Important day for Tyler Myers: Trade watch has now begun

Patrik Allvin and the Canucks were linked to an unimaginable number of trades throughout the off-season; one name heavily involved was Tyler Myers. One thing that presumably kept these talks from materializing was the bonus he was due prior to the beginning of the 2023 training camp.

The way Myers' contract was constructed on the day he signed implied that his final contract year would award him a $5M signing bonus and only $1M in salary. It was confirmed that this bonus was due to be paid on September 1st, which now makes Myers one of the top trade baits entering the training camp season.


Myers carries a $6M cap hit, and if the Canucks were to retain %50 of his cap hit, Myers could turn into a positive since his contract is set to end at the conclusion of the campaign.


Myers joined the Canucks in 2019 via free agency, the tall defenseman, then signed a $30M contract for five years. In Vancouver, he participated in 283 games and tallied 77 points.

Over the summer, many insiders have pointed out that they believed the only thing preventing a Myers trade was his hefty bonus. Now that it's out of the way, the countdown begins.
