Lateral move is lateral.

Vancouver traded Grabner because Raymond does what he does but better

Vancouver has 9 Dmen signed (1 or 2 have to go)

Vancouver is going to trade Bieksa to sign Raymond

And as mentioned lateral move is Lateral

Bryan Little plays RW nowadays, actually.

But this trade, though I guess nice doesn't solve anything

i would do it as a nucks fan because I feel that Little has a higher ceiling than Raymond, but it is a step back.

Little is Right Wing not center, though he can play Center. I rather keep Little though.

The proposal is great in terms of value but Raymond has proven he can click with Kesler... Little would be a question mark when it comes to clicking with Kesler or the Twins. I guess its a high risk + high reward type of move for Vancouver as Little could work out being better than Raymond with either line or a lot worst. Probably not worth the risk as Raymond has shown signs of improving and odds are will get only better. Little, on the other hand, showed a lot of promise 2 years ago but had a off year (only real reason he's value would be @ Raymond's level). Basically 2 players with similar values right now but 1 trending up + has chemistry with teammates vs 1 trending down (but likely to bounce back) with no chemistry. Not a great move for the 'nucks.

As for ATL side, they probably have no reason to do this either. Little is younger than Raymond (22 vs 24), has 4 years left in RFA (vs 3) and realistically has more offensive upside than Raymond. Doesn't make a lot of sense for them to move him at this point. More so there's no guarantee anyone there will click with Raymond.

Ok thanks, I knew Little could play RW but i thought he was more suited to playing center

Value wise the deal is fine, we could argue who's better now or who has more potential but realistically i think both teams like their guy better and wouldn't make this deal

i am sure if this deal came up Thrashers would not accept, but Little will. Good thing for the Nucks is that Little had a slightly disapointing season so he will not recieve a lot in arbitration if he is going because I think he is rfa (off the top of my head). This will allow the Canucks to upgrade a player in the bottem 6 in the bieksa deal.

Little has the higher upside imo. I would rather keep him.
