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.

TJ Oshie. He's the number one target IMO. He is a mixed bag in that he plays a bigger game than his body is built for, which results in a lot of injuries. He's also go immaturity issues. But for shoring up that RW spot, he's the ticket. With him in the fold the top6 would be set.

Raymond would be a good asset to send the other way because of the uncertainty surrounding Perron and McDonald, year to year. Both have significant concussion issues. Meanwhile, Oshie is already playing behind Stewart on RW. Next year, Tarasenko should challenge for a RW spot also. So they have the organizational depth to make a deal for a LW spot. Getting a versatile player like Raymond on the LW could benefit them more in the long run. Add a LD like Sauve/Alberts or a prospect like Schroeder, and it has the makings of a solid deal for both sides IMO.

Oshie for Raymond and Schroeder/Sauve.
