Not sure that I'd do it, though.
Grabovski and Kessel don't play well together, and we have no other 2nd line centers to play with Kessel, so...no thanks.

Kesler is much more valuable to the Canucks than Kessel.
Kesler is bigger, more physical, much better defensively, is a center who is good at faceoffs, and a leader. He's also signed to a pretty darn good contract until 2016.

We already have two pure offensive guys in the Sedins, we don't need to sacrifice our best defensive forward and our center depth to add more of an offensive punch.
