I don't really care who gets brought in, so long as a centre ice is solidified. Of course, with the pending cap crunch, cheaper is better. Not to mention the assets required to trade for a player as opposed to getting them in free agency. So in that respect, Stastny seems the least likely of all options... if the Canucks were going that way, that is.
Stastny is the least likeliest because signings are more probable than trades but IMO Stastny has the most upside of that bunch and is the best fit. Ribeiro would likely produce more but I don't see Gillis giving him the 5 years he's looking for.

Weiss will likely be a target but like Roy, he's on the smaller side and lingering injuries could be a concern.
