    in my opinion one of the best contracts in the NHL

    ON A 45 goal pace this season.

    Who would be the best comparable past or present?

    canucks cant afford to move him outside of a massive overpayment

    blue chip prospect + 1st and a replacement center? something like that? not remotely fair value but it's the only thing the Canucks could stomach moving him for

    Even as a Canucks fan let’s slow it down.

    He’s had a very strong start to the season. He’s been improving his offensive numbers each year from 25, 40, to 52. Limited to 64 games last season due to a foot injury. His 44 point would have prorated to around 57/58 points.

    If Pettersson can play the 1C role, that allows Bo to slide down to the 2C role which is where he best fits. But the Canucks need to upgrade their wingers after Boeser. Bo will need some help.

    How about to Philly for Nolan Patrick? Philly can throw in Lehtera to offset salaries

    Philly get a solid #2 C, while Vancouver continues their rebuild by gambling on Patrick's upside to become a #1 C

    No thanks.

    Bo is our next captain. The heart and soul of our team. No way I trade him for those guys.

    Bo has been what the Canucks needed for a long time why do you think they gave up Schnider for him with no goalie to replace him knowing he wasnt even in his prime yet? They knew they were getting their Ryan Kesler replacenent qnd future captain. Kid hasnt even hit his stride yet and now he finally looks like he is going to slot into the 2C for good which is his bread and butter is Petterson can prove his worth there. And Boesser that bastard with a shot more beautiful then a G D puck bunny. When I lived in Vancouver on and off during their run and soon after collapse and they were my #2 team until the year they drafted Horvat basically this was the team I dreamed of. Why trade any of them now?

    Van fans is Demko in the bigs yet I have incredibly high expectations from him I wanted him in Columbus his draft year. Love your guys past few drafts. Your no longer my #2 team because me and that ex have bad blood so I have to actively root against them but the players I mentioned I just cant haha

    Not sure if OP is Canuck fan or opposing fan but either way. Bo is as untouchable as Elias and Brock. He’s our most complete player, future captain and leader.

    Nope. And in before Leaf fans go crazy. Nylander may be better offensively but Bo’s game is so much more complete. Oh and he’s actually playing this season.

    He's one of those players that has more value to his team than around the league

    That would be interesting. He would slot in as the 2C and it would be a family line of

    Lindblom - Horvat - Konecny

    Since Horvat and Konecny are cousins.

    A bit early to be throwing around The “on pace for 45 goals”. It’s 8 games. By the same token would you say that Boeser is on a 20 goal pace? Horvat is a great player. But do t try to paint him
    As something he’s not. And a 45 goal guy isn’t what he is

    Only way imo he’s dealt is to try to get 1st overall in Jack Hughes.

    Trading Horvat would be idiotic... So it’s right up Jim’s alley

    Only way the Canucks should even entertain the idea of moving Horvat is in the off-season if they end up winning the lottery and drafting Jack Hughes and some team offers a potential #1 d-man for Bo. Even then, it would have to be a great, young defenseman.

    And Matthews is on pace for 91 goals.

    The 'on pace' discussion this early in the year is fun brain candy, but also frivolous

    I think the "Horvat is an ideal second center" narrative is stale. He's a number one center. Also, there is little push from Petterson who is defenseless at this level.

    Horvat is a power forward with team leadership. These are rare. The value is above rubies.

    Yep, there's pretty much no reason for the Canucks to trade Horvat short of in a package for Jack Hughes/young-ish elite center or a defenseman with reasonably likely elite upside.

    Considering neither of those possibilities are remotely realistic, safe to say we will keep Horvat.
