Luongo traded to Toronto for McClement and Toronto's 2013 1st overall pick. There really isn't a lot of room for major changes/upgrades, unless Gardiner comes our way and/or Edler is moved. Some of these totals are conservative (Edler for 5) while others I think are fair (Tanev at 2, Lappy at 1.75 and Higgins at 2.5). Kassian is turning into a very good passer, another year on team on the 3rd or 4th line and I feel he could step into that 2nd line RW playmaking powerforward role we hoped Doan would take.
Why would Gillis trade Luongo for a 4th line center? Unless this is a trade that happens at the draft with the pick being a top 10 pick, I see no reason to dump Luongo for that garbage.

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