Both teams improve even though both teams trade away very good players who were expected to be core players. The skill levels of all four players are fairly equal and considerably above average but the two teams trade players from areas they have depth at their respective positions and receive players in areas that each of those teams need to bolster. San Jose especially as that team really needs help in goal and in the top four defense position.
If this trade went through, I would consider both the Sharks and the Canucks would jump well ahead of the Kings in both the regular season standings and cup finalist potential.
I would, San Jose won't. Luongo to San Jose has been....well a non-starter.
