This is not a thread to start trade arguments.

But Im curious what our starting lineup would look like if we had them and not the forwards that are in their spots.

Hodgson would probably have the second line center spot locked because Kesler is injured too much.

And I could see Grabner being on the second or third line.

Booth-Hodgson-Kesler
Raymond-Schroeder-Grabner
Higgins-Lapierre-Hansen

Hamhuis-Bieksa
Edler-Tanev
Garrison-Alberts

Luongo
Schneider

Or something along those lines. I wonder where this comes too in terms of the cap?

Hodgson's dad wouldn't stand for that lineup.

Grabner would probably be the doghouse more often than not.

Because it wouldn't have been the best lineup we could ice. You don't build a team around a dad's demands. Plus, you want Kesler playing their best forwards and Hodsgon sheltered. Can't do that with them on the same line.

Btw, you realize Kesler has played wing effectively before (with Sundin), right?

As for whether you would put him on the wing and give Hodsgon the center spot...highly debatable, I wouldn't...but Kesler on the wing is definitely doable.

If Kes could play on the wing then I don't think it was worth keeping him in the center spot just to prove a point to Mr. Hodgson.

That is what should have been done.

That's right. Your selfish game of "what if" set off a horrific butterfly effect that forever changed the Canucks roster for the worse!

Right!? That's the worst part of all. Cody's dad insisted we move Henrik.

If we had kept Grabner we likely would never have gotten Booth.

Casual pairing Campoli-Bieksa would be hilarious to watch.

Nono pretty sure Cody's dad wanted Kesler out, but since AV prefers "hard working forecheckers" AV suggested Henrik to move
