in other words would you trade potential for actual? the future for the present?
Canucks still need that game changer, who will put us over the hump and bring the Cup home to Vancouver. However to attain this game changer it will take a roster player and our top prospect.
So are you willing to part with David Booth or Raymond + Nicklas Jensen for 1 of these players...other suggestions of players are welcome
My suggestions for players to target are:
Ryan Oreily- insane talent. 2 strides and he can catch up to anyone on the backcheck. Will be better than Kesler
Evander Kane- its not an if but a when this guy will leave the PEG. he isnt a fit with that community. Jets will look for a big return tho. we would have to add from Booth and Jensen..He makes Kesler money for 7 more years
Jarome Iginla- has 1 last good playoff push left in his tank. Would look ridiculous beside the twins
Jason Pomminville or Drew Stafford to a lesser extent. Pomminville is a game changing sniper.
Marleau or Pavelski if Sharks decide to blow it up.
Martin Hanzal (soooooo under-rated because he plays in PHX)
Brandon Dubinsky- captain material, would go through a wall for his team mates. Playoff warrior type of player
Alexander Semin - cancer in the lockeroom but unquestionable talent. and with the leaders in our room i feel like he would be a decent fit. Carolina might look to move him if they are out of the playoff push rather than risking of losing him for nothing in the off season,.
PS please note this is not a trade proposal topic, im just curious to see how far Canuck fans are willing to let go to get a game changer. because Raymond and Ballard + a 2nd wont get us a sniff of the cup
