What, we give up the 5th? Twitter is saying that we get the 5th, but TSN says other wise.

This trade is worse and worse.

According to Willie, yes.

Saying Kassian traded to open up a RW spot for Virtanen.
The only HW the Canucks need

We get the 5th, I think.

I get that people will see Prust as an underwhelming return for the "potential" of Kassian - but it's not too bad if you look at the "reality" of Kassian right now. Maybe Kassian will still become a better difference-maker someday - but at least Prust is a useful, heart-and-soul, abrasive player today.

Wait - Canucks give the 5th? That sucks.

We better, but TSN says otherwise. If we give up the 5th, WTF?

It is giving up the draft pick, if correct, that pisses me off.

I can't blame him . I hope he scores 50 points and sticks it up Bennings and Desjardins ass. But hey Willies boy Vey is still here to fill in as a power forward . This management team is a joke .

Well I have heard that Kassian was a bit of negative presence in the dressing room and didn't want him around the kids they want to start bringing in. Apparently Kassian laid into Horvat one game and they were none to pleased about it

Let's get smaller and smaller . I'm sure Nathan Gerbe could be acquired . Hopefully the Benning show is in year 2 of its 3 year run .

The objective is to get smaller, softer and older... FFS.

This better be a part of an overall tank plan, if not, ouch.

This reeks of the Canucks wanting to bring in more youth than we expect and want to surround them with a Luther presence in Prust.

Prust and Dorsett is a pretty scrappy combination, both guys can play decent hockey for being two of the leagues busiest scrappers
