I could see the Nucks flipping Ohlund to Boston for a 1st and a depth d-man.
Is Bouwmeester, Vananen, and Rypien/Green really an upgrade over Bieksa, Ohlund, and Raymond?

Basically we'd be switching those players and switching 1sts with BOS. We would save $1M in cap space but basically that's the roster change. I don't think the Canucks would risk their chemistry by trading two core players for a minor (if any) upgrade.
