elvis15 Posted May 19, 2015 Share Posted May 19, 2015 I would absolutely trade Hamhuis - for the right return. Some team might offer it at the deadline but that's a big if. I don't see us really getting that return/value for Bonino though, and I'd rather see that play out with he and Horvat in the middle six for the next couple of years. Vrbata clearly will have value at the deadline, and Higgins and Hansen are enough of supporting pieces that trading them shouldn't be an issue (again, if we get a reasonable return for the future). The same goes for Miller but the value just won't be there unless we retain cap (which I wouldn't be against). But, I certainly don't advocate making all these deals at once. A couple prior to the draft and maybe a couple more before the deadline next year and it'd allow us to get more picks and give prospects a chance to step into the lineup. It's a slow turnover for the development process, while keeping some vets to ease the transition and mentor the younger players. It can be done that way if the Canucks are smart about it, but it requires patience and someone willing to take on the pieces we want to move.
