I liked Coho alot and really dreaded it when MG made that trade. I'm glad to see Coho doing well and I always thought Coho has more upside to become a star player, but Kass brings the much needed grit that this team is sorely missing. It's still early to judge this trade though.
I totally agree with ya though, the canucks could really use help @ centre ice right now, especially with Kes injured and Malhotra sidelined. Only having 2/4 of the centres we were planning to have by now really blows. Higgins looked decent @ centre, I am more comfortable with him there than MayRay. Ebbett might be a decent band-aid guy for now to use up and down the lineup, but it'd be nice to get a veteran centreman to help out in the short-term. It doesn't have to be a superstar or anything and a rental guy would be great, but not I am not sure who is really available right now.

I'm not fine with not replacing him in the lineup - get off your ass and get a center Gillis. If it's Derek Roy that's fine, if not just get someone who can win the odd faceoff and play in the middle. Way too many wingers on this team - Daniel, Burr, Raymond, Higgins, Booth, Kassian, Jannik are all top 9 guys, and the top prospect on the team is a winger too. Time to package one or two with a draft pick and get somebody good - you can't keep them all next year anyway.
I know I keep harping on this, perhaps at some point my wish will come true if I keep saying it.
