Nashville is in need of a scoring winger because of the injury to Hornqvist, and the Canucks could use a big young centerman. Don't flame, just suggest ways to improve the trade.

To NSH:
Raymond
Schroeder
2013 2nd Rounder

To VAN:
Colin Wilson
2013 5th Rounder

This is assuming Raymond can keep his current play up, increasing his trade value. Also Nashville is in a slump as of right now.

Vancouver Lineup: (With Kesler and Booth):

Sedin-Sedin-Kassian
Booth-Kesler-Burrows
Higgins-Wilson-Hansen
Malhotra-Lappiere-Weise

Bieksa-Hamhuis
Edler-Bieksa
Tanev-Ballard

Schneider
Luongo

Nashville Lineup (Once Hornqvist gets back):
Kostitsyn-Fisher-Erat
Raymond-Legwand-Hornqvist
Yip-Gaustad-Spaling
Bourque-Smith-Halishuk

Weber-Josi
Klein-Hannan
Ellis-Gill

RInne
Mason

EDIT: Have no clue what Nashvilles line up is, jsut kinda pieced it together form their roster...

Hahaha, but I can see Raymond getting 30 goals, which is more than any player on Nashville last year.

If Raymond plays in 70+ games next year, and doesn't score 28+ goals, then I will eat some of the cat gut leather off my old lacrosse stick.

I think Wilson would be a great addition to our third line. We will have a checking fourth line in Malhotra-Lapierre-Weise

I agree that Raymond needs a new fresh start, but I don't think he would want to play under Nashville's defensive system.

Well it's a good thing Raymond doesn't have a choice where he's playing isn't it.

Colin Wilson is a scoring winger. Why are they trading him for Raymond?

This deal just seems superfluous.

I think we overpay too.

I'd do it.
Wilson can play centre or the wing, so he could play 2nd line centre while Kes is out, then either move to the wing or play on the 3rd line once he comes back.
He's got good offensive potential and is very strong on and off the puck. Should be a very good second line player in his prime.
Of course that being said, I don't think Nashville would do it.

While I don't mind Colin Wilson, why do we give up so much for him? Both Schroeder and Raymond, and we give them a 2nd for their 5th? How is this a good deal for us, especially when we have plenty of young centers coming up in the next few years. Once Kesler's back, we'll be ok for centers, with Manny and Lappy in the bottom 6 and Kesler and Henrik in the top 6, and guys like Burrows and Higgins able to fill in as well as Schroeder now (and Ebbett I guess too).

Fair enough. I think Wilson has a lot of upside to him. And he could easily be our second line center, maybe even first line center, once the Sedins retire. And we do really only have Schroeder and Gaunce down the middle, for prospects. I think Wilson is a much better upgrade on Schroeder. If this trade were to happen, and once the Sedins retire, we will have Kesler, Wilson, Gaunce, Lapierre, and maybe a UFA for centers. And Wilson can also step in on the wing, as well. IMO this trade improves us now, and the future. Then in the Luongo trade, if we were able to get a high end prospect winger, and a pick. Then our future will be brighter than what we're currently looking at.

We already have a lack of scoring with the absence of Kesler and Booth, we can't afford to take away more of our offence. I see this trade as a big downgrade overall.

And to those still saying Raymond sucks, watch him play without a bias, since he's been playing solid all season.

i think a good spot for luongo would be phoenix, im sure he would sell some tickets and he obviously likes hot places(florida) phoenix's goaltending is really bad, both their goalies are doing terribly and aren't getting any better.

Luongo, Schroeder, for mike smith/La Barbera, Korpikoski/bissonette, hanzal

So phoenix gets a good goalie and we get a pretty crapty goalie, but atleast they're inexpensive at 2m or 1.5m. They both have only 1 year left and im sure by next year Lack will be ready. We obviously need to take one to give them room for luongo, and for canucks to have a backup. Korpikoski/bissonette is the real value of the trade- both great prospects, young, playing well. And Hanzal fits that 3rd line center spot perfectly. He's 6"6, 240, and a great checker. He can score some points shown by last years playoffs. To fill in that void we trade Schroeder, hes good but we dont need him if we have hanzal, and hes small and canucks are trying to get big
