Per Vancouver sportswriter Jason Botchford: "The Canucks cant trade Kesler without getting a centre in return. They just dont have enough depth at the position."
That's why it makes so much sense that Weiss be a major part of that package. No matter how disappointing he may have been so far, he was a solid 1C and a captain and would be a solid 2c. Andersen gives them a 3c they desperately need as well, and helps to balance contract numbers. I'm good adding Pulkkinen or Jarnkrok, and an early pick.http://www.theprovin...5934/story.html
There is another article that I cannot find that states why Gillis cannot afford to overvalue Kesler in this trade, but I can't find it.
Weiss is light years ahead of anything Sutter has to offer.
