It's funny how people's views change after Getzlaf had a bad season. Before last year, he had 4 straight seasons of being over a point per game. He's big, he can pass, play physical, fight, and he has a cup under his belt. And I'm 100% sure he would be motivated on a much better team like the Canucks.


Getzlaf would be a beast centering our second line... If only we could get without losing Kesler, the twins, Burrows, Bieksa, Hamhuis, Edler and Schnieder.

Daniel - Henrik - Burrows
Booth - Getzlaf - _____
Higgins - Kesler - Hansen
Malholtra - Lapierre - _____

We would barely need to use our 4th line unless we were protecting the lead. Alos, if Kassian somehow breaks out this season and miraculously fits well with the twins, Burrows can slot down on the second line and we'd have quite the stacked team. Kesler's ice time wont be decreased by too much (plus, it wouldn't hurt to rest Kesler as much as possible since he is coming back from surgery and we need him at 100% to log big minutes in the playoffs.

Our powerplay would be unstoppable. Getzlaf would open up so much more space for everyone, and we'd likely have a unit that could move the puck better than any other team in the league. The Twins already create such nice plays, just imagine how much nicer the plays will be with arguably one of the best passers in the league joining two more of the best passers in the world. =)

you can't expect to get a superstar for our garbage. You have to give something to get something.

They might be two of the best players in franchise history, but they are not versatile enough; they are in fact a one act show.

A Captain does it all. A Captain is an inspiration. Henrik inspires diving. He plays as if everything is due to him. So does Daniel. For example, instead of standing up for himself while being slapped around by a Boston prick, he was waiting for a call that never came.

Malkin and Staal don't f*ck around.


Good thing Malkin has Sidney Crosby to drop the gloves for him:

Kassian.... Taylor Pyatt 3.0

Lies. He's more of a Steve Bernier. Hopefully his talent level goes up so he can become like a Taylor Pyatt.

Pretty sure kesler is more valuable to us than getzlaf would be


Pretty sure your wrong. More valuable if you like inconsistent diving players who rarely show up. More valuable eye candy for the ladies, sure. Kesler is SO overrated and if we landed Getzlaf, the real fans that know the game and what it takes to win would be saying Kesler who? Very quickly.

The Dub would be a sweet 3rd line C. But he is a bit pricey for the third line (4.2 i think)

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


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

Yeah,It doesn't even seem like we can send cap space the other way because that's what they're trying to lose.

We currently have $15M+ in cap space. If NYR just wants to dump cap on us we can send them a prospect and a pick. Something like Sauvé and a 3rd.

Would definitely be a slick 3rd line center or even a 2nd line winger

Hopefully Gillis tries to acquire Ott again and might as well try for Fistric too.

Kesler + some throw in picks and prospect for Getzlaf


OMG do you watch Hockey. Getlaf is lazy!!

Why would you trade a tough gritty leader for big and lazy!

Enough on Getzlaf, there's a reason why Anaheim wants to get rid of him.

Dude Kesler aside. Getzlaf is Lazy...watch him play. Wow, you see him have one good year because of Perry and play in the olympics with All Stars and now he's a stud?

Anaheim wants to dump him....maybe a reason hey? Nah couldn;t be a reason why you'd want to dump the hardest asset to find in the NHL, a big strong center with skill...oh oh maybe attitude and effort? ahh ay that could be it..

Too bad he doesn't play defense and is lazy

Big sniper for the Sedins.The missing ingredient to make Kesler Booth work.The hard hitting bottom sixes that Gillis can't seem to have any luck getting.Rock Defender or PP QB.Which problem might Mike solve Friday?
