I'm just suggesting that sometimes the answer is staring you right in the face. Not saying it would solve all of our problems, but it would reduce the need to find two wingers for Kesler, increase flexibility and give this group a fresh look.

Jesus...stop reminding me about this!

We have like 50 highly paid "two-way" defensemen and the coach has wingers playing the point...wtf?

Yeah, and I can't help but think that Kesler would feel particularly invigorated if he (finally) had some high end skill to play with 5 on 5.

Why don't you guys go get a life somewhere else (preferably) and, if you really are adults, and not 5 year-olds (like your toilet humor suggests), maybe you should finally think about growing up! Believe it or not, this is not your private wanking club! If you're not interested in having reasonable discussions about Canucks hockey, I'm sure there are lots of other places on the Web that would welcome your brainless input!
Hi Orcasfan.. Cornuck has addressed the issue as you see. I also have been told that certain posters will clean it up some, I hope this satisfies your query.

I have an analogy to run by you for shits and giggles.

After spending about 12 years with horses that are performing in timed events and thus speed is a factor. A horse that clocks consistently can get away with what would otherwise not be permitted, for instance this fast horse can..
Chew blankets
Chew wood
Pull back when tied up
Be picky about feed
Kick and menace other horses
Scoot forward when saddling

List can go on for days but you get the gist. This horse is coddled babied with chiropractor s massage therapists dentists the best farriers and supplements..why because he clocks.

His sidekick when on the other hand does not contribute to a winning team but is a pure gentleman otherwise...he is sold for trail rides ..all good horses have issues of some kind..

The posters you point out are far from perfect.. But they sure as hell clock.

I hope you take this as intended pm me if you want..

Happy trails

If the Sedins are still with this team after their contracts expire, our organization will be set-back by the length of their new contracts. We will not make it past the 2nd round with the Sedins as main focal points on this team again.

I seriously doubt they're looking to hit a long term home run after their current deal expires; but I agree about them not being the focal points moving forward.

Personally I think the only way they ever hoist the cup over their heads as Canucks is if they're on the second line and Gillis has managed to somehow put another true first line together using other assets.

Using Edler to move up in the draft is where I'd start looking.

Agreed. The twins have already built themselves some pretty good nest eggs, and when they negotiate their next contract I expect winning the cup will be their main concern. Thus I'd expect them to be willing to take a pretty big "hometown discount" if the money left on the table is used to add the missing pieces for a cup run. And it's pretty obvious by now that the Canucks can't go all the way as a one line team. We need another serious scoring threat so the opponents have to spread their attention instead of just focusing on the twins.

If trading Edler is what can get us that threat, then do it. But he's too valuable to just throw away.
It needs to be a very good offer. But if we get that, then go for it.
