Today, the Canucks held their season-end media availability. The first group going on the stage featured, Elias Pettersson, Filip Hronek, J.T. Miller, and Brock Boeser. Obviously, the latter did have a lot of questions to answer after an emotional season.

Everyone is well aware of everything that BB6 had to go through, the Canucks' winger had a rough patch and it showed in his games. His agent was given permission to talk to other clubs earlier in the season, in order to facilitate trade and in the end, it didn't occur.

The Canucks ended up making a major change in their bench bosses and the team's direction went from north to south, but so did Brock Boeser. He picked it up quite nicely, and while he was playing alongside Miller he had quite the success. Not only did the quality of his game improve a bunch, it also appears that he had a change of heart as the season went on.

Boeser gave quite the quote in the media availability and it may give us a clearer idea of what Allvin and Rutherford intend to do with the winger:


''I don't want to be traded. I love it here. It was a tough year personally, but it's kind of a blessing in disguise that I didn't get traded.''


Boeser was the Canucks 1st Round Selection back in 2015 and has been considered a big part of this franchise ever since. Even though he had a ''down-season'' he was only one point away from tying his career-high total in points (56). Boeser was much criticized for the fact that, for the first time in his young career, through a full season, he did not reach the 20 goals plateau.

Now that Boeser has appeared to have had a change of heart, along with the fact that Tocchet is really confident that with a good summer of training, he can make him the player is meant to be, should the Canucks consider keeping him around? Instead of trading him for nothing?

If Boeser had played a full season at the pace he had under Tocchet, the Canucks would've had 5 70-points or more producer (Pettersson, Miller, Hughes, Kuzmenko and Boeser), when is the last time the Canucks had that?
