Doesn't make sense....

I disagree - but, I'd consider trading talent + solid contracts for a risky upside

Trade Edler + Pyatt for Bouwmeester (youth for youth)

Factors - JBouw (Western native, wants out of Florida, has history with Bobby Lou, PP specialist, Big offensive D, likely would love to play in Canada in front of Luongo and the Olympics where he'll likely have a serious shot at being on the team)

Factors - Edler (under contract at 3.5m-over 4 yrs a big +, realistic replacement of JBouw's talent at a discount)

Factors - Pyatt (a big LW'r that could assist Florida since that is probably their weakest side, Pyatt's contract demands would suit Florida and he's expendable from the Canucks lineup, top-6 forward with potential)

why would Florida have any interest in Pyatt? they'd be better off taking a deal like what Buffalo got for Campbell (1st + Bernier) as they get 2 assets they can rebuild with - which would be obvious for a team that is out of the playoffs and dealing one of their top players.

IMO if JBo hits the market, his trade value will be very high because there will be several teams wanting him... I think that a reasonable deal would be Edler+Raymond+ (yea, huge price, but I think that FLA can generate enough interest in JBo to get a huge return).

They will definitely have zero interest in guys like Pyatt who, if they really wanted, they could make an offer to as a UFA in the offseason - since they aren't going to be doing anything this year anyways.

the players on the canucks that would interest FLA:

- Edler, O'Brien, Bieksa, Raymond, Hansen, Kesler, Schneider, Hodgson, Grabner... IMO those are the only assets, besides draft picks, that would really interest a team like FLA if they were to trade JBo... and the return pkg could be huge... too much for a team playing well to give up IMO.

That might just be the best trade proposal from Ottawa and Vancouver i've seen yet.
