      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

The owners offer must have made Luongo's value increase. You wont be able to get players at long contracts with a decent cap hit anymore by the looks of things. Lou type players will be 5 -7 years max at 7.5 per minimum like price and rinne etc

"@hfialkov: Panthers haven't spoken to Luongos agent in weeks. #flapanthers"

http://blogs.sun-sentinel.com/sports_hockey_panthers/2012/07/panthers-sign-mueller-and-more-news.html

The Panthers will be announcing several signings today of their own UFA in San Antonio, such as forwards Mike Caruso and James Wright. We’ll get the details later. The deadline for Panthers RFA defenseman Dmitry Kulikov to accept the team’s offer passed on Sunday so the offer is now off the table. All that means is that the Panthers and Kuli will continue negotiations until they get it done. GM Dale Tallon and asst. GM Mike Santos have made it clear that they want to keep Kuli around on a long-term deal. RFA forward Kris Versteeg and the Panthers are awaiting his arbitration hearing next week. Again, he will be playing for the Panthers this year so there’s no sense of urgency there.

There’s absolutely no recent chatter on the Roberto Luongo front. The Panthers are content with their trio of goalies and are certainly holding all the cards in this situation. It appears that Caps forward Alexander Semin wants big payday (perhaps $10 million over two years) but only Russian league would ante that much for him. I’ve heard the Panthers have expressed preliminary interest but price tag seems too steep. There’s not much else out there so don’t expect much action for the rest of the summer.

I have never believed in Florida's interest in Luongo. They have good goaltending. Why make holes in other places to fill holes you don't have?

Look for Hockeyy Insiderr to change his tune today

Might have to wait until after the lockout/cba negs to see what happens here. First of all, none of the teams are in any hurry to get a deal done. Secondly, the new CBA could greatly impact teams' cap structure as well as Luongo's current contract.

Hehe. Watch Suter's and Parise's deals be ripped-up. (Not gonna happen, but it would be funny.)

Gillis' mind can't be fracked with. The Canucks already have "The Mind Room".

No kidding. He's not a free agent, he's under contract w/ the Canucks, so why would they be talking to his agent? They're not allowed to. If they're interested they'll be talking to Gillis and Gilman

Again, I don't think Brian burke was ever interested in Luongo, probably because of the contract, as we know, he is not a fan of that type of contract.  Nonis we know, is really interested in him, but Burke has the final say.  Burke has offered us refusable offers in order to look like he is trying to add better players, when in fact he has very little interest.  This way, he can protect his own interest, by at least look like he is trying to trade for Luongo. If he does nothing, and everything goes bad next season, he will get thrown under the bus.  However  if he's made the offers to Gillis, at least the media cannot lash out at him for "not trying" because he can say, he's already tried, to trade for Luongo.     Epic fail on his assistant too, for saying they don't want to give up too many assets for Luongo. Fail.

We will gladly hang onto him into the regular season were his value will go up, once teams realize they need goaltending, or once Luongo starts playing real good again, the interest will be there.   Burke can go screw himself.

So they are potentially taking on 10 years of contract without speaking to Luongo or his agent?

You would think Gillis would grant them the right to do that, what a dick!

If Burke is counting on using the "I tried" excuse, he's going to be in trouble. MLSE will counter with "you failed".

Burke can state that he's comfortable with his goaltending, but it's just posturing. As is his feigned "disinterest" in Luongo. He's trying to minimize the cost, as are Tallon and Yzerman.

Of the three, Burke is the most likely to lose his job if he misses another postseason. Stevie Y will survive because he's Stevie Y and Tallon will likely get a mulligan.

However, fans and media in all three cities would look at their respective GMs and say "You should have made the deal" should they fail to make the playoffs next year.

If MG can't move Lu for a decent return, whether that be prospects, picks or players, the owners have to question  MG's handling of the whole Luongo/Schneider affair and subsequent expectations for Lu.

WIth a number of teams obviously in need of better goaltending, the difficulty in moving Lu (who's cap hit and realistic 6 year tenure are not a stumbling block) would seem to indicate Lu's reputation and/or the drama surrounding him, make him a far less attractive asset than MG and many Vancouver fans believe.

Lu's contract was MG's baby and he has to own-up to that.  The politics and awkwardness surrounding Cory and Lu is also of his making.  If he can't move LU after all has been said by him, Lu and others, MG has badly mismanaged the Vancouver goalie situation and as an owner, I would be concerned what that could mean for the team going forward.
