Exactly. People requesting that MG do something this year I have a question for you all: Who's out there and available?

People always say "oh man if MG doesn't make a trade we can kiss our cup hopes goodbye!"

Since we're all looking at teams as they're assembled now, can someone explain to me how Vancouver, even if they were to sell the farm to get whatever imaginary player is available (and get Kesler Booth Kassian blah blah blah back), is going to get through Chicago/LA in a 7 game series to win the West, and one of Boston/Pitts in a 7 game series for a potential cup?

Of course I'm asking this assuming all parties are healthy. God forbid someone brings up the "anything can happen in the playoffs" idea.

Khudobin and Rask are both only 26 and goalies don't traditionally peak until their 30's. Why wouldn't Chiarelli trade Subban for Iggy?


Strombone ‏@strombone1 7h
@JayOnrait 34 to be exact.......

With a player like Crosby every year you can win a cup.

For the people saying "I hope MG doesn't make a move" are you nuts? The Canucks are finished after this year and the next Sedins don't have what it takes to lead the Canucks anywhere. Cups aside a Kane and Toews tandem is worth twice what the Sedins are worth to a team. Sedins have never "willed" the Canucks on any sort of
Important win, have you ever once seen them take the team on their back and lead them to a huge win? It's never happened

If we don't win in the next two years it's going to be a 5 year rebuild. You give up picks and assets you can live without in the future for any sort of minuscule return that helps NOW

The way other teams in the west/east are looking though Canucks are already out of it.

I'd fail u but i can't... How many teams win a cup by the rentals they trade for??? Ya.. not many because it's the core group of guys who should be the ones who take you there not the rentals. And fyi, the canucks prospect pool is basically depleted.

Can we expect the Flames to sell the farm to get Olli Jokinen back?

Name me one recent cup winner who signed an A1 rental who helped said team win the cup.

And hate on the Sedins all you want. They helped the Canucks to a Game 7 of a Stanley Cup final. That's the same level that Vancouver's beloved Trevor/Bure tandem got the Canucks to. Or the rag-tag 82 team that I'm too young to remember but hear so much about. And since you're being quite dramatic about the Sedins not carrying the team on their backs when it mattered, I can provide 1 such game simply to refute your point: 2010 First round Game 6 vs the Kings. Or the 2011 Sharks series. The entire series. And for those who say they didn't win the cup- well, the way the team played in 4 of the last 5 games in that series, Vancouver was lucky to not lose 4 straight.

To that, I say "what assets?" And for who? Like I said above, who's out there?

It's amazing that people always provide Canuck pieces for a potential trade, but nobody ever provides a trade target.

Here's a potential trade to illustrate how silly a ton of us Canuck fans sound: Kassian Schroeder Jensen Schneider and our next 2 first rounders for Stamkos and Hedman. That takes care of all of our needs for that cup run we're all waiting for! And we sold the farm too!

Wow, if I was Feaster I would've held onto Iggy. Tell the fans other teams were offering up garbage. Is it just me or did Brendan Morrow get a better return than Iginla did?

Iginla is #12 on SI.com's player poll of most overrated players......Needless to say though, Calgary's return makes him look like he's worth next to nothing...
