Report: Canucks’ Pettersson wants to ‘play for a team that’s winning’ - Sportsnet
“I want to stay (in Vancouver) now, but I also want to play for a team that’s winning and has the chance to go far into the playoffs every year,” Pettersson said in Swedish as translated by Bodin.
“I feel like we’ve got a chance to do that next year. If we have that chance when my next deal expires ... I don’t know. I just want to play where there’s a chance of winning.”
Pettersson needs four more years of professional experience to make UFA, so you’re either going to trade for him or you’re going to try to get the Canucks to fail an offer sheet challenge (which is effectively a trade). I’m real curious where his window and the Wings’ window potentially intersects, but I have a feeling they never line up perfectly.
