Gaunce+1st+Raymond for Plekanec+2nd(3rd?).

Luongo trade it up, say Lupul+Kadri+2nd.

Ballard for Nielsen.

Drop Alberts to the Wolves.

Boom, winning roster with hilarious depth.



With guys like Plekanec, it's not so much what you can get but what you can sustain. Plekanic would be gone sooner than later, due to cap restrictions. Or, he would force someone else out.



Before even getting into trades, I just hope that most of this team is retained heading into the 2013-2014 season. That's the number one goal IMO. Trading Luongo for futures helps facilitate that. Trading Ballard for similar also helps. But bringing in 4m+ salaries does not... not without subtracting elsewhere.



I want this as the Canucks forward corpse in 2013 (63m-65m cap):


D.Sedin-H.Sedin-Burrows
Higgins-Kesler-Hansen
Booth-Schroeder-Kassian
Pinnizotto-Lapierre-Weise
Sweatt


This while retaining Edler... If that can be done while _also_ bringing in Plekanec, great. If not, then I'm not sure why you make the deal...
