Maybe about something like

Roberto Luongo

Gets their goalie at the cost of Kadri, Reimer and a protected 1st.

Ryane Clowe
Nazem Kadri
Top 10 Protectes 1st (Toronto)

Addresses their need of a top-6 forward, while adding some youth to the organization.

San Jose
Mason Raymond
James Reimer
Vancouver 2nd 2013

Buys low on a winger who can produce similarly to Clowe, as well as a 2nd.

San Jose also gets a very capable backup, or at least another lower end starter to compete with Niemi for a 1a/1B role.

Keep in mind Clowes on a 1 year deal.

Raymonds value is at an all time low, but he still gives them speed in a 2nd/3rd line role (albeit a downgrade overall from Clowe).

Reimer could very well be the starter (or at the very least give Niemi a run for his money).
Gives San Jose the benefit of having 2 starting goalies (although low end starters) instead of just 1 low end starter.

The 2nd is self explanatory but even at the deadline i dont see Clowe going for significantly more.
