Things get worse for the Vancouver Canucks as their MVP no longer wants to be with the team

Vancouver has been shipping out talent and people regularly after they moved on from Bruce Boudreau. Bo Horvat is the latest victim of the new regime in the Vancouver Canucks organization.

With Boudreau out, it looks like along with Horvat, another player may want out of the organization.


Sources close to the Vancouver Canucks believe that Thatcher Demko wants out of the Canucks according to Farhan Lalji.


Thatcher Demko was once touted as the Vancouver Canucks #1 goalie and absolutely lived up to the role for two years. However, since then he's suffered 2 injuries and struggled to put up the numbers he once did, as he was 3-10-2 with a .883 SV% before being placed on the injured reserve for 6 weeks as of December 6th. His contract is easily moveable, as he is currently on a team-friendly deal until 2026 as well, so Allvin moving him for assets might not be a terrible idea if he can get prospects or picks for the goalie.

Elliot Friedman also reported that Demko may be on the block during the trade deadline, it may serve Demko and Canucks to part ways, as Demko never got the support he really needed in his time there.
