The Vancouver Canucks are heading into a "make it or break it roadtrip," as categorized by TSN Hockey Insider Bob McKenzie, and how well or poorly they do will dictate their actions leading up to the March 1 trade deadline.
During Tuesday night's "Insider Trading" segment on TSN, McKenzie reported that if the Canucks have an ugly roadtrip, they'll likely head into selling mode by the deadline.
The Canucks do not have too many players to sell, in terms of being in the final year of their contracts; only veteran forward Alexandre Burrows and goaltender Ryan Miller would generate serious interest.
But, as McKenzie pointed out, "Burrows and Miller would be the two highest profiled guys in that (sellers) category" and could generate plenty of interest if they are willing to waive their no-trade clauses.
Canucks GM Jim Benning has indicated in the past that he would not approach either player would waiving their clauses, but if the right offer presented itself, McKenzie believes Benning will approach the players with the opportunities as they arise.
Burrows and Miller are set to become unrestricted free agents July 1.
