Because Canucks fans have been pounding their opinion that whoever trades for Roberto will have to pay a very significant price down everyone's throats. But the fact of the matter is that the Canucks have to get rid of Roberto's salary if he isn't contributing to the team as a starter. Otherwise it's dead space that the team cannot use to improve other areas of their club.

But yes, because it's the Canucks, every team is going to have to cough up multiple good prospects to get a deal done.
