So, the worst thing that happens is that we hold on to Luongo. Woopdy doo. He'll extend that list once the season gets started.

While I agree that Luongo will extend his list if no trade is made in the offseason, I have yet to hear if he has even been asked for a list. Last statement from GMMG was that he hasnt asked for one yet, he is just exploring options before he approaches RL. Just because RL potentially extends his list does not mean that more teams want him it just means he is willing to go to more teams.

Why would he need a list? He's not dick Nash with 15 teams interested. There are three maybe four tops and that's pushing it. At this point Gilly will make a trade then ask him. He most likely will waive it. Even if columbus acquired him he'd probably go at this point. He's been treated like crap by fans and media alike. He hates us. He doesn't play for us.

If he goes to the AHL, his salary drops. If he opts to stay at home he gets suspended without pay. If he reports, we still have the most dominant duos in the NHL. Win, win, win.

If Luongo were to be sent to the AHL his salary would no longer count towards the teams caap, but the owners would still be paying him his full NHL salary, he doesn't have a two way contract. Luongo put on a happy face and played nice with AV, MG and schneider durning the playoffs, but that happy face will be gone if he is riding the pine watching the games from the bench for a full season, and thats never good for team morale, so no win win win there either.
OMG! CRACK! YAY!

There's no chance you'll ever see Luongo get sent down to the minors. Thats not the way this organization handles their players.
That would send a horrible message to the players in this organization and it would be a lose/lose for both Luongo and the Canucks.

You'll see Luongo moved eventually even if it means Gillis takes less than what he's purported to be asking from Tor/Flor
And I'd bet you $1000 it'll be the Panthers.

The only thing is that Toronto really needs to upgrade goaltending. Whatever he might say that Burke of a Brian. Florida doesn't have to. 1 year, 2 max and Markstrom will be ready (if he is going to be ready I mean) and Florida seems to have faith in him. Don't spend your money just yet.

22 and he's had two knee surgeries already I believe........good numbers, but I'm not sure Fla has a the same kind of confidence in his durability as they have in his skill set.

Is it really that hard to add something to the conversation? Im on my phone and I think Gilly sounds funny. What the eff do you care what I call him. My post was coherant. Maybe you don't agree or don't even want to dignify it with a response. Sorry if nicknames bother you in hockey. Have you ever seen the players talk about one another. The "y" on the end is about all they do. You might find me writing "Gilly" annoying, but I find useless posts like yours even worse, that just dilute these mega threads and make people not even click on them anymore.

Jimminy Christmas. Something happen. They're starting to eat each other alive around here.

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.

High price. My guess: Versteeg and Bjugstad. Florida likely pushing Upshall and lesser prospects. Make no mistake-Luongo is valued commodity


I follow him on twitter, writes for various blogs, follows Canucks closely. This is his 'guess' on asking price, I echo it. Standard pieces for a trade of this magnitude:

- top 6 forward or top 4 d-man
- well above average prospect
- draft pick (or back up goalie via goalie trade)

Bjugstad is interesting cause he's huge centre (almost 6'6 according to him today). He's finished his 2nd yr at U. of Minn, and said today he will decided after training camp if he will leave college and join Panthers next yr. Wondering if Gillis 'patience' re: Lu trade has to do with Bjugstads decision? i.e Will he leave college and possibly join the Nucks 3rd line centre position next yr. Anywhoo, his brief interview today: http://miamiherald.t...thers-camp.html

Obviously not a guarantee Bjugstads in a package, but I'd imagine a young centre is key for Gillis, and Florida has a number of them. Anyone have any more details about his play?

5 years in a row Lu has had major meltdowns, so to say it was overnight is just wrong.
For all we know Lu requested a trade for family reasons.
Lu could very be being a great pro, or he could be pissed and told MG to trade him to Florida and only Florida and being a huge crybaby.
We as fans have no way of knowing what is happening.


This. If Lou is indeed playing hardball and is being unreasonable in his demands then I can't wait to see how Gillis throws HIM under the bus the way he did with Hodgson if and when he trades him.

I wish something would just happen. I'm sure Gillis means it when he says that he is no rush and that they have all summer. However I was surprised when the other shoe didn't drop after Schneider was signed.
There aren't a ton of franchise goaltenders out there so I guess Gillis waiting other teams out...
Negotiation-wise, even if it is clear that the Canucks would rather be without Luongo's contract it is still better to have something than to be waiting without it. Teams that need a #1 should be more desperate to get Luongo than the Canucks are to rid themselves of him.

I think it's more telling that the team doesn't play for him. He has to go... the sooner the better.

Price just signed for 6.5 a year.
Luooooo's cap hit will continue to be below market value as long as he decides to play.
The guy is a bargain - some team is going to get lucky and take advantage of the fact the Canucks have two elite goaltenders, and acquire one for a pair of first round prospects. Some other teams are going to look back during next year's playoff run and ask themselves why the hell they hesitated to ante up...
