Mike Keenan said on Sportsnet that Boston offered Thornton to the Panthers for Luongo back when Roberto was in Florida, FLA said no.

According to Jeff Marek: Kennan wanted to make the deal but ownership didn't want to take on the Thornton contract.

Interesting....

Bure - Gretzky - Linden...

What could have been...

In my eyes drouin is overrated he can score in the qmjhl but did nothing in last two gold medal games that canada lost. Fox will be better pro than him talk to me in five yrs


   ryan kesler is going to the chicago blackhawks ...       quote me on it

Canadian media loving to pile even more pressure on the Canucks & Luongo?!

Truly shocking news! (It's almost like they're tossing the Leafs', Flames' Oilers', & Jets' fanbases a consolation prize now that their crappy teams have been ousted or something....)

Kassian.... Taylor Pyatt 3.0

Lies. He's more of a Steve Bernier. Hopefully his talent level goes up so he can become like a Taylor Pyatt.

You think Schneider would've developed as well as he has without the protection Luongo has allotted him?

This city would've crucified him if he was the starter in 2008-2009...

Not surprised Keenan wanted to make the deal. So glad that FLA management said no.

I doubt Boston would've won the cup last year. That trade (Thornton) changed the NHL like most blockbusters do.

- The three pieces in that trade changed Boston and San Jose built around Joe.

And I think we would have been a much different team. Luongo helped show a few players that were coming here that this organization was going for a winning one, and would pay for who they thought would give them the chance.

You really think would have Edmonton would have Traded Gretzky to us, without one or both of those players being in the Deal?

Wow if that Happened we would not be the Team we are today, without Lu we would have been starting to become a contending Team now, We would have Re-Built our Organization.

Luckily we were Able to Get Lu and turn our Team in the Right Direction.

The "middle of the night phone call" fiasco?

Gretzky was almost an UFA signing...

I was Talking about the 88' Situation, where Pat Quinn Almost made a Deal to get him from Edmonton, I heard the Reason he wasn't Traded here is Because we couldn't come up with the Money that L.A did.

I agree, this city is relentless. And also, Cloutier would still be our goaltender.

Benning will be fired next year. Hope he enjoys screwing around for a few months. I just cant believe this. Another injured BC player. We just got rid of garrison. Seems like the canucks and linden just wanted any BC born player. Doesn't matter if hes good or not. We don't need another Linden to get us to game 7 of the Stanley cup and lose. We need someone to win us a cup.

 

5 million a year for Vrbata? 6 million for Miller? Kesler for Bonino and 24th instead of 10th pick or one of their top prospects? Garrison for scraps?

ive already lost faith in JB. Ive never EVER had this bad of a feeling about management.

Yeah, I'm just stating that a hypothetical line of Bure-Gretzky-Linden was in fact possible without a trade and, depending on which version of the story you adhere to, actually almost became a reality.
