With the Vancouver Canucks making a lot of players available to all GM's in the league it won't come with surprise if they are active come the trade deadline. They already shipped out one of the biggest player's who wanted out of Vancouver in being Bo Horvat, and there are rumours that another Canuck wants out of there.

The Canucks came into this season thinking they would be more of a competitive team, but they haven't lived up to those standards being 27th in league right now, it doesn't come as much of a surprise that other players would want out.

Close sources to the Vancouver Canucks believe that Thatcher Demko doesn't want to play in Vancouver anymore per Farhan Lalji.




Demko, just last year was labeled as not available to any team no matter what, but after suffering two injuries Demko hasn't played to the potential he once was playing. Putting up a record of 3-10-2 with a .882 SV% just before he got put on Injury Reserved. He is currently signed on a fairly team friendly deal which shouldn't be hard for Allvin to move him for some prospects or picks which could benefit them In the years coming.

We also heard Elliot Friedman made a report on this stating that he might be on the block come the deadline.
WOULD DEMKO BENEFIT FROM A CHANGE OF SCENERY?
