The Vancouver Canucks are looking to shed salary as they currently sit $4,267,917 over the salary cap and will have to find a way to be cap compliant before the season starts.
NHL trade rumors have swirled around that the Vancouver Canucks could trade Tyler Myers after September 1 when his $5 million signing bonus is paid out. But most teams are capped out and will not be able to take on his $6 million salary cap hit.
The Columbus Blue Jackets could be a potential trade partner to help the Canucks lower their cap hit.
