The rumor mill is just a spinning these days with what seems to be the inevitable - that Kevin Bieksa will be traded.
There have been a number of teams mentioned with the first one being Columbus Blue Jackets and now San Jose Sharks.
I can’t see why the Canucks would want to trade a gritty type D-man in Bieksa to a team (Sharks) that they have had trouble beating over the last three seasons (2W).
Both have a number of players that would help the Canucks third line and reduce the Bieksa - $3.75 million cap hit.
So with that in mind I took a look at who might be trade material if the other teams were willing to make the deal.
First off three players from the San Jose system and then two from Columbus.
