We should trade for Suter or Weber.

In response to Beantown Canuck's fanshot I have this idea. I will be called an idiot or a genius. It will depend on your view of what the Canucks may need.


I disagree with the idea of trading CoHo due to the fact in my scenario we will need him to center the second line.Because I want to trade Kesler for either Weber or Suter this summer. Preferably Suter as I think he will come at a cheaper than Weber and I would prefer a stay at home type player.

The Vancouver Canucks have never had a number one d-man and this maybe their chance. And let's face it, the Canucks defense core is filled with second and third pair players who do a great job. But to have that number one guy would be great.

To lose Kesler would be tough, I know....I know. But to be able to get that d-man we are going to have to dangle someone who is not only good but can free up some cap space. Of course this would be a sign and trade by Nashville. I love Kesler but we are going to lose some of the supporting guys in the next two years who maybe as a whole more valuable than one singular player......and we get a number one d-man.

Of course I also think a lockout is coming so all of this fantasy is for nothing.
