So at this point in time it seems as if Luongos most likely destination this off-season is Toronto, but the question I ask is who do we get in return for our all-star goalie? some say they'd just accept their first round pick (I believe 5th overall) for Luongo, straight up, but I don't really think thats enough... I think the Canucks should look to get some players that can make a difference for the upcoming cup run.

And that made me think, who does Toronto have that could do this for us... and by that I mean who that is worth Luongo? There's no way wed be able to get Kessel which is the only real member of the leafs that is sought-after... Phaneuf... well not many people really want Phaneuf.

So who do you guys think we could get/want to get from the Leafs if this deal were to go down?

Their first round pick. Gardiner. Maybe Lupul. Maybe Schenn. Maybe Kadri if he can be more consistent. Maybe Kulemin if he can regain the form he had a couple years ago.

Maybe Luongo + Raymond for Gardiner and Kulemin. Don't know if Toronto would do that though, they're pretty high on Gardiner.

no Kadri please but it would be awesome if we could get the 5th overall pick and a top 6 forward or a top 4 dman. One can dream right?

We got a lot of work to do before we can consider us a Stanley cup contender.

Actually I would argue Luongo's most likely destination is Tampa Bay.

But as for what Toronto has.. I would just say their first round pick. Maybe Gardiner or Kadri.

I'd only trade Luongo to Toronto if we got Schenn and Gardiner in return.

Both of them.

Anyone know what other high end players like Lu have gone for in the past? I know there are a lot of other variables like age, position etc. so of course it wouldn't be an exact return, but it could at least give us some comparisons rather than continually speculating on what we will get back for trading Lu.

P.S

So glad we are trading Lu and keeping Schneiderman. I think it will really make a difference with the team next year to not have the head case and surrounding media attention with Lu in the dressing room.

I really don't know. It would be worthwhile to see Luongo end up in Chicago, Boston, Philadelphia, or Toronto.

Luongo, Raymond and Alberts for Connolly and Schenn

Toronto gets their elite goalie and Raymond who was highly touted by Nonis and should have more success in the east.

Vancouver gets a crafty playmaking centre and a big, young, defensive defenseman.

Sedin Sedin Burrows
Lapierre Kesler Hansen (checkling line)
Booth Connolly Higgins (scoring line 2)
______ Steckel Kassian

Bieksa Hamhuis
Edler Schenn
Ballard Tanev
Gragnani

Schneider
(Mason? Nittymaki? Lack?)
Sig too big.

Was wondering the same thing myself, glad you made a thread about it. TSN guys seem to be pushing this Van-Tor trade more than anything.

Canucks needs are 3rd line centre, back up goalie and top 4 righty d-man to play with Edler (plus anyone who can score goals :) ). So, I think Bozak and Schenn + a low pick (maybe a 4th).

Bozak (25 yrs old) is a great 2 way centreman, has 1 yr left on very affordable $1.5M contract. He had 47 pts this yr (albeit playing in top 6 mins).

Schenn's a bit of a risk cause he's played 4 full yrs in the NHL and has yet to really break through. I think he struggles defensivly, so a Edler -Schenn paring could be a huge face-palm. But last yr when he played in a top 4 role, I thought his underlying numbers were a lot better. Plus, Canucks need to get tougher on the back end - Schenn will provide that. Gardiner's a wimp, lol.

No way Gillis takes Connolly and his $4.75 cap hit at the age of 30. The guy would be centering the 3rd line and making almost as much as Kesler.

They wont be happy giving up picks or stars...
I'm thinking Phaneuf and a prospect or pick will be their offer, they'd prolly only give up the picks for Schneids b/c of his age

Their first-rounder, one of their young d-men, and something extra to sweeten the pot would probably get it done...if Gillis and Burke got along. Count me among those who think Gillis would trade Lu for nothing before he'd deal with Toronto. Maybe he'll demand Burke's head as the price of making a deal, fire Burkie and then we'll talk. That'd be pretty bad-ass.

To Vancouver: Roberto Luongo.
From Vancouver: Roberto Luongo.

See what I did there? I think the organization has made it clear at this point that they stand by Luongo. Even with Schneider's excelling performance, I really have a hard time picturing them moving Roberto. I would expect them to move a player like Ballard to free up cap room to resign Schneider. Stop overthinking this "goalie controversy", because in all likelihood, nothing will change in this department.

Please, reread what I have just said, memorize it, change your oppinion to it, and pass on the word to the next person who makes a trade Luongo thread. Please and thankyou.

Gardiner is a real gem but Schenn has been one of their worst defenceman over the last few seasons. Just because he was drafted with high potential and is still young doesn't mean he's good for this team right now, which is when we're making our Cup runs. Schenn is brutal in his own zone and terrible positionally, no thanks.

I know no one wants this guy, but Phaneuf is exactly what this team needs. Say what you want, our defence is desperately lacking a big, mean, physical presence with solid leadership and also an ability to put up points. Phaneuf is the big, scary defenceman that our D core lacks, and is great in front of his own net - something we also lack (Bieksa and Edler are two of the worst, Hamhuis and Salo aren't much better because they aren't big and physical enough).

We could have used the big physical presence of Phaneuf against the big LA forwards, because our relatively small defencemen were embarassed.

We sent Bertuzzi, Allen and Auld to Florida to get Luongo in the first place.

We should get something good back for him
