No, if the Canucks really falter Gillis might have to think about saving his job so acquiring immediate help, veterans only, might be what happens.

Gillis's job isn't in any danger.

Another first round loss or missing the playoffs and somebody else's job might be in jeopardy. however.

Well, that's his ace card, but he only has one of those to use. Would the new coach make it all better? Got to factor in the aging Sedins here.

The "aging" Sedins. Yes they are 32 and over the hill. :roll:

You know those old hockey players - nobody ever plays until they are 36 or 37. Sundin, Sakic, Selanne - all were done by age 33 right? The twins have 4 or 5 years of prime hockey left.

My guess is the deal will be with Florida, and will be something like

Weiss (upcoming FA so value is reduced)
Shore
Theodore

for

Lu
Raymond/Hansen
Connauton

Florida wants salary relief and cheap players. Hansen is cheap and productive, while Lu's cap hit of $5.3 million will be more than he's making shortly as it was front loaded. Perhaps the Nucks have to eat a bit of salary which wouldn't be the end of the world.

Over the Internet, you can pretend to be anyone or anything.

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

Hansen is a very underrated player, especially with his price tag. He might not have Raymond's hands. However, Raymond can never match Hansen's intensity...

Yeah, I totally agree. I'd hold on to hansen and mayray right now. I think mayray will have a nice bounce back year and look like the mayray that scored 25 for us 1 year.

Well you're half right.

You and Dude need to kiss "mayray" goodbye.

U may be right, but after our 1st line, MayRay has been our most dangerous offensive forward. Unless he gets packaged for another forward and Kes being out, I don't think we can afford to lose him right now. Also, with his pending UFA status, can't see many teams offering very much to get him.

Well then who goes in a Lu trade? Right now with all bodies healthy, one of Higgins, Raymond or Hansen is on the 4th line. That's a luxury the team likely can't afford from a cap hit perspective depending on who is coming back in return.

My guess is the trade will be larger than just Lu and it will include another forward. All depends on the return of course.
