Canucks poised for a move?

After last nights game and the big splash by Calgary, Vancouver looks like they are poised for a big trade. It looked to me like an audition for the two call ups Reid and Moran and they did very well. This is bad news for Morrison however. He seems to be the odd man out and is the most likely trade bait. The Canucks need a d man and a center to play with Naslund, (Forsberg) and if the Canucks are serious it will take more than just Mo but this is what it would look like,

Morrison, Schneider, 2nd rdp/ Forsberg

Even if this trade does not work out the canucks will shed Forsberg’ salary at the end of the year and they may be able to go after one of the big two from Buffalo this summer. I would even give up their first rounder seeing as they have three second rounders.

Although this is all just speculation on my part, Forsberg is rumored on the move in the next few days and the Canucks seem to be the ones making roster space.

A couple of other possibilities are Modin and Smolinski. If I were Nonis I would also go after Sopel.

    still too much for peter! when he gets injured during, or prior to the playoffs, and he will, we lose Morrison, Schneider, and a second pick for absolutely nothing!
    I think a straight up Forsberg for Kesler's rights NEXT SEASON is a better way to go.

    Forsberg has been traded unless you havent heard…Nashville got him for Upshall, Parent, 1st, 3rd rd DP's

    I heard the canucks are the only one intersted in Todd Bertuzzi but i dont know why?

    Maybe
    Bertuzzi, Allen, 4th Rd Dp
    for
    Krajicek, 2rd DP, Genoway (good Prospect)

    That is quite possibly the worst trade I've ever seen in my life.

    Why would the Panthers trade Luongo and a 4th rounder for Auld a 2nd rounder and someone I've never heard of (and probably never will hear about).  This makes no sense.  Please everyone, stop and think before you post a trade, it saves us all a headache.

    What are you talking about, i said that about Bertuzzi not Luongo, 4rd for Auld, 2rd

    Bertuzzi, Kolnik, Allen
    for
    Cooke, Genoway, Tremblay

    This totally makes sense and it's a trade for the canucks, help on D and a buddy for Nazzy Genoway is a great (not blue chip), but good prospect…???
