The Blue Jays.


It speaks volumes that a .500 team is looked upon as a beacon of success.
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!

Well if a trip to the Stanley Cup finals can spark a generation of fans for the Canucks, I'm sure back to back world series titles can do the same for Blue Jays fans, if not more.

The owners in Florida have given Tallon the green light. That basically means go and get him.

Hockey's a business. Florida's owners want to make money. You don't do that by losing all of the time.

Now that they've gotten a taste of playoff success, I'm sure they're dying to get back there. Enter Luongo. They don't make the playoffs next season without a number 1, too many teams in the Southeast will get better.


Brodeur could be a factor here though. For the same cap hit and actual less $$, they could maybe get Marty for 2 years and have a chance to develop their young talent and have a proven #1 to take them into the playoffs. It could be more attractive than Lu's cost, cap hit and term.

My guess is nothing happens untill after July 1st. I'm thinkin Tallon might see if gillis bites at the lowball to go into July 1st with more cash

Like I said before, don't underestimate the value that Luongo has as a marketing machine. He's a big name player that puts fans in the seats, regardless of what many Canucks fans think. He's an exciting player to watch.

That's what Florida needs. Something to make people in Florida talk about the team. No one currently on their roster will make them do that.

I agree but Marty is a pretty attractive commodity in that regard as well. Numerous cup rings and a final appearance last year. Sure would bring hope to the Florida faithful.

Lu could be like the return of the prodigal son. He wants to be there because it's Florida not just for $$ or a cup.

Either would be a good move for Florida.

Snake Doctor, on 23 May 2014 - 10:41 AM, said:snapback.png

Miller is not on our list. It's Lack as our #1. There is no reason we would have traded both Schnieder and Luongo if we never intended to give Lack the #1 starting job.  Furthermore, the salary and term Miller is looking for is not in our favor.

The difference is that there's no way Marty goes to Florida. Like many players, he hates losing. In one of his older interviews he said he almost retired the year NJ was terrible which was the year they drafted Larson and he loved playing this past year because they were a good team. IF he leaves NJ it would be to a team like Chicago or Detroit where he can have success. At most he's got a year or 2 left in him, so no way he wastes that time with a team like Florida or Toronto.

Lu makes 6.7 mill the next few years. If you were florida wouldn't it be smarter to at least wait to see if Marty is gonna test the market and offer him a short term contract in that ball park. That way you get a much more accomplished veteran, not to mention hall of famer if not best goalie ever to play the game who can still play at a high level. Yea hes quite a bit older than Lu but would cost them no assets. Also, this way they could wait and see if Markstrom really is their goalie of the future. Seems like the smarter move to at least consider looking into. Maybe they want Lu bad, but I don't see why they would. They aren't trying to save cap space or anything, so a 6.7 salary is a 6.7 salary any way you slice it.

Why did SamJam get kicked out of a bar?

Because he only payed for 90% of his drink!

In my eyes drouin is overrated he can score in the qmjhl but did nothing in last two gold medal games that canada lost. Fox will be better pro than him talk to me in five yrs

Gaudreau has one NHL goal whereas all your "prized" prospects have none.

   ryan kesler is going to the chicago blackhawks ...       quote me on it

While resolution in Luongo file expected fairly soon, it won't be before July1. #CONFIRMED He will be traded to either #Panthers or#Leafs.
