REPORT: Devils emerging as a landing spot for Boeser and the Canucks could score big

Published January 31, 2023 at 11:56

The Vancouver Canucks have started their fire sale last night when they move their star centerman Bo Horvat. The trade market has been slow this year, now with a big move to fire it up, expect other pieces to be moved moving forward.

The Canucks still have big guns in their arsenal, at this point. Conor Garland, Brock Boeser, Tyler Myers, Luke Schenn are all names that have been rumoured to be on the market. The Canucks are trying to ditch salary for the future and they may have a potential trade partner in the Devils, especially since they've shown interest in Brock Boeser.

A trend has been going around on social media's suggesting that the Devils has given up on one of their top prospects Alexander Holtz. After he completely dominated the AHL level, he hasn't been able to crack the offensively stacked Devils after he'd been given multiple opportunities.

They're suggesting a trade that would definitely change the face of the Canucks.

Brock Boeser
30% salary retention ($1.995M AAV until 2025)


Alexander Holtz

Holtz registered 6 points in 27 NHL outings, though through the 55 games he's played he managed 55 points. The, now 21-year-old, was selected 7th total in the 2020 Draft.

It's no secret that Brock Boeser has asked for a change of scenery, the forward has been a mere shadow of himself since his father passed. Through 41 games, he still managed 30 points. The 6 seasons veteran has proven that he can find the back of net on a constant basis, could he be a match in a strong Devils' group?
