The Canucks will be a much better team, much more likely to be a cup contender again if they Keep Luongo and Schneider as a goal tending duo. Though any team can improve, the Canucks as a team are pretty well set and also have enough prospects pushing to join the team that the team is well set if the team stands pat.

That said offering Umberger to the Canucks is an abolute non-starter. Not only do neither Kesler or Burrows like Umberger as a person, Umberger is overpriced and does not fill a hole on the Canucks, but the most important aspect is that when Umberger was traded by the Canucks he made rude degrading remarks about the Canucks as a team, it's management (then Burke), its fans and the city itself. Basically Umberger burned his bridges behind him and would not be welcome back.

The only Vancouver - Columbus trade I could see happen is:
To Columbus: Anton Rodin
To Vancouber: Cody Goloubev
