Excerpts:

Now that new coach John Tortorella has been hired, Vancouver Canucks general manager Mike Gillis can try to complete a long-delayed project in conjunction with Sunday's NHL draft -- trading goaltender Roberto Luongo.

"We're going to try and accomplish that goal," Gillis said this week. "We'll see what happens."


"I think it's a strong draft," said Gillis. "I think there's opportunity, but we don't have a second-round pick, because we traded it at the trade deadline to try and get stronger for the playoffs. That's a practice that I don't like, and I haven't liked, and I'm not sure what we can do with that."


Gillis expects the challenges and changes to spur trades.

"There's going to be a lot more moving parts now in the draft with compliance buyouts, a lower cap number, teams that are in a very narrow bend and want to improve -- and want to improve immediately," he said. "There's a lot of different synergies going into this draft, I think, than in past years."


Gillis said the Canucks will continue their practice of drafting "the best player that fits the profile that we like."

Bobby Mac on team 1040 today: Link (about half way through)

Highlight re: Lu-
- Thinks Lu gets claimed if he's waived.
- Thinks NYI still have some level of interest in Lu
- Doesn't think Philly is interested in Lu or Miller (too big cap hit). Phily looking for lower cost options (lol)
- Says Edm called about Lu at some point. But due to the NTC, nothing came of it.

While negotiations with Evgeni Nabokov have reportedly come to a standstill, the New York Islanders are entertaining other goaltending options for next season and beyond. However, Roberto Luongo no longer appears to be a potential target. As relayed by the New York Post, a league source said the Islanders are not in the mix for the Vancouver Canucks netminder.

Vancouver will probably be very reluctant to buy him out because they feel he has some value in the trade market and they would like to restock their cupboard with picks and prospects.

As per @RealKyper report, #Isles indeed interested in Luongo-DP swap. Only that deal though, so VAN may look elsewhere for asset in return.

Flyers Cap Space and Luongo

As soon as the Flyers file compliance buyout paperwork today to eliminate the contracts of Danny Briere and Ilya Bryzgalov from their salary cap figure, the club can officially announce the signing of Mark Streit. At that point, the team will have $4,181,478 of open cap space. This does not include the team's ability to use an in-season long-term injured reserve allowance for Chris Pronger ($4,941,429).

The team is still going to trade a defenseman both to alleviate the logjam on the roster and to free some additional cap space. The most likely candidate to get traded is Andrej Meszaros ($4 million cap hit, unrestricted free agent in 2014). Braydon Coburn ($4.5 million cap hit, partial no-trade clause) is a second possibility but only if the team heavily pursues an upgrade on the current top three on the blueline. Kimmo Timonen ($6 million cap hit) is likely to retire after the 2013-14 season.

As of now, cap space will NOT be a problem for the Flyers either in 2013-14 or in terms of extending the contracts of potential free agents before the 2014-15 season. Of course, that could change rapidly depending on the roster moves the team makes in the days and weeks to come.

With the Bryzgalov buyout, goaltending is one of the first issues the team is going to have to figure out for next season. While it is possible that former Calder Trophy winner Steve Mason could play to a similar level to the one he displayed in a brief late-season trial following his acquistion from Columbus, relying on Mason and either a discount veteran backup goaltender or another unproven starter would be an extremely risky strategy.

It seems more likely that the Flyers will either go for a split-time starting arrangement by signing someone such as impending unrestricted free agent Ray Emery or opt for a proven full-time starter candidate such as Roberto Luongo.

Vancouver Canucks general manager Mike Gillis is still clinging to hope that he will be able to trade Luongo in order to avoid burning up a compliance buyout that would keep the goalie on the payroll (but not the salary cap) for the next 18 years. Good luck with that.

Luongo would represent a goaltending upgrade for many teams in the NHL, including the Flyers. However, no team in the NHL wants to take on the 34-year-old's current contract, which carries a $5.33 cap hit and runs through the end of the 2021-22 season. In addition, there is no benefit to Luongo to formally waive his full no-trade clause at this point. As a free agent, he will more than make up the one-third difference between the buyout payments and his full current salary.

If and when Luongo hits the unrestricted free agent market, the Flyers are a candidate to pursue his services. At yesterday's Bryzgalov press conference in Voorhees, Flyers general manager Paul Holmgren said that Luongo is not an option. What that really meant is that the Flyers aren't about to trade for him. As a free agent, Luongo would immediately become an attractive option.

The team will have the cap space to pursue Luongo and, in conjunction with at least one more cap-space clearing move, still be able to address other areas of the roster. However, the Flyers don't want to put themselves in the same situation they did with Bryzgalov. Luongo is probably going to pull in something north of the deal Niklas Bäckström recently signed to re-up with the Wild (three years, $3.4 million cap hit). It could take a three-year or even a four-year deal in the neighborhood of a $4 million cap hit to sign Luongo, because the Flyers would not be the only interested team.

As an alternative, the Flyers could sit tight and simply wait until Luongo signs elsewhere and the goalie marketplace increasingly becomes a buyer's market. There are only a few clubs actively looking for goalies.

If the Flyers go for the split-time option with Mason, veterans such as Emery or Evgeni Nabokov could be candidates. The likes of Jose Theodore or Dan Ellis would be one-year backup possibilities if the Flyers are going to roll the dice with Mason as their starter.

If Tim Thomas elects to return to the NHL, he'd be another possibility. The Islanders would have the option of tolling his contract or setting him loose as an unrestricted free agent.

Negotiations between #Isles and #Canucks are ongoing. VAN has express they will not do a straight-up swap but they have very few suitors.

@DFriedmanWFAN 4m
Source: "Highly-unlikely" the NHL would allow a straight-up DiPietro for Luongo swap. Move would circumvent the CBA.

@DFriedmanWFAN 3m
Would be shocked if #Isles didn't make a counter-offer for Luongo. Not willing to go very high though, and they shouldn't be.

Hearing VAN Canucks are now contemplating using a compliance buyout on Roberto Luongo since they're having a hard time trading him.

From TSN:

1:22pm et - My sense is the Oilers feel Schneider would be an upgrade. But not a massive one, so they won't pay a massive price to get him. - Ryan Rishaug

1:22pm et - Blue Jackets very close on a new deal with goalie Sergei Bobrovsky. - Pierre LeBrun

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!

Not much out of Gillis. Says he's still prepared to be patient and isn't feeling pressure to make any deal.
