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.

Eddie just went into the wild ;)! I Agee completely. This town rags on the best goalie we have ever had. I say town/city because real fans don't kick a sports athlete out of their home.
This city deserves a championship. This is the best era in Canucks history, keep bleeding blue n green always!
Win it for Ripper, Luc and Demo.

Just Breathe Eddie, just breathe.
After a few days here, I am surprised half of you got the anti-bot question correct to register for this site.

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.


these aren't even points... your just making stuff up.

Oh hello Alain Vigneault, I see what you did there... good one.

Gillis probably wants a 2013 1st rounder.

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.

that is true unless he waived the no trad claws all together which allows them to trade him to any team the Canucks. Luongo did say that he will do what the team thinks is the best or MG hasn't asked for the list as Luongo said he will give it if MG asks for it from him.
