The latest Vancouver Canucks rumors feature the team looking to package defenseman Tyler Myers for a scoring winger.

Online speculation has the team looking to package Vancouver Canucks defenseman Tyler Myers and his $6 million salary cap hit for a top-six winger.

Myers has been in the NHL trade rumors mill all offseason, but now that his $5 million signing bonus has been paid out, the Canucks are in no rush to trade him, but will move him if the right forward becomes available.

Will the Vancouver Canucks make a trade for a top-six forward?

It is uncertain if the Vancouver Canucks will have a successful year, but they hope to be a playoff team this season, which could affect Elias Pettersson’s future with the team.

They have draft picks available, including a 1st round pick, and they might be open to offering prospects like Jonathan Lekkerimaki or Arturs Silovs in a trade package that includes Myers to land a forward.

What forwards could the Vancouver Canucks target?

Philadelphia Flyers forward Scott Laughton has been mentioned in trade rumors and could be had for the right price. He would slot in nicely in the Canucks top six.

Victor Olofsson, who scored 28 goals with the Buffalo Sabres last season, is reportedly available for trade.

What are Canucks fans saying about a trade for a winger?

Habs Gallagher would be awesome. He has grit and heart which this team needs but his salary sucks!

I think Vancouver should focus on defense and not add another forward.

Canucks needs to upgrade their 2nd line winger position. Though, I take a pass on Olofsson.
