I can see why the Canucks would try the Schneider move, but I can't see the Sharks biting. And personally I kind of hope they don't. Here's why. I finally love that the Canucks have prospects for almost every position. I wouldn't want to see them start trading them away, even for current needs. I say sign free agents for that, and hang on to your home grown talent. Just look at the prospects we have now Bourdon, Edler, Schneider, Grabner, Raymond, the only real weekness we have for prospects is down the middle at center which is one issue that should definitely be addressed this draft. I agree that they should sign at least one bigger name free agent, and possibly one smaller move as well. But I just hope they don't start trading away possible stars, even superstars, for current needs. Defense looks solid, which is what they want in front of Luongo. As far as Schnieder is concerned, I hope he plays for the Moose this next year and gets one year of pro under his belt, after that back up Lui for 2 years, and then possibly take over the reigns as number one if he's ready….if not sign Lui for as long as it takes. With the wave of prospects the Canucks now have coming up it will free up some much needed cap space down the road once they all start filling up roster spots, much like Ottawa, San Jose, Anaheim and Nashville of this year. They all use home grown players and are able to use their entry level contracts to free up cap space to sign much needed free agents. Anyways, good article, but I hope to Canucks hold on to their up and comers and simply plug some holes by signing a couple key free agents.

Yes he took some bad penalties, but in the second half of the year was just as effective as Cowen, and Linden, plus Bulis has the skills to be a top player, and can kill penalties 9if he's not in the box). Like I said I think Linden will retire, and Cowen will get ton's of offers (like I said Rutuu #2). Do you think Cowen is worth 1.0 mil.? I take Bulis for 1.3 mil. over Cowen for 1.0+ mil.
