A Center who can play 3rd line minutes but you can't just have him being a defensive specialist, with Kesler inconsistancy and inability to stay healthy, getting a defensive specialist is useless and won't do anything to help this team. We had hoped that Schroeder could've been this but he's not getting the job done and Ebbett isn't good enough either, while he is playing well now, it won't last

A RH top 4 D. As much as I like Tanev he's not a top 4 D at this point and Edler needs a true stay at home physical defenseman who can cover for Edler when he pushes the pace. Edler is closer to Ehrhoff of 2011 than Edler of 2011.

The problem with the Canucks this season is that there are too many players playing in roles that they are unable to play at the level the Canucks need consistantly. Whether this is out of position or playing higher in the lineup than they should be. Filling the two above spots will help push players back to their natural positions and correct roles within the roster.
