      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.

[Rumour] Fan 960 in Calgary: Luongo to Toronto done at draft

Recommended Posts

We have to appreciate it is extremely unlikely that we end up with Gardiner/the 5th round pick.

For every Canucks fan that thinks those are on the table, theres an equally stupid Leafs fan who thinks the return will be Komisarek and a late pick.

There has to be value somewhere between the 2 extremes, and I don't think its outrageous to think the return would be based around

- Luke Schenn

- Nikolai Kulemin (or forwards not named Kessel/Lupul)

- 2nd Round Pick (unlikely since they have no 3rd/4th, so Van would likely send a 2nd/3rd back)

- Any Prospect not named Gardiner (Kadri, Colborne, Ashton, etc)

Schenn regressed a bit this past season, but he was one of TO's better guys the season prior. He needs work and structure. Neither of which are prominent in TO's defense lately.

Interesting that TO's current top-5 pick is off the table, according to many over there, but Schenn and Kadri are on the table. What? Is BB pro-Russian now? Don't think so. I also don't think the 'nux should go after it unless they are able to draft Forsberg. Forsberg with the twins? Destiny fullfilled! lol

Komisarek? Bah. Take him if needed and demote him to Chicago if needed. Who cares about the cap when teams like NYR (and TO) get to bury whatever contracts they so choose. Cap, schmap.

I don't like the prospect of Luongo going to TO, myself. It will lead to a huge pile of hypocrisy coming out of there. Cherry will have to learn his name. He'll be their saviour. Their God. etc. Because they're even more goaltender-centric than us. And I don't like giving good players to TO, period. Sure, the trade might hurt them in the long term, but you have to think this move would also put that bloody team into the playoffs. And who wants that? Regards.

Meanwhile, the draft is almost a month away. Certainly Luongo speculation will survive until then without added assistance from our friends in... Calgary? Right.

Hasn't Gillis been away on a fishing trip all weekend?

How can the deal be done? lots can happen leading to the draft.

The NHL doesn't want teams not in the playoffs taking attention away from the action on the ice. I guess small trades like the Vokoun trade/signing are no big deal.

But if I were MG and BB I would say f&%k it. Announce the trade right when Dustin F.Face Brown lifts up the Cup.

Many are saying this. I highly doubt it's done. But I also wouldn't be that surprised if it's made. Hello Cody Franson?
