Finger would be in their top 4 right now...after the top 2 in Edm it's pretty thin.

Still the length of finger's contract is too much.

All Burke needs to do is send him to the minors and its done. Don't need to take Moreau back.

Nope. From the owners on down, the Canucks just won't have anything to do with the Leafs as long as Burke is there, so no Canucks - Leafs trade what so ever.

In order to see Finger traded to Vancouver I was going to suggest Edmonton trade Moreau to the Leafs, then the Oilers flip Finger to the Canucks for Hodgson, but the Oilers won't deal with the Canucks as long as Gillis is Vancouver's GM so that won't work either.

There is just no way that either the Oilers or the Leafs are going to be able to give the Canucks the Finger.

No, the funny thing is that Horcoff is a top 6 forward on oilers NOW. I dont see him taking Bozak or Grabos spots as a top 6 centre. Maybe if Grabo moves to the wing.

Top 4 right at this moment? Yeah I will give you that. However that is only because Souray and Smid are out for the season. Suddenly Finger wouldn't be in the top 4 if they are healthy. Add in the fact Grebeshkov and Staios being traded(and I will leave Lubo out since he brought in Whitney) and suddenly Finger isn't in the top 6. Now, since Edmonton traded both Grebs and Staios in "futures" moves, why would they take back a defenceman in a move that would have a negative result towards their future?

Edmonton isn't winning anything next year so they could do MUCH worse than let Moreau and guys like Nilsson in their last year of their contracts ride the season out. Besides, a guy like Moreau could really help Edmonton out in the quest for Larsson.
