Report Bob Mckenzie: Not Many Teams Showing Interest In Luongo

368 posts in this topic

If Justin Schultz is destined to be a Leaf, how about Tim Connolly, Cody Franson & a 2nd round pick? The Leafs clear a roster spot for Schultz by moving Franson, both create a roster spot for Colborne and shed a "mistake" signing in Connolly and get their long needed #1 netminder to split 55-27 duties with Reimer as Reimer continues to develop.

The Canucks get a temporary, pure playmaking #2 centre capable of filling in while Kesler is injured and upon Kesler's return could move to right wing with Kesler & Booth to feed two shoot first scorers or he could centre the 3rd line with Higgins & Hansen. He'd fit in well age-wise with his fellow Americans (& the Sedins) and his overpaid contract expires at the end of next season so if it doesn't work out, he doesn't handcuff Gillman and his cap management juggling act. The Canucks also land a younger righthanded defenceman (that happens to be good friends with Weber and Hamhuis) to help soften the blow of letting Salo go, a 2012 2nd round pick that they're currently missing and a release from the salary cap prison that would be having $8m+ tied up in goaltending.

Thoughts?

send luongo to the chicago wolves of the AHL, it will just be like the souray/redden/jeff finger situation, so his salary docent count against the cap. luongo in his prime was just as valuable as redden was in his prime. oh yeah, I'm not joking either.

I don’t think there will be as much interest in what Bob McKenzie says as what Bob McKenzie originally thought.

The Maple Leafs receive no compensation for the losing Rick Dudley to the Canadiens, except for assurance that he won’t have any input on draft day. Burke has been pushing for teams to get compensation for losing front office employees. Burke on Roberto Luongo trade speculation:

“There has not been significant discussion (with the Canucks) about that player,” Burke said.

Ive thought this scenario aswell, as Connolly is coming off the worst offensive season of his carreer... no coincidence it happened as his first with the Leafs. :rolleyes: He has put up respectable numbers, and could fill a decent playmaking role, but when you involve his injuries and the cap space he ties up for this next season, hindering any UFA signings, I think its a bad idea.

Franson would be a solid pickup... Plays the right side, can be physical, and produce on the PP. The 35th overall is still a pretty good pick. Id be looking for another prospect, or make the deal bigger, possibly involving a guy like Raymond...

If I had to take a contract, itd probably be Lombardi. He can offer up more speed and grit to his game, and is much better on faceoffs than Connolly. He is also 1.25 million cheaper. With a full offseason of training, and a fresh start on a good team, Id bet he could resurrect 35-45 point form playing between Higgins and Hansen.

Everyone should remember that Schneider is a RFA, and will be qualified by the team. Even if he goes to arbitration, he hasnt played enough games to make much of a case for himself. Im guessing they either go the long term route if theres a good deal for Lui, or they settle on a 1 year deal around 2.5 million, with the intention of extending him next year, which will help not to hinder the cap situation too much. The guy will not get 4-5 million short term... Not gonna happen. Teams pay their star goalies a cap hit of 6-7... The Canucks total goalie cap hit will likley be around 8 should they opt to keep both.... Not that big of a deal for the best tandem in the league IMO.

Id rather trade Lui for other assets, but if a deal that makes sense isnt there.... Its just not there, and it will not happen.

There are a few different options for those looking for goalies. Thomas, Luongo, Bernier, Vokoun, etc... But there are more teams looking for a starter than there are proven starters available. But at this point, most think they have a shot at any of them.

Once a couple of them DO get traded/signed, the teams that missed out will get more desperate for who is left.

All the Canucks need is one team to want Luongo and make the right offer. Otherwise, he stays. Imagine we trade him for below market value just to make a move and then Schneider gets hurt early in the season...

Guys really got to get off this what if scenario. There is a salary cap and only one goalie can play at a time. Until the league changes their rules and two goalies can play at once keeping two starting goalies is asinine. Not only it is a waste but it is unfair to the goalies.

You got to face facts that the NHL is a difficult league to build a solid team in and you can't just blow assests sitting them on the bench for 82 games a year. Choose a backup, if your starter gets hurt you're in trouble but you can't prepare for that, similarily you can't have 6 number one centers on a team either.

Only one center can play at a time and we had 16.2 million worth of them. Only two d-men can play at a time, and we had over 21 million worth of them...

Burke wouldn't want to PAY a front loaded deal, but I bet you he'd be happy to take on one that has already paid out the high start up cost...

Luongo's salary is $6.7M right now, his cap hit is $5.3M. It is still front loaded for many years.

And what type of return did Montreal get for trading Patrick Roy? One of the most lopsided trades in NHL history.

He also got blown out in 3 games of the SCF. You can't win a series if you only show up for 3/7 games.
