What would a Schneider+ hodgson+grabner+1st have returned

Recommended Posts

Depends when they were traded. The Grabner trade was just awful timing. Gillis goes and trades him just before his breakout season so the value he got out of Grabner was very low. If he had waited to let Grabner play a season and show his abilities his trade value would have been a lot better.

Grabner has already stated that one of the main reasons for his breakout season was because he was waived by Florida and he knew that he had to work harder to stay in the NHL. I don't know if he would have had a 30+ goal season with the Canucks if we kept him....

Just because a player is putting numbers up on a crappy non-playoff team... it doesn't mean they would do the same on a good team. Booth and Ballard are prime examples coming the other way.

It makes a big difference when you are getting prime quality minutes because no one else on your team can play the game.

A starting number one goaltender, a potential first line center currently at almost a ppg pace, a solid 20-30+ goal scoring second line winger, and a first round pick?

You would get a lot.

However we would be much better today, and wouldnt think of trading them. (Other than Schneider, because it's either Luongo, or Schneider, just deal whoever makes your team better)

I don't understand the point of making threads like this one. Hodgson and Grabner were not a fit here at the time of their transactions out of VanCity. To ask, "What if..." at this stage is totally moot. It's already been said a million times in a million threads... Hodgson wanted out and Grabner didn't fit where his skill set dictated.

It's easy to say that we got fleeced in these transactions, but, once again, it's all hindsight. Grabner and Hodgson are performing in their current situations because they are playing the roles they need to be successful. Grabner wasn't going to be a 1/2 winger here and Hodgson wasn't going to be a 1/2 centre. They are now playing those roles with weak clubs, hence their success based on increased minutes ES, PP and PK.

Speculate all you want, folks, but, at the time, neither one of these players fit into the Canuck's roster in a role to make them successful and to highlight their skill set.

As for Schneider, he is our #1 goalie, like it or not. What could he bring in a trade? It all depends on what the other team's needs are.

Just imagine the return we could of gotten for Luongo/Schneider + Hodgson.

Just because a player asks for a trade doesn't mean you trade him right away, especially when you know you need to move a goalie and could package them up.

Sorry but Gillis is a tool as is AV and they're ruining this team imo.
