Look at what Pittsburgh has done. Reason being is the cap comes down next year, hence why Pens were very aggressive in acquiring Iginla, Morrow and Murray. Granted Canucks don't have the assets it would take to do what Pens did. The argument can be made not to mortgage the future, but what future do we have? Aside from Jensen, we have nothing in the way of good prospects. Canucks window for winning is closing. I fully expect all Gillis will do at most is acquire a 3rd line Center and that will be it.

Yeah I'm pretty sure we can get Toews, Alfredsson, and Rick Nash for Alberts, Luongo, and Raymond.

Maybe not "all in", but if the right deal is there, you make it.

If Lui gets moved, Im sure whomever is in on him, waits untill the last minute to see if Gillis really just wants to dump him....

While the rumor of Nonis' offer of a 2nd rounder + a "C" level prospect is out there, Im sure the Canucks can squeeze a bit more than that, but will likley have to also wait till the last minute before seeing how much teams really want Lui.

Dont really think it goes much more "all in" than that..... possibly a few picks for the right player... Ott and Ribeiro would be nice fits here imo.

Yeah we just magically go all in and acquire all the players we need right?

CDC you never cease to amaze me in thinking you can do a GMs job.

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.

We can't go all in we don't have a great shot this year it would be a fails attempt that would cost us. I do hope MG gets off his and makes a good trade that will help us, I'm sick of the typical MG.

Is he still viewed as a prospect? No disrespect to him. Assumed he was a regular on the Canucks now.

I'll be happy if we can get Steve Ott. No point in going all-in this year when the Penguins have already done it.

We should do our best to acquire some depth parts (preferably a center) but we dont want to wreck our future just to have a slightly better chance to win this year.

Besides a 3rd line Center, they also need a Sniper. Canucks are so lackluster and aren't generating much offence or scoring many goals. There's been the argument that the Canucks are playing down to other teams level, but reality is they've been playing like this the whole shortened season. If Gillis does next to nothing at the deadline, which is expected then it will be another 1st round playoff exit and short series at that.

So, 2 potentially good prospects? What a future.

Something the Canucks have never done well at all. When they luck out on drafting a good player like Hodgson, they turn around and ship him out in a mediocre trade and return at best.

Is Lack considered a prospect? He's nearly NHL ready. If this mess with Luongo ever gets resolved, Lack will backup Schneider.

C'mon, let's get real here. You'd probably also have to throw in Booth to get these guys. <_<

He's not in the NHL yet, so yes he is.

Well if it's that easy why don't all 30 NHL teams do it.

If they are good or in any way counter his argument then they are not prospects.

It's worked for Pittsburgh and Edmonton, who are going to be a dangerous team very soon with all that talent they've drafted by finishing last. By then Vancouver will be on the decline and in rebuild mode.
