i was browsing facebook when fourth period magazine posted this http://www.thefourth.../fla120715.html
all it says pretty much is that he filed for arbitration and no progress in negotiations.
you think he could be coming to vancouver after all?

I think that he is a possibility, not my first choice of players I would go after but he is a good player.

I can't believe I am saying this but I think I would rather just try for Franson + Bozak out of Toronto and get this over with. So many Lu threads.

He fits our needs.

The team he is *owned* by cant seem to sign him.

The team he is on needs a goalie and wants LU

I think its fair to say the chances of him coming to van are quite high unless gillis specifically doesnt want him for a multitude of possible reasons.

versteeg, gudbranson, weiss are all possibilities but not Huberdeau. Florida will not budge on him.

I wouldn't mind Versteeg... but thats really assuming we can't get Bjugstad.

Definitely not my 1st choice, unless there was a + added to Versteeg

Having Doan and Versteeg on the same roster would load us with wingers, and we need a center, so Weiss would be a better choice. As Doan is probably not coming, either Versteeg or Weiss would be awesome.

Yeah
1rst choice doan
Then if we trade with panthers I'd be ok with versteeg and 1rst
If we trade with Toronto something like lupul , 1rst and komisirek for Luo and Raymond

Luongo, Raymond and Alberts for Versteeg, Gunbrandson and Theodore. Upgrades in skill and youth both defensively and up front. Theodore is an ideal backup for Schneids. Veteran guy who can accept a backup role but step up as a starter if needed.

I would Package a first with Luo and possibly get Gudbranson and Versteeg.

How about,
Tanev(Softens the loss of Gudbranson)
Raymond(Softens the loss of Versteeg)
Luongo
1st

For
Gudbranson
Versteeg

You said it yourself, youre just a big Luongo fan (nothing wrong with that) and have the blinkers on and all youre seeing is Luongo overvalued. You will need a 1st and/or a quality prospect to land them both, hence Tanev.

Are you %@!ing kidding me? So you guys are seriously proposing we trade a high end starting goaltender who is just 1 season removed from a vezina nomination, a talented, young defensive defenseman who will be a top 4 in a few years, a top 6 forward, and a 1st round pick for....

An undersized 20 goal scorer and a defenseman who accomplished -19 and 8pts in his first season?

What a ridiculous over payment.

Versteeg is a possibility.

I really wonder when people will stop thinking we can get Gudbranson out of FLA. That is a non-starter, there is no way Tallon even begins talking if Gillis mentions Gudbranson.

Huberdeau, Gudbranson and Kulikov are not going anywhere, especially not for a goaltender they don't desperately need. They have a rejuvenated Theodore and Markstrom coming up the pipeline.

If we somehow pull Doan out of Phoenix, then I can see us going for Matthias, Ellerby, Clemmensen and a 2nd for Lu and Raymond.

If we aren't able to sign Doan, then I can see us going for Versteeg, Matthias, Ellerby and Clemmensen for Lu, Raymond and a 1st (plus whatever prospect Florida has their eye on).

Florida has already made some moves to bolster their lineup down the middle which has made players like Goc and Matthias expendable. I like Goc but I believe that Gillis would obviously be more interested in gaining Matthias. Raymond will likely be dealt to them as he fills a need they have on leftwing.

Clemmemsen comes back to make room for Lu since IIRC Theodore has an NTC and a desire like many blue hairs, to retire in Florida. Ellerby is young, has size and potential; and would be an upgrade over MAG for defensive depth.

I would absolutely prefer Doan over Versteeg, but if we end up with the latter, I would hardly call it a failure. I think either player would be a solid addition to the roster. I like these trade scenarios far more than the BS proposals Leafs fans are pushing.
