Michie: “If the Vancouver Canucks are going to commerce Bo Horvat, I’d picture the worth can be excessive, perhaps not as a lot as Chychrun, or perhaps greater than Chychrun

Where do issues stand with Bo Horvat and the Vancouver Canucks?”

Seravalli: “Well it’s simply been actually quiet on that entrance and I feel this goes again to earlier than coaching camp. Last I checked in with the Vancouver Canucks and that scenario ongoing with Bo Horvat, that was actually the final time that they entered into any important talks a couple of new contract for Bo Horvat.

It’s not one thing that at this level along with his ridiculously scorching begin to the season, objectives in video games, that they’re actually even trying in the intervening time that it’d make extra sense provided that they had been in an analogous scenario with J.T. Miller final 12 months. Although, not a rental, they didn’t capitalize on the chance that was on the market to maneuver on from a participant that was experiencing a rare season.

And on this case with Bo Horvat, I feel issues have form of soured. There’s been fixed drama that’s existed round this workforce actually since they obtained collectively at coaching camp. Everyone’s questioning, will there be a training change? Will there not be?

And at this level, it looks like provided that Miller is signed long-term, and so many different guys on their roster aren’t almost as moveable and might current almost as a lot worth as Horvat, that they’ve most likely boxed themselves right into a spot the place they don’t have any alternative however to take a look at a commerce for Bo Horvat.

I feel there was some discuss final week concerning the potential of that transferring ahead, and as Jim Rutherford, president of their hockey ops alluded to not too long ago on Sportsnet 650 in Vancouver, and the higher Bo Horvat performs, the extra of a return they’re going to get. And with every purpose that goes in, I feel it simply places the Canucks in a bit bit of higher spot when it comes to that bundle.”
