Trash probably was too strong of a description, but these are the same three guys that seem to appear in 95% of proposal's regarding the Habs. It seems like most Montreal fan's can't wait to get rid of these guys, namely RiBeiro and Zednik. Doesn't mean they are worthless, but there's a reason you guys don't want RiBeiro, and it's the same reason I don't want him on my favorite team either.
As for my sig, it's a joke. Bertuzzi was certainly a dissapointment this season, but I still realize that he can be a very valuable asset for the Canucks whether they decide to trade him or keep him.
However offering Ribs & Aebi, who combined still make well below 5.2 Million, and whether you believe it or not... Aebi would be the top horse in your stable when it comes to goalies... Ribs is a quality # 2 who can rack up points... and with the snipers that Vancouver possesses... That can be very beneficial to your club.
I strongly disagree that Aebischer would become the Canucks' top goalie, that's certainly debateable. Even if he was, is he that much better than Auld, Cloutier and Noronen? Not at all, so acquiring him would make zero sense, especially since Cloutier is already signed for next season at $2.5 mil. As for RiBeiro, he's not going to beat out Morrison or Henrik for a spot, so he's got no place on the Canucks. He's not a 3rd/4th line center, he as well makes zero sense for the Canucks. Zednik I could see fitting in with the Canucks and I think he could rebound next season, but his value doesn't come close to Bertuzzi's and adding a couple players the Canucks would have no use for just makes the proposal even worse. In the end, that deal makes no sense from a Canucks' POV and they would be better off to just hang onto Bertuzzi(which I would have no problem with).
