      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.

4,357 posts in this topic

actually looks like its going to be Huberdeau

its

Luongo,schroeder,tanev for Huberdeau, Theodoer, 1st round pick.... They have come out and said tanev is replacing Garisson so there is no way they would give us Gudbranson.

Huberdeau or Gudbranson would be amazing!

If Gillis got offered any one of those players and a 1st rounder?

TAKE THE DEAL, SIGN THE PAPERS, AND RUN AS FAST AS YOU CAN!

Ok, I live in Vegas (I really do, was 109 degrees here today) and Since Luongo is here right now, you can trust me! I know what's really happening.

I was down on the Strip earlier (that's where all the fancy hotels are) and the whole place was abuzz with word of what Luongo has been saying and about how excited he is to be returning to the Florida Panthers!

Yes, its official, 99% done that we are getting everything we want and more back from Dale Tallon. Apparently he has been told by team ownership to just get the deal no matter the cost! There's a 90% chance that this all goes down in the next 48 hours, as soon as the Canucks can find enough places to house all the incredible plethora of talent that will be coming back in exchange for Luongo, Raymond and Ballard.

MG has played this masterfully and Tallon knows if he doesn't get this done, its his nuts in the vise and its already starting to tighten.

Again, Its at least 80% chance that this is all done and wrapped up in the next 72 hours, and that there is at the very least a 50% chance of all this happening as well as us flipping out one of the first round picks coming back from Florida to bring Nash to town.

Again, if this doesn't all happen and transpire in the next 96 hours, I'm told that the chances of it happening may really only be 10% but the chances of that are really only 50/50.

Again, you have it from a reliable source in sunny Las Vegas! I've had my ear to the sidewalk (ouch, that's really hot) and I heard all this being discussed by a bellhop who was talking about the whole thing with a guy who was rifling through the dumpster at the back of the MGM that we will see this all wrap up and conclude in the next 120 hours Max!

Lol...... Or what?

Some of you are delusional if you think we're getting huberdeau or gudbranson and if by some small stroke of miracle we do pry one of these guys away from Florida, don't nod your head in justification that you were right. If that were to happen, never question another god damn move gillis makes cause he would be a pimp to pull that off.

After tirelessly reading the same lame samjam/eklund joke over and over again, FINALLY one that is actually funny. Everyone thinks they're a comedian but only a very few know how to do it right. :)

I can't believe the first reply to that stream of BS was "Florida doesn't want ballard back and do not want raymond"

:picard:

how is Luongo+tanev for Huberdeau+ delusional? it is actually a very good possibility... they need someone to step into Garissons spot on D and a goalie we need a top 6 play maker (which Huberdeau can be) since we gave up Hodgson upgrading to Huberdeau would be amazing

IMO, we'd be real lucky if to even got Huberdeau for Luongo + Tanev straight up. Them adding pieces makes it seem even more impossible,

I was thinking today what Chicago could offer would anyone take emery bolland shaw and a 1st for Luongo and Raymond I know the history with bolland and the sedins but this guy is an absolute gamer in the playoffs he is the perfect 3rd line center. Does he have a NTC?

C.B. @NHLSourcesSay @Vanc0uverCanuck: whats possibly going back in a trade for luongo?” asking price right now is a top 6 forward, prospect and or draft pick.

How the heck do you post twitter captions without getting those massive black bars? I've seen people pretty much screenshot it, like on Pass it to Bulis. Not wasting that much time, although there should be a more presentable way to inform the masses. Oh yeah there is. Twitter.

Everyone has to realize that in a trade both teams want to get better

The Goaltending in FLA was top 10 in GAA so they won't see as drastic as an improvement from obtaining Luongo as Toronto or Tampa.

I think hockey wise the trade makes no sense for FLA, it's more of a ticket sale deal than anything.

My interpretation of the Panther's President's tweet:

  • A deal is in place, or at least extremely close to being in place

  • Luongo will officially be asked to waive tonight or tomorrow morning

  • Trade will be made official tomorrow morning

  • The Panther's President is meeting with Luongo on Monday night to welcome him back to the organization.

If I were GM of the Panthers, coming off the season they just had and Gillis asked me for Huberdeau, I'd hang up. With Theodore, Clemmenson and Markstrom coming up, they don't need Luongo at all. They certainly would be foolish to let go of a blue chip prospect at center when they aren't exactly deep down the middle themselves.

I think there are going to be some disappointed Canucks fans with what the team gets back in the Lou trade...

Honestly, the likelihood of Luongo talking to FLA GM in Vegas is ridiculous.

HOWEVER!!!! And this is a massively big HOWEVER, if he is it is per the wishes of Mike Gillis and Mike has given veto permission.

This is so obscure, and completely improbably, that I honestly can't see it happening.

Why would Gillis give up any leverage he has left on the FLA trade by letting Luongo negotiate in a situation where he would take a bag of pucks just to get out of Van City. Luongo is biased, and therefore can not be asked to handle anything involving the FLA management until he is traded (if it is even to FLA).

The only way this works, is if FLA really wants Luongo (and Luongo is willing to elsewhere), and there are other suitors who's deals Mike Gillis is using as leverage to make sure FLA stays honest with any personal talks to Luongo and doesn't try to fleece the Canucks on a previously arranged trade agreement.

Cheers.
