http://www.sportsnet...move-bo-horvat/

really caught my eye to see this video, here the run down:

1. canucks need serious help scoring, need a primary scorer not a secondary one

2. andrew ladd was used as a good fit for the canucks

3. the asking price the panel thought would start at would be Bo Horvat

4. Kyper said the would cost more Bo Horvat++ to get a first line guy like ladd

NOTES:

1.Kyper admitted Horvat is "sexy top prospect" but you dont what hell be

2.Lawton claimed that the Sedin extension means that Van should do whatever it takes to win now, he went on with this point Bo Horvat will never win a cup with a team lead by the Sedins (guessing he was referring to development time and how much the Sedins have left in the tank)

3.The panel ended by stating that this is a tough decision but you need to give value to get value

what do you guys think?

P.S. i sorry for the spelling mistakes in the title i was typing fast

The first piece the Canucks need to look at moving is Edler before the rest of the league realizes how awful he is in his own zone.

Sportsnet is a complete and utter joke. I bet even I'd do a better job than their analysts.

Don't you think someone would have traded for him when he was available before his NTC kicked in if he was really worth what people think? Gillis was probably trying to get a top 6 forward for him and no team would bite yet people think we can get Semin straight up for him LOL

I don't like the idea of moving our already shallow prospects pool or we'll end up like Calgary or Edmonton when "rebuild" time does (if it) rolls around. We have depth at D and I'd move one of them before I even consider touching the prospects.

No. If it was a very possible cup ala Nieuwendyk for Iginla then maybe but I don't think there's a guy that'll do that for us.

I see no reason at all to give away that kid. Sportsnet is just making busy news.

San Jose never went all-in. Instead, they drafted well and let guys like Couture and Vlasic grow into top-tier players. I think they have more depth at this point and they're getting a lot of mileage out of Joe, Marleau and Boyle, but the Canucks should let their prospects pan out and make an impact while the Sedins are still first-line players.

Nope, they couldn't do it with a better team then and they sure as hell can't do it now unless every lucky bounce literally goes our way... and then some.

To be a contender down the road, you need a strong prospect pool. Last draft helped us get started on that..

If ladd were 24 i would do that deal in a heartbeat but he is 28 and in a few years we have the same situation all over again. We are effectively shortening our good team status for chance at the cup. And trust me we need more then ladd to get it done.

So No Way.

I am never going to spend another second watching sports ever again here's why.

 What are the canucks called? They are called Canucks Sports and Entertainment. Ever wondered what Sports and entertainment means? Here's the defination: Sports entertainment is a type of spectacle which presents an ostensibly competitive event using a high level of theatrical flourish and extravagant presentation, with the purpose of entertaining an audience. Unlike typical athletics and games, which are conducted for competition, sportsmanship, exercise or personal recreation, the primary product of sports entertainment is performance for an audience's benefit, thus they are never practiced privately. Commonly, the outcomes are predetermined; as this is an open secret, it is not considered to be match fixing.

Def not the trade to make when the team seems so far from the best teams. Didn't these clowns see what happened when the flames kept making trades like this?

I think some of my brain cells died watching that video. These idiots have no idea what they are talking about. It would be like me going on National TV and talking about what some random tier 2 Slovkian league team should do,

Does Brian Lawton not understand this team had scoring problems before we fired AV.

Does Nick Kypreos not understand the Sedin contracts mean we want to keep our franchise players, not that we are going to necessarily mortgage the future every year & go balls to the wall for a cup.

Sportsnet is terrible, our mainstream hockey media coverage in Canada is terrible.

Ah. Let's see, Canucks play no games Fri/Sat and the Comets are in Abbotsford, so nobody with a local IP address is visiting Sportsnet's site. Solution?

It's just Snet and CBC. TSN would have worked out, but we'll wait until the Snet exclusivity deal starts backfiring.

We gave up Schneider for Horvat there's no way he gets traded. Horvat is our only untouchable prospect, he's basically the only bright spot for this teams future.

Lol, there are 5 players it's okay to send Bo Horvat the other way for, approx. Maybe 10. They include Crosby, Weber, Toews, P. KANE, Ovechkin. Perry, PK, etc.

I'd consider it. Trading him for someone like Ladd, Ray Whitney, Heatley or Hemsky could really boost our GF.

Sportsnet is only good for watching the actual games, other than that there hockey analysts/analysis and there sports highlights suck compared to TSN.
