To Vancouver:
Vladimir Tarasenko, Berglund.

To St.Louis
Alex Edler, Jannik Hansen


This is my first proposal, give me some suggestions and I will edit it.

Vancouver gets a perfect third line centre along with a top prospect.

St.Louis stacks up their defense even more and gets a great third or second liner.


To Vancouver: Cody Franson, Joe Colborne

To Toronto: Roberto Luongo, 3rd round pick

Vancouver helps there defense after losing Edler, gets a decent prospect.

Toronto gets an amazing goaltender and a pick.

It's probably close to fair.

The thing I don't like about this is what it does to our defense. We lost a 50 pt dman last year, and now we'd be losing another. Unless we get a solid puck moving defenseman in the Luongo trade (or by other means) I wouldn't even think about moving Edler.

I 100% agree with you. But yes if we had someone already in place for Edler's departure I would think its a fair trade.

1st Trade: maybe

2nd Trade: pretty good

Would be better not to give up Hansen. Replace Hansen with Raymond and a second and I would be for it. Or even just get rid of Hansen and Berglund out of the deal altogether.

I can't for the life of me understand why people want to trade Hansen. Anything you get back in return for him won't bring to the table what Hansen brings. He is the kind of versatile 3rd liner that are required for a championship team. Every team would love to pry Hansen from the Canucks for peanuts, not saying the return you speak of is peanuts but in reality, I don't see St. Louis even doing this trade and to me this would be the minimum I would accept to lose a piece like Hansen.

If building a Stanley Cup winning team is like a jigsaw puzzle and a matter of putting all the pieces in place, to me the piece that is Hansen is already what it needs to be and would be impossible to replace through trade and with a similar cap hit.

Maybe I am overvaluing Hansen but I have never seen a Canuck in all my years watching them bring it the way he does game in and game out every shift. He has earned everything he has and if all Canucks had his work ethic, tenacity and desire we wouldn't be talking about if the Canucks could win a cup soon but rather how many more can they win in this dynasty.

I think these trades would hinder our chances for next season.

If we were going to trade Edler and Hansen, I'd want a 1st rd pick included too.
My 2014 Draft wishlist: 1st rd: Draisaitl, Virtanen, Scherbak. 2nd rd: Brendan Lemieux, Thatcher Demko (Goalie)

i cant see the blues giving up one of their top prospects, even if they get edler and hansen. as for the toronto deal, its not bad at all. seeing as how were probably gonna get hosed in any luongo trade, we could do alot worse.

The STL deal is fair value but it doesn't really help our cause for next year.... remember our window is starting to close.

The second trade I'd do but make the pick a lower round

St. Louis doesn't do it.
A lot of fans are already pegging him as their next Brett Hull.

Toronto trade is decent, though I'm not sold on Colbrone being any more than a Paul Gaustad like player.

Apparently ESPN is run by a bunch of Gun Toting redneck NASCAR lovers and the only way Hansen regresses next season is if there is a lockout or he sustains a serious injury.

I like the value in the St.Louis one but I dont wanna give up Edler or Hansen, cause there goes our cup chances.

I would do the Toronto one though.

The only way we get hosed in the Luongo trade is if we only get half a bag of pucks in return.

Edler has 1 bad playoff and he is in trade proposals, go ahead and trade him to St Louis and face them in a potential playoff round. St Louis would take that deal any day and laugh and laugh and laugh some more.

Or because he has 1 year left on his contract and is pricing himself out of being a canuck?

You know this for sure right? The Canucks will do eveything they can to keep Edler and if talks with him go sideways he will get more than this proposal in a trade.
