Then pull the trigger on AV.
Follow that up with dealing Lou for whatever he can get, Schneider for a Kings ransom, and then sign Mike Smith. (I think that was Tant's or AP18's idea).
Trade Edler for a good prospect or pick and some stay home, defense first, help. Or a good right shooting top 4 guy and demote Corrado to the 7th.
Deal whatever needs to be dealt to get into the top 5. Hopefully high enough to draft McKinnon.
Sign a 2nd line center and promote Kesler.
Find a top 6 winger who can complement Benn and Kes.
Drop Lapierre, Ebbett, and a few others, trade Higgins for someone with a bit more speed and desire to play every night.
Consider trading Schroeder for a solid 3rd line center who isn't 5 foot nothing. If Schroeder fits the gameplan, slot him in and have a 3rd scoring line with Hansen on the wing to bolster the forecheck.
Find a solid 4th line center, one that you over pay by as much as a million because he can hit, check, and skate, and because the 4th line is that important in the playoffs.
Replace Sestito with someone quicker and meaner. I'd go after Raffi.
C'mon Louie, make it happen for us!
You think the Canucks are going to turn over 45% of their rosters, including the Twins. HA.
One key player will be moved for prospects and a number of plugs will be replaced with other plugs. That's it.
Think Elder for a D prospect and a third liner, and then replace Sestito, Ballard, Lapierre, Roy, and Weise with other crappy fringer NHLers and projects.
Luongo will go for a 2nd rounder or a 3rd rounder, and Lack will come into back up CS.
