Summery of Key Points

- Teams that have the most interest, Florida and Toronto

- Luongo has not Met with MG or Canucks Management regarding his future as a Canuck

- Luongo is on vacation with his family in Cabo.

- Teams that are borderline interested are hesitant do to the nature of Luongo's contract.

- They also pointed out ---> if Luongo retires in 4-5 years as many believe he will do, (max 7) the contract becomes more attractive to possible Suiters.

- Gillis and Luongo Need to get on the same page, (Trade or Stay) before teams express serious interest.

Basically, the Rumors are a joke.

Thats how the Cabo vacation came up.

I was dead against that but if other teams get into the mix, they may over pay.

They also mentioned Vancouver would be interested in a "soft" deal. they used that word to imply, please to big contracts coming back

did anyone else hear dreger on team 1040??? it kinda went a little more in depth on the luongo situation

he said that if he was a betting man he would bet on luongo landing in florida but only if a good sized contract is going the other way

there isnt anything on fla that im interested in with a hefty price tag attached to his name

there was a bunch of other stuff but this was the juicy part of the convo.....everything else was info you could figured out on your own

Well, samjam just lost even more credibility.

In my eyes drouin is overrated he can score in the qmjhl but did nothing in last two gold medal games that canada lost. Fox will be better pro than him talk to me in five yrs

Luongo is probably reading CDC while in Cabo laughing his ass off. Hi LU

The key difference is that Sopel can fill in for Seabrook and Campbell just fine. Bieksa, he is garbage so in that sense he is like the worst defenseman in the league.


When Cody (Hodgson) gets older, he might be better than Datsyuk.


Let's not push this guy (Kassian). He's still immature, and if he fails on the 2nd line it's because he isn't ready. Some guys really need years to develop, it's how well and how fast players adapt to the game. In my opinion, I'd rather have Horvat getting 2nd line minutes. He will start off on the 3rd line next season but I see him making the transition, being a great compliment to whoever plays his wings.

At this point, I don't see Kassian fitting in to any role other than a 3rd. If players like Kassian start getting 2nd line minutes then we just stay inconsistent as a team.


The idiocy on CDC....

TSN is probably trying to do damage control. Toronto owners probably were pissed that the rumor was released.

Yeah samjam99 said it was 90% done with Burkie and the Leafs. I don't bother even reading his threads anymore.

Even if Gillis and Burke worked out a deal, while Gillis was on a fishing trip over the weekend, (might I add) and Luongo was in Cabo.

Would it, could it, be a done deal? 3 weeks away from the draft?

Gillis has obviously moved on from sleep testing to teleportation.

Samjam99 is a high school student. He isn't very secretive about his actual identity. He signed up on Twitter with his real name, and posts images of himself everywhere. Additionally, his username is a portmanteau of his full name.

I never saw how credible a high school student could really be. All he does is post everything he hears on television. If anything, he really just wants to be the first to post new articles on CDC.

1) Doesn't matter where Luongo is

2) MG has assistant GMs who are fully capable of making trades.

Burke never wanted that contract. Its the assistant Leafs GM Dave Nonis who wants Luongo
