Why Luongo will not be traded at the draft, and why he might.

36 posts in this topic

A lot of people have been telling Gillis to man up and grow a pair for not making a blockbuster deal, and the rumours of Luongo having a good chance not to be traded at the draft has people beyond angry.

The reasons Luongo will not be getting moved on the draft is the following:

They are still in listening mode.

Gillis had said in an interview that 5 draft picks are fine to the management, which means that they probably won't trade at the draft because why not wait if you don't want any picks, I am also aware that there will be offers on the table throughout the draft, but that does not necessarily mean the Canucks will accept.

Also, they might have not come up with a package deal for Luongo yet, and the market may be better in August.

The reasons Luongo will be getting moved at the draft is the following:

Gillis likes to troll and he could be pulling something on us.

They may want draft picks if a good offer comes up.

Schiender may not want to sign if Luongo is still here.

Also, there is a very unlikely chance that Schiender will be traded, but if they sign him it will raise his value and he could trade him if an amazing offer comes up, but it's highly, highly unlikely.

I think the Market for Luongo will be worse in August.

By then, everyteam should have their team settle already. Others GMs will know Gillis doesn't want to start the camp with both Schneider and Luongo on the teams. Just like Ottawa didn't want Heatley around training camp the year he was traded.

Trade him now !

Last night, Ass. GM Laurence Gilman, was on NW98's SportsTalk, talking with Dave Pratt. Pratt asked if the list Luongo gave them is getting shorter. Gilman said Dave had a bad scoop.. Luongo has "not" tendered a list, and that Lu's at home in Florida "decompress". He also said they've held interest expressed on "both" goalies. .. I thought the exit clause in Lu's contract required him to give a "written list of 5 teams". Even if they both agreed to a trade.. The no trade contract requires the written list to get out of it legally. No list.. No trade. I think Schneider's the trade bait.

worst case scenario - we hold on to both goalies great tandem but a waste of an asset and cap space. but a positive twist. Market for schneids increases and we trade either goalie for whom ever wins the lottery pick and we pick Nathan Mackinnon whose gonna be a stud plus we get to see the leafs suffer another year!!!!!

Ive held my breathe on these ridiculous Lou threads long enough. There has only been one meeting between Loungo and Gillis. The only thing said was that he would be willing to waive his no trade clause if it was in the best interest of the team. There is NO list of teams. Never has been. I know this simply because, Lou cousins, who Ive known for 10 plus years, own a hockey shop here on the North Shore. They know exactly whats going on, and its absolutely comical to them the way the media has competely toyed with the fans regarding Lou and the Canucks. There is NO list, and Toronto is NOT a place Lou would waive his clause to. Gillis, the team, and Lou stilll very much are a team and Gillis still considers Lou a huge part of this club. That is all im going to say about this, so enough with these fantasies about a trade involving Lou and the Leafs.

Yes, i contested the thought of Luongo 'wanting to go to TO' as soon as it came up. Why would he request to be dumped from one microscope hockey town only to head over to an even bigger (and far more insane) microscope hockey town? Because he wants to win? Because he's from Montreal? Because he lives in Florida?

The only evidence that leads to 'Luongo to TO' is a phantom list (that conveniently includes TO) and a bunch of blabbering and rumour-mongering coming out of TO.

Anyway, it's all not without purpose. Both towns have a long off-season to fill with meaningless talk. Cheers.
