Ah yes, their playoff troubles.

They've lost to the eventual Cup champs 3 years running; sure the series against LA last year they didn't show up the well in the first two games, at least, but Quick played out of his mind and we were missing our best sniper.

I agree though, the Canucks need a gritty top6 player, but those are hard to come by and with the teams that are rumored to be int he running we may not even have the option of getting a player like that. I do believe we need to hold onto him until we can get an impact player - one that fits in a top 6/9 role - in the package for Lu.
