That's really stupid if true.

We need the help now.

Ballard is 27 and signed for 4 seasons, that is completely worth it.

5 year NHL pro >> 25th overall pick 3-4 years away from even making a slight impact, let alone on D where we need a revamp.

Perhaps about Bieksa and the 45th?

Wonder why Vancouver wishes to wait until the 25th pick to announce, if that's the case? Odd. Maybe there's a player they're really high on they'll wait to see...

25th + dump in Bernier, that would be excellent!

Could also be the league, to keep the excitement going.

Is Vancouver looking to move D-man Kevin Biesksa? That's the word on the floor

Funny how ignorant Taylor and Pratt are about this player. Hilarious, really.

Now the lineup for the Mike Gillis glory hole forms that way --->

But one bad thing is that the Canucks dont get to pick until the 4th round.
Maybe they will trade Bieksa, SOB, or someone else for picks.
Yeah, you'd have to think one or more of Bieksa, SOB, and Bernier could be traded to get us into the 2/3 rounds.

If it's Bernier, that is epic pwnage. EPIC PWNAGE!

Bernier really had no place on this team and was the odd man out. Plus he was expensive dude.

Dude, way to go Gillis. o/

Gillis would be my hero if he manages to swap out Bieksa for Ballard.

So wait; we only used around $2 million worth of salary space on Ballard if true? My God.

Strickland is usually money, if he's reporting smoke...oi. Wonder what Bieksa could fetch?

Gillis is awesome. Honestly, I can't believe this guy is basically a rookie GM.

Anyone believe that MG is making sure he can acquire another pick before making Ballard trade official?

Edit: SC says Bernier +25 - Ballard

That would make sense - makes him look less desperate to dump him.
