I would have loved it. It's a good deal hockey-wise and it would have pissed off all the emo teenagers who think Bolland is the "biggest douche evar!"
Orland Kurtenbach and Dennis Kearns had just been torched 8-1 by the Habs, but they still took time to come out to meet us, some fellow BC boys who were playing hockey in Montreal. THAT"S what being a Canuck is!

You have much to learn about negotiating Grass Hopper!
:lol:


Ok there Vegas, I won't say that's a rookie mistake, but you're a little off the mark there - calling Vintage Canuck "Grass Hopper"... He posts A WHOLE LOT of actual information here, and unlike the vast majority, goes very light on the opinion with his posts...asks questions for discussion sake that he has his own answers to.... a miss with that comment.

I don't think they want a roster player from the Panthers. I don't see enough Cap room left if they did so and still wanted to be able to sign Doan.

That could change if Doan signed elsewhere, but I have to believe that if Tallon were willing to part with a couple of the 2nd tier prospects, (Bjugstad, Howden, Matthias, Petrovic) a deal could be made tomorrow.

My guess is that Tallon wants MG to take on some salary and that is what's holding things up.

Once the Shane Doan issue is resolved, it should make things a lot clearer. Gillis might be willing to take a player from the roster if Doan signs in Phoenix, etc. and he wouldn't be able to if he managed to bring Doan to Vancouver.


End of the day I think Doan will go back to Pheonix. Although Florida doesn't have much to offer other then prospects.

Maybe fundamentally, Luongo doesn't, want to move. He did sign long term in Vancouver, assuming he'd be staying.

He got thrown under the bus by his own coach in favor of a rookie, but Hodgson was never given a rightful spot by Kesler's injury and Kassian will is a Lucic being turned into a Bernier. What AV pulled usually costs the coach's job promptly.

Luongo then only mentions Florida (home) and Chicago (biggest Canucks rival). To me it sounds as if it is by design he mentioned those teams so as to stay in Vancouver.

Move the kid for some offense and LU'll get you the Cup.

Move LU out and every year the Canucks chances to win a Cup let alone make the playoffs decrease.

LU ought to be heavily motivated to regain his rightful position against a rookie goalie. If so, the cheers will come back fast and all will be forgotten. He's only a few saves from doing so.

Except for the ever hating Vancouver media and its hateful listening fans who will concentrate on hating LU and demand Gillis' head because of an "atrocious" cap hit on goaltending wreason reality, such numbers are more than all of them combined will ever see in a lifetime and therefore do not understand to say the least.

I do realize that 90% of Vancouver fans are of the good kind. That 10% obnoxiously poor and narrow minded, self righteous loser kind is the problem we all face. They are loud, they want to destroy our team and they don't know how to handle adversity outside of firing, giving up as running someone out of town like an 1800's bar murder.

You know who you are.



so let me see if I follow...
keep Lu
shouldn't have traded Hodgson - he never got his rightful spot
fire AV - he threw Lu under the bus
Kassian will be a failure due to AV
Lu is trying to make it difficult to trade him
Trade Schneider
Without Lu the Canucks will go straight downhill
Hateful media and fans - fans don't make enough money to understand MG or Lu.
90% are good / 10% are the destructive, fire people and run others out of town type.
Something about someone being self aware.

you got the some of the media being hateful part right.

I know Gillis will get a good return for Luongo, and I'm holding my breath that its Gudbranson. 6'5 shutdown guy and mean, exactly what the Canucks need more of on their backend.

Here's a couple things on Luongo from Elliotte Friedman's column:

25. Let's look at some player situations. First, Roberto Luongo. It's not exactly a state secret that he wants to go to Florida and in a perfect world, the Canucks would send him there. There's a bit of a stalemate now, as the Panthers feel Vancouver is asking too much and the Canucks feel Florida is squeezing too hard. One of the issues is prospects. Florida, which has done a great job stocking the system, is understandably unwilling to move Jacob Markstrom, Erik Gudbranson or Jonathan Huberdeau. An educated guess is that Vancouver has inquired about the "next level" of talented youth, like a Nick Bjugstad or Quinton Howden. Don't think Florida likes that, either. So, between that and the fact the Canucks don't want to take bad salary in return, things aren't really moving at this time.


Thanks for posting.

Florida - Van is an odd situation. They only have a certain amount of $$ they can spend per season on a roster - they're not concerned about exceeding cap space. They're also concerned about filling seats, particularity the controversial 'Club Red' section. I think their biggest interest in Luongo is to help with that issue. With the Canucks org, they have lots of $$, but are concerned with exceeding the cap with ineffective contracts. There has to be a happy medium.

There has to be some sort of 'strategy' where Florida can offload a contract, but it doesn't effect Canucks available cap space. I'm not a CBA expert, and it will likely change. Maybe Florida waives Upshall next season, and if no team picks him up, Canucks can give Florida a 7th round pick for him and leave him in the minors. Who knows, something like that. Gilman is genius, he can figure it out.

The LA Kings want Matt Frattin and more in a deal for Jonathan Bernier. Looks like it could get done. See Terry Koshan http://www.torontosu...-on-leafs-radar

No way the kings trade Bernier with Frattin being the center piece...Frattin sucks.

It would be funny if the Canucks traded for Bernier to keep the Leafs from getting him. :bigblush:

Totally agree with you, Gudbranson is what I'd like seeing as a return for Luongo. Exactly what Canucks need.

Unwilling to move Markstrom? Why the hell would Gillis even ask about him? We have Lack, Cannata and Honzik in the system.

I think that the amount of non-information, and the overwhelming amount of regurgitated biased opinions in the last 140 pages means that we have less information than the first page.

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.
