Shirokov's only hope this season and next to make the Canucks is one of our regulars is hurt. Even then he will be competing with Hodgson for that roster spot.

Shirkov plays either wing, but he still has to beat out Daniel Sedin, Raymond or Torres on LW or Burrows, Samuelsson, Tambellini and Hansen on RW. That is a tough assignment, especially with Hansen and Glass on the 4th line, but both able to play top six roles.
doesnt matter, Poile is going to be looking for an experienced player for the playoff run.

so I would again say, no, this doesnt happen at the deadline. possibly in the summer, but it would also be uncommon for poile to swap a high end prospect for another high end prospect.

in the rare cases he trades our prospects, its usually for a truly established player.
