Kesler to Detroit

I would love to have Ryan Kesler back in his hometown. What do you think it would take to bring him back?



Filppula
Nyquist
Kindl
2nd in 2013



Kesler

Thoughts?

Zero reason to downgrade on Kesler to get a couple of prospects and an upcoming UFA in Filppula.

I dont think that even comes close to getting it done. When Kesler is healthy he is a top 20 centre in the league easily. Who would centre the 2nd line and why would the Canucks take that drop off? Most likely you would have a centre who isnt even remotely close defensively and then they have 2 centres who cant/dont/wont play defense.

If Kesler is going to Detroit, Datsyuk is coming back to Vancouver. 1 for 1 deal

I guess I would be under the assumption that Fil would re-sign long-term with the Nucks or a sign-and-trade would be done prior.

I think the package would have to really blow Gillis' socks off, to be honest. There really isn't any pressing need at all to move Kesler, he is key to the Canucks' success. So I think it would have to be a very, very highly rated prospect and some other immediate help, because otherwise the Canucks just get worse, and they are in win-now mode.

Value is probably close-ish, but the Canucks have zero reason to make this trade.

No reason for the Canucks to trade Kesler unless its for an upgrade.

I know Kesler is a really good player when healthy but don't you think you are overestimating him if you place his value as equal to Datsyuk? Datsyuk is probably in the conversation for top 5 C's in the entire league. I don't think Kesler is quite at that level yet, if he ever gets there.

The only thing that would give us incentive to move Kesler is if Datsyuk or Zetterberg+ is coming back.

Cant see the Canucks having any interest in moving Kesler for anything short of Dats/Zetterberg

Detroit would probably do it. Van probably says no.

This deal is dependent on how good GMs thing Nyquist will be. If Detroit thinks hes a superstar in the making they decline. If VAN thinks hes a superstar in the making they accept. I am not a professional scout so I am not really sure where I peg Nyquist but he has the tools to be the next Z or D (from the wing).

U follow Detroit? Filppula is a VERY good 2-way player, who can play both center/wing. The first season he played full 2-line duty - he gets 66p, +18. The guy plays pp, pk and is very good defensively.

This said - I would do the trade from Vancouvers point of wiew, IF Filppula was signed long-term. He is only 1 year from UFA and Nyqvist and Kindl are not enough to get Kesler. Sign Filppula to an extension 16mill/4yrs and do the trade. From Detroits point of wiew I`m not sure I would!? Kesler wasn`t exactly a force last season...

We have no incentive to trade Kesler for lesser players

If Filppula can play centre well, then him, Smith/Nyquist, 1st.

Kesler ain't moving. There's the whole '3 amigos' thing with Kesler, Burrows and Bieksa. Unless the Canucks are blowing things up none of the core are going anywhere.

You can get the value close as you want, the Canucks aren't about to trade Kesler. Would open a huge void at centre ice, on the PK and amongst the leadership group.

One of those ones you can argue until you're blue in the face. It ain't happening.

Datsyuk is 34. Kesler is 27.

I wouldn't move Kesler for Datsyuk. I know I'll get flamed for this, and I know Dats is the better player, but Datsyuk is getting there in age and is a whole 7 years older than Kesler.

For what I'd want out of Detroit? Smith+Filppula+ for Kesler+Ballard.

Filppula 81 games 66 points. Kesler 77 games 49 points. Both equally good defensively. I wouldn't even trade Filppula for Kesler straight up right now.

What if Vancouver fails to go deep into the playoffs next season? If this happens, I feel the a shakeup may be in order.

Depends on what happens. If it's like last year and they are missing a Sedin and lose to a team that barely lost at all on route to the cup... then i don't think much changes.

If they completely tank, lose the NW div, Schneider sucks and are out in round one then ya... they might look to tweak things.

How old is Jagr this year? Or hell, Whitney.

That's how many years of production you'll get from Datsyuk.

I don't care for this trade idea at all, I just hate how anybody over 30 is suddenly headed for the HFboards retirement home.

I think other Canucks fans underrate Filpulla. I don't think Kesler is as vital to our team as many make it. I would do:

To Detroit:

Kesler

To Vancouver:

Filpulla
Jarnkrok
Nyquist
Conditional 2nd rounder given if Filpulla doesn't re-sign here
