Canucks Testing Trade Market on Defenseman Tyler Myers

The Vancouver Canucks are reportedly testing the trade market on defenseman Tyler Myers. He has two seasons left on his deal.

As per David Pagnotta of The Fourth Period, the Vancouver Canucks are evaluating the trade market on several players including defenseman Tyler Myers leading up to the March 21 NHL trade deadline. The Canucks already have names like J.T. Miller, Conor Garland, and Brock Boeser out there in trade discussions, but Myers’ name is a new one to add to the list.

Noting that it’s because the Canucks are interested in testing the waters on almost everyone in a quest to find the best way to reshape the roster and save on salary cap space moving forward, Pagnotta said during his appearance on NHL Tonight on NHL Network: “They’re exploring the market on Tyler Myers. They want to wait a couple of weeks to see how the team performs and exactly what the marketplace has to bear for some of their players, including Tyler Myers.”

Patrik Allvin and (President, Hockey Operations) Jim Rutherford want to put their mark on this club, Pagnotta notes and while he doesn’t name which teams have expressed interest in the defenseman, it is believed there is a market out there for him. That said, with two seasons remaining on a contract that pays him $6 million per year, and with a 10-team no-trade clause worked into his contract, the options will be a bit more limited.

What Is Myers Worth?

Myers is having a decent season with 11 assists and 48 penalty minutes. He has no goals on the year but is eating up a ton of minutes for the Canucks. He’s never been a huge offensive producer but he plays a big physical game that would be helpful for teams in the playoffs. Whether or not a club is willing to give up the kind of return the Canucks might be seeking is unclear.
