Seriously? You think the Canucks wouldn't laugh at this hysterically and hang up?
A goalie we don't need at all... A prospect that doesn't make us better right now and a 2nd round pick when the team isn't rebuilding for our 2nd line center, where the next best center under contract is a 4th liner in Lapierre.
This was just a joke proposal to prove some point, right?
A joke? Are you telling me the Hawks couldn't get Kesler for Crawford, Pirri and a 2nd?
As a canuck fan this is pretty unfair to Chicago IMO, I will counter with:
Chi: Roberto Luongo, Alexander Edler, 2nd round 2013
That IMO is fair and is actually a very beneficial trade for both teams needs.
Definitely better value over the OP's proposal, but now the nucks are losing its best defensive prospect (if you wanna call him a prospect...he's still rounding into the defenseman he can be and is only 25-26. hasn't even touched his potential imo) AND giving up a 2nd rd pick?!?
for the record: I think a "kane-type" player is exactly wut the nucks need. someone on the wing with dirty play-making skills: whitney, hemsky, kane, hossa, jagr, etc. That is the type of guy the nucks need to play alongside Kes and Booth (who are shooters...not passers)
