Not arguing against depth on the Canucks (which is best in the league so far), but coaches often shuffle lines and rotate players in and out of the top 6. That doesn't make all of those players top 6 players.

Hansen and Glass are most definitely not top 6 guys.

Tambellini has had one good run of a dozen games in his career. He is not a bonafide top 6 yet. Torres is more of a third liner.

Booth is an upgrade on all four of those players and probably Samuelsson as well. However, Booth is not worth Vancouver mortgating their future, especially after Booth's recent concussion. Horrible trade for Vancouver.
