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

4,388 posts in this topic

For all those purposing to trade Schneider instead, I think it's come a little too far (Lu getting benched for pivotal playoff games, all rumors of trades, etc) to bring Lu back as the starter. A message was definitely sent by starting Schneider in the LA series over Lu, and to have Lu start again this October would be very very awkward for everyone...

Last summer it was said that Schneider could have gotten us Jeff Carter. Imagine what he could get us now...

In my opinion, if we want to to win now we need to trade Schneider. He'll fetch us a good top 6 forward or a good top 4 defenseman.

Schneider to Winnipeg for Bogosian. He's a good young player who averaged 23:18 TOI a game and recorded 30 points (5G, 25A) in 65 games. Furthermore, he had 117 hits and blocked 109 shots. The 6'3" 215 pound defenseman is right handed and would hopefully be that defence partner we've been looking for for Edler.

Lu started this by saying he would be ok with a trade in the media. I believe MG was hoping to keep both. If he wants to play hardball then play hardball, he is under contract make him sit on the bench, If florida thinks they don't have to send anything of value for a top ten goalie then they will go without. If lou wants to limit the trade to one team giving that team complete leverage to offer nothing in return, enjoy the bench

As someone who openly hates Luongo this just ticks me off even more. This team gave you a chance when yo were known as a goalie who was stubborn and was all about himself. This owner gave you a 4 year $28 million dollar deal even though you cried like a little girl when you were traded to Vancouver. He also set your family up by giving you a 12 year 60 million dollar deal. Coach V, for better or for worse (usually worse), let you be the starting goalie for 6 years and openly backed you up even though you played terrible and choaked in the playoffs on numerous occasions. And this is how you repay us? Seriously. Absolutely pathetic.

I hope Gillis calls his bluff and makes him the #2 goalie for a year. Once the boys at the Province and Vancouver Sun and the fans are done with embarrassing him he will cry to Toronto.

Luongo, he deserves nothing better than absolute humiliation.

There's no way Florida gives up Huburdeu, Gudbranson or Kulikov but I would be ecstatic with Bjugstad. Get er done Gillis!

This one seems to have some legs though. There are numerous people calling the guy who tweeted it (I forget his handle) reliable. Take that for what it's worth.

I think Lou has evey right, though, to invoke the NTC and decide exactly where he goes. He didn't want this situation. He didn't ask for this situation. All he did was answer a question that I'm sure he didn't want to be asked. AV kinda put him in this position.

He deserves to at least play for whomever he wants if he's going to be run out of town. This coming from me, an anti-Lou guy.

I'm glad hes doing this, cause of "fans" like you. I hope he keeps it going and it pisses you off even more. Luongo leaving will mean this team will go back to mediocrity, just wait and see.

If this is true, I say, if a deal isn't logical for us, make him report next year. If he doesn't, suspend him without pay. Bring up Lack as a back up. Even if he does come back, Schneider is still our #1 and Lou sits on the bench. Humiliate him into opening up options. Let the fans speak. He will fold. He doesn't perform well under pressure. His arragance is part of what caused this, now deal with it.

lol, and people wonder why we have the most hated fanbase in the league.

Yeah, he hated coming here. That's why he carried our team on his back for 3 seasons, right? Oh boy, i bet he absolutely hated coming here and really solidifying his dominance on the league for 3 straight seasons. He's not all about himself, he just doesn't want to go to Toronto because the media would absolutely crush him.

Sekeres & Price discussed the idea of Versteeg for Luongo straight up. If that's the case, the Toronto equivalent is MacArthur + a pick or a prospect.

Both those playmaking wingers would really help out Kesler & Booth. MacArthur, Franson & a pick or prospect (Ross, Biggs, etc) for Luongo & Tanev?

He did not carry crap lol. I just recall momentous 2nd round playoff chokes that Luongo carried us to. GAA of 3.5+ in the two years vs Chicago.. The year prior he was part of the March meltdown. Last year, he was responsible as anyone for the game 7 loss, though the offence did have a part of it.

The only year he carried was his first year which to his credit was solely because of him

Right because it is not like Cory Schneider is a good goalie or anything?

If Tallon knows the only place Lu is willing to go is Florida then he can lowball all he wants. Why would he trade prospects when he can give away a salary dump. Lu has handcuffed MG into getting a poor return.
