CRAZY | Trade suggestion from the Sportnet Panelists involving the Hughes' brothers causing consternation

The Canucks have announced they were trending toward a retool and since moving the latest team captain Bo Horvat and the recent hiring of Rick Tocchet.

The Canucks were in New Jersey last night where they suffered a hard battled 5-4 loss in the extra frame. Jack Hughes, Quinn's brother, played great and managed 2 goals and an assist. The panel team in place suggested a trade to reunite both brothers that's causing quite a consternation. Here's what they suggested:

To Vancouver:

- Dawson Mercer
- Simon Nemec (2022 2nd Overall Pick)
- 2023 1st Round Pick


To New Jersey:

- Quinn Hughes


The Canucks would definitely fill a lot of their needs in this trade. They'd get a potential future number one defenseman in Simon Nemec. Dawson Mercer has proven to be an effective player at both ends of the ice in his second pro year, can play both the wing or down the middle. The Devils' 1st Round Pick will most likely be a late selection to the Devils' recent success.

All of that for the Canucks' franchise defenseman selected back in 2018. Considering the direction the Canucks are taking, would you consider moving him? Reuniting all three Hughes brothers in New Jersey would definitely set them for a long time, especially since the elders have proven to be amongst the most skilled at their position.
