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.
Despite all of your clarifications, why do we need a right handed defenseman? Things may work themselves out in that regard. If Garrison can play the right, for example, we'll have a surplus of defensemen all of a sudden. Then there's Tanev, who by many indications could be ready for a top 4 roll. I certainly wouldn't be willing to give up Schneider for a piece we don't really need.
