If I were the Canucks though, I'd make every effort to bring Shea to vancouver this off-season. You just never know what can happen in one seasons' time.
Because they lose him as UFA for nothing possibly by matching it. You can't trade a player that a) the team elects to arbitration and b) signs an offersheet that is matched for 1 year.

That's why.
