Canucks 2020 trade candidates: Forward Sven Baertschi

The next two offseasons could define the tenure of Vancouver Canucks general manager Jim Benning, to say the least.

With very limited cap room, Benning has to find a way to extend top goalie and reigning team MVP Jacob Markstrom. He will have to keep at least one of Chris Tanev (a pending UFA) and Troy Stecher (a pending RFA). There is no way Benning can afford to lose both blueliners.

Franchise stars Elias Pettersson and Quinn Hughes will be RFAs after next season.
