Benning! Take Note! I bring to you a proposal from the Gods!

Recommended Posts

I really think Benning should do his best to pry Brent Burns out of San Jose and Milan Lucic out of Boston. Right now both teams are in limbo with the Canucks already in the bell curve of the ascent.

Trading for Burns and Lucic would be huge for the Canucks.

They would answer so many needs.

Both are huge players.

Both play on contending teams top lines.

Burns just one gold at the Worlds, and, well, Milan won the Stanley Cup.

They are both perfect additions in both positions.

I would suggest:

Ryan Miller, Nicklas Jensen, Chris Higgins, rights to Yannick Weber (not sure if feasible) and a 3rd round draft pick to San Jose


Brent Burns and 2nd round draft pick in 2017 to Vancouver

Radim Vrbata, Brendan Gaunce, Anton Cederholm, and Joe Cannata to Boston

Milan Lucic to Vancouver

Instant contender. Just add other team's sorry carcass.

Lucic Horvat Kassian

Sedin Sedin Burrows

Hansen Bonino Baertschi

Kenins Cassels Dorsett

Edler Burns

Hamhuis Tanev

Sbisa Bieksa

Pedan Corrado

Lucic and Burns would be nasty. Although with Burns we should be able to us him as a forward

Sedin - Sedin - Burns

Lucic - Bonino - Kassian

Baertschi - Horvat - Burrows

Dorsett - Gaunce/Matthias/Richardson - Hansen

What about lack of size and toughness again?

In 3-4 years:

Lucic - Sedin - Burns

Virtanen - Bonino - Kassian

Sedin - Horvat - Baertschi

Dorsett - Gaunce - Burrows

Both play on contending teams top lines? Both their teams didnt even make the playoffs man lol

Neither trade would get either of them. I do agree it would be amazing if we could get them though.
