say. That’s the old deciding… at what cost do you want to play in your hometown. And again, where does he fit for Vancouver. They’d have to see how it works for them. But because he’s a hometown guy, who in the past has sort of wondered aloud what it would be like to play in his hometown, you at least throw it on the table as a consideration. I mean, hey listen – you’re an unrestricted free agent. If you get to that, the world is your oyster. You get to go anywhere you want, who wants you.

Canucks could look to move Dan Hamhuis, Brandon Prust, Yannick Weber and Radim Vrbata

With Vancouver trending towards a youth movement, and various veteran players rumored to be available, another long-time Canucks’ future with the team is in limbo.

Could the Jackets look to add Higgins?

The Canucks placed Chris Higgins on waivers last Tuesday. A day later, the former Yale forward cleared, with nobody interested in assuming the $2.5 million he’s due annually through 2017. Higgins is only 32 years old. The left wing scored 12 goals and 24 assists in 77 games for Vancouver last season. But Higgins is the odd man out as general manager Jim Benning tries to make his aging roster younger.

Will the Canucks move Vrbata

The Canucks probably haven’t done enough this year to get the most out of Vrbata. And if he’s not going to play with the Sedins, I’m not sure there should be much debate about his future in Van.

However, I can see how the Canucks would have pause with the trade deadline approaching. Scoring goals is so difficult for this group, do they really want to trade their second-leading goal scorer?

Benning: “Really High” Asking Prices For Drouin, Johansen

Vancouver Canucks GM Jim Benning was on Vancouver’s TSN 1040 on Tuesday morning.

“I’ve talked to both general managers about both players. The prices for both players are really high. From our perspective, maybe we don’t have the prospect depth at certain positions that they’re looking to fill to make those types of trades.”

Could the Stars target Ericksson or Edler?

If Boston is open to it and hasn’t re-signed Loui Eriksson, I think he would be a player that would be a good fit as a rental. (although making that deal after the Seguin trade might be tough to pull off). If San Jose or Vancouver is struggling, I’d inquire about Brent Burns or Alex Edler and put up some of the young guns as bait. That’s just barstool talk, but now I can say that I said it first if it ever happens.
