GM is 'open for business' 7 players on the trading block.

It sounds like one general manager has made his decision, and will be a big time seller at the deadline with reportedly no less than 7 players available on the trading block.

According to a report from TSN hockey insider Bob McKenzie Vancouver Canucks general manager Jim Benning has let other teams around the National Hockey League know that they are "open for business," and have put more than just rental players on the trading block, including some of their restricted free agents on the trade market as well.

According to McKenzie all of the following players are available:

Unrestricted free agents:

Matt Bartkowski - Defense

Adam Cracknell - Right wing

Chris Higgins - Left wing

Brandon Prust - Left wing

Yannick Weber - Defense

As stated earlier the Canucks have also made some of their restricted free agents available:

Ronald Kenins - Left wing

Linden Vey - Right wing

Obviously this is a rather large list of players for a GM to make avaialble and they may not be the only names available, there were multiple rumors that forward Radim Vrbata could be available although he just recently has been sidelined with an injury and perhaps that may be the reason his name does not appear on this list.
