Again, as every year, the Canucks must get another 1C and a 1D in order to have any chance at the Cup moving forward.

Suter comes for free in terms of exchanged assets and could be an excellent place to look in order to finally seal the deal on defense. If not, then I'm perfectly confident the Canucks have the pieces to acquire Weber via trade. I will not speculate what it would take.

If the inevitable occurs and one of Schneider or Luongo is to go, then severely push for either Lecavalier, E. Staal, J. Staal, Thornton or Spezza: all are on mediocre teams that would seriously think at the opportunity of landing one of our EXCELLENT goaltenders.

Kesler is misused. He is the best third line center in the game. He thrives in being a pest against top lines and so does Burrows. Five million dollars for a third line center is a lot? Not winning the Cup costs millions more in playoff revenue.

Lecavalier - While still a decent player, not worth his +7 cap hit
E. Staal - Ward and his +6 cap hit say Hi. Also has +8 cap hit
J Staal - Fleury and now Vokoun say Hi
Thornton - Doubt they move him for goalie (if at all), but most plausible on list
Spezza - Anderson, Bishop, and Lehner all say Hello, plus Spezza had a bounce back year - doubt they try to move him now - especially if Alffy isn't coming back

beast huh? and changes comment please.


No not beast.

We could get something better for Schneider and I would rather not blow 12 Mill on a self-first guys like Semin and Radulov, they aren't playoff players and that is way too much money for Semin.

Our defense is weak, even weaker than last years, and Hansen would not play on the 4th.

This doesn't put us any closer to the cup.

The defense issues are what is hurting the Canucks. Outside of Hamhuis, Bieksa, and Ballard, the rest of our defense is pretty soft.

Edler - Way to inconsistent, never drops the gloves or defends his team.
Salo - A jedi on defense, but once again not going to intimidate anyone......except for poor wittle Marchand.
Alberts - Can hit, but gets his ass kicked EVERY time he drops the gloves.
Rome - Can stay or go.
Tanev - Ice in his veins, but too young to really be intimidating.

If the Canucks go into next season with no change to defense and don't attempt to find a viable 1st-2nd line center and or wing, we won't make it out of round 1 again.

The goalie situation is another ball of wax. I think if Luongo had a truly great defense in front of him, he would have been hoisting a Cup already. But that's the thing. The dumbass Canucks fans will blame him for the problems this team faced.

We need to sign defenseman who will take the body, who have the size to make the opposing forwards pay for their mistake, and who will be team players bleeding blue and green. Someone runs Henrik or Daniel? That someone has a bullseye on their back.

We need to sign forwards who are above average skaters (both speed and manuverability) possess an accurate shot with force, and are willing to crash the net and team players standing up for their fellow Canucks.

We have some Bieksa, Burrows, Lapierre, Hansen, hell even Hank has begun to. I love the Canucks and have since I went to games with my dad at the PC. This team is near the best Canucks team in the 42 year history. A couple of trades and a couple of signings will ensure our destiny.

Otherwise if nothing happens or the trades are bunk, Gillis and Vigneault won't be here come June 2013.

Huge Overpayment, Johansen is good but not worth that much because Huselius's rights aren't worth much since he is a UFA and probably won't re-sign, it would basicly be trading all that for just Johansen, which is a terrible deal.

So a #1 center, a young, beast of a goalie, for a player who has yet to prove himself and a pending UFA? :picard:

In my eyes drouin is overrated he can score in the qmjhl but did nothing in last two gold medal games that canada lost. Fox will be better pro than him talk to me in five yrs

Gaudreau has one NHL goal whereas all your "prized" prospects have none.

   ryan kesler is going to the chicago blackhawks ...       quote me on it

And I see you have changed your proposal, I would rather not go for an aging No Show Joe, and Lecaviler isn't really a star anymore, and that huge cap hit isn't worth it.

And Ottawa doesn't need a goaile, And Shane Doan won't leave the Yotes. This new one isn't much better

You're a huge homer, what I see is a shutdown 3rd line center, a good young goalie, for a 4th overall pick with 1st line potential, and someone who's a first line forward when healthy.

Kesler is the most glorified 3rd line center i've ever seen, he was awful this season and the playoffs.
