Third time this year the Sedins have made a poor choice in OT, resulting in a GWG

Any idea why this was made public? Doesn't it weaken their position in a trade? I understand that most fans would trade him for a bag of pucks if that, but unless the worst-case return for the Canucks is nothing+a buyout, I don't understand why the Canucks would do this or be ok with that. As much as fans hate him, he's still a serviceable NHLer imo in the right capacity (bottom 6 PKer) at a reasonable freight and term.

I also read on twitter that Higgins isn't with the team until this situation is resolved. It seems that they've also put themselves on the clock for a deal.

No franchise has ever made public to move a player. Shitty Canucks management?

It all makes sense though.
The team is allowed to carry 23 players. So 2 goalies and 7 Dmen. When Sbisa returns, Pedan will be sent back to Utica.
Right now, there is 14 forwards with Sedin/Sedin/Burrows
Baertschi/Horvat/Vrbata
Higgins/Vey/Virtanen
Dorset/Cracknall/Prust
Etem/McCann

Once Sutter is ready to return, they will have 15 forwards so that is the deadline to move Higgins or put someone on waivers back to Utica.
Cracknall is a servicable 4th line center so I don't think he will go and Vey is WD's go to guy so they won't risk losing a young prospect that cost them a second round pick.
JB has made it clear Virtanen and McCann will not go back to juniors so they are staying.
That leaves Higgins as the odd man out right now.

Well put! But I still don't understand why they'd make the whole idea public. There can't be any positives to it that I can see.

It's made public to please the public.
How many people out there want this guy gone?

It's a PR move, saying hey guys, remember this guy that none of you like? We want to get rid of him too to make space for the young guys you like. Now buy a 4 game ice pack to see the kids play!

I betcha they have been trying to move him but no one wants him. Maybe they thought making it public might get a team they didn't know about interested in him.

It was made public because Dim Jim Benning isn't a bright guy

This is the same guy that publicly said "we're confident we can get at least a 2nd rounder for Eddie Lack" and ended up only getting 7th instead

ah right forgot about that 3rd. only remember the 7th cause that was the only pick that was announced officially at first lol

but still... its best to keep things behind closed doors than to boast you can get such and such and end up looking like a fool

Canucks GM confident he can get 'fairly high draft pick' for Lack or Markstrom | theScore.com

I wouldn't consider a 3rd + 7th a high return... especially when Dim Jim said publicly at the season ticket meeting afterwards that there were calls for Ryan Miller....

It was going to come out either way, when he wasn't on the ice this morning at practice.

Still an awkward situation though. I was listening to a few players basically wishing him their best, but he isn't even gone yet.. Lol
