after checking out the league standings and seeing how little the canucks are scoring compared to teams like the St. Louis blues, chicago blackhawks, etc...it makes me really wondering why Gillis thinks we would benefit so much from having one goaltender making 4-5 mill on the bench each night.
Our scoring is dependent on the sedins and Kassian who is really still learning the league. We do not utilize Garrison at all...
so offensively how much more does this team want to undermine itself.
Yes we can wait for Kesler to return to form, booth as well, but the fact is we lack scoring depth and we have a grade A asset on the bench each night.
Do we really want to waste this year of the "sedin window?"
There are alot of offensive players out there and crap teams and instead of trying to fill multiple roles with mediocre players via trade:
ex: Luongo for a back up goalie, a pick and a top 9 player, (brouwer, first, Neuvirth-which I had considered until I realized we dont score)
I think we need to get a grade A asset for a grade A asset
schneider, first, Cannauton, Booth, for Backes 3rd.
