IMO trading top prospects is what got us into this mess in the first place. This is not the answer.

To me there is not much we can do now Gillis already crapped the bed.

Time to start stocking up again on top prospects if anything.

If you like looking at statistics to determine who's better, you're just a casual fan.

2.41 season GAA isn't very impressive. Let's not get into playoffs and his SV%.

Cory Schneider is the next Patrick Roy.

Without an idea of what they'd bring back, none of them. I could say yes to Ben Hutton, but then find out what the other team wanted to trade was Tim Thomas and his suspended contract. I could say no to Jensen, but then find out the other team wanted to trade Adam Larsson. Each is situationally relevant.

Schroeder is a valuable trade chip and could probably be a top 6 guy on another team but id rather trade him because of his lack of size

- Nicklas Jensen
- Jordan Schroeder
- Brendan Gaunce
- Frank Corrad

and I'd add Billy Sweatt. He has something about him and I would like us to give him a decent run.

Having said that we have quite a few roster players I would part with before prospects.

Honestly, if we REALLY crap the bed this year.......and who is to say we won't, I seriously doubt we should leave our draft picking in the hands of MG and his "scouts" (they are not worthy of the name) based on past history.

all the rest will get us scrubs....scrubs like pahlsson, who went get us anywhere near the cup. If we want a difference maker were gonna have to trade 1 of the "untouchables"


What we need to do is re-stock the pool and bring in some younger players without impacting the squad to much. Players like booth could fetch a decent return for some younger players who can then develop in the system while taking back say a player to plug the hole.

Sometime you have to trade away the current for the future, but if you go for broke and fail, then you have nothing and are left with nothing and it will take a long time to recover.

Quite obvious this Canuck team needs a shakeup and that a piece is missing in our lineup. It's also quite obvious that there is no goalie market out for Schneids or Lu. Our other trade-able assets wont fetch us enough, guys like Booth, Ballard, Raymond.

Having said that, we have some prospects that could garner some interest. Obviously the higher the prospect , the better the return What is your level of comfort in trading the future for the present. Who on this list can you trade.

Cup now, re-fill the cupboard later is my stance! If any of these guys can get us that bonofide sniper and secondary scorer we desperately need then im willing to trade him, even if its Jensen. Look at teams like the Oilers and Jackets who have been getting 1st over picks, they are nowhere near the cup. You want a cupboard full of top prospects or a cupboard full of Stanley Cups?? Dont be shocked if Gillis moves the top guys on this list at the deadline.



How much can these guys get in return? None are proven it will be a packaged deal if anything.

Barring The Sedins who should retire here, any player should be available for the right deal.

If Crosby or Weber became available via trade, you would at least have to entertain the initial asking price.

Trading our prospects/ picks is the reason our hands are tied now and why MG has so many tough calls to make this offseason with our underachieving roster. We gave away Grabner and our 2010 first which could've potentially gotten us a very solid prospect (Quinton Howden, Brock Nelson, Justin Faulk, Emerson Etem, Charlie Coyle to name a few) for a 4.2 cap hit that sits in our press box and has us against the cap and the organization mishandled Hodgson who would be making more of an impact this year offensively for our team when we finally really need it, as opposed to Kassian, just to list the two most obvious gaffes. I just hope when we do move a goaltender the return makes up for the lost young talent we could've had on our roster right now so we have a bit of a future to look forward to when this heartless core of players we have is slowly dismantled in the next few years.

Nicklas Jensen


The highlighted ones can be thrown in as they will need to be elsewhere to succeed but other teams may want them put in to make a trade for a depth forward or D or maybe 2 or 3 of them put in for a good third line center or 4/5 D man
The non-highlighted ones would like to keep or only put in a trade to get a top 6 forward or top 4 dman now

And i would like to hear Gillis come out and say no one is safe in the organization except for the ones with No Trade in their contracts of course as he would not want to over rock thar boat ATTENTION EDLER

Maybe this would make the players play with a sense of urgency to stay here in the best city in the world

Anyone but Jensen, Gaunce, and Lack.

Under the *(reasonably) worse case scenario*:
- Jensen (offensive power/sniper; 3rd line)
- Gaunce (defensive two-way forward; on 3rd/4th line)
- Lack (backup NHL goaltender, or career AHL starter)

That said, I am confident Gaunce is capable of a centering the third line, and that Jensen will be an offensive contributor to some degree. That said, our other prospects incl. Schroeder aren't terrible, but definitely not 'invaluable' or must-keeps.

Ill put it this way I wouldn't trade Jensen, Corrodo, Lack or Gaunce. As I feel they all have something to add to this team. And I would add Schredder to the list if Raymond walks. With the Sedin's there is only room for one more small skill player in the top 6. I don't see Schredder ever being an Ideal 3/4 line player.

Booth/Jensen Kesler Schredder
Higgins Gaunce Kass
Plug Maxlap Hansen
I feel is the best future option for a bottom 9 unless a big move is made. ( personally I kinda hope a big move is made because there are better bottom 9's in the league.) If Schredder is part of a deal that makes us better up the middle I'm for it. Though I am a big fan of his. Even if he pans out as a legit top 6 player which I believe he will what he add's the the Canuck's top 6 might not be ideal as he will always need to be on the ice with skilled PF wingers to be effective, which are hard to come by. So for me it's Raymond or Schredder not both and though I love Schredder, Mayray I feel has the better career potential. ( I'm sure ill get flamed for that)

I guess it all depends on who you're getting back. If it's someone like a Corey Perry and if he is willing to sign an extension here, I'd be willing to trade anybody on that list. If you're getting a lesser player, then it's everybody except Jensen and Gaunce.

If you don't trade Jensen or Gaunce, you aren't getting anyone of consequence back. You have to give up value to get it in return, and even then sometimes you don't, considering how thoroughly Gillis has gotten fleeced in his last few trades. Mike Milbury is no longer an NHL GM.

Personally I want to see Nicklas Jensen in the NHL right now. There's no way he'd be worse than Zack Kassian.

These are guys who have not played a game in the NHL, and it's not like they are grade A blue chips. Why are they untouchable? If we can get equal value in return, why not?



We already have enough off them equals playing for the Canucks.

man our prospects pool is slim. I would not trade Jensen, Corrado, Lack not this season, and Gaunce. Everyone else is fair game altho everyone else is not exactly the type of prospect you'd expect to get much of a return for.

Dp you really think we have a prospect that could bring the return required to make a difference to their play? We have pieces on the Canucks roster that are expendable. Like with the play of late, almost the entire defensive corps.
