Agree or Disagree

Dave Nonis needs to make a trade to keep up with Nashville, after their signing of Forsberg.....agree or disagree?

I think if he can somehow figure out a way to get a decent player that will help our team without 'sacrificing the future' i'm all for it !!!!

I still say GET GELINAS :D

My my... how quick hubris catches us. If the canucks falter, i blame this post.

it has been how many games since Conroy joined Calgary and now suddenly the Canucks have to top Forsberg too? like wtf...

I disagree
- I do not see a single trade for any player that will make Vancuover as good as Nashville is right now.
- Also western conference teams should not only worry about Nashville as Detroit are looking to make another Cup run come this playoffs.

I agree with Jimbuff, one trade isn't going to make Vancouver as good as Nashville.
That said, if Naslund heats up for the playoffs, that might take some of the pressure off.

Datsyuk and Zetterberg have yet to show up in the playoffs. Detroit is at risk!

grey wall- It's a question of curiosity for me. I think the Canucks could be just fine the way they are, but a couple 'minor' additions may not hurt. Is this team good enough for a deep playoff run? Or should we stay with what we got and look at it as perhaps a 2-3 year plan to attain Lord Stanley? It is kind of a tough call when they are sitting in 3rd in the West. We are close to 'going for it'.

The Canucks have repeatedly sold out their future for supposed runs at the Stanley Cup.

I like this team, and yes Luongo and some good luck could bring a long playoff run, but I don't think the Canucks should fancy themselves as Cup contenders this season.

I'd much rather see the Canucks develop Bourdon, Rahimi, Edler and Grabner, and keep their draft picks. Build up their system through the draft, a la Nashville and Buffalo. There's a reason those teams are so successful.

If the Canucks could parlay a Jason King or even an Artem Chubarov for immediate help, even just for a rental, then go for it.

I do think this will be an interesting summer for the Canucks. I think it is time for the organization to look at freeing up cap space in terms of Ohlund and Morrison, and finding adequate replacements via free agency.

Well said, Joe. Would you include Naslund in the 'freeing up salary space' category? I would actually eliminate him before Morrison.
It looks like Salo will be done here as well.
You're right, they should model themselves after Buffalo. However I'm sure any help Nonis acquires at the deadline won't cost him anything more than Jan Bulis or a 3rd round draft pick, oherwise he won't even bother.

If the Canucks seriously want cap space they could deal Luongo to Boston:)

Ha! No way! We'll keep him for a few years at least! He loves it here!
You guys need a new coach!!!
