Has Kesler asked for a trade out of Vancouver?

 

Could the Canucks trade Kesler?

This assumes the Canucks, despite speculative reports, aren’t planning to trade Kesler.

A trade involving Kesler, widely coveted for his two-way game the way Canuck Trevor Linden was a generation ago, would cause a seismic shift in an organization whose core group of players has gone largely unchanged for years even as the team slips a little farther each season from its Stanley Cup final peak of 2011.

Canucks want ‘a player to help Kesler,’ says Gillis

Just over a week away from the NHL trade deadline, Vancouver GM Mike Gillis knows what he needs to help his struggling team.

Problem is, getting that help will cost him.

Gallagher: There’s hope for the Canucks, but it only comes via trade

Consider for a moment if this team could, for argument’s sake, get into the running for a player like Thomas Vanek. Re: a winger who could score and would have a chance of playing well with the twins in their years to come in this uniform.

Are the Canucks getting ready to trade Edler?

Vancouver gets another defenceman in the Raphael Diaz for Dale Weise trade but isn’t that an overabundance? Does this lead us to believe the Canucks will deal a defenceman at some point?

McKenzie: Everybody assumes that this is the precursor to moving one of their veteran defencemen; getting Alex Edler to waive his no-trade clause or what have you.
