Van would get a guy to play top line wing and a fourth line center/winger plus a talented Vancouver prospect.
Det would get a gritty right handed Dman to play in the top 4 plus a big prospect who can help down the road.
Of course it would be dependent on Bieksa waiving his NTC. Not sure if value would be close or if it's way off.
That's not a very good deal for the Nuck's. Bieksa is the only physical Dman the Canucks have and he's part of the Canucks shutdown pair and has emerged as real leader on and off the ice. Kassian was traded for Hodgson and was targeted to fill an organizational need. Franzen is a good piece but given his style of play, age and contract I think Franzen is a big risk. Abdelkader is an alright bottom 6 guy but not a Vancouver need and those prospects aren't enough to entice the Canucks to make a move like this
