Not that I'm bashing Zetterberg or anything, just the Canucks don't need him.
Zetterberg has played LW before and is a fine playmaker, not to mention good defensively. Losing Edler sucks but Garrison makes up for that point shot on the power play. We lack goal scoring and Zetterberg would help us tremendously in that department.

If nothing else, we move Kesler to RW.

You're acting like having 3 strong centers is a bad thing. Crosby-Malkin-Staal worked out quite well. Zetterberg or Kesler can play the third line (oh yeah, our 3rd line wingers are quite potent themselves) and facilitate for their wingmates and give us 3 scoring lines, 2 of which can provide lockdown D.

What is the Sedins' current window? 3-4 years? So is Zetterberg's. Gotta win now. Edler won't exactly be the piece that keeps us competitive for 1 years.
