I really don't think MG will go for Lupul .. I hope we trade Luongo for young talents like Bozak or Gardiner Or Draft picks from Toronto!
And Florida will probably want to get rid of one of many goalies they will have! so probably Jose Theodore, and a top forward! Or draft picks from Florida. MG wants something big in return for Luongo! I think he could be waiting to see how negotiations go with Florida's GM, About Versteeg's new contract.

We have wingers, we need a centre.



we do not need a center. That's why Hodgson was traded

Lupul. He had slightly more goals and assists despite playing fewer games. Versteeg is a RW which would suit us more but in terms of who is more talented or at least productive offensively, Lupul is marginally better. Don't be fooled, Kessel is not a passer, he's a shoot first player, so Lupul scoring 25 goals is still pretty darn respectable. With the twins he'd likely be an automatic 30-35

"If a 6-foot-8 guy who can't skate asks to fight, you say no, then skate around him and score a goal."

I'd prefer Versteeg because he's a natural RW, but if we could get Franson along with Lupul? I'd go for that in a second! :P

"It's an opportunity, we don't look at it as a last chance... We look at it as an opportunity to do something great. We are going to take it period by period, shift by shift. You just have to be better than the guy across from you... Every guy in this locker room I can say believes we can do this." - Ryan Kesler

Hey Man , not to annoy or bug but you added Versteegs point up wrong he actually totalled 60 not 54 , cuz i was like woah lupul had way more in less games but yeah haha and versteeg doesnt have a kessell but yeah versteeg did amazing last year for like the first 40 50 games he was like a top point getter , good question though man

My Dream would be Sign Shane Doan at any cost and trade for Versteeg.

if the canucks cannot sign doan then some can agrue we need to get one in the Luongo trade , the two main teams being Panthers and Leafs two Right wings that would be nice on the second line would be Versteeg and Lupul just wondering who you guys would ranther want?

Joffery Lupul - GP:66 G:25 A:42 P:67 +/- 1 PIM: 48


Kris Versteeg - GP:71 G:23 A:37 P:54 +/- 4 PIM:49

You should really put this kind of thread in the Proposals forum. Just because you want a poll doesn't mean you can post it in Canucks Talk.

We're not going to get either, but if I had to choose I'd take Lupul. He has health issues, but has way more natural talent. He's also a playmaker, which is exactly what we need next to Kesler.
What is the deal with Mike Gillis, it always seems like he's sweating...

Trade for Kris Versteeg. Play maker for the Kesler Line.

Sign Shane Doan. Big body for the Sedin Line.

Would rather see the Canucks pick up a big young center from Florida.
Luongo for Matthias, Petrovic, 2nd.

I said Versteeg. I think he is younger and has higher upside. I would be so stoked to get him.
