If you could reverse one Canucks trade, which would it be..........

91 posts in this topic

OK, the obvious one is out (Neely for Pederson+)..............

Of the rest (during my lifetime at least), the three that come to mind for me are.........

Rick Vaive and Bill Derlego for Tiger Williams and Jerry Butler (I think this was the deal).

Bure for Jovo, Gagner and ???? was it Morrison?

Kassian for Hodgson

If you can think of one better than the three above, please let me know and add it to the list.

Of the three above, I would give us back Cody............5 goals, 5 assists in 10 games...........he'd be our leading scorer right now

Everyone's already beaten the cody kassian trade to death. The trade was good for both teams, simple as, and it really shouldn't even be close to top three trades that the canucks would want to reverse.

It'd be the Ballard trade for me. I don't mind Ballard but ~4 million is too much to pay for a third pairing defenseman. This is all in hindsight of course. At the time of the trade we hadn't signed Hamhuis yet so Ballard was meant to be a top 4 D-man.

+1 post...GREAT Topic.

For me it would be the Ballard trade. I would want a better return for Grabner. Don't get me wrong Ballard is playing well, but we could have gotten a better return.

Cam "freakin" Neely.

Neely trade for Vancouver is worst than the Kessel trade for Toronto.

The Package: Zack Kassian vs. Nail Yakupov

620-kassian-yakupov-thumb-620xauto-270975.jpgThe Vancouver Canucks and Edmonton Oilers must be pleased with how young players Zack Kassian, left, and Nail Yakupov, right, have started the 2013 season. (Photos courtesy The Canadian Press)

We at CBCSports.ca will be keeping an eye on the next generation of NHL stars on Canada's seven clubs, whether they're in the NHL or working on the "farm" in the AHL.

We'll periodically check in with these players throughout the 2012-13 season, no matter what league they'll be lacing up their skates in. Today, we check in with the Vancouver Canucks' Zack Kassian and the Edmonton Oilers' Nail Yakupov, who have both impressed thus far in this lockout-shortened season.

Tale of the tape

Zack Kassian Nail Yakupov

6' 3" Height 5' 11"

214 lbs. Weight 185 lbs.

22 Age 19

13th in 2009 Drafted 1st in 2012

5 Goals 5

1 Assists 1

12 PIM 2

For two players with vastly different skill sets, Nail Yakupov and Zack Kassian have looked quite similar this season.

Sure, the rough-as-sandpaper Kassian has had his share of fisticuffs eight games into the season, including this tilt against Oilers tough-guy Ben Eager where Kassian tried to inject some life into his team and the crowd:

Yakupov has also stepped up to correct a perceived slight against his teammates, going after Matt Duchene after the Avs' forward shot the puck at the Oilers' net after the period had ended on Saturday.

While the Oilers forward's goal celebrations soured some pundits, he has found the back of the net five times and added an assist -- immediate production from last year's first overall draft pick, and plenty of highlight-reel fodder from his superhuman hand-eye coordination:

So what's Kassian done? Oh, he's just the Canucks' leading goal scorer.

Paired with the Sedin twins on the first line, and seeing a decent amount of time on the power play, the Windsor, Ont., native has the same offensive output as Yakupov -- five goals and one helper, including this tally showcasing his soft hands in the roughest part of the ice:

With the Canucks in Edmonton on Monday night, the two will share the ice... but who do you think makes the bigger impact?

Neely trade- this thread does not reallly deserve to even hold a discussion, the Neely trade which also brought them Lucic, which brought them the cup, so this is the only answer to a very unoriginal question.

I have to wait to see where Lu goes and what we get...but otherwise...The Bure trade was the one that Hurt us the most.

Why is the Neely trade out? I mean, that's like saying "What's 2 + 2? And 4 is out." I get the feeling this is meant to be another "Why did we trade Cody?" thread, but in (a very flimsy) disguise.

OT: reverse the Neely trade. There is literally no other option. You may have different opinions; those opinions are wrong. We traded away a future Hall of Famer and got something between "bugger" and "all" in return.

Would he somehow have Vanek on his wing here as well?

Grabner and 1st for Ballard.

I don't like the Ballard deal. NOT that I miss Grabner but I think with the signing of Hamhuis, Ballard turned out to be expendable and a 5-6th dman. We could have gotten more for grabner and a 1st (howden) He is doing pretty well I might add, looks to be developing into a 2nd line winger.

Naslund and Stojanov.

Naslund sucks and Stojanov would have challenged Gretzky for every NHL record he set if he stayed in Vancouver.

...... How is my King of the BS impersonation?

The Neely trade.

But if it's got to be a modern trade it would be the Ballard trade.
