On 10 June 2011, I wrote that Mike Smith was my preferred option. Well, I got him. I just hope that Sean Burke, Don Maloney, and I are right about this . . .

Then there are guys like Nabokov or Schneider who could be traded for. The benefit of Schneider is that the Canucks have limited cap space and some key players to resign, especially in light of a President’s Trophy / Stanley Cup Finals run. So they wouldn’t want contracts going back.
LaBarbara was good insurance, though they might have acted too soon. If they could get a Schneider / Smith combo, with them both hungry for the number one job, it’d propel them both to greater things, and help cover for some of the uh, deficiencies, we have that Bryzgalov was so good at hiding.
