The Vancouver Canucks have finalized a deal with the San Jose sharks today.
The Canucks will send alex burrows, Chris Higgins and a 2015 2nd for impending free agent Patrick marleau, micro mueller and san Jose's 2015 1st round pick.
The Canucks will be holding 500k salary on burrows.
The Canucks commented on the trade by saying they truly did not want to give up alex burrows but this deal was too good to pass up. They wish burrows and Higgins the best. On marleau the Canucks had to say that they are excited to see what he and Kesler can do together on the 2nd line together. They finally have acquired a 4th huge offensive threat which the team had been lacking for years by giving up some of the extra depth.
