Yes, anything can happen but some times we have to be realistic. Looking around the league at some of the lineups the top teams are icing makes me truly believe the Canucks don't have a chance.
So you'd rather the Canucks give up lesser assets for lesser players and then only have a hope and prayer that they can do something...

If the Canucks really think they aren't in a position to make a run this season than they shouldn't be looking at bandaid solutions such as Goc. It makes even more sense to make a bigger trade that can help the team now and in the future if this is case. Goc type players are perfect acquisitions for teams who are close and need to add depth and a more specialized player to get them over the hump. The Canucks aren't there.

I'd rather Gillis look to make a bigger deal and put this team into a better situation than just bandaid the situation and hope/pray for a turn around next season.

There is something wrong with the makeup of this team, and a small trade or change isn't going to fix it at this point.
