Clowe would be sought after, but most Canucks fans covet Higgins more then any similar wingers (similar in terms of pricing and potential position within our organization). Edler for Boyle I feel we lose value on (due to age and cap hit for the remaining year, as well as value to this city), while Higgins for Clowe is almost a wash for me. Murray and Demers don't really thrill me TBH, but if Raymond is out, what about a pick and Rodin in place of Higgins?
At the moment, Boyle is definitely an improvement on Edler. Obviously Edler has more value because he's younger, but Boyle is the better defenseman. Think about Boyle and the Sedins playing together for a moment. Jesus.

As for the second part, it depends on the pick.
