In 3 years time if we don't trade away our prospects I see our roster looking something like this though line ups given don't reflect actual lineup.

Sedin Sedin Burr
Jensen Kesler Shredder
Hansen Gaunce Kassian
Plug Max Lap Plug No offence to Patti and Weise as I'm sure in 3 years they will have signed for more money elsewhere. If not great there still youngish.

So question is do the Canucks Resign Higgins and Raymond and hope to move Booth or do they keep Booth and let Higgy and May Ray walk the the end of the season? What gives our prospects the best opportunity going forward to have a smooth transition to the Biggs?

For Defence
Ballard (love the guy he's been great this season too) will be moved or bought out hopefully moved so he doesn't have a buyout on his resume.

Edler Tanev
Ham Juice
Garri Corrado or K Con....

Correct me if I'm wrong but in 3 years time Ballard's, Raymond's, Higgins and Booth's contract will be up...so shouldn't this discussion be about who we will keep? and not who we will need to move?

Yes the discussion put forward was....... What decisions do we make in the next 3 years to get there and have the smoothest transition? Decisions that need to be made now or in the near future this season or next.

in 3 years time we will have more prospects and possibly have signed FA that would change they dynamic of this team. its foolish to try and figure out who to keep 3 years down the road. that being said i would sign Booth to a lesser contract. maybe 2mill per year. hes fast, can score and he can hit. plus is Kesler and Booth develop good chemistry they can be very effective.

Booth is at least a 3.5 million dollar forward to some team.
