MAJOR DEVELOPMENT | Brock Boeser is the next piece to be moved

Published February 1, 2023 at 1:54 PM

The Canucks have opened the trade market after they moved Bo Horvat earlier this week and now the market is heating up again.

Brock Boeser made headlines when the news got out that his agent had been authorized to speak to other team's representative in order to facilitate a trade.

Lots of teams showed interest in the streaky scoring winger. The tight salary cap made it almost impossible for teams' to make a move on him with his current $6.6M AAV going on until 2025.

It was indicated earlier that the Canucks did not wish to retain any salary, though a new information has surfaced on social media regarding the subject. Darren Dreger reported that the Canucks response to the possibility of retaining salary was the following:

"Make your best pitch and then we'll decide."

A trade proposal with the Devils showed Alexander Holtz coming the other way around for Boeser and a 30% salary retention. If the Canucks want to move Boeser and have a decent return, should they consider this path?

Should Rutherford and Allvin retain salary to move him? Or should they accept a lesser return but retain no salary?
