NHL Rumors: On the Vancouver Canucks and Pending RFA Elias Pettersson

A quick follow-up to the Vancouver Canucks-Elias Pettersson offer

The Fourth Period: David Pagnotta on his report last week on the Vancouver Canucks having an offer on the table for Elias Pettersson.

** NHLRumors.com transcription

Pagnotta: “Speaking of Intel. I will address this. As I mentioned last week it kind of, I tried to be subtle about it, but the Elias Pettersen situation in Vancouver. Look, I trust my source. He is someone who very much would know about this situation. It’s a $12 million dollar AAV on the table for Petey.

Look, this isn’t anything negative. I wasn’t trying to put out anything negative to the situation, just reinforcing the fact that his focus is on winning and keeping things going. The offers there if he wants to take it. Now I was told long-term. I believe eight. We’ll see where that goes but it’s on the table. That’s the situation that’s going on in Vancouver.

In today’s Trade Deadline primer, presented by @CCMHockey, me & @DennisTFP touch on #SeaKraken contract talks with Eberle, #LetsGoPens taking calls on Smith, Rakell, Pettersson & goalies, who the #CauseChaos could go after, what the #GoBolts want, #GoHabsGo in Paris, and more. pic.twitter.com/UTQhxfMopb
