The Canucks completed a trade with the Pittsburgh Penguins involving four players yesterday, and they might be doing it again today. At least, that's what David Pagnotta reports about Conor Garland.

There seems to be some movement on the Conor Garland front; hearing a 3rd team could be in play. Talks w/ teams like #Preds #AllCaps #CBJ & at least 1 more Eastern team are ongoing. The #Canucks want this done sooner than later, but $$ is a big factor. How creative can they get?
