Pieces Vancouver could include:
Pieces Philadelphia could include:
Brayden Schenn (unlikely)
I think that the Canucks have a very solid forward group but we seem to have a lot of middling players and not enough star players that will help us get back to where we were in 2011. The Sedins have fallen off a little bit since then, not a lot but a bit. Kesler has been bitten with the injury bug. Malhotra was a completely different player in 2011 and we really miss him being where he was then. It took so much pressure off the top lines!
1st Round Pick 2013
I'm not sure if this is enough or what it would take to get this kind of deal done. I think that it is a fair deal
Sedin - Sedin - Kassian
Booth - Kesler - Voracek
Higgins - Couturier - Burrows
Raymond - Lapierre- Hansen
This gives our lineup tons of speed especially on the fourth line and 2nd lines. Voracek is a passing winger with size that should work well with Booth and Kes. This also allows Couturier and Burrows to play a shutdown role and allows us to roll all four lines.
I would keep Schneider and trade Luongo if I were talking about the future but our time to win is now, and I don't believe Schneider is a significant enough upgrade over Luongo in the present to warrant not trading him if we can get a significant return to bolster our offence.
