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.
VAN has let other 29 teams know they are open for business on: Vey, Bartkowski, Kenins, Cracknell, Higgins, Prust and Weber.— Bob McKenzie (@TSNBobMcKenzie) February 24, 2016
