Canucks Rumors and Ideas!
As far as I have heard there are not just three teams in on Forsberg and Vancouver is definately interested. Apperantly there were Vancouver scouts in the crowd last night at the Flyers game and Forsberg would definately waive his no trade clause to play with his old friend Naslund. I am positive that the canucks would have to give up Sami Salo in this deal and most likely Cory Schneider as well. I am guessing one more player or draft pick but I don’t know, maybe Bulis.
He has been playing better of late. If the Canucks were able to pull this off I would go after Brent Sopel as a replacement for Salo, he can play the power play and adds more of an edge than Salo, also he played his best hockey in Vancouver.I am positive we could get him for a 2nd or 3rd rounder. I feel the Canucks are one or two pieces away from making a big run. If they dont get Forsberg, which probably wont happen, they will most likely go after someone like a Smolinsky, or a Brad Stuart they can use help in both areas.
Some line up changes tonite are Reid in for Bulis, and Moran in for Chouinard. Also Rick Rypien was sent down for rehab.
