Recommended Posts

With these trades and signing Vancouver will be great.

Trade # 1:

To Vancouver:

Ryan Getzlaf

Bobby Ryan

To Anaheim:

Ryan Kesler

David Booth

Kevin Bieska

Mason Raymond

Reasons: Kesler, Booth, Getzlaf and Ryan all coming off subpar seasons. A change a scenery would Benefit all those players. Kevin Bieska has been playing terrible hockey ever since the stanley cup finals vs Boston Last year. Kesler Needs to Learn to pass, If hes not going to do it in Vancouver Move him somewhere else. Booth just doesn't seem like hes going to work out in vancouver hes too much a streaky player, He couldn't even get anything going with the sedins .Vancouver gets a Playmaking second line center and a skilledr forward two players that instantly Upgrade the Top six, But Sacrafices Defensive Depth. Anaheim Gains the Defensive Depth they have been looking for and Get Two top six forwards. Cogliano and Raymond would be the fastest third line in the league he (Raymond) could be utilized very well there.

Trade # 2:

To Vancouver:

Tampa Bay's First Round Draft Pick (2012)

Brett Connolly

Ryan Malone

To Tampa Bay:

Roberto Luongo

Vancouver's First Round Pick (2012)

Marc Andre-Gragnani's Rights

Keith Ballard

Alexandre Burrows


Tampa Bay needs a goalie, Vancouver has two one of them has got to go, Luongo is most likely to be traded as Schneider has Excelled in his role as backup and Is Ready to be a number one goalie in the NHL. MAG and Ballard to give Tampa Bay options on the blue line. Burrows, I know many of you love him but his time in Vancouver is about up, Hes a great defensive player but he has been Producing with the Sedins, Burrows is not a top six forward. Ryan Malone To take the Cap hit, He would Be a great player to play with the sedins on the top line. Brett Connolly is a top young player, Will develop into a top line player. They Key piece of this deal is Tampa Bay's First round Draft pick, with so much Defensive Depth in this years Draft the Canucks Could Get Griffin Reinhart, Or Matthew Dumba at number Ten a future Impact Defensemen. Now some of you May say of Tampa Would Never do this, Well for one Tampa need a goaltender Their offense is spoken For And They get Proven Players While the Canucks Dump a bit of salary and pick up some Prospects at the same time.

Trade #3

To Vancouver:

Travis Hamonic

To New York Islanders:

Chris Higgins

Manny Malholtra

Chris Tanev

Reasons: Six Foot 200 pound Defensemen who was plus on the New York Islanders What More Do i need to say. To The islanders They Get Two Bottom Six Forwards to round Out their Depth and A Young and Up and Coming Dman who will grow with the Young Team

Now This would Be the Canucks Line up With some holes in it (Before Signings)

No. Just no.

1.First of all Lack needs more time in the AHL with starting minutes and Schneider should have a veteran back up goal tender, not someone less experienced than him.

2.Suter only getting 5.5M? You do remember the other 29 teams in the league right? Many of them would gladly offer up over 5.5M for Suter.

3. Anyone who trades away Burrows is loopy in my opinion. This is a guy who gives us 110% every day, is a fan favourite, meshes with any line he plays on, is the definition of both clutch and effort and has one of if not the best contracts for what he brings.

4. Hansen on the first line? I like the guy too, he is all about hard work and he never quits on the play, but c'mon man not the top line.

5. Anaheim says no, Tampa takes the deal and runs and I think you undervalue Tanev's abilities and what he can become. We should hang onto him.

6. :picard:

You traded 4 defensemen for a D-man that the Islanders wouldn't move. And our D wasn't deep enough before the trade.


You have a line of a player who hasn't played one game in the NHL, a player who has just proven he's not ready for the NHL, and a not defensively responsible rookie... none of which are good on face-offs as our THIRD LINE.

I'm sure opposing top lines would hate going up against that line...
