MAJOR | Insider reveals that a mitigated Canucks' forward is drawing interest and it would fix a big mistake

The Canucks announced earlier that they'd be taking a whole new direction and started their «major surgery»

When Jim Rutherford and Patrik Allvin took over the team's management they didn't expect to have to conduct such change and they awarded a soon-to-be 30-year-old J.T. Miller $56M over the next 7 years. A deal that looked great at the time, but with the new direction they're taking, will not look so good in the foreseeable future.

Miller has picked his game up lately and has demonstrated great things since Rick Tocchet took over and Elliotte Friedman made a major revelation on the Canucks' forward. From the information he's gathered, not only has Miller been a talked subject within different organizations, but also added that teams had begun calling on him.




The Canucks are not aiming to be a competitive team for at least the next two to three years and Miller has a no-movement clause kicking in on July 1st. If the Canucks were given the opportunity to free up that kind of money, it would definitely go a long way into this rebuild and it would also leave the Canucks with more room to address the true leader of this team, Elias Pettersson.

Pettersson will need a new deal comes July 1st 2024 and with the way he's improved over the last two years, there truly aren't any limitations to the raise he could command.

If the Canucks get the opportunity to move their hot-headed forward J.T. Miller and build a new chapter in the franchise's history, should they do it?
