Canucks need a RW with a good skill set and some size to compliment the second line. The biggest trading chip the team has is Schneider and there aren't many teams looking to give up big assets for a goalie at the moment. I propose trading Schneids away closer to the deadline to a team like Tampa..

Canucks trades - Schneider + Sauve

Tampa Bay trades - Purcell + 2nd rounder

Tampa gets the goalie they need to stay competitive for the playoffs. They also acquire defensive depth. Trading Purcell away is based on the continuing improvement of Connolly and Ashton who are both playing very well at the moment. The Lightning can afford to trade an asset such as Purcell since there is a bit of a logjam on the wings. Their major need is a goalie and a defenseman to solidifying their defense.

Vancouver completes this trade because of the offensive flair Purcell can bring to the second line. Hes a big Newfy whose still young and is about to hit his prime. They also gain a 2nd rounder to flip for Anaheim's third rounder if they choose to do.
