I like the same old speculated guys: Matthias and Bozak. Ott and Goc would fit nicely as well.

I really like Stastny, he would bring a lot of quality to our 3rd line, and he could also play with Kesler on the 2nd. The thing is his cap hit of 6.600M, we're already in a lot of trouble to meet next year's cap, he wouldn't help at that matter as he has one more year in his contract.


Is there a team in the NHL would be willing to trade for a player with a huge contract to try to win the Cup and when it's over use one of their "free" buyout? Beeing a GM if I had a chance to rent an interesting player like that, I would do it.

We have more than we think in common with ''Le Canadien de Montréal''

Both have logo shapped in ''C''

Canadien and Canucks mean the samething

We both hate the Boston Bruins now

Alain Vigneault coached both teams

Rogers Arena, Centre Bell, it's phones company

We are blue white and green they are blue white and red

Our #1 goalie is from Qc, their #1 goalie is from BC


But we have one important thing different and I hope it will change after the next season, we don't have Stanley Cup banner

throw kesler back down to the third and acquire ribeiro, and roll 2a and 2b. kesler takes the checking role and ribeiro brings scoring. its not likely we're going to be able to pick up a center who can check better than kesler, so why bother over paying for one? this way we have 3 scoring lines and 2 powerplay units. and we finally pick up someone who has skill that cant be taught.

sedin sedin burrows
booth/higgins ribeiro kassian
raymond kesler hansen
sestito lapierre weise

you can mix the wingers up kassian and burrow, raymond and higgins etc. and ribeiro centers the 2nd unit pp over higgins/schreoder or the hypothetical ott or vermette. use lapierre, higgin, kesler for pk

if you want to compete for the cup somehow trade garrison for boyle, we've been missing ehrhoff ever since he left and boyle can rush the puck up in a similar way.

if we're going to even consider having a chance against pittsburgh or chicago we have to be able to score like we used to.

What a great thread.

I am just gonna assume perfect as attainable.

Shaw Matthias

9 goals on Florida, doesn't necessarily play physical but has skill and would be a good line mate for Kassian to develop with.

Marcel Goc

Can battle hard and be a veteran presence at D we haven't had since Manny in his prime.

Luongo can get us both but we proabably have to send something florida's way.

If Gudbranson is available for Raymond and Corrado I'd do it too.

Vermette would be somewhat of an upgrade but is still a fringe second line centre, MG needs to make a splash, acquire a player that will push us to the next level and Stanley cup contention...every year leading up to the trade deadline there's speculation of players that will forsure be moved and in the end players get moved that know one thought were available.

Can't believe I'm saying this but Schroeder is rounding out into a nice 3rd line center option for us. He'll probably get dominated in the playoffs though which is why we need a huge-bodied 3rd line center to play with Schroeder and Raymond. The two speedsters can still create opportunities with each other while the center parks himself in front of the net and wins battles along the boards.

That lets us promote Hansen to the 2nd line or even 1st line where he really deserves to be. This sort of a lineup would go deep in the playoffs:

Sedin - Sedin - Kassian
Burrows - Kesler - Hansen
Raymond - x - Schroeder
Higgins - Lapierre - Sestito/Weise
