      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

Now that Weber is a goner, I say we push for Gudbranson (assuming we make a Lou trade with Florida).

He is a straight beast. He's exactly the type of player the Canucks need.

If for some miraculous reason we get Doan, as well as Gudbranson, holy sh*t our roster will be ridiculous.

Quite frankly I'm bummed right out over the Weber deal. I thought the big deal this summer would be a deal to bring him along with Doan. It is all going down in flames.

A little dissapointed in Weber. Also confused how Philly affords a contract with a CAP that might shrink to $52 M. I guess that isn't his problem and Philly looks pretty solid for a CUP run. I am sure that Gillis had to walk away and look for cheaper options. In the long run it probably is smarter to do that.

This puts more pressure on the Lou deal as Gillis will be looking for a premium d-man.

I agree if we can get a BIG decent D man like Ellerby and a big center or play making center I think Doan would want to come here more.I'd like us to get that for Luo and a draft pick and leave the prospects alone so we can get better and have a pick even if 3rd or 4th rounder!Weber is looking for a chance to win now and could ask for a trade if the preds match and dont get better!but far as Luo I hope MG gets something done fast as the longer it takes the more Luo will be saying things in public and will force a trade so we wont get as much.I knew this was going to be bad for MG if he didnt act fast!Far as people say he should wait you are so wrong as Luo will force a trade and we will get way less for him!

As per Eliotte Friedman, the Panthers are unwilling to move Markström, Gudbranson or Huberdeau in a deal involving Luongo.

Our chances of landing Weber were always slim. MG has never offered as large a contract that Philly did and it was obvious that Weber wanted big bucks. Our prospect pool is pretty bad and it wouldn't make sense for Nashville to trade with us when there are more enticing pieces out there.

Like i said in the Weber thread if he goes to Philly some teams in the east will have to make a move and goaltending is the way to stay on par with the Flyers. Guess what team has a world class goaltender for sale?

Your on some strong Breaking Bad powder if you think Florida would be willing to let away their entire future for a 33 year old goalie.

I remember he came on the radio with the Moj (of all people) when he was an RFA, and Moj asked him straight up

"Do you ever see yourself as a Canuck? Like let it be now, or in the future?" and the way Weber responded you could tell he wasn't interested in the slightest. Didn't even answer the question just said "oh, I know a lot of athletes love playing for their hometown team but for me it's more than just that, there are lots of factors..."

Plus signing a 14 year term, the guy is purely motivated by money as his primary focus... Not sure I want a guy like that on the Canucks no matter how skilled they are.
