So Mike Smith looks like he'll be injured for a while and Labarbara has been lit up of late, Phoenix needs a goalie.

Roberto Luongo and Schroeder for Antoine Vermette and Korpikoski

We get two 40 point players, a great centerman who can fill in for Kesler and play the 3rd line center spot comfortably while providing solid defence and physical play during the playoffs. Korpikoski has nice size and will fit in well with the new generation of Canucks (Kassian, Hansen, Jensen, Gaunce etc.)

Phoenix get an all-star goalie and a replacement for Vermette, plus Schroeder would fit nicely with the younger guys in Phoenix (OEL, Boedker, Yandle etc.).

Not sure if it's even enough but injuries open up chances for trades...

Makes no sense for Phoenix.

What happens when Smith comes back? They have 2 starting goaltenders and have lost 2 huge pieces of there team.

No reason for Phoenix to do this.

It's not just that.

Phoenix will have a hard time, trying to get rid of Luongo.

only way pho considers this is if Smith's career is done and I don't believe his injury is anywhere near that serious.

Makes no logical sense. I can see Phoenix going after Bernier though.

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

   ryan kesler is going to the chicago blackhawks ...       quote me on it

Not to mention actually paying him too.

Even if Phoenix was a better team I still think luongo says no. Too much baggage going there. Every year dealing with rumors about the team moving would suck.
