Hmmm... but the Canucks only have 6 NHL defencemen under contract right now:
Hamhuis (29) -Bieksa (31)
Edler(26) - ?
Ballard (29) -Tanev (22)
Plus they have a few possibilities in Chicago:
Sauve (left) (22)
Connauton (left) (22)
Polasek (left) (20)
I'd say that things are looking a little thin, and it's unlikely that they'll look to be trading anyone...
