Patrik Allvin's been busy so far this summer. Everything started when the team bought out the remainder of Oliver Ekman-Larsson's contract and then acquired veteran defensemen to fill the void.

He signed Carson Soucy, Ian Cole and Teddy Blueger, all experienced and poised players to help the team fight for a playoff spot. The thing is that the Canucks still have holes to fill in their line-up, and with Tanner Pearson's return, the Canucks' spending is expected to be exceeding the salary cap by a little over $4M.
A right-handed defenseman to slot behind Filip Hronek, a third-line centerman and cap space are all topping Allvin's wishlist. The subject was discussed earlier today on Sekeres and Price: an interesting chain of events came out of it.
"I know Myers' name has come up a little bit more in rumours in the last couple of days...I think this is going to be complicated for them going through training camp."

‘'Yes. Need a third-line centre, perhaps a Tyler Myers trade can secure one or open the cap space to go get one.''

At this point, it's become clear that it's not a matter of if but when Tyler Myers gets traded. For the team's sake, moving his salary once his bonus is all paid up would open up the money and the roster spot to add perhaps another centerman or a defenseman to pair up with Quinn Hughes.
