    Canucks looking for a 3rd line C

    Canucks' trade wish
    The Vancouver Canucks got defenseman Alexander Edler back Monday night, and winger Alex Burrows and netminder Roberto Luongo are close to returning as well. It's beginning to come together for them roster-wise.

    But will they add to it?

    If it's doable, the word on the street is that the Canucks would like to add a center before the trade deadline or, if not a center, a top-nine winger. But preferably a center, I think. Brad Richardson has been terrific as a No. 3 center for the Canucks, but I suspect they feel if they can have him centering the No. 4 line and upgrade the No. 3 center spot, they would feel better about their playoff chances.

    If there's no fit, keeping Richardson in the No. 3 hole and upgrading the No. 4 center job is another option.

    The Canucks are deep on defense throughout the organization, and that's the carrot they're willing to put out there if they can help themselves in a meaningful way up front.

    Maybe could package Corrado and Schroeder for something useful.
    So Anna, what do you think about the notion that Russell Wilson is better than Andrew Luck?

    I feel like this is the story every year.

    "3rd line C and top 6 winger"

    Mike Gillis' face needs to be on a milk carton. There are rumours that he's been around for the past few seasons but no evidence in terms of meaningful moves. Also featured on milk cartons, the local media, who still keep writing the "it looks like we need offence" stories as if they just discovered that.

    It feels like we're all in "Groundhog Day" re-living the same dream again and again.

    It all comes down to the Cody Hodgson trade.

    I definitely agree in terms of trades. But really it all comes down to thinking our core players were core players.

    The stagnation on this franchise stems from that misjudgement.

    LeBrun linked Canucks to Ryan O'Reilly:

    If the Avs do put O’Reilly on the trade market (and again, we don't know if they ever will), there would be at least a dozen teams interested. One of them would likely be the Vancouver Canucks, who are said to covet O’Reilly and have depth at defense, which is what the Avs would be looking for. Food for thought …

    Torts really liked Brian Boyle as his 3rd line center as a Ranger. He played Boyle a lot. Boyle will be a FA. Do you think the teams might talk?
