who do the canucks have to trade?

55 posts in this topic

Cory Schneider, Roberto Luongo, David Booth, HIggins, Raymond, Max Lappiere, Andrew Alberts to name a few players that are movable. Lemme add NIcklas Jensen, Jordan Schroeder, Rodin are probably movable, if Gillis is looking at a MIke Richards or a Jeff Carter type of trade. He will be all over that.

yete...waiting for you to respond to some of these comments. It's not appropriate to troll with new threads in a post and run deal.

We seem to like to trade our prospects or 1st round picks. Maybe if MG could draft better we wouldn't be in this position..

But it is what it is. We have Booth and Ballard to trade, and some minor prospects. Goalie trade too. There is a market, for Cory anyway. Unless we wanna trade Lu to the leafs, MG has to trade Cory while he still can. Don't make the same mistake you made in 2011 MG

I'll go through the roster for you...

None of the Sedins or Burrows are at all likely so we can just shuffle on by them. Extremely low likelihood of trade.

Higgins, if I'm GMMG, I hang on to barring any HUGE returns (over-payment or as part of a bigger package with a returning bonafide top 6F/ top 2D). Low to moderate likelihood.

Kesler is injured and I believe has NTC. Extremely low.

Raymond is actually prime trade bate. Having a pretty good "comeback" season, has great speed and shot, his value's up and we're not likely to resign him this summer. He'd be a good rental for a team with the possibility of re-signing him. Buy low, sell high. Moderate to high likelihood.

Booth's contract and current point production has his trade value relatively low at the moment. That and that he's got good playoff tools mean the likelihood of trading him are low IMO.

Hansen is pretty much the same boat as Higgins. He's the type of player you want around. Good depth guy, built for the playoffs at good value. Of course those things also make them attractive to other teams... Unless there's an over-payment/bigger package, he's low-moderate.

Kassian will be low likelihood. He'll be aloud to mature and see what he can do over the next few seasons, again barring any over-payments.

That pretty much leaves the fourth line. None of whom are remotely untouchable but they also offer little in the way of return. As such they'd fall in the low-moderate as well.

As for the D...

Hamhuis, Bieksa and Garrison aren't going anywhere.

Edler, while his value's arguably, currently down GM's know his capabilities. Don't kid yourselves that he wouldn't be sought after or offer a good return. That said, we drafted him and generally speaking you retain those guys if you can. He'd be in the low moderate category as well IMO. Unless he offers us a serious upgrade at forward (think 2C that's better than Kesler) or as part of a package to land a true #1 D he's not likely moving.

Tanev would also be low to moderate as well. The guy's exceeded anyone's expectations and is likely to be a stable of our blue line for years. He's cheap and good. Again, unless the return is world's better he's unlikely to be moved.

Ballard we'll put in the moderate, maybe high likelihood category. He should almost be traded for his own good just so he gets a chance to play. That said, he's good insurance and while his trade value would likely be somewhat dubious he has had a pretty good bounce back year and does hold some value. His contract will be a stumbling block however.

The rest of the D are similar to the fourth line, not untouchable but you need them for depth so unless you're improving, why move them for the low value they represent?

Luongo moderate to high...do I really need to explain this?

Schneider moderate. The Canucks want to keep him but for the same reasons they do, he arguably holds more trade value. He also doesn't have an NTC complicating things up. They'll TRY to retain him and move Lu but don't be entirely shocked if GMMG gets an offer too good to refuse, he'll pull the trigger.

Then there's pretty much anyone on the Wolves. Jensen is likely the only guy who'd be low risk there as I think they REALLY want to see what he can do the next few seasons.

Must we have the word TROLL coming up just because someone makes a valid but controversial point. Jeez just about every worthwhile thread is a troll thread if that's the case Deb. This place would be damn near a "dead zone" if people didn't proffer their own but sometimes slightly left field opinions.

Does it make you feel like a big boy talking to a mod like this? She said nothing about trolling or trolls... all that was said was encouragement to respond to posts. Yete makes several posts a week out of "left field" and they are mostly locked due to lack of content or response. Don't think this was called for.

The real trolling is some of the smart ass replies.

To which one are you referring? All the replies seem to be on par with the lack of substance in the original post. If you leave things up to interpretation, then are you not then asking for these replies?

Anyway to the topic. Yes I think the OP has a point. In a trade it is not often you enter into it with your key players so that takes the Twins, Kes, Burrows, Hamhuis, Tanev, (because he is constantly improving) and Bieksa (would anyone dare say he was not key to our success after our recent run while he was injure?) out of the picture.

Now that leaves Burrows, Edler, Garrison, Ballard, Raymond, Booth, Kassian, Lapierre, Weise, Sestito Hansen and Higgins.

Out of that group only Ballard (when he was being picked) Raymond (UFA) and Hansen have any real form this season.

Really? So Higgans and Hansen are under-achieving this year you would say? I think Ballard has improved in trade value, Kassian is getting an opportunity to learn the NHL style. Power-forwards take the most time to develop which he is doing and I doubt his trade value has decreased. I could continue on with the others but I think you get the point.

So do you trade players who are NOT letting us down and get left with the "strugglers" Way to weaken your team.

Or do you trade guys who you have just given stupid contracts to and watch just how stupid they were by getting offered next to damn all back. Edler, Garrison,...........Booth and Ballard (came with big contracts)

Edler is having his first off year, Garri is coming along nicely, Booth has been one of best forwards in the last 3-5 games. Ballard plays good against 3rd and 4th lines only it seems.

That leaves us with the dregs and the inconsistent. Weise, Lapierre, Alberts, Barker, Sestito, and Higgins (UFA). Seriously what would we get for them.

Higgans? Really? I think he is untradeable only cause he is so useful to our team.Do you watch the games or listen to them on the radio? Cause no one takes a puck off the boards on this TEAM as good as Higgans. Too early to jump all over Sestito, Lapierre has been the whipping boy this year and will find his touch when Kesler returns and his line can be re-united.

At the end of the day we will have to "give-up" more bodies/trade to get back something good. If we can do it, fine but which GM's out there share MG's judgement? Fewer and fewer I'd say.

PS one of the goalies is a "given" and for me it is and always has been Cory.
