To Van.

Nash

To CBJ.

Kesler
Luongo

Nash can dominate on a line with the Sedins, Kesler immediately fills our #1 center spot.. something he would never do in Van because they can't split up the twins.. Luongo solves our goalie problem.

Win for CBJ

Win for Van

Win for Nash

Win for Kesler
Vancouver gets the two best pieces in that deal. Luongo is 33 and likely to start declining. I might be the only one who espouses taking a real hardball stance with Vancouver over acquiring Luongo, but this goes too far the other way.

It's still a possibility to creep up again in the future. I mean, the front office gets blasted for not being clairvoyant over Dekanich's injuries or Carter's pouting, so I don't see taking this on and banking on an intensely personal feud calming down being worth taking a shot on.
