No way I believe it. Both teams are looking for a starter. There's one super available starter.

There are already so many threads on Luongo, leafs.... etc.. etc.. etc... Why not keep it all in the same thread.

IMO we don't need another thread for every so called hockey analyst's tweet on the subject.

Yeah, I heard Darren Dreger talking about it on SC. I think Spector just randomly mentioned Toronto in there though.

Do you honestly think a GM would publicly display interest in an elite goaltender like Luo? It was give MG bargaining power, for example, if a player openly asks for a trade it would decrease his trade value versus keeping it on the downlow.

Buddy I called this EXACT situtation on here two years ago and was flamed, so I guess I have a bit of hockey knowledge, not to mention the 4 years I played in the OHL idiot.

Define 'meaningful.'

At this point, kicking the tires is all that would be expected. The only 'mega interest' in a trade is that which has been drummed up by the media.

'B-But samjam said it was almost done!'. We're witnessing the rise and fall of some chump on twitter and his bloggy promoters. Fail, fools. Cheers.

Since Gillis isn't going to be an idiot about this, we're winning whether we're trading either or keeping both. So...

Watch TO make the exact deal SJ99 talked about . . . that would be hilarious. Seriously. I would laugh. Not at you or anyone who thinks he's garbage. Just out of ridiculousness.

Miller is not on our list. It's Lack as our #1. There is no reason we would have traded both Schnieder and Luongo if we never intended to give Lack the #1 starting job.  Furthermore, the salary and term Miller is looking for is not in our favor.

Honestly i forget what that deal was, other than it was 90% done almost a month ago and that 'he broke the story' although Lu to TO talk has been going on since April.

Jesus this off-season seems LONG.

I kinda feel CDC is in a bit of denial about luongo. To me it's really no surprise that these teams aren't foaming at the mouth to get him. He's been trashed repeatedly on this board, on tv, in newspapers and I think his reputation these days really isn't that great, definitely not worth the risk of taking on a long term contract and giving up good assets to get him.

Why do I get flashes of Fear & Loathing in Las Vegas/The Rum Diary whenever I read a post of yours addressing the painfully long Canucks' offseason?

Kassian.... Taylor Pyatt 3.0

Lies. He's more of a Steve Bernier. Hopefully his talent level goes up so he can become like a Taylor Pyatt.

All this Luongo hype is kind of getting a bit repetitive. Everything will play out in a couple of days and if not than it's time to get excited for July 1.

Cox and Dreger stepping up the Toronto lobby - sure working hard to posture that they aren't interested enough in Luongo to make a meaningful offer - regardless I really doubt either of them can speak for Florida - wishful thinking on their part, but they aren't the only players, and if they were, no point in playing period. No giveaways for the Leafs - sorry - we know you guys suck, but this isn't the world of charity or affirmative action.

It's hard to move superstars, that's also the reason Nash hasn't gone either.

"Burke declined to talk about specific goalie targets, but it’s clear through conversations I’ve had with other league sources that the Leafs have interest in Luongo, although as of Wednesday morning, I don’t believe there had been any meaningful discussions between Toronto and Vancouver.

It starts with wishy washy speculation, and these other Toronto guys Cox and Dreger (who has conflict of interest written all over his positions) run with it and are merely parroting each other.
No news here - no real sources - just Toronto media playing games.

I personally am glad to see Toronto resorting to this for a number of reasons. The first and foremost being that I don't want them to have Luongo - second, it is weak.

Both sides are trying to gain the power and all gillis has to do is hold out.

I'm thinking Burke is trying to play it off like he's not that interested to get gillis to flog him off for barely anything.. Gillis is too smart for that. He will hold out till the right deal comes, if need be right into next season. The longer he holds out the more desperate Toronto and other teams with struggling/underperforming goalies become.. Burke can play it off like he's not interested all he wants but the fact is luongo is the best goalie availible and the price is gonna skyrocket when other goalies start underperforming and showing their true colors. He'd be better off making a solid pitch for him now.

Bahahahaha.

If Schneider falters, or Luongo chokes, nobody is going to give a DAMN how much we would have had invested in goaltending (if we kept them both).

Schneider is still an unproven goaltender; IDGAF how much you CDC pro scouts jerk off to his lateral movement and HNIC after hours interview. Just because you think he can't fail, because of the unlimited talent you perceive he has, doesn't mean he won't. The man has played like 50 games in his career!

And if Luongo gets shelled, wouldn't having a second goaltender ready to go be amazing?

One more year. You win, you're in. We can trade a goalie during the year, or in the next off-season.

Buddy I called this EXACT situtation on here two years ago and was flamed, so I guess I have a bit of hockey knowledge, not to mention the 4 years I played in the OHL idiot.

I've never once thought his value was that high.

I was always hovering around Toronto's 2nd rounder, a prospect and a roster player.

Like:

Franson, Colborne & TOR 2nd

Luongo, Raymond & Tanev.

Come on man get with the program. Dreger already stated that Florida doesn't have enough money to resign Garrison so we have to conclude that they cannot afford Lou, right? If you cannot belieeve these guys (after all they are professionals and have a rep to protect) then who can you believe, Grapes?

These are the same guys who are ruining our game with their nightly inquistions on hits from behind, elbows, late hits.. you know the drift. Burke and Gillis will play them and vice versa. The clock ticks!
