The #habs give up prospect Sebastien Collberg and a conditional second-round pick for Tomas Vanek

EDIT:
Pierre LeBrun ‏@Real_ESPNLeBrun 1m
According to @GMillerTSN, Preds get Patrick Eaves, a prospect and a 3rd-round pick for Legwand

Exactly. Why settle on a weaker package "just to get rid" of Kesler.

He's been the best Canuck this year. Even amid trade rumours and this alleged request, he's been playing balls to the wall.

MG had every right to ask for the absolute highest-quality deal for someone like Kesler. It's not like he's going to sulk and sandbag while being here.

i hope you guys figured out by now that the owners are in for the money only.
when he says he wants the bring the cup to Vancouver, he really means he wants 4 rounds of playoff revenue without forking out more salary.

What really attracted the owners to buy the team was for the land (read this somewhere online a few years back). That has now become 3 condo/office towers which will allow the owners to profit (pay for their purchase) and then generate a steady revenue stream (from the arena, team, and office building)

are you guys ready for the toronto maple laughs of the west? i am.

Aquaman runs an Italian sweatshop based on the way he treats his foreign workers.


This team needs a baller owner who has a passion for hockey and wants Canucks fans to see this team win a championship.

A Mark Cuban of the NHL!

What a disaster by Snow, he overplayed his hand trying to deal Vanek to Ducks, Pens, Kings, Wings and seems like had to scramble last minute to get what he could. That is a shitty return for Vanek. So really NYI traded Moulson, 1st rd pick, 2nd round pick for Collberg and a lower 2nd round pick

@NYP_Brooksie: Dysfunction in Van with ownership first all but directing hire of coach (Tortorella) and then asserting power in Kesler trade talks.

Now we know Aquilini is calling the shots and dictating what can be done and what can't. MG is simply a puppet and can't do what's best for the team due to greedy owners

Penguins beat writer reporting that the Pens front office got the sense that Canucks owners were getting in the way. So there seems to be some truth to this as I'd think the Pens writer would have connections to the Pens front office and what they were hearing

Told #pens felt they had substantial offer to #Canucks. Feel ownership nixed plans for trade that would have sent Kesler to Pitt.

#pens felt good about Kesler as of Tuesday. Started Wednesday not confident that #Canucks ownership would let the trade happen.

Owners should just cut cheques and sit back and reap the profits coming in. That, or just fire the GM if you're going to be making those calls yourself anyways.

Tell that to Al Davis before he died.

Or Ed Snyder.

Or Jerry Jones (though he's actually the GM of the Cowboys, right? Edit: He is!).

Or Daryl Katz.

The last one is a little closer to home lol

Edit2: You know what all of those owners have in common?

True indicator is when after the lockout, they jacked up the ticket prices.

I really hope this team loses them a bunch of money that they'd eventually have to sell it. Meddling owners are never a good thing.

One thing we forgot to mention for those saying we can get possibly more for Kesler in the summer, is we are forgetting he has a NTC. Just cus joe moe overre there offers a bigger package, if Kesler says I don't wanna go there then that's that lol I think the teams he was willing to waive the NTC were fighting for him NOW, which only goes to show he'll either get the same or less in the summer imo.
