Cory Schneider

Yann Sauve

To Van:

Ryan Strome

Rick Dipietro

NYI 2013 1st round pick

Van gets a young blue chip prospect, get the big contract off NYI hands, and get a mid-late first round pick.

NYI gets a goaltender they can now build a solid playoff team with, Tavares on offence, Reinhart on D, and Schneider in net. Strome is expandable with the amount of young prospects they already have.


To Phi:

Keith Ballard

Brendan Gaunce

Van 2014 1st round pick

Canucks get a big, young center they need to fill in their 3rd line.

Philly gets a current top 4 d in Ballard, a current replacement for Couturier, plus a first round pick.


To Ana:

Alex Edler

To Van:

Bobby Ryan

Canucks get that big bodied top 6 forward they need.

Ana gets that big top 4 dman they need.



David Booth

NJD gets some wing depth.

Van gets rid of a unnecessary contract.

First trade, probably won't cause we would want another prospect. Or it possibly could due to the depth in this years draft.

No way would I want to give Gaunce up for Couturier. Kid is solid, but no thank you, i'd rather let Gaunce develop. Ballard and a different prospect. And take out the first pick, change it to a 2nd or 3rd.

I could see the third one happening, fills both teams needs. We get a top-6 scoring winger, they get a solid d-man with scoring ability.

I would personally wanna give Booth a chance due to the fact he hasn't really had an opportunity cause of all the injuries. But rather than buy him out, i'd take a draft pick. (Even a 7th rd.)

Lain - Yes

Lapierre - Yes

Tanev - Yes

Alberts - Yes

Weise - Yes

Sestito - No

Streit - Yes

Solid lineup, good bottom-6. Give Jensen a chance and take out one fwd to free up cap space. That would come in handy during the trade deadline cause it would allow us to maneuver a little bit more.
