It was more or less a public plea for any team to take Higgins off of Vancouver's hands - something rarely if ever seen in NHL circles.

Actually, today was the season ticket holders signature day and town hall meeting.
I went to last year's town hall meeting and it was where season ticket holders were allowed to ask TL and JB any questions they wanted.
I bet TL told everyone at the meeting that the team is on the right track by going with this youth movement.
Plus Sbisa and Sutter are scheduled to follow the team on the road trip so at some point, with the addition of Etem, they were going to be over on the allowed number of players.
What will really be interesting is when Hamhuis comes back.
Who will be the odd Dman out. For Hamhuis, he is scheduled to be back in a month away, which should be before the trade deadline. Will he be on the trading blocks? Someone else on D? Or put Biega on waivers and send him back to Utica? I doubt the last scenario seeing how well he is playing. Send Hutton back to Utica? Do they have to clear him on waivers to send him to Utica?

Higgins won't be missed, he wasn't even good enough to be on the 4th line.

Once Hansen comes back from IR, that means someone else needs to go to free up space.
For forwards, the only guys that i can see them trading is Prust, Vrbata, Burrows and Cracknall.
Cracknall maybe less likely as they really should carry a bigger bodied guy that can play C or wing in case the team makes the playoffs.
Prust is on a 1 year deal so if we don't hear anything about re-signing him, then I can see him gone either at the trade deadline or at the end of the year.
Vrbata I can see being traded for a 1st round pick. I'd do it in a heart beat if a team is looking for a sniper to help get them over that hump in the playoffs.
Burrow's contract may be too big for anyone to take a chance on. So even if he is on the trading blocks, maybe no one will take the gamble on him.

So Higgins said that he will work with the Canucks to find a Suitor for him and he didn't request the trade.

don't think I've seen a team send out an official statement that a player is being moved publicly like Higgins' situation at the moment

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.
Can the position be any weaker?

3 points in 25 games
33 years old in June
Signed next year for $2.5M
No trade clause

Higgins: 3 points in 351 minutes (1 point per 117 minutes)
John Scott: 1 point in 69 minutes (1 point per 69 minutes)

Honestly, if the Canucks can get someone to take him while retaining half his salary for literally anything besides a cap dump back, I'd be surprised.

Hutton doesn't need waivers.

Gomez and Redden were literally told to go home and not to come back unless their respective GMs could work out a trade; if not, they wanted to buy them out at the end of the season.

Edmonton and Sheldon Souray after Souray called out management.

Getting calls on Miller isn't relevant. For all we know that could have meant garbage offers or just simple tire kickers.

It was common sense that they'd both still be putting up legit numbers. Trading Schneider away for Bo Horvat was one of the dumbest moved this team has every made.

I'm sure Schneider really wanted to stay after it came out into the media that Kes was teeing off on his old lady.. Lol
