I think he's a great solution to our Defensive needs, not too sure what we'd have to give up for him, but he's a young Two-way Defencemen with a right handed shot. And I think Alex would fit in just fine in Vancouver. Alex-Alex could be one of our D lines, he could work well with Edler. He also comes with a low cap hit, it's a hell of a deal if Gillis can pull it off for the right price.

Yeah... talented, strong, physical forwards who can score? check.
mobile puck movers who can put up points? check.
solid goaltending tandem? Oh yeah.
talented prospect pipeline? (we don't even have that) yeup.

Yet, we want to take their crown jewel on D and franchise D. He'll be very expensive, that's for sure.

Dream on. Pietrangelo will be the best defense man in the league for years to come. Should have been the Norris winner this year.

It really showed in the playoffs, when King injured Pietrangelo. After that, St.Louis fell apart.

It would be a ridiculous price.

If we did it we would lose a significant piece or two from our organization.

a significant piece or two? St.Louis wouldn't accept a trade for Pietrangelo even if the Canucks offered their whole team.

I agree, it would be easier to get Webber right now then Alex, Atlanta drafted him expecting him to be their 1A for what looks like the next 10 years, Webber looks like he may wait a year and leave as a RFA.

You just saw 'BureV' type Weber. You then you agreed with 'BureV', implying you did indeed read what was written. You then proceeded to call him Webber twice all while forming four sentences separated by commas.

Raymond, Ballard and a 1st ;)

No but seriously, it would take a Sedin, Hamhuis, Edler, Luongo, 1st, 1st to get Piets. And I am not going to sacrifice half of our core for him.

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.

Would be a great player for us but he;'s not going anywhere. STL was willing to trade away Johnson because they had him. He's their #1 defenseman. Young, big, strong and offensively skilled. His low cap hit is due to his ELC which will turn to a big cap hit once it expires

Look at it this way:

If you wouldn't trade Pietrangelo, chances are they won't either regardless of what you throw at them.

Pff easy to get St. Louis to trade him... every future Draft pick of the Canucks for Pietrangelo and then hope that the world ends in 2013 with the Canucks Stanley Cup champs.

Nobody on the Canucks is worth close to Pietrangelo, if I was Dougie Armstrong, I wouldn't trade Pietrangelo for any package from the Canucks. The only player i'd trade him for would be a healthy Crosby, he will win multiple Norrises in the future, he'll almost be as good as Lidstrom.

I guess you've never seen him play, I bet you didn't even know who he was until a couple of months ago.

Well start with Kesler and Edler and add from there. This guy is one of if not the best young defenceman around.

He's just another over hyped Canadian, pass.

Quote

Death is certain, replacing both the siren-song of Paradise and the dread of Hell. Life on this earth, with all its mystery and beauty and pain, is then to be lived far more intensely: we stumble and get up, we are sad, confident, insecure, feel loneliness and joy and love. There is nothing more; but I want nothing more.
