Teams make pretty awful trading partners. Carolina doesn't exactly have any position they can consider a strength. Vancouver lost some defensive depth already with Ehrhoff leaving and its not like Vancouver is pushing up against the cap and need relief.

The only trade that might make a bit of sense is Ballard for someone, but I can't see anyone who the canes are able to part with who Vancouver could actually use at this point. If they were willing to trade Ruutu, but that would leave them almost embarrassingly thin after trading staal.
