What are Canucks saying about a potential Brock Boeser trade?
Boeser needs a change of scenery, guy is too comfortable in Vancouver and needs a fresh start.
You have to figure Brock will have a big season next year. Cap space is an issue but I hope we can keep him.
Please find a way to get rid of him- way to many wingers in the system, he hasnt back checked this decade, slower every season most likely due to his back.
