      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.

[Rumours/Reports] Official Roberto Luongo Trade Thread (Keep it all here please)

Recommended Posts

That's the irony. He is a huge joke but he has followers. I bet if people here actually thought you could still make an anonymous twitter account and post BS rumors and actually accumulate 10s of thousands of followers more people would have tried it.

I know a lot of people have been saying no to trading Luo to TOR but I finally visited their forums and boy oh boy are their fans nasty. Luo deserves better.

Darren Dregger of all people already said that, hockeyinsiderr does not have any resources or connections, and that he is all B.s. I'm shocked to still see people posting his tweets.

As for Luongo I really wish he kept his y appers shut. There is a very good chance he might be at Canucks training camp, and after saying that, it makes him looks kinda stupid, after saying, "it's time to move on."

Just trade him and get something, anything back, at this point I dont care and just want him gone. Schneider is our goalie going forward and with the cap hit gone allows the Canucks to sign Doan, or take some salary back in a trade.

Not the first time Lu's comments have caused difficulties. His comments about Tim Thomas in the SC finals were a major distraction for the Nucks and a huge motivator for the Bruins. Some guys never seem to learn.

MG is smart and trying I think to hard to make the right deal.If it was me I'd want matthias,ellerby and a 1st for Luo and raymond

then I'd sign doan to a 3 or 4 year deal 5 mill a season, then trade ballard,manny,sauve,schroder,jensen and a first or two 1st for Weber.

It's because people love to take his words out of context, such as we're seeing here.

His words in the finals were fine, basically saying only that he and Thomas play a much different game. Actually, when Lu arrived here in 2006 his game was a lot closer to Thomas' aggressive style than it is now, so he knew exactly what he was talking about. "It" would have been an easier save for him, but likewise some shots will be easier for Thomas and his style than Lu's. He wasn't saying that he was the better player. It was only "motivation" if you intentionally ignore the context and don't attempt to understand the point he was making. I expect that from Boston fans and the media, but Vancouver fans should put in a modicum of effort to understand the words in their proper context and intended meaning.

Secondly, that interview did not hurt his value. He said never say never; he could play in Vancouver another year. But he and the rest of us can see the writing on the wall. He didn't admit anything that EVERYONE and their grandmother didn't already know. Lu was going to be shopped this summer. He probably helped his value by essentially stating that he didn't intend to play out the entirety of his contract. With term being the only concern with his contract, that statement makes him more appealing to potential buyers. Likewise he said he wasn't likely to veto trades, and just wants to go to a team that has a chance to win, opening up possible destinations outside of Florida.

The interview did not harm MG's position at all.

Great post. Thank you for this.

I will disagree with the last remark. I think him suggesting he needs to move on does not make the rival GMs lobby harder. It might make their fans lobby more.

I won't argue that.  I will however argue that Luongo is a ticket draw, specifically in Florida, so fan influence matters.

doesnt matter what fans say unlesss one thing is the onlt thing heard.If they want lou bad enough doesnt mean the gm will get him less it makes sence and for them it does and for us it does.For the last four years I have been waiting for MG to make a big move.We have needed a BIG D man and a better second line player.We have a chance to get both and third line center upgrade.This is our season for MG to do something and make us better instead of signing decent players but not get us a great one.No offence to hamhuis he is close to a great player but the other fill ins like manny and ballard have not done what was expected of them.I am tired of getting these type of players , MG get us a great one or two so we can win a cup!
