The Vancouver Canucks’ J.T. Miller is one of the few coveted trade targets this offseason for teams looking to bolster their Stanley Cup chances before the 2023 NHL trade deadline.
Despite the immense interest in Miller, the Canucks probably aren’t going to trade their versatile forward unless they get an offer that’s too good to refuse.
J.T. Miller potential landing spots for 2022-23 season
New York Rangers
The New York Rangers have been tied to J.T. Miller since the Miller trade rumors started circulating months ago.
With the recent news that the Washington Capitals could be without Nicklas Backstrom for the entire 2022-23 NHL campaign, that free’s up $9.2 million in Capitals cap space.
The problem the Capitals have compared to the Rangers is they don’t have young blue chip players like New York has to offer in a trade.
Will J.T. Miller re-sign with the Vancouver Canucks?
J.T. Miller rumors suggest that if the Canucks and Miller can’t agree to a new contract before the season starts, no contract will be discussed as the season goes on.
If the Canucks are in playoff contention, Vancouver will likely use Miller as their own rental and wait until next summer and see if he re-signs with the team or tests the 2023 free agent market.
