Correct me if I'm wrong :

Vancouver needs a 3rd line C who could slot in the 2nd line C spot while Kesler is out and a player for the defense to replace the empty spot by edler, yes?
I'm thinking getting a youngish defenseman a part of a Luongo package. Then trading Edler for a young forward preferably someone who could take over from Kesler in a couple of years, when we trade him because I have a feeling he won't resign and will test UFA and take the most money possible. Edler is a stud though. I'd like to get him signed, but would rather not let him walk for nothing.
