I think you're better off setting your sights a bit lower and trading Nielsen for a reliable defensemen.

Chicago might have interest, as many Blackhawks fans want to move Hjalmarsson for a 2nd line center.

As Vankiller Whale stated, the Canucks would love to get him as a 3rd line center, but our only available d-man would probably be Ballard, and he hasn't exactly played great since coming to Vancouver.
