The clock is ticking before we hit tomorrow's trade deadline and while many names are still in the rumors, nothing concrete has appeared.

Canucks' management made a really surprising acquisition yesterday when they traded a 1st and a 2nd Round Selection to acquire Filip Hronek. Weeks only, after they stated that draft picks were essential in their «retool».

Brock Boeser and J.T. Miller have been linked to numerous potential trades and now we've just been made aware of the reason nothing had yet to materialize but the piece that the Canucks were looking for. Since they have traded Bo Horvat, there's been a significant hole down the middle in Vancouver since Elias Pettersson is the only natural centerman to manage top6 responsibilities.

Frank Seravalli mentioned on Halford and Brough that the Canucks were open to moving their 99-point player if they can get their hand on a 25 or less capable centerman. Though he also stated that he believed it was very unlikely to happen before the deadline. The Canucks window will be thin since his NMC will kick in on July 1st and Miller will then have full control over his next destination.



With the way the Canucks have been buying, everything points to them being buyers of low-cost 25 years old and less forward. It's quite clear that the Canucks need a centerman to play behind Elias Pettersson because even though he's an extremely well-conditioned athlete, it's physically unthinkable to have him average 24 minutes a game.
