How about ...

F Taylor Pyatt
2009 3rd Round Draft Pick

F Joffrey Lupul

PHI gets a cheap 3rd line replacement for Lupul, and a mid-round pick in a deep draft, while Vancouver gets another player for their top six. I know Lupul > Pyatt, but Philadelphia's top 6 is set, and they need cap space to sign some of their players (Vannanen, Biron, etc) and Lupul's contract of 4.25 M (kicking in next year) will preven them from doing so. Also, having a 4+ M third liner is a waste. Pyatt is a perfect 3rd line player, having a salary of only 1.5 M. His pk skills are pretty awesome too.
