Hopefully if Washington is his destination, we get some of (NOT ALL) of the following players.

Kuznetsov/Forsberg/Brouwer/Johansson/Carlson/Alzner.

Any of those players would be nice to acquire through trade for Luo. Of course we need a back up goalie as well. Wonder if a trade would include Holtby or Neuvirth?

Not a chance would I want that contract for what I would cost to acquire it. Sure he's good when he wants to be but he is very one dimensional and if he's not scoring 60 goals every year he's not worth it.

I'd have no problem trading huge package for Crosby or Malkin, but hell no for ovi. I just don't trust him to put up 60 goals a year.

If im MG, i'd be targeting their best prospect Evgeny Kuznetsov, he's gonna be the next Russian superstar. And with a name like "Evgeny" you know he will be a star :P

I don't understand why people want D-men or borderline top-6 players in return for Lu. The Canucks D is deep, and we have way too many borderline top-6ers (Raymond, Booth, Kassian, Schroeder). If we're trying to win a cup in the next couple years, I think we need a bonafide top-6 winger. IMO nothing else is really worth losing a star goalie for. If we can't get that in return for Luongo, maybe we should look at moving Schneider?

I know some people will say we should be looking for quality prospects here, but we're trying to follow the Detroit model, which is based on good drafting - NOT shipping off star players for unproven prospects.

Tbh: Schneider would be the more logical person to trade, he would bring in more of a return for a "win now" team.

Crosby, Malkin, Ovechkin, Letang, and Carlson for Luongo, Schneider, Kassian, Ballard, and Raymond.

You heard it here first.

why would he have more value in a trade?

I guess the theory is that Schneider is younger + has a more manageable contract than Luongo does. But really I would be okay with trading either goalie as long as the return is good.

I don't want Kuznetsov on the Canucks though. Who knows if he'll actually come to play in the NHL..

Troy Brouwer will play a big role in the bottom 9 and he's from Vancouver, so I would love to have him. Tom Wilson/Marcus Johanssen as a big power prospect would be great as well. I'm not denying that Kuznetsov will be good, but Tom Wilson or Marcus Johanssen might be our best bet.

Forsberg isn't a big player. He's a small skilled winger. So he doesn't really help with size.

If we want a skilled winger, Kuznetsov is their most elite forward prospect. If we want a two way forward, Johanssen is their best young two way forward.

On D, if we could get Carlsson from him, that would be unreal. Everyone on here seemed to clamour over Jake Gardiner, well Carlsson is way better than Gardiner. He could be a future top 4 for us. He would allow us to trade Ballard in the offseason.

I like Brouwer aswell, but we already have Higgins and Hansen on the 3rd line, we dont need anymore 3rd liners unless Higgins is on the way out.

Tom Wilson would be nice too, he's a RW and we desperately need RWingers :P

Brouwer's cap hit will be 3.666M next season Liach's is 4.5M and Ward's is 3M and with the cap going down and these guys really only being 3rd liners I doubt we will trade for any of them

Who knows, maybe Higgins or Hansen goes the other way? Not that I would want that, but Gillis isn't afraid to make the big trade.

Starts with Brouwer and one of their top young players (Orlov, Carlsson, Johanssen, Forsberg, Kuznetsov). And throw in a pick.
