One Canucks trade you'd take back/redo.

Pretty straight forward. Mine would be the Neely trade by obvious choice, but the Adams for Russ Courtnall trade. Courtnall bombed, and Adams was one of the hearts of the team, and we lost him. Not just that, but he was decent in Dallas too.

Just trades? If it was all deals, I would undo the Messier signing.

linden should've never left the team.

Of all time: Neely

From the time I became a Canucks fan to now: Grabner for Ballard. Imagine our prospect pool if we had Howden/Kuznetzov/Etem in it

More recently, probably the Keith Ballard trade.

Gave up our first + Grabner (Bernier too, but not much of a loss)

Players that were still available at pick #25:

- Evgeny Kuznetsov

- Quinton Howden

- Emerson Etem

Neely, Hands down. Anyone who says the Hodgson trade doesn't have their brain turned on. Hodgson may turn out to be a star, but not a 50-goals-in-less-than-50-games kinda guy.

Im more worried about what is going to happen rather then what has happened.

All this thread did for me was piss me off

Wise words Son Goku ;)

I wasn't into hockey enough back in the Neely trade days to remember it much. Trading Willie Mitchell was probably a bad idea though. We could've used him big time in the last few years.

other than the big ones already mentioned (Neely, Ballard, Gelinas/McLean, Linden, etc.)...

all of the trades we made at the 2006 deadline. Keith Carney, Eric Weinrich, Mika Noronen and Sean Brown. Holy crap they were terrible, and the team just nosedived after that anyway. I know all we gave up were draft picks and low-end prospects, but yikes, even one of those might've turned into something better down the road than those four.

Except they never traded Willie. He just never re-signed with the team after his contract was up and chose to sign in L.A. (for more money than the Canucks were offering) instead.
