I think of all the posts. Stoll is probably the best option. He has struggled but is still a capable 3C.

What does Montreal Canadians have that would interest the Canucks to trade any of these players?
Schroeder isn't avaliable. I like what I have seen, he has revitalized Raymond's Career. Then if he fails as a 3C for the playoffs our backup plan is Lappierre, so no to him either.

And we need Manny, no to him.

None are available, unless there is an overpayment that helps now IMO.

And no. Manny is not available, Canucks fans underestimate how important his face-off wins are
This^

Kesler can't be relied on for all the defensive responsibility, as we saw in 2011 it wears him down too much, having Manny would greatly cut into Kesler's defensive/PK/Faceoff time.

I agree with you, Canuck fans underestimate his importance.
