Anaheim will trade Bonino, Sbisa plus 24th overall pick and teams will swap third-rounders once deal goes through

So I guess getting two roster players allows them to move Garrison for futures? At least the drama of a "Ryan Kesler Situation" is over? Uhhh is there a silver lining here somewhere? Bob McKenzie's consensus list has guys like Barbashev and Scherbak still on the board in the 20's?

Second year in a row where we have two first round picks plus on in the top ten.

The return is less than I was hoping for.

IMO, the Canucks should have been able to get one of Etem/DSP/10th overall as the main piece coming back, not Bonino, who is not going to replace Kesler whatsoever.

Well I'd wager picking up Sbisa allows Lindenning to move one of Tanev or Garrison. The 24th might help us get up to 1st overall.

Not sure I'm a fan of this.....Bonino and Sbisa are alright, but I would have liked to see us get more than the 24th as well having to trade down in the 3rd round.

Both Bonino and Sbisa are young. Bonino has the potential to be a second line centre.

Yeah now we got a shitload of dmen, one or two of them gone!

At #24 we can get another solid forward or use it for the #1 deal.

Bonino will be the 2nd/3rd line center for vet depth till one of our young guns is ready to take over.

...this is what I came back for today?

Hopefully this is a precursor to more or I'll chalk it up on the disappointing side with respect to a first (bold) move from the new regime.

My feeling exactly.

Must wait on how the day unfolds before judging, but the return is very discouraging seeing as they dealt him to a division rival.

Three fives for a twenty.

At this point I am just hoping that the fancy stats are correct and Kes is simply no longer the player he once was.. given his Olympic play that's probably not the case.

Yeah Donny,

On the surface it looks rather disappointing, after all the speculation about what we wanted back or talk about keeping Kesler if the return package wasn't good enough.

I'm hoping though that some of these assets might be what a certain GM wants to give up for a certain top pick in this year's draft.
