A player that wont be a legitimate (if he ever becomes one) difference to the Canucks for another 3-5 years for A proven player that can help the Canucks win NOW???

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

No. Why would we trade our best prospect when our pool is already as dry as it is?

In my eyes drouin is overrated he can score in the qmjhl but did nothing in last two gold medal games that canada lost. Fox will be better pro than him talk to me in five yrs


   ryan kesler is going to the chicago blackhawks ...       quote me on it

Do you think Dallas regrets trading away Iginla?

If it's the right move, I would trade anybody.

He is our online blue chip prospect, and he has the highest ceiling of all of our prospects, so I would rather keep him.

Pavelski is about the only real player that the Canucks could maybe make a trade for, the rest no. Btw go to HF boards and read the thread about 0'Reilys old man going full Lindos you might want to reconsider.

Who cares about our prospect pool, whats the point of it? so that we can float in mediocrity and 2nd round exits for the next 10 years??? those prospects are suppose to help us win a cup in 7 years, or we can trade them and they can help us win a cup now when we have legitimate top flight world class players on our team

By all Reports from Canes fans, Semin is far from what you are saying. More blown up by the media and he is playing extremely well from all the games I have watched. He back checks hard.

I would do it for Semin or Kane. Everyone else on that list is meh.

Canes wouldn't look to move him just bc they will lose him for nothing...they gained him for nothing either...only on CDC will there be great assumptions. Ahhh yes.

The key difference is that Sopel can fill in for Seabrook and Campbell just fine. Bieksa, he is garbage so in that sense he is like the worst defenseman in the league.


When Cody (Hodgson) gets older, he might be better than Datsyuk.


Let's not push this guy (Kassian). He's still immature, and if he fails on the 2nd line it's because he isn't ready. Some guys really need years to develop, it's how well and how fast players adapt to the game. In my opinion, I'd rather have Horvat getting 2nd line minutes. He will start off on the 3rd line next season but I see him making the transition, being a great compliment to whoever plays his wings.

At this point, I don't see Kassian fitting in to any role other than a 3rd. If players like Kassian start getting 2nd line minutes then we just stay inconsistent as a team.


The idiocy on CDC....

Those players are fair value, if you are looking for the next tier, which is the superstars then we are certainly going to have to give up more than David Booth coming off injury and a late 1st round draft pick

We dont have any great needs???? to be honest with you i think this is still the same team that we've put out there there last 3-4 years...no legitimate secondary scoring, we are relying for our blue liners to score every night...

We need a playmaker/ sniper to play with Kesler plus a legit 4th line penalty kill type of player to play over Weise or Volps....someone like like Brandon Prust. obvs not Prust tho cuz MTL loves him

We will most likely get one from a goalie trade.

Sure, anyone's tradeable for the right price. But O'Reilly? Really? A player that has never scored even 60 points in the league but won't sign for less than Sedin money and demands to be made captain? He can stay in the KHL as far as I'm concerned. As for the rest of the crew you mentioned, no chance that Calgary trades Iginla to the Canucks, especially not for Jensen. Pominville is not getting traded, neither is Marleau. I'd say Kane would be the best option on your list, and I'll throw in T.J. Oshie in it too. For a guy who is currently nothing more than potential, Kane or Oshie would be a good trade.

I think it was Charles Montgomery Burns who said it the best: "I would trade it all for just a little more"

Wise words if you ask me.

I dont buy the crap ur selling.....Flames wont trade Iginla to the Canucks or to any western rivals?? why not??? You think Iginla will haunt the flames from his retirement home 2 years from now?? You think the Flames would turn it down if the Oilers offered Taylor Hall or RNH???...just like business world, everyone and anyone can be bought. Flames will take the best possible offer even if it comes from the Canucks.


and why exactly would the Blues trade Oshie? Him and Tarasenko and Piets and Shattenkirk are the only guys i see that the franchise can build around..

Chris Stewart, now theres a guy that will get moved once or twice more in his career

David Perron and Jaden Schwartz?????????? Backes is only 29, Jake Allen is looking promising and Halak is only 27.
They have many guys to build around upfront, on defense and in net.

Why would you trade anything with upside on an entry level contract for anything less than something with upside on a entry level contract.

Risk reward

It doesn't cost us to develop him but it may cost us to trade him.

And why is this in Canucks talk and even more shocking why hasn't elvis15 told you so

We need players on ELC's to help us fit under cap. He could be that young stud to help bring us the cup (ex. Tyler Seguin).

I don't think Jensen will be moved, but I do think Evander Kane is movable on your list.

The Peg has a solid top 4 (Byfuglien, Enstrom, Bogosian, and Trouba***in 1-2 years)
and fast, young forwards (Little, Wellwood, Wheeler, Ladd, and Scheifele in a couple years as well)

I think a package of Booth (PWF) and Ballard (Bottom pair, character player) and a 1st rd pick could get Kane back in BC
I think that package is good for WPG, they gain another good top 6 player, a character D-man, and a pick to add to their decimated prospect pool courtesy of their days in Atlanta.

We gain a scrappy top 6 sniper, who's not afraid to drop the gloves AND he's a hometown kid to boot!!

Sedin-Sedin-Burrows
Kane-Kesler-Kassian
Raymond-Schroeder-Hansen
Higgins-Lapierre-Volpatti

Now that's one strong forward group!!! Although I think the 2nd line would need a nickname right away.....the KKK line doesn't really have a good ring to it....

No I would keep him, the only way to win in the short and long term is have young player (that are paid less) come up and make an impact. In a cap world you need good rookies in your system.
