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

343 posts in this topic

Why are you so adamant that he won't go to Tampa? Of all the teams on his list, the Lightning are the most likely team Luongo would waive his no-trade to.

I think he's headed to Toronto because if there's anything he wants for the rest of his career it will be winning a cup for Toronto, TB has no history and that's where he'll retire but who knows where he wants to play.

I think he mentioned Toronto because deep down he's choked at Vancouver and the 2nd best thing to playing to Vancouver would be Toronto.

He knows what Gillis thinks of Burke anyway.

Schenn and Kulemin.

Toronto retains depth and solve their goaltending problem for 5 years.

Not sending Luongo to Toronto. Period.

See what I did there?

Oh, and Mats Sundin isn't signing with the Canucks. Period.

Mats Sundin had already signed with the Cauncks. Period.

If Luongo's not going to Toronto, he should go to Philadelphia. Period.

(Sighs.)

You think the Bolts would give up Hedman for Luongo............and why exactly would we want Ohlund back? Care to explain?

Reading through the thread I came across many people expressing their desire to not trade Luongo because of what he has done...While it is absolutely true that Lu has done so much for this franchise I don't see any reason why we shouldn't move him if the right offer came along.

After all Linden, Naslund, Bertuzzi, Morrison and Ohlund all among our franchise leaders in one category or another have either been traded or not retained for various reasons so I don't see how Luongo becomes immovable because of what he's done.

I say if the offer comes in that will further the team take it regardless of the legacy associated with the player (Same goes for Schneider and everyone else on the team)

If we do trade Luongo though I hope we get a pick to draft Forsberg and either an impact winger or defensive defenseman (our biggest needs)

I kind of like it. Lecavalier had a .77PPG and Plekanec had .64PPG. I think Lecavalier is a better player and brings much needed size to Montreal's lineup. Lecavalier would get to be a number 1 centre again and could regain his ppg form (he was great in Tampa's playoff run) in 10-11. To top it off Lecavalier is a french canadian, which is an added bonus.

Montreal upgrades.

Tampa gets their much needed goalie, one who they have wanted for a long time. They take on Luongos super huge contract but get to dump Lecavalier's. Lecavalier was not earning his salary as a second line centre.

Tampa improves.

Vancouver gets a defensively aware playmaking centre. Kesler is not a very good playmaker, and Booth is a pure goal guy. I think Plekanec and Booth would have good chemistry.

Vancouver improves.

All teams get a key piece they are missing while swapping big contracts. Win-win all around. Lecavalier and Luongo get added responsibility in key roles (where the excelled in the past) and Plekanec moves into a second/third line role that he is more suited for (he is not a first line centre)

Look at this Pekka Rinne can't stop a beachball with Shea Weber and Ryan Suter in front of him and 7m per year in his pocket. Luongo > Rinne value has just doubled folks.

lol one / two games means nothing, Rinne is still a great goalie, 7m is high for any elite goalie though.
