Is there any chance two (Vancouver/Montreal) teams would trade struggling d-men? Spacek is struggling right now for Montreal but is experienced and probably would do better on his natural side if Vancouver has room for him there.

Some of the Montreal fanbase is enamored with Bieksa because of his right hand shot and physical presence. Maybe Bieksa paired with a guy like Hamrlik could help solve some of his defensive woes.

The result would be a veteran d-man (Spacek) added to a younger d core and a younger d-man added to an older Montreal core.

O'Byrne appears to be in the dog house too. Is there a younger d-man the Canucks would part with as well? Something like..........

Bieksa / younger D


Spacek / O'Byrne

He would be paired with Markov, which should help in that area. Anytime O'bryne and Markov are in the lineup together, they try them together. Komisarek and Markov before. They like having a physical guy there to protect their best player.
