Pretty please let us trade Ward for Kesler. Surely his 6.3m hit and only 2 years left would be appealing to Vancouver?

Obviously pieces would need to be added, but you get my jist
Lack>>>Ward. Canucks won' t touch that contract.

Dipietro was a good goalie prior to his injuries. Look at his stats compared to the rest of the league the year he made the playoffs

He had ONE good season with a .919 save %, he was also bad both years he was in the playoffs.

He was never a good goalie, injuries aside.

Chris Mason, Ray Emery and Huet had similar save percentages that year. He was also 16th in GAA.

A GM would surely take a chance on him if the right opportunity came up, nobody thought Luongo would get traded and look what happened.
That's true but I just don't think the stuff Ward did almost 10 years ago is relevant to what he is today. His last good season was 10/11, only downhill from there. If I were a GM I wouldn't come anywhere near him. To risk paying .900 Sv% goalie 6.3M for two years.. Can't imagine what opportunity would be right to take that kind of risk.

^ I don't disagree with you, but stranger things have happened.

Well I think this means Ward's days are numbered, I wonder who is interested.

I'm not sure if it means much for Ward, I don't think his contract is too moveable at this point. I personally have a lot of faith in Khudobin, but Khudobin at a very modest $2.25m with a rising cap doesn't create a situation where they "have to" move Ward, but I think it's more likely it continues the platoon situation.
