Rumour: Tyson Barrie to Vancouver heating up

Mike Armenti   ·   23 février 2020
Less than 24-hours after the Leafs' infamous loss to a 42-year-old zamboni driver/EBUG, news is coming out of Vancouver that talks have intensified between the Maple Leafs and Canucks and these talks are believed to be surrounding Leafs defenseman and BC native Tyson Barrie.

It's hard to blame Leafs GM Kyle Dubas for feeling that a culture change is needed following the embarrassing loss at home to the Carolina Hurricanes and EBUG David Ayers.

If rumours prove true, it's likely that the Leafs are looking to acquire pieces that they can flip to another team for defensive help, as has been previously speculated.



The Vancouver Sun's Patrick Johnston may have been the first to report on this story, but just moments after Johnston broke the news on Barrie, Sportsnet's Satiar Shah confirmed the news, identifying that not only have there been talks between the two sides, but that those talks have intensified.

We will continue to monitor this story and will provide an update as soon as one becomes available.
