WWYDW: The Expendables

Hey, some things happened. The Ottawa Senators and New York Rangers completed a trade. The Vancouver Canucks announced another pair of signings. That's all so very neat.

Now we're just waiting for that big trade to happen. You know, the one the Canucks are rumoured to be exploring the market for. Rumour has it, they want to land a second line winger in specific. Now, to do that, they're going to have to part with somebody. Maybe even a few somebodies and the odd draft pick. There's only so many roster spots, after all.

So, I'm asking you, which player(s) are you most willing to part with to land that marquee name in a trade. As always, try to be reasonable. You're not landing Gabriel Landeskog for Jannik Hansen.

The Vancouver Canucks, Evander Kane and the Social Contract

The Vancouver Canucks have, for all intents and purpose, withdrawn from free agency. That hasn't stopped them from exploring the market for marquee names that can bolster the club's short and long-term fortunes, though.

As the dust settles on the July 1st spending spree, the Canucks are rumoured to be exploring the trade block for the next piece to their puzzle. Vancouver wasn't connected using specific or determinate language to the Buffalo Sabres' Evander Kane, but his skill, size and availability (Sabres general manager Tim Murray is tiring of Kane) make the connection all too obvious. Stop me if you've heard this before, but the Canucks might be in the hunt for Kane.

Canucks Army Monday Mailbag: July 18th

The Canucks locked up a goalie for exposure in the expansion draft, added to their depth in Utica and announced the signing of Michael Carcone. As far as the middle of July goes, that qualifies as a doozy of a week. What wild antics will the Canucks get up to in time for next week's mailbag?!

Well, they would hope to have added a second line winger in that time. Preferably an established goal scorer with a little sandpaper to their game. So too would they like to offload one of their less than desirable contracts. Them and every other team though, right?

Well, let's talk about some of what they've done in the meantime and some of what they plan to do in future. You've got questions, I've got answers. You know the drill.
