The team getting the star player almost always wins. Anyways whatever, but if you are not going to give up any quality roster players them you need to give more futures. It's give and take. Vancouver is filling your biggest need, are you filling Vancouvers biggest need?
IMO our biggest need is a #1 centerman. Our goaltending may very well pan out. Reimer is a quality goalie. I'm all for giving him another chance.
With that being said, no sense trading a number of great assets for a player with a horrific contract. That cap hit of 5.3 until he's 42 is just terrible. No team will deal you what you think he may be worth. You can blame your GM for that one.
I'm always up for counter offers of course and intelligent conversation between passionate fans.
