Most would value Kassian the highest, although personally I like Jensen the best.
Schroeder is the most expendable, due to position(Henrik and Kesler lock down our top-6 centre depth), so ideally I would like to do something around Schroeder+ for Rundblad, although I'm not sure what Phoenix's centre depth is like. Kassian/Jensen+ I would make available for Gormley.
Anyways, if all you're looking for is established top line talent, I don't think the Canucks have the expendable pieces.
Krejci for Yandle has been discussed in the past, I think, with moderate success.
Yeah, I'm not sure about the values of Canucks forward prospects; I'm sure some of these you mentioned would make productive players in the future. But for Gormley or Rundblad, we would prefer to package them to get a true high-end forward, which is the one thing that would motivate us to move either one.
Krejci is also interesting, but I don't think I would move him one for one with Yandle. That's just my feeling, other fans may disagree.
