After an active start this off season in the free agency frenzy, the Vancouver Canucks have been relatively quiet. With so many teams constrained by the salary cap, making significant roster changes has become more difficult. However, now the Canucks are reportedly looking to move their veteran defender, Tyler Myers.

These rumours have surfaced all summer and detail that the Canucks are looking to improve their back end. After adding Ian Cole, it appears that Myers could be the roster casualty.
Myers is in the final year of a contract that will pay him $6,000,000 this season, including $5,000,000 in bonuses. While most contracts indicate the bonus will be paid on July 1st, Myers deal has a unique structure. Instead, Myers bonus is set to be paid out September 15th, which means that after that date, Myers could become a much more attractive trade target.
Now according to Eklund of Hockey Buzz , speculation has picked up around Myers.
Hearing quite a few teams in in the big, but wildly inconsistent D man...The Rangers, San Jose, Washington and Florida are all poking around on Myers.

In accordance with the report of the Canucks wanting to improve their defence, it seems to be a certainty that Myers will be moved after his bonuses are paid out by the team. With 5 million in real cash off the books, Myers will be seen as a much more practical trade target for teams around the league.
