Don't like the Flyers trade too much, doubt it's a trade either team would make. With adding Luke I don't think getting Brayden would come easy from the Flyers, Briere has been a huge factor in the Playoffs, and on the Canucks side Elder while in need of a new contract, is still very much needed on the Canucks' blueline. On top of that the Canucks are adding in some good pieces in Lack, Schroeder, and Booth which in a deal involving Elder for just a change in positions, is not ideal. Both sides say no.

Second trade neither team likes as well. Florida is very happy with Versteeg and don't value Luongo the same way Canucks fans do. While a return of Versteeg for Luongo would be solid, adding in a guy like Hansen really hinders it IMO, and I know the Panthers don't want to move Steeger for Luongo.

Both trades are trades that none of the teams would be inclined to make.
