LOUI ERIKSSON HOPING TO BE TRADED BY THE CANUCKS

According to TSN insider Pierre LeBrun, Loui Eriksson’s agent JP Barry has the green light from the Vancouver Canucks to call other teams directly and try to find his client a new home.

This is certainly interesting as it is very rare for an agent to be contacting teams about his player who still has term left on his contract, however hearing that Eriksson wants out should not come as a surprise. There have been reported riffs between the 35-year-old forward and head coach Travis Green for some time, and his tenure with the team has certainly not gone how him or management planned the day they agreed on a six-year, $36 million contract.

While the Canucks would certainly like to move on from Eriksson, they may not be able to. The Gothenburg, Sweden native still has two more seasons left on his contract with an average annual value of $6 million, and has not played anywhere near that level since signing the deal. Through his first four seasons with the Canucks, he has failed to hit the 30-point mark, and had a horrible six goals and 13 points in 49 games this season.



Any trade involving him would likely have to include the Canucks retaining some of his salary, or sending some draft picks as compensation. Regardless, it should be an interesting story to follow throughout the offseason.
