    Huselius is still out for two months I think, and would be better for a deadline deal.

    I would like dorsett. I got to watch him play alot, he would be great 4th liner. Nash obviously but not happening. What about Iginla? That would be a good fit with the Sedin. Imagine someone roughing up a Sedin in the playoffs, Iginla would kill them.

    Would change the team overnight.

    "Calgary" trades their best player to "Vancouver". Haha. I think they'd take a lesser deal to trade him somewhere else. Iggy isn't going anywhere.

    Iginla to Vancouver sadly is never happening. Calgary is dumb, but not quite that dumb.
    TAKE PRIDE

    Sutter made some brutal trades throughout his years there. I can't believe that team made the cup finals in 03.

You see it all the time teams trading a bunch for a big player then it becomes a bust. The thing thats better about getting booth is he's still developing, we didn't trade much to get him, we got a 3rd round pick back which you never know what that can turn out to be and he can grow into the canucks and turn into the type of player we have wanted and needed. And he's already shown what he can do. And no raymond isnt a bonafide top 6 fw but you can't really compare him to booth since booth has played on a much much much ******** team then the canucks his whole career. Actually I would say booth is a bonafide top 6 players because looking at his stats he seems to do 50 + points and thats what 2nd line players usually do just booth has shown he can put it in the net un-like raymond. I don't think raymond has yet to do that.

    I know your mostly upset that it seems cody is going to the 3rd line now but who really knows. Vigneaut is always changing the bottom 3 lines. And really idk if it will or would ever work with cody here. We have our 4 centers locked up basically and he's playing in a position he's not used to playing so yeah I just dk if it will or ever would work here. It sucks but its the reality but again who knows vigneaut is always changing up the bottom 3 lines.

    But yee we can keep going at it all day but the point is we got him, be happy for what we got there's a very good chance this works out given age, type of player, and our team and style. We got rid of 2 players that are basically done a 3rd rounder and a depth guy if we ever need him. We have a whole season to go, who knows what happens. If things go wrong we can easisly make another trade with the assets we have. I know our team is in a better place then it was before the trade and I know since gillis has came we have been in a much, much, much better place so I'd take it easy on him cause this team had the potential to go to **** a couple years ago...
    I totally hear what you're saying. My point is that a lot of people lay all the blame for the Canucks' failure in the finals last year at Luongo's feet. I think the problem is that we are just too easy to stop offensively. The Sedins do not do well under the intense checking you see in a finals and that puts a TON of pressure on the second line to produce. We don't have that second line to keep the other team honest. I have been hoping for Gillis to make an impact trade not pick up someone who might be OK.

    We still don't have a second line to keep the other team honest, and as I called it, our weak offence was going to cost us. About the trade, Booth was less than OK for us this year, also as predicted. Suck it up Mike and make a deal for a difference maker!
