You're not getting Versteeg, period.


Is it that unreasonable? Ownership wants Luongo and has told Tallon that adding his salary isn't an issue. Besides, with Mueller signed and Huberdeau coming up there are less spots open. Versteeg is a good player, ideally a 2nd liner on a contender. You wouldn't give up a 2nd liner for a star goalie? I get that goaltending wasn't an issue this year, but are you really confident in a Theodore/Clemmenson tandem getting it done again?

No. I wouldn't give up a 26 year old winger who scored 20+ goals four times out of his five year career for a 33 year old top 10 goalie.

What are the chances of meeting Edmonton in the playoffs..?

You mean what are the chances Edmonton doesn't tank like they always do and actually make the playoffs for once?

If we could get toews I'd be down! but seems improbable


try impossible. Chicago is already dealing with the roster changes after 2010 and they're not about to give up their captain, leader, and core.

Don't want him anyway. Not a good fit for Vancouver - and don't want his 4.5 million cap hit or whatever it winds up being. Raymond could just as readily put up 50 points as a second line winger, at a 2.2 million cap hit, stifling speed on the backcheck / good two way game. If the Canucks are going to upgrade their top six, they'll need a power forward on the right wing, something Florida and Toronto don't really have to offer - something they are trying to land in making a bid for Doan. I'm not going to assume Doan is going back to a thinned out Coyotes, or simply fishing for the biggest offer.

Regarding your other post, I'm not sure if you were still talking about Vancouver when you made this point...

"The bottom two lines seemed lackadaisical, phlegmatic. I mean, they were skating, but didn't seem to get anything done"

but if you were, I'd have to fundamentally disagree.

The Canucks third line has actually been outstanding - Higgins and Hansen are serious two-way, energy players who don't take shifts, let alone games off - they have been great regardless of who has centered them, and often the Canucks best line. The fourth line with Lapierre and Malhotra are a seriously effective defensive zone start line...

The Canucks could use a third line center, could use a physical right handed shutdown defenseman, could use a natural right winger, but really nothing pressing - they have another young center who imo will be every bit as capable as Hodgson was (Schroeder) - their needs are really limited to upgrades/depth - they also just drafted a couple more centers in the 1st and 2nd rounds. If Florida wants the stability that Luongo brings, they'll have to be willing to part with a bit of youth.

I don't think that Lu would be a cap dump on Florida, they won't even consider trading him for less that a top 6 forward/top 4 dman + good prospect + pick. I can't see Lu just being thrown out to open up cap. He will have to bring back at least these pieces. I also think that it's still a possibility that he will come to training camp in a Canucks jersey.


You have the same unrealsitic sense of his value that Gillis apparently has.

Luongo publicly said "it's time to move on" , why aren't people moving on?

We aren't getting anybody stellar for Luongo. Maybe a reasonable roster player. As fans we should be happy about gaining 5.33M in cap space. Trade him for a song.

About the same as LU coming through for a whole playoff series... ZING!

No really, I love Lu, he must laugh his ass off reading this board

I swear, I'd love to hear what players think about our market, people say it's ridiculous to think fans/media can 'run a guy out of town' and I agree, however.. There has to be an effect, and for people who say Lu's a head-case, I would argue it's the fans who made him that way!

The fans didn't turn Luongo into a headcase, the Blackhawks did in 2009, he hasn't been the same in the playoffs since.
I used to be a big Lu fan although I thought he was overrated when he came here from Florida. He then changed my mind, then 3 years of meltdowns happened and he changed my mind back.
I think most Canuck fans were a fan of his at some point but times change.

Except Luongo no longer wants to play there. Schneider probably doesn't want to split time, but be a starting goalie, Gillis agreed to move Luongo, and i doubt ownership wants to write a paycheck of nearly $11M dollars to a goalie tandem.


It's foolish to expect someone who played 5-6 games a month TOPS to suddenly play 50-60 games a season and then still be able to put up all-star numbers and then even have a chance to do the same thing in the playoffs.

$11M for a Stanley Cup? Yeah, it's worth it.
