Why would a team that is looking to challenge for the cup trade away a #1 d-man, unless of course they are loaded with them, which no team is. It doesn't make sense IMO as it would just open up another hole,a harder hole to fill. Zhitnik isn't a #1 d-man and is probably at best a #3 on most top teams in the league.
To Buffalo: Jovonowski/Ohlund and Fedorov
To Vancouver: Satan and Zhintik
Buffalo gets their #1 D-man, Vancouver gets great scoring from the 2nd line. Zhitnik takes over the #2 spot for whichever d-man Buffalo gets.
I wouldn't even consider that deal from a Canucks' perspective. I like Satan and would love to have him on the Canucks, but #1 d-man are far to valuable in this league, and the Canucks, or any contending team for that matter, can't afford to trade one away.
The best bet to get a #1 d-man or someone who could become a #1 guy is the Isles IMO. They could use some offensive help and could part with Roman Hamrlik to get it. Could be a fit there, maybe something like this:
Just a thought...
