PlayNow.com Lists J.T. Miller as Favourite to be Traded by Canucks This Offseason

June 06, 2022


Are J.T. Miller's days as a Canuck numbered? Despite a career-best 98-point performance this season, B.C.'s PlayNow.com has the star forward listed as a trade chip favoured to be on the move this summer for the first time since last year.

Miller has one year left on a bargain contract and the Canucks are pressed with options as they ponder the potential risk of losing their best player to free agency in 2023. After coming up short for a playoff spot again, can the Canucks create cap space to reward Miller, or will the coveted forward be granted a hefty contract elsewhere?

On PlayNow.com, B.C.’s local sportsbook, Miller’s odds of being traded are higher than at any point during his Canucks tenure (1.77), compared to his odds at the trade deadline (3.50) and prior to last season (5.00).

Miller aside, veteran forward Tanner Pearson (2.10) is another candidate to potentially be traded. With two years remaining in his current deal, Pearson has been a model of consistency in the forward group, suggesting the Canucks could land a modest return for the left winger.

Other players with trade potential on PlayNow.com include Conor Garland (2.50), Tyler Myers (3.00) and Oliver Ekman-Larsson (7.00)
