So we trade a starting goalie for a top 4 d-man and a prospect?
The Canucks would like a 1st or 2nd line RW and a bottom six centre, but do not NEED any forward. The Canucks do need an RD which Coburn can play plus the team needs to reduce salary by 2013-14 season.
Current Canuck centres are Henrik, Kesler, Higgins if needed, Schroeder, Malhotra, Lapierre and Ebbett.
Current Canuck players and NHL ready prospects able to play top six are Daniel, Henrik, Burrows, Booth, Kesler, Higgins, Raymond, Hansen, Kassian and Schroeder plus a slight possibilty of Rodin and Jensen. That is 12 players for six roster spots.
I believe Luongo will emerge the stronger goalie over the long run so would rather see a Luongo/Lack combo in goal.
Laughton is a decent 2nd or 3rd line centre prospect and though the Canucks are in a win now mode, our prospect depth also needs addressing.
