nameci Posted September 6, 2022 Share Posted September 6, 2022 (edited) It is no secret that a number of teams, including the Canucks, are trying to bolster their RHD corps Fortunately, the Canucks have an abundance of quality forwards to offer in trade. While I liked the recent DeMelo proposal, it comes down the whether or not the other team is motivated to make the trade with us. There are two teams, however, who seem to have an abundance of RHD which they might well be interested in moving. There has been a fair amount of Damon Severson this trade talk and I think that the Devils might be willing to move on from his contract. With the John Marino trade, Severson is projected to be a third pairing defenceman who would be making almost 4.2 million for the upcoming season before becoming a UFA the following year. So the Devils might be quite interested in moving him. In return, I would begin the trade discussion by offering Hoglander+. If the Devils were more interested in acquiring Garland, the Canucks could counter with Severson and a prospect or pick. The Carolina Hurricanes also have a surplus of RHD and might well be receptive to a Conor Garland for Brett Pesce proposal from the Canucks. Pesce is a little older than Garland, but is a solid, defence-first, defenceman who would look awfully good playing beside Quinn Hughes.
