      Forum-specific Rules   07/11/2017

      These are board specific rules for the Trades and Rumors forum designed to provide organization and a better experience for everyone. Please review these rules before posting new threads. 
        THREAD ETIQUETTE   1. Please search for an existing thread before posting. This forum can be very fast moving, so it's understandable if redundant threads are inadvertently posted. In such a case, please use the report feature to request removal of redundant threads.    2. Provide a clearly identifiable topic title so that users can readily understand the content. The title should include any and all teams involved, as well as player names or other personnel involved as appropriate.   3. All trades, signings, rumors and other news MUST include a linkable source. Simply posting the name of the source is not enough. Effort should also be made to copy and paste the full article, or at the very least the relevant portion of text from the source to the first post of the thread. Moderators may remove low-quality threads in favour of high-quality threads. 

      Affixed to the front of your title should be a label that identifies the type of transaction that is taking place. For all trades use [TRADE]. For all signings use [SIGNING]. For all waiver-wire transactions use [WAIVERS]. For all rumours use [RUMOUR].
      For articles or news items that don't fit into the above categories, affix an appropriate label of your choice such as [NEWS], [ARTICLE] or [MISC].   4. When the status of a thread changes a new thread can be created. The new thread should reflect the change and help focus the discussion on current events. e.g. Someone may create a new thread when a rumor becomes a trades. The old thread will be locked by the moderating team.    5. Do not misrepresent the contents of your thread or post false trades or rumors. Trolling will result in a permanent suspension. 

      SOURCES   The following source types are considered INVALID. Any links to posts or threads on other message boards Any links to personal blogs Any news heard on the radio that does not have a link to an audio vault or podcast Any news seen on television that does not have a link to online video Any news spread by word of mouth
      Additionally, certain sources may be be blacklisted due to poor credentials, clear traffic-mongering etc. Blacklisted sources will be posted here. 
      Thank you for your co-operation and please PM the Administrator or Moderators if you have any questions, concerns or suggestions regarding this forum.

Luongo To Submit Shortlist (Chicago, Florida, Toronto, Tampa Bay)

343 posts in this topic

http://tsn.ca/column...eger/?id=394345

Canucks general manager Mike Gillis will speak with star goaltenderRoberto Luongo in the next few days.

Luongo has declared a willingness to waive his no-trade clause - if the Canucks ask him to do so.

It's believed Luongo would prefer moving back to Florida, provided there's interest from either the Florida Panthers or the Tampa Bay Lightning.

The Toronto Maple Leafs and Chicago Blackhawks are also on the 33-year-old goalie's list, although Luongo could have reservations accepting a trade to either team given the fiercely competitive market that feeds off the Maple Leafs and the emotional scars that may still exist from his battles with the Blackhawks.

And Chicago, Toronto and Tampa Bay are in need of stability in goal.

The Leafs will show an interest in Luongo, but his status as an elite goaltender is fading. The team that lands him should expect quality play for the next 3-5 years, which leaves the additional six years remaining on his contract of predictable risk.

So the Canucks may have to take a contract back to sweeten the pot.

If we use the Maple Leafs as the example, perhaps defencemanMike Komisarek (who has two years remaining at $4.5 million per) is asked to be part of such a deal?

The bottom line is that there will be trade interest in Luongo.

How much depends in how creative the Canucks are willing to get to move him.

With Cory Schneider about to become a restricted free agent and a year away out from unrestricted free agency, much of the Canucks' offseason will be spent focused on its crease.

Toronto sucks, I definitely hope we don't trade with them. They have nothing on the current roster or in the farm that we should be interested in.

Then again, we know their draft picks we always be high for years to come.

:bigblush:

"Sources say..."

Are those the same sources that are close to celebrities that reveal all kinds of false nonsense to the press?

If he is going to submit a list, that means Gills officially asked him to waive his NTC. Wouldn't that be the first step in the whole ordeal anyway and the one that should get released to the press first?

1. Gillis asks for the waive.

2. Lu submits list

3. Negotiations begin.

People are jumping the gun again.

Maybe Burke will overpay. Luo and Raymond for Kadri, Schenn and the 5th overall? Pretty much the only 3 players on Toronto that I would be interested in.

I REALLY hope trading Lu is the right decision here. I'm not 100% comfortable with an unproven goaltender as our #1. Not taking anything away from the great play of Schneider, but what makes him different from any other goaltender in that it will be just a matter of time before the fans in this city start calling for his head too? Trading Lu is a high risk move.

I'd tear up if we ended up getting Jake Gardiner, but I'd lose sanity if we got Gudbranson.
