WITH PAVELSKI GOING DOWN FOR 32 GAMES, THE SHARKS FEEL THAT MASON RAYMOND CAN FILL A VOID, AS WELL AS DEREK JOSLIN DEVELOPING INTO A BRIGHT FUTURE WITH THE SHARKS.

The Canucks added some forward depth in recent trades and felt we could move Raymond to get a quality young defenseman such as Demers. We sought a young mobile right handed dman for our bottom pairing who can grow into a larger role in the future. We also reduce our payroll in order to explore other transactions.

The Canucks are now listening to offers on D Jason Garrison and possibly Kevin Bieksa. For Bieksa we want a top 6 forward. For Garrison we would consider offers involving a very good prospect and draft pick(s), or to combine him with a forward for an upgrade at the forward position. We are also interested in a solid, inexpensive backup goaltender.
