Luc Bourdon for Gilbert Brule?

Brule gets a chance to develop in a scoring role...while Vancouver has an abundance of young d men..

Yes, from a CBJ perspective.

Pass from me. At this point Brule doesn't help the Canucks much at all and he really hasn't shown that he's capable of being much more than a 3rd liner at the NHL level.

Good deal for a CBJ fan. Brule hasn't really shown much. He'd be liked in Vancouver but hes overrated due to how good he was in the WHL.

Brule has spoiled himself. He's been given more than enough chances.

Oh he's not even wanted that badly in Vancouver anymore.

Probably more like a 3rd + 5th for Brule.

Maybe Bourdon + 2nd/3rd for Brule + Brassard.

Wrong time for CBJ to trade Brule (his value is at a pretty lowpoint) while in the 'POV' of the Canucks - Bourdon's value has risen (due to his decent enough showing in the few games he's played at the NHL level). CBJ won't trade him at this point.

Last season, I'd say it would required "Bourdon +" to get Brule.

This season, I'd say it would require "Brule +" to get Bourdon.

Next season, who knows....

I'm pretty fascinated by all the Vancouver people obsessed with getting Brule back in Vancouver.

He isn't doing much at the NHL level no matter where he plays. He's had chances with Nash on many occasions so you can't say Columbus isn't giving him his chances.

His trip to the AHL in Syracuse wasn't even that great. He only got called up due to injuries to Modin and Fedorov.

Why should it be a surprise? Alot of hockey fans in Vancouver saw him play for several seasons as a Vancouver Giant - and he played quite well enough to deserve being drafted where he was drafted.

He was rushed into the NHL far too quickly. Blame your previous GM for that mistake. Brule should've started out in the AHL playing major minutes. His development has been significantly affected by this error in judgement.

Not all players progress at the same speed. Some take longer than others.

Well I certainly agree that Maclean can be blamed for that, as well as many other things. Columbus, being a new franchise doesn't have the benefit of older organizations' depth.

Brule was trapped in the "Too young for the AHL, too good for Juniors" for a while. It's easy to say in retrospect that he probably would have been better off staying in Juniors. But at the same time many people were saying he'd be a 1st liner by now. He also had his first attempt at a rookie season cut short by two major injuries. He actually had 4 points in his very first 7 NHL games. We haven't seen the same Brule since then.

I'd like to see Brule sent back down to Syracuse and finish up the year there.

I love how 1 or maybe 2 minutes a game on a scoring line is considered a ''chance''.

No, Bourdon is better than Brule at this point in their careers and we can't afford to wait for Brule to develop.

I was a fan of Brule when he was first drafted but I gotta say that I would not deal Bourdon for Brule.

Since Brule's return from Syracuse he's been very good. His chances have not fallen but he is creating them and shooting the puck (with accuracy) again. Watch some of his recent games and I think you'll see he still has a chance to be very good.

I agree with the poster who said he was brought up too early. Unfortunately the age rule sucks for those almost ready 19 year olds that won't get anything out of playing in the CHL. We have the same issue with Voracek next year. Granted he'll be afforded the luxury of playing down in the lineup which Brule was not. Now Brule is playing down in the line up because he was unsuccessful early trying to play on a scoring line.

I think the original deal is pretty fair.

How? Both players are the same age, were drafted a few picks apart, and one has shown great improvement and is playing well at the NHL level, while the other has done next to nothing since being drafted and has seemingly regressed. I'm not saying Brule is a bust, he's still very young, but Bourdon's value HAS to be higher at this point, I don't see why it wouldn't be.

Sorry, but Brule has been afforded chance after chance to play high in the line up.

Bourdon's looked great filling in for the injured defencemen. I'd hold on to him a little while.

I like both players, but while the Canucks need scoring, I'd prefer it not come in the form of another pint sized centre. We don't have the towering wingers with speed and good hands to play with him.

Bourdon is much better than Brule right now. I wouldn't do that from the Canucks perspective.
