To Tampa Bay:
10th overall pick
Not a bad offer just not before dealing for Varlamov the Avalanche were pressing hard and offering up the 11th overall pick and Gillis wasn't enticed. I think you are adding too much dead weight in a deal with Schneider to try and anchor him down. I really doubt Schneider gets moved this off-season unless it is a real one sided offer.
No I don't want to run that was using to show the depth we would have probably have Manny and Bitz as the 13/14 forward switching in when the Coach would decide it made sense. As for Luongo's value and I can tell you are a Canuck hater as you keep thinking That we will be lucky to get a small return for him. Look at what a Tampa Bay fan offered in return Connolly + a 1st. Imo more value than Aulie and Connolly. I would take that as can always move the 1st for a good depth D. Eventhough yes Canucks are in a pickle atm with Schneider and Luongo. Teams like Tampa will pay a fair share for either as they are the difference between the Play-offs and fighting for 1st overall. If Luongo is dealt it will be for a fair price no matter what Canuck hater say.
Yes They do probably have more value I think I over valued Myers (+ I've never been a big Sedin fan). They could play for 10 more years and probably be productive. But I believe they will be retiring at the age of 36/37. I looked at the trade like the Goligoski for Neal+Niskanen type trade. Probably could add someone else for Buffalo to even out the trade (ie. Gerbe/pick)
Lou being moved the Canucks are not in power position. Schneider being moved they are. I don't see how this is being lost on so many people. Lou is a great goalie, 9 years at 5.5 who has a no movement clause and speculation says he will only move to a team in Florida. How is Vancouver in power with moving that?
Schneider will require huge overpayment, I agree. Do I like it no.
CBJ fans might be cranky, but this is the way to change the team and get a solid core.. already an awesome D forming if they take Murray at 2 and this addresses other spots and gives another pick which could be packaged to move up or get depth scoring.
