Really it's up to Dubnyk to step up and be better than he has been this year.

Canucks AHL farm team fans were saying that he has more potential than Cory Schnedier who also dominated the Ahl.

I think it would be smart if they targeted him now before he has 2 or 3 seasons of sub 2.00 GAA and 920+ save% because by then his trade value will be really high.
There are a lot of guys we should've targeted and whose to say we didn't? But after what happened to Schneider and the asking price from Vancouver there is a good chance that they wouldn't even trade him to us anyway.

Why even spew this crap? All she said is she is sad to leave her hometown, but excited to come to her husbands hometown and it's now spinning into a Pronger situation.

A 3rd is pretty reasonable for a guy who might really help you here.
Pretty much how I'm looking at it. A guy that when dealt for Bernier some said might end up better than Bernier. Gave up a 3rd for a position we are weak at. Really not much risk.
