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):
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...
I don't really think it's possible to have Plekanec on our roster if the cap is $60 mil. It
be possible with $63 mil, but I think Booth would have to be traded away to afford it.
And if we get Plekanec, do we play him on the 2nd line and move Kesler to the wing, or do we have him center the 3rd line preventing Schroeder from getting a chance to play?
