The Vancouver Canucks are interested in signing free agent forward Ryan O'Reilly to fill their 2nd line center spot.

With Free Agent Frenzy only days away, NHL rumors are picking up on where players could end up? Ryan O’Reilly is one player that is getting a lot of attention.

The Toronto Maple Leafs would love to re-sign Ryan O’Reilly to a long-term deal, but it is looking like any future free salary they will have will go to re-signing Auston Matthews and William Nylander.

Will the Canucks sign Ryan O’Reilly on July 1?

Elliotte Friedman was on his 32 Thoughts Podcast and stated that the Vancouver Canucks have serious interest in signing Ryan O’Reilly as they are seeking another center.

The Canucks have 17 of 23 roster spots filled, so if they were to sign Ryan O’Reilly when NHL free agent frenzy hits, they will have to shed some salary.

What are Canucks fans saying about a Ryan O’Reilly contract signing?

Nooooo! I do not want to sign O’Reilly who is past his prime. Stupid move by the Canucks if they decide to do this.

The Canucks have history of signing players to bad contracts. Signing Ryan O’Reilly would not surprise me at all.

What did he do for the Maple Leafs in the playoffs? Nothing! Please do not sign him or I might become a Leaf fan!
