Kesler, Ballard, and Edler for RNH, Eberle, and Tuebert, and a 2nd rounder which turns to a first rounder if Edler signs with Edmonton.

This gives us a tremendous boost to our offense, but

Garrison - Bieksa
Ballard - Smid
Tanev - Alberts

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

Would not trade a guy who hasn't even hit his prime yet and already had a 40 goal Selke season.

They would have to give us 2 of their top 4 young forwards to pry him away.

Hamhuis is the most important D man to us, no way we can trade him without an equal replacement.

When you take out Bieksa and Edler and only put in Smid, then yes, it is that bad.

Hahaha that would rock that city harder than the Gretzky trade. Imagine the outrage...

"They turned us in to the frackin Canucks???.. And we lose Hall and Ebs???"

Gretzky, Smyth and now this hahaha they couldn't handle it a 3rd time and would probably burn the city down

You would even suggest that Edmonton trades away their core players for an injury prone 2nd line centre and a couple of top 4 defenders?? I have no time for such nonsense.

'Hamhuis a top 4 defenseman' :lol: Hammer is a top 2 on 90% of NHL teams.

He was a legit top pairing defenseman before coming to Vancouver. Whatever reason, his game died. Coaching and poorly utilized? Maybe. A player's ability doesn't just disappear overnight.

LOL at the star-gazing Oil fans here who think this deal favours Vancouver.

Wouldn't consider that for a moment from the Canucks side.

It improves Edmonton. Their shaky blueline has UFAs Whitney, Smid and Sutton. They have a pair of Schultzes, Petry and Potter signed to one more season. They can have all the young gun forwards they want - they are going to need some serious help on the back end. They'd be lucky to land a pair of the NHL's top 15 blueliners. Gillis would laugh at this idea like a Tony Gallagher article.

The deal cripples the Canucks blueline and takes weakens them where they have the least depth - center.

Smid, no thanks. Hall is the last of their glitzy #1s that I'd want and at the position of least interest.

The only part of that deal I would consider is Eberle for Kesler one for one - and that would leave the Canucks shopping frantically for a center or two.

Makes no sense for Vancouver.
