Canucks’ president Trevor Linden took told TSN 1040 on Thursday that the sides have had encouraging talks as discussions move forward.
“All options are on the table. I think we’ve explored many of the options, anything from two to eight [years]” Linden said on the program.
“We’ve had some good conversations with Bo and his rep, Newport Sports, who I was a client of there’s and we’ve done several contracts with them” Linden explained.
“I would say they have been very positive. We’re looking forward to getting Bo under contract. Out of respect to the process I don’t want to say a whole lot, but things have been very positive.
We’re moving along and I don’t see any issues.”
Vancouver is hopeful that a deal can be worked out before the start of training camp.
“Bo’s a quality kid and a good character guy and he’s been great through the process, not that’s he’s been specifically involved in the conversations, but we’re working hard at things to avoid not having him at training camp” Linden said.
