Looking at Brock Boeser's Market

Yesterday (Feb. 24), I discussed how Luke Schenn's market is starting to heat up with the 2023 NHL Trade Deadline being less than a week. Yet, he is not the only Canucks trade target heading into March 3, as winger Brock Boeser has also been discussed heavily in the rumor mill.

Boeser's agent Ben Hankinson and Canucks general manager (GM) Patrik Allvin have been working together to try to find the 2015 first-round pick a new home, so there's a good chance that we see the Minnesota native finally be moved. The 26-year-old is looking for a change of scenery, and we will find out shortly if he will get just that.

Boeser is an intriguing trade candidate, as he would be far more than just a rental for any team that acquires him. This is because he carries a $6.65 million cap hit until the completion of the 2024-25 season. Yet, when noting that Boeser can produce like a legitimate top-six forward while playing at his best, teams are interested in him.

At this juncture, Boeser's market is certainly starting to pick up some steam. Here's each team with a confirmed interest in the 6-foot-1 forward:

Buffalo Sabres
Calgary Flames
Detroit Red Wings
Minnesota Wild
Montreal Canadiens
New Jersey Devils
New York Islanders
Philadelphia Flyers
Pittsburgh Penguins
Washington Capitals

You may notice that some of the clubs linked to Boeser are non-playoff teams. With Boeser having term on his contract, it opens the door for them to pursue him.

When stars like Patrick Kane and Timo Meier are moved, do not be surprised to see more teams enter the Boeser sweepstakes. When thinking of a potential return for Boeser, a starting asking price for the Canucks should be a second-round pick and prospect.

Quick little note: Thank you all for such a warm welcome. I am ecstatic to provide you all with consistent content moving forward.
