    Kempe for Baertschi.

    Speedy winger and countryman to play with Pettersson. Kempe also desperately needs a new start somewhere else.

    Baertschi is better than people think. Canucks fans just like to brag about how bad their team is, when in reality the Canucks core is just fine.

    Can also play wing.

    He desperately needs to get out of LA.

    I think this favors LA but I would still decline. If Carter goes down again or is moved LA would have zero center depth.

    No thanks. Even with his rough start I'd rather have Kempe.

    Would not do this as Kempe can play center and we don’t have enough depth there. Also he was good last year and has struggled the first part of this year so why do you think he needs a change so bad? Well besides you wanting him.

    Baertschi has only had one season of productivity comparable to the ONLY season Kempe has had. Why is LA doing this?

    as long as he gets back to how he looked near the end of last year 100% agreed.

    Either way I would rather take that chance than trade him for Sven

    You guys have got to be ****ing kidding.

    Kempe was more productive in his ONE NHL season than Sven has been in several.

    There's no deal to be had here. Downgrade in every way--age, size, potential.

    What does this do for LA other than sell low, buy high? Don't be cute.

    I'll take the speedy, big, angry, raw center over the middling complementary winger every day of the week. Kempe's got a big future here.

    La is losing, so why wouldn’t they get rid of young speedy centres on cheap contracts. Sure we can’t throw JAD or Valardi in as well

    Look at just about everyones stat line in L.A. Kempe is going through his sophomore slump.

    Laughable rebuttal. Try again. Feel free to address any of my concerns as laid out above.

    If anything, thanks for agreeing with me about the sell low, buy high pint.

    Pardon me.

    Trying to trade an averaged sized 26 year old whose best season is 18 goals, 35 points for a 6'2" 22 year old whose ONLY season is 16 goals, 37 points....can you imagine what would happen if we proposed that in reverse?

    We're starving for young talent. Aside from all the bluster about 'poor Sven', I'm waiting to hear how this benefits LA in any way.

    Kempe needs something good to happen with this coaching change.

    Guy has flashes of brilliance but has been snake bit for half a season.

    Potential is there but he needs to take it to the next level sooner than later.
