Pens...... Flyers......???
I think Tampa would be the best fit... maybe NJ...
but i don't want him to go .
he is the best goalie this team ever had and he has been since he first got here.....no one looks at the big picture with Lu they look at the few bad games... he got us to the SCF game 7 at that...
if he leaves i hope he wins a cup.





edit: so any team but Toronto because i never want them to win anything.

I'm not sure if I believe that Toronto is on his list. Lu wants to win a cup, so only TB and NJ seem logical for him to want to go to.

Either way, the best thing for this organization is to trade Cory, not Lu.

Just hope he's traded to an eastern cup contender. If he stays in the western conference we will regret facing him so many times a year

Guys how realistic that he would go to Chicago? Would they even want him? I mean no one better (then perhaps Vancouver) would know how he lets teams get into his head and then melts down on the ice. ....... And more importantly if he does go to Chicago what would we get in return? I would want nothing less then some one worthy of the cost of Lu because regardless of anything he has so far been the best goalie this franchise has ever had. If he is to leave to let Cory have his time to shine then we better get something BIG in return...

can anyone explain the logic of listing Minnesota? We already have a goalie issue to deal with (Backs/Harding with the "next" guy already waiting for his spot as "back up.") Not to mention, how smart would it be to lock up over $10 million with 2 goalies that have NTC in their contracts?

I wouldn't be shocked to see him traded to Chicago (if it's on his list.) Imagine the riot that would occur if Lou played there, and beat the 'Nucks in the playoffs.

Washington
Toronto
- Both wild cards/last resort he'd like to go to.



....I think as much as Lu would love to go to Detroit to win the Cup or have a much greater chance to, MG wouldn't trade him there because Lu and Detroit would easily burn us as they are in the same conference.
, ScBtw, I don't think Lu will be gone....will be Schneids - Lu is proven, with Schneids you have no guarantees + Schneids can get a better return for the team.


hmmm ... the only guarantee we have with Lu is awful in Sept/Oct, Brilliance in Nov-Feb, wobbling in March, and shaking in his boots in April/May .... oh and a mother of all stupid contracts that lasts 10 years. That last guarantee isn't Lu's fault ... that one goes to rookie GM Gillis. I swear he had his agent hat on at the time he signed that deal.

Took the words right out of my mouth. This latest move by Luongo shows that the Canucks are the number one team is his heart. I was hesitant to jump on the Luongo bandwagon when we first got him. I remember during his first contract he showed little signs of wanting to resign here after it was done. I was unsure how much he liked playing in Vancouver. I remember there being occasions where he threw the team under the bus after a game where he stood on his head but the team in front of him gave him little support. But after he signed a 12 year contract with Vancouver, that's when I finally became a fan of him. His actions spoke louder than his words and Luongo showed that he was loyal to this team and wanted to spend the rest of his career as a Canuck.

I remember when he first came here, things were more about him. Now he has changed and his priority is now his team.

Tampa
Florida x
Toronto
______
Washington
Montreal x
Carolina x
Dallas x
Ottawa

I think for Luongo we could get a somewhat productive roster player with a fairly high cap hit and a younger guy on a lower cap hit or a draft pick.

Tampa - Teddy Purcell + Pick/prospect
Toronto - Kulemin/Connolly + Franson
Washington - Neuvirth + Ward/Laich/Brouwer
Ottawa - Anderson + Michalek

Tampa - Teddy Purcell has decent size and is a solid playmaker. He might be a good fit playing opposite to Booth.

Toronto - Connolly would give us a scoring line centre who is more of a playmaker, freeing up Kesler to check other teams top lines. Again Connolly would be a good compliment to Booth's shooting game. While his numbers look bleak he did put up an ESP every 30 minutes this past season compared to Kesler's ESP over 43 minutes (30% more productive).

Washington - Laich or Brouwer would be solid additions on the 2nd line wing position (moreso Laich). Ward would slot into a 3rd line role, putting Kesler into an offensive position 5 on 5. Neuvirth has one more year on his contract and his experience would relieve some pressure off of Schneider while his youth would create some competition.

Ottawa - Doesn't really make much sense for either team.
Sig too big.

1. Toronto
Luongo for Schenn and Ashton. Burke has to over pay to deal with MG.

2. Tampa
Luongo for Connolly and a 1st

3. Washington
Luongo for Carlsson

4. New Jersey
Luongo for Volchenkov ?

I doubt Florida would be interested and vice versa

In no particular order:

1. Montreal
2. Toronto
3. Tampa Bay
4. New Jersey
5. Detroit

I wouldn't rule out NJ because Brodeur and Luongo and friends, and if Brodeur is on the fence about retiring... knowing the Luongo would be replacing him would be a good thing.

Toronto, as he is wanted there by the fans on their Board, even if they only get 5 or 6 good years out him theyd love to get him. Nonis is there, he can play regularly in Montreal be close to his family. They were a maple leaf emblem, and he could be a part of reviving an historical team which Burke is commited to doing.
Tampa.Yzerman is there and needs to replace Rolli who is 9 years older than Lou. But they already spend their summers ther, and Lou might rather live closer to his family, rather than Gina's.
Chicago, and Detroit need Goalies, but they lack the Italian French Culture.
I don't know if Montreal as they are way too much of a goalie graveyard since Roy suddenly quit.
It's down to Tampa, and Toronto. I say Toronto.

I think playing in the Canadian market is always a plus to a guy like Lou, he likes the pressure and the limelight. Also with Toronto being out of the playoffs just barely this year, he can go in and take them to the playoffs next year and be the star there. If you go to a top contending team and the team finishes worse, all the negative attention will fall on him. In Toronto they are not about to finish worse than this year.

Above and it's the "centre of the universe", drive or short fights to games. Multicultaral, and Dave Nonis wants him back. He could be just what that team needs to bring back the glory days.

Montreal - his hometown. I know they have Price but still likely to be a choice for Luongo
Tampa
Florida

cant think of the rest tbh. Maybe Toronto?

I would just like to thank the Canucks Fans for once again running another classy (and the best goalie this organisation has ever had) player out again. Players like Naslund, Ohlund, Luongo, etc. dont come by easy and every little mistake they make you want them traded. Enough is enough. Sorry about this little rant but the general fan base of this team has really annoyed me tbh. Still whatever/wherever Luongo does/goes I wish him the best whether it's in a Canuck uniform or not...

I think we should acknowledge how contingent tomorrows Devils/Panthers game is on possible affecting his list. If the Panthers win maybe they're comfortable with what they have. The same could be said of the Devils, Brodeur could likely stay following a win.

The best fit, and I think everyone would agree, would be Tampa Bay. This team has a lot of options to trade and is lacking in goaltending.

With all this said, I've been both a hater and supporter of Luongo and I would be sad to see him go. There was mention on TSN tonight of Luongo going to Toronto, which makes me want to keep him :(

Lu is a proven goalie. We don't know if Cory will be able to handle a full regular season. Plus Cory would bring back more assets than Lu would in a trade. Not to mention that Lu has done so much for this organization, it would be insulting to trade him.


Remember we did trade Linden, the most influential player in the history of this organization. A trade that was heart-breaking at the time, but in the end, it made our team significantly better.
