It is no secret that the New York Rangers want to make a J.T. Miller trade for a Stanley Cup run. The problem is NHL Rumors have other teams with serious interest in a Miller trade like the Minnesota Wild and Boston Bruins.
Larry Brooks of the New York Post reports now is the time for the Vancouver Canucks to trade Miller and get the most value. Miller’s trade value will diminish over the offseason when an acquiring team would get him for one playoff run rather than two.
Brooks went on to say, it will likely cost the Rangers a 2022 first-rounder, Nils Lundkvist and another prospect or a mid-round draft pick. But the defenceman the Canucks will likely want in return for a Miller trade is Braden Schneider.
Miller is a point-per-game player in Vancouver and his contract — one more year at a $5.25 million cap hit — is palatable for the Rangers to take on.
