I don't know if they are in a full rebuilt or trying to make playoffs, cus what they are doing is suicide. To rebuild, you trade away your assets at their highest point ie at trade deadline, get draft picks, let youngsters play and tank to get more draft picks. Then you draft and build from what you drafted.
Or you keep your assets including Lu, get rental(s) to address urgent needs ie socring, and try to make playoffs.
What ended up getting done was a mixture of the worst case from both scenarios. Traded Lu for nothing (no draft picks), now goal is facked. Didn't trade anyone else, meaning dimished value for the vets come summer now everyone knows the canucks are facked and is trying to off load and less chance for youngsters to play cus vets still hogging the lineup. And most importantly, the team now has one more problem: goal tending, aside from the previous one: scoring.
It doesn't take rocket science to figure out, really, and in short, Canucks are really facked.
