In the latest NHL rumors roundup, questions are starting to float around on what the Vancouver Canucks will do with Brock Boeser in 2022?
Iain MacIntyre of Sportsnet reports the Canucks core will have to change and the most vulnerable player to be traded is Brock Boeser.
MacIntyre went on to say, the $5.875-million salary on his bridge deal has been reasonable, the looming qualifying offer of $7.5-million for Boeser is not.
It is likely Boeser will be seek a $8-$8.5 million contract extension, which the Canucks just cannot afford under the current salary cap.
NHL trade rumors were circulated earlier in the season that the Canucks could look into trading Miller or Horvat and if that happens Vancouver might find the money to re-sign Boeser.
