This guy at The Globe and Mail has been reporting some interesting rumours about the Canucks, anyone care to discuss?

Here's his Twitter page:!/Vanstrom_BC

Now to the rumours..

1. Cory Schneider - Multiple Rumours:

To New Jersey with a 1st round pick for Zach Parise
- if Gillis could actually pull this off I would go insane, Parise is awesome and him on the 2nd line with fellow American Kesler would be a dream.. imagine our PP!

To Florida for David Booth + picks
- not too sure about this one, Booth's contract is too high for his skill level (so far).. he hasn't shown he can be a top scorer in the NHL yet

To Tampa Bay for Steve Downie + picks
- ya know I actually wouldn't mind this, Downie is a really gritty guy that can score.. he would be a great 2nd or 3rd liner for us

To Toronto for Nikolai Kulemin + picks
- not feeling this one.. Kulemin has great hands, but he's too soft physically

2. Canucks openly shopping Ballard, Hodgson, Raymond, and Samuelsson league-wide:

Not really a surprised about Ballard, Raymond/Samuelsson I could live without, and Hodgson I wouldn't mind letting go of if we could get someone decent in return (i.e. package him with someone else for a 2nd liner).

3. Canucks interested in Hemsky:

I don't like this one... Hemsky is good when he's healthy, but once again another soft euro that doesn't hit and is very injury prone.

4. Chris Campoli:

According to Vanstrom, Gillis has been planning to offer Campoli a contract since early July. Yesterday when Campoli was officially deemed UFA he said Gillis will be contacting him within the next 24 hours. As crazy as it sounds, I would actually take this guy. If we can get him cheap he would be a great 5-6 defenseman.

Anyways, that's all I'm going to post for now.. those are the only major ones mentioned so far. I will update when more are reported.

I don't understand why alot of ppl (especially Canuck fans) are so high on Cory Schneider. I don't see anything with him that i wouldn't take another goalie for. Bernier, Quick, Bobrovsky. If any of those teams would really give up any of those players and picks for him they are plain insane and should be fired period.
Really.? then i would suggest you haven't seen him play.
Either that or you are with flyer management as they for years now haven't been able to recognize a top young goaltending prospect.
Many in Canuck land would be just fine with Lou leaving town and Cory getting the #1 spot for the Canucks.

The kid wins at every level and so far he has shown no sign he can't or wont win at this level.
