Sedin---Sedin---Kass
Simmonds---Kesler---Callahan
Higgins---Santorelli---Frolik/Boyes or Burr
Richardson---Horvat---Burr or Frolik/Boyes

Depending on Santo's, Kassian's, and other UFA/RFA resigning costs, it should be cap compliant.


While we're at it we should probably trade Horvat, Hamhuis, and Burrows for Joel Ward and John Erskine.

Actually, if no one is going to stand up for our goalies after they get run over a few times in Cali, let's get a guy who will stand up for himself... Ray Emery! Didn't Lou tweet after that if he sees Emery going after him, he's going to run? That just tells u all u need to know about Lou. :lol:

Would it be possible to get Neal? On pace for 41 goals and 88pts in 62 GP. Playing with Crosby probably helped, though.

If we were to trade for JVR, would TOR even want Edler, let alone another Dman? I see few proposals for JVR but when I do Edler is the main piece. Phaneuf, Franson, Rielly, Gardiner, Gunnarsson, Gleason, Edler?

He could be as good as Kevin Stevens or John Cullen!

Neal usually plays on Malkin's line (with Sid on the PP though).

Personally I think Neal is a great player in his own right.

Everything here is fantasy, where is there actually any trades or real rumours?

Maybe we need a fantasy thread on its own?

I have succumbed to the fact that this team can't win it all this season, especially given on how well the Cali teams have easily dominated this current canucks team all season long, including last season, which means all these injuries are no excuse.

No way in hell this team can beat LA, SJ or Anaheim in a 7 game series until MG can solidify the top 6 by adding an elite 2nd line scorer to help Kesler, and get a top 4 defense that has the proper mix of natural left and right side dmen that includes a pure QB dman, which means one of Garrison/Edler/Hamhuis has to be dealt to deal with this clusterfck of offside dmen.

Richardson is perfectly fine for the 3rd line center spot imo and we have many elite 3rd line wingers to help him, the 4th line is doing above average lately with Sestito-Dalpe-Weise.

I agree Skyo...no way we can beat those teams with the current roster. Which is darn depressing...I find it hard to be positive about this team when they are facing a first round opponent that is likely one of Chicago, St Louis, Anaheim, LA or SJS. Gulp.

If the refs actually call all the penalties as they should, the Canucks might come up with a win in Anaheim (assuming that Sestito stood in front of the net for the all the power plays).

We would also get several "long" 5-on-3 opportunities.....

What took you so long? It was nearly inevitable when the new CBA was signed a year ago and the cap was lowered. There was thought of some cap relief to help the matter from trading Luongo, but we know what happened there.

It was a big part of the reason I thought keeping at least one of Horvat/Gaunce/Shrinkwrap would have been beneficial.

I didn't expect the Canucks to be on the bottom of a dog fight for a playoff spot but a couple of teams are doing better than I expected.
Over the Internet, you can pretend to be anyone or anything.

I'm amazed that so many people choose to be complete twats.
