Recently we have learnt that Kesler and Booth will not be able to play for quite some time. We also have some serious offensive questions to answer, like for example is Kassian ready to play with the sedin? who should play on the second line during Kesler and Booths absence? and who should be the 3rd line center and 4h line center? Based upon what ive seen is that unless kassian has made serious strides of improvement over the year I do not think he should play alongside the sedins, we need to get off to a fast start so i think burrows is the intelligent option. I also beleive that to answer the 2nd line questions I would move Higgins to center which is where he played for some time in MTL, and i would play raymond at boothes spot and possibly a trade aquisition in the other wing spot. On the third line I think Lapierre has done more then enough to earn the green light to be a ble to center it. so i would play lappy at center and move kassian up and have hansen on the otherside. and for the fourth i would have Manny "heart,respect" Malhotra with Weise, Volpatti and a trade aquisition. Jumping to who we should aquire in the LU to T.O deal i would say Kulemin,biggs,Schrivens,,6th. The d looks fine and i would look to sign a goaltender.
My lines would look ike this
Sedins-Burrows
Kulemin-Higgins-Raymond
Hansen-Lapierre-Kassian
Volpatti-Manny-Weise
Future prospects=Biggs,Jensen,Schroder,Gaunce
Bieksa-Hamhuis
Edler-Garrison
Ballard-Tanev
Barker-Vandermeer
*If Ballard,Booth do not play up to par trade them or buy them out

I wouldn't make that Luongo trade. Would rather play with the injured line-up we have now.

That's gotta be the worst nickname ever. I've honestly never seen a nickname with a comma in it. I will continue to use this for Manny from now on, hope it catches on, then laugh at how much I hate myself.

shouldnt this be in the proposals section. its more of a proposal to trade Lu and solve our injury troubles than anything. and BTW thats a bad trade. Kulemin was garbage last year, scrivens is not even as good as lack, biggs is promising and the 6th is useless.

I don't think there's any way Luongo can stay with how weak that forward lineup looks. Can't believe I actually pencilled Raymond in. :sick:

TO does not want to trade Gardiner. And with a concussion, MG probably would not want to trade for him now, although he is an excellent young talent.

I wish we would give arnott a try. Even if he turns out to be to old and slow then it makes it even easier when Kes and Booth are healthy again.

Daniel - Henrik - Burrows
Raymond - Ebbett - Kassian
Higgins - Lapierre - Hansen
Wiese - Malhotra - Volpatti

I think this may be what we see to start. If, and its a big if, Kassian plays well in the first couple games swap him and Burrows. This would only be about balance. I could also see Raymond and Higgins swap places if Raymond doesn't produce quickly.

I think the D are set. The only question is who is sent down to the Wolves.

Loungo will be a Canuck on Saturday. MG will wait a couple weeks to see who is weak in goal and who offers the best value.

A reasonable solution until Lou's trade is bring Jensen back over.

I personally think that we should keep both goalies and give them equal playing time this season. Make the decision at or before the deadline. I just dont think that Luongo is to blame for the problems plaguing this team. You need to score goals to win. Start addressing the lack of scoring and go from there.

The reasonable thing to do would be to KEEP Luongo, who is an all-star calibur goalie, and not throw all our eggs in 1 basket in hopes that Schneider can even play a half season or more and keep his level of play up. The only thing he's proven so far is that he's a good backup. My confidence is still with Lu, 9 out of 10 games, and if you're one of the many throwing him under the bus, then you are an ignorant fool easily swayed by the media.

The more I think about it, if that is all we are going to get fir an all star goalie lets just play the young guys in more prominent roles and see what happens. If the Canucks flame out they get a decent player in a deep draft and can re-tool for next season.

Let's face it, the injuries to Kesler and booth show us just how little true scoring depth there is on this team and I don't see it repaired in the short term only by trading Luongo.

This team will only go as far as Kesler takes them, so look for a slow start untill he's back. And with this shortened season it better not be for too long or they may be out of it in a month?

Wow if this is it for a month or so that's a pretty weak lineup other than the top line. They better hope the twins play lights out ?

True enough, however the trade suggested by the OP doesn't address the lack of scoring right now and makes the team weaker in goal without any substantial improvement in the top-6. Kulemin is perhaps a third liner here, and Biggs would be a great pick-up but is likely not going to be in the NHL for another couple of years (at least).

G.
