The Vancouver Canucks season has not started well and the fan base is starting to get upset. The Canucks were a team thought to contend for a playoff spot but after a 5-9-2 start, they will have some work to do to get back into the playoff picture.
Darren Dreger was on TSN’s Insider Trading segment and reports GM Jim Benning did meet with owner Francesco Aquilini. I think all involved with the Vancouver Canucks organization, ownership, management, certainly coaching know that their play on the ice has been unacceptable.
Dreger went on to say, change isn’t coming, at least not quite yet. The belief is that ownership is willing to continue to be patient but the expectation is that the results on the ice have to change.
You have to believe if the Canucks do not turn things around in the next 10 days or so changes will be coming. The big question is, who does get traded from the Canucks? You have to think Elias Pettersson and Quinn Hughes are safe. Does Vancouver look at trading Bo Horvat or Brock Boeser to shake things up?
