Can't believe only 3 other people voted for the Butcher/Quinn for Ronning, Courtnall, Momesso and Dirk deal.

No other trade the Canucks ever made changed the team from sad sack to contender overnight like that one did.

Also, @ John Garrett trade making the list.

I went with Sedin's over Naslund, but just barely.

A case could be made for quite a few trades on this list.

I voted Stojanov for Nazzy.

You're right about lots of good trades, though. I picked the Naslund one, because it's the ultimate something for nothing trade.
Momesso did end Allan Bester's career, so that's something I suppose. :p

Voted for the Luongo trade but totally missed "wizard magic" Consistent, Cup-caliber goaltending is insanely hard to come by for the length of time the Canucks have had it and have it locked up for.

Gotta say the Sedins. The Naslund trade was incredible but he didn't lead them close to a cup. The Sedins trade has given them the backbone of back to back President's Trophy winners, and one win away from the cup...and they didn't *really* give up anything that came back to bite them either.

Gotta say the Sedins .. Not only was it a crafty way of trading, if you look at the rest of that first round (especially the top 10) that got drafted there wasn't a pick that has come close to making an impact in the league as the Sedins have ... The Canucks would not be the team they are today without that trade

If we are looking at 1 trade this excludes the Sedin wizardry.

And when it comes to 1 - you have either the Naslund trade or the Linden trade.

The Linden trade turned into both Sedins via McCabe, and Bertuzzi, and also gave us Jarko Ruutu. An awesome deal that was hugely responsible for our two top lines for the past 10 years.

For me it's the Linden trade. Hurt at the time, but man did that set this franchise for long term success.

I wouldn't say that, because it was a specific targeting of them, and realistically, it came down to one major trade of McCabe and a 1st round pick in 2000 for the 4th overall pick in 1999.

However, I don't think you can call it a trade for the Sedins, since they already held the 3rd overall pick. It was a trade for one of them. If we were to call it one trade I would break it down as:

Bryan McCabe, 1st round pick in 2000 (11th overall, Pavel Vorobiev was taken in a crappy draft) and three 3rd round picks for Daniel Sedin



That's still a good deal, but I would put Naslund ahead.

If you're going to do that then Bert also was the main piece in the Luongo deal. I don't think you can look at trades after the fact as part of the same trade though unless those assets were intended to be used in another trade all along (like the Sedin "wizardry" with the acquired picks)

The Sedins will retire as the two best players in Canucks franchise history, how do you not vote for them?

A lot of strong trades in this team's history, that's for sure.

I went with the Linden trade as it made the groundwork for the future Canucks.

Linden got Bertuzzi and picks which became McCabe which became the Sedins and Luongo

I'm going with the Naslund trade. In getting the Sedins, the Canucks had to lose McCabe (and they would probably still have had one Sedin if they didn't make those trades). However, they got Naslund literally for free.

great trade for the Canucks but there's no need to be inaccurate. he played 151 NHL games before being traded. hardly a rookie.

Because what constitutes the "best" trade is not only the player(s) received but the player(s) given up, and Alex Stojanov was a 4th line goon while McCabe was a pretty good defenseman. Plus Burke technically traded for one Sedin, not both.

Definitely not the Hodgson trade. That one will go down as one of the worst in Canucks history.

Right, wrong wording. Meant to say young player.

Correct. As much as the trade sucked we got

1) The West Coast Express
2) Back to the Playoffs
3) Roberto Luongo
4) One Sedin
5) Don't forget we got Linden back anyway

So many good things from one trade.
