Sitting at my desk at work right now...pretty bored with nothing to do and the forums seemed to have dried up due to her current skid-so I was pondering this one question.
What I am wondering is, what is the biggest trade the Canucks have made with each of the 30 NHL teams.
Some of the newer teams I can't recall the Canucks really dealing any players for. If you can, post up which trade you feel is the most significant for the Canucks. Either the other team getting the better end of the deal or the Nucks.
As people submit their biggest trade for the different teams, I will fill in the blanks.
Calgary:Ronnie Sturm for Dana Muryzn
Chicago:Vancouver Canucks traded Bryan McCabe and 1st round selection (Pavel Vorobiev) in 2000 to the Chicago Blackhawks for 1st round selection (Daniel Sedin) and Ivan Bolderev and Darcy Rota for?
St.Louis:St. Louis Blues traded Geoff Courtnall, Robert Dirk, Sergio Momesso, Cliff Ronning and 5th round selection (Brian Loney) in 1992 to the Vancouver Canucks for Dan Quinn and Garth Butcher
Boston: - CamNeely and Vancouver's first round draft pick in 1987 (Glen Wesley) to for Barry Pederson
New Jersey:Kirk Mclean Traded by Devils (with C Greg Adams) to Vancouver Canucks for C Patrik Sundstrom and fourth-round pick in 1988 draft (LW Matt Ruchty), Later it would be Mogilny to the New Jersey Devils for Brendan Morrison, Denis Pederson
Buffalo:Buffalo Sabres traded Alexander Mogilny and 5th round selection (Todd Norman) in 1995 to the Vancouver Canucks for Mike Peca, Mike Wilson and 1st round selection (Jay McKee) in 1995.

Philadelphia:Sean Burke for Garth Snow. Later Vancouver Canucks traded Donald Brashear and a 6th round selection (later traded to Columbus - Jaroslav Balastik) in 2002 to the Philadelphia Flyers for Jan Hlavac and 3rd round selection (previously acquired - Brett Skinner) in 2002. Dennis Ververgaert for Kevin McCarthy
Tampa Bay:Dan Cloutier for Adrian Aucoin and a 2nd round pick
Toronto: Rick Viave, Bill Derlego for Dave "Tiger" Williams and Jerry Butler.
Pittsburgh: Markus Naslund for Alex Stojanov
Washington:Trevor Linden and a 2nd round selection (previously acquired - Denis Grot) in 2002 to the Vancouver Canucks for a 1st round selection (Boyd Gordon) in 2002 and a 3rd round selection in 2003.
Atlanta Flames: Don Lever for Darcy Rota and Ivan Boldirev
Minnesota North Stars: Gary " Suitcase" Smith for Cesare Maniago. Tom Kurvers tfor Dave Babych
I'm not that old yet, so I can't remember some of the really old trades in the 70's and early 80's- so any more senior posters can post up their ideas.
I'll start with Florida and say as of right now, the Bure trade is bigger then the Luongo trade. Just because Jovo has made more of an impact on the Canucks and Bure went on to post some great numbers with the Panthers.
We can even post up some of the defunct teams, if anyone remembers any big names being dealt there.
If there is some argument between which trade was more significant, I can put up multiple trades.
