I think the Canucks tried to keep Edler and failed to sign him.

I do not think any of the farmhands are ready to step in and take a regular spot on the Canucks. Certainly, Lack should not be pencilled in to back up. Kassian might be rushed along, and Tanev deserves a look, but there isn't a third line center or a regular defenseman hiding on the wolves roster.

Even though I intensely doubt Gillis has time and desire to trade Luongo (in the event of a season) he might be looking to fill holes. Kesler's camp saying he is months away isn't good news. If Gillis cannot find a free agent to sign, he might be forced to look for help via trade. Has anyone offered a center off their roster for Luongo? Immediate help doesn't mean prospects or fringe players, it means your number two or even the number one on your team! Can Toronto offer a viable center? Do they have one?

Abdelkader or Latendresse for Luongo would be great. I think it'll turn out to be Goc, though.
