Size is a huge factor here too,

If Kesler can teach Johansson the defensive game and to take a draw, putting Kesler on the wing is more appealing since it would suit Kesler's game better

Not to mention Tampa doesn't have a Right Dman to trade, and Vancouver could just as easily replace Cory with the 31st pick by taking Subban or Vasilivski and allow them to develop
Connolly would be the perfect winger for Kesler, and Kesler is really good defensively and at faceoffs so I don't think he's better at wing. Johansen isn't as good at wing as he is at center. He'd be another Hodgson. If the Canucks can acquire someone like Parentau, then i think Connolly + Det 1st + any dman(Aulie) would be great for the Canucks. Connolly is also bigger than Johansen
