That being said, if we can score a couple higher-end young pieces in the deal we could feasibly re-tool on the fly (pending better drafting) and narrow our window for another run at a championship.

This season I'll honestly be happy if we make the playoffs.
Agreed. If we can get an impact asset that helps is win the Cup now, great. If we can get back some quality prospects that keep our window open a bit longer and allow us to quickly retool, great. But we may also end up dumping him for Bozak and Franson which, IMO, would turn us into the Calgary Flames.

The Canucks will continue to suck until the day Benning, Weisbrod, Linden, and Desjardins are all fired.
