I don't think it's necessary to move both of them out of town really. Bieksa makes the most sense because he's a top 4 guy most effective paired with a good shutdown defenseman. Like I said before, his salary won't make any sense if he's playing in the third pairing. Either way, clearing 3.75m off our cap is sufficient enough to re-sign Raymond and add other pieces along the way. I'm also in favour of keeping Alberts too, because I think he could play decently as a 6/7 guy if he's given the time to adapt to the Canuck's system.

Keeping a 6th defenseman until the trade deadline and use him as a trade piece if anyone we could use becomes available would be great.
