And why would you rather have the Tampa deal exactly? Ryan Johansen is loaded with potential, Steve Mason is young enough to turn around his developement and could still be a number 1 in the future, plus a first round pick in a deep draft is always good and gives you more options to make a deal at the draft.
Hedman is good, on the verge of really good, but the other trade benefits the Canucks better for the future.

Edit: I'm speaking of the return only in the proposal, not what pieces the Canucks are giving up.
Agreed, but I think that way we free up ballards salary and I prefer to keep booth. Its too early to give up on him
You're definitely right that the return on the cbj is better, I just like the cost of the tbay deal better. If either trade was to happen I would be ecstatic
