      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

MG isn't dealing with Chicago, and I don't think Chicago would want Luongo anyway. They have Crawford as their number 1 anyway, so all these rumours make no sense.

Florida is the only real option Luongo has right now, because TO have bailed, I just hope MG isn't forced to make a deal because of what Lu said and he shouldn't feel pressured into making one before training camp - better to keep Luongo and win with 2 strong goalies than trade Luongo for less assets and have a struggling starter.

You added Bolland to your list because you want to lock him in a cage and poke at him with a stick with dog crap on the end of it right?

I really don't think adding bolland would destroy the locker room. At the end of the day they're professionals and know how to get over it. I don't see hank being bitter and not Playin well because of it. My guess is he would man up and show him what this team is made of by going up to him shaking his hand and welcoming him to the best organization in the NHL. Because hanks a man of honor and not a cry baby highschool kid.

That being said, no way gillis trades for him because he doesnt fit the character mold. I think he's looking to find an NHL ready player around 21-24yrs old that has a good head on his shoulders and looks like a good fit to be part of the next generation core. Someone who's not going to bolt for the biggest paycheck when he turns 26 and I don't see that in bolland.

If he did somehow make this trade and was able to get through to him like burrows, kesler and Lapierre, man we'd have a scary team.. He's probably one of the most effective 3rd line centers in the league

Toronto & Chicago are currently looking at UFA goalie Christobal Huet. Huet just finnished a contract in the Swiss league and now wants to return to the NHL.

On a side note, newly signed Martin Biron is being shopped by the Rangers. Leafs, Panthers and Hawks are all interested.

Toronto is not really into it. Dave Nonis have interestet, but not Burke. He's just making offers and making it look like he is going after the goalie, to avoid the media rashing out at him for not trying to acquire a true number 1 goalie. He's made offers, that are for sure rejectable trades, just so it looks like he's tried, when infact, he probably really has no interest. He's probably being pressured b by Nonis, but deep inside I don't think burke likes that contract. So he's just making refusable offers to Gillis to make it look like he is working around the clock on acquiring Luongo. At the end of the day the media cannot say "Burke is not trying to get a goalie" because he has, but no. Luke Schenn plus a 1st and 2nd round pick is a garbage offer

Kulemin, Komaserek and a 2nd round pick for Luongo is an insult actually especially after we signed Garrison. Brian Burke has no intentions of trading for Luongo.

I'm guessing nothing happens re: Lu until Doan picks a team. So perhaps later next week. You have to think Gillis wants this done sooner, rather than later (for planning purposes) - assuming there are good trade options available. I still think he ends up in Florida, and Canucks end up with one of their centers: Bjugstad/Huberdeau/Goc, + other pieces.

Garbage defencemen, plus unpredicable 1st round pick, plus unpredicable 2nd round for all star goalie is indeed a garbage offer. Luongo is an all star goalie. You cannot get an all star goalie over night, as for 1st round picks, every team will get a 1st round pick every year. So in the end, one hell of a garbage offer. That's why Gillis rejected it. He also rejected Schenn on more then 1 occasion already, I don't even know why the hell Burke is offering him to us again, after we rejected Schenn for Hodgson. Again Burke is just doing this to protect his own interest.
