      5. Please put all proposals into the proposals forum and NOT this forum. Proposals found in this forum will be moved or deleted without warning.

      6. Please report any threads or messages that violate these or other board rules to the administrators or moderators() Do not respond by posting spammy messages such as 'IBTL', and 'LOCK AND BAN', or by attacking other users. The report button is located to the bottom left of every post.

It says "General Manager of the Canucks Mike Gillis says there are 4-5 teams interested in Luongo, but there is only one (or not a single one?) team really in the race."

Here is a NEWS article for the NEWS SECTION (for those having a hard time)

http://m.espn.go.com/nhl/story?storyId=8854584

"We would upgrade our goaltending by the weekend if we could do it without taking away significant pieces," Nonis said. "It's not that we wouldn't upgrade. But for what's out there right now, we would set our team back, especially in the long term. And, we don't believe we have two goaltenders here that are not capable. We believe we have two capable goaltenders. Do we think they're NHL-caliber? The answer is yes, there's no question about that. The only question we have, and that people have, is the experience factor. And that's fair. You can't sit there and say we have two experience goaltenders because we don't. That's one area we would like to improve -- an experienced goalie that can play. At this point, there hasn't been a price reasonable enough for us to act on it."

Source: Tony Gallagher on team 1040 last hour

Tony, BMac and Taylor were discussing the Luongo situation. Essentailly they said.

-this all took place at the draft.

-deal was very close to being done between Vancouver and Toronto-perhaps even done- they were not sure.

-the trade was presented to Luongo and he asked if Florida was still interested.

-MG said FLA was still interested but not close

-Lou said no to the proposed TO deal and said he wanted to wait for florida.

Gillis:

“We have a potential deal in place with one team that has to do something with another player that they have — and it’s not who anybody thinks it is — and so we have to wait. (But) we’ve been offered packages that don’t fit what our plan is, what we need,” said Gillis.

Like, how?

“Excess salary coming back with a [throw-in] player who can’t play in our lineup. They say, ‘OK, we’ll do this, but you’ve got to take this.’ Well, we’re not taking it. We’ve had lots of proposals like that with good pieces that can help us but the other part doesn’t help us, and oftentimes they have term attached to them, so we’d just be turning around and buying out a guy."

Bob McKenzie@TSNBobMcKenzie

For all the Luongo "buzz" today in media and on Twitter, a deal is no closer to happening now than yesterday or last week.

Bob McKenzie@TSNBobMcKenzie

It's possible the "mystery" team is actually FLA or PHI, which is no mystery at all but Gillis's quote (not who you think it is) ambiguous.

Bob McKenzie@TSNBobMcKenzie

In other words, there may be no "mystery" team. If there is - not convinced there is but allow for possibility - deal not imminent at all.

Luongo's agent has told Ren Lavoie of RDS that he cannot currently comment on GMMG's statement about a potential deal in place.

Renaud Lavoie@RenLavoieRDS

The agent of Roberto Luongo, Gilles Lupien told me he has no comment to make on the information release by Canucks GM Mike Gillis.
