Many of us thought Lou would be gone by now. Now with training camp beginning shortly, and a handful of the players already here, what is the deal with Lou?

I'm guessing Mike Gillis is certain of a lockout, or this would not be taking so long. I am all for waiting for the best offer, but Gillis should know that Luongo and Vancouver just won't work come late September.

Either we are extremely close to the deal or we are going to see Luongo in a nucks jersey this fall.

This is great, we should have a thread like this every day Luongo isn't traded.
Who wants to sign up for the it's "August 23rd and Luongo is still here thread"? I call the December 1st thread myself. :)

If there is a lockout, Gillis should trade him ASAP....why wait until he is even older and has less value.

There's 3 or 4 hundred other threads about this you could have posted in. Thank you for your wonderful insight though. I never would have noticed he hasn't been traded yet.

Almost as funny as creating a thread for every thought that pops into your head. There are two threads pinned in Trades, Rumours and Signings alone for Luongo, so perhaps you could discuss your summer vacation there.

I love how nearly 50% of the posts in the thread are about it being unnecessary, consequently bumping the topic and adding to its post count. If you dont make those posts these topic trickle off the main page and are quickly forgotten. oops I just bumped it again.

The Luongo trade will happen eventually, patience is the only option at this point for fans. The trade will come when it comes. That is, if it hasn't actually happened already and the teams are awaiting CBA/Doan decision to make final adjustments and announce.

Feminism will be outlawed. Mostly because it's a backwards idiotic viewpoint that doesn't serve any real progressive purpose.

Hey remember back in April when you made this thread: http://forum.canucks...963-special-ed/

So now you're the expert on why Luongo hasn't been traded yet. After you made a thread saying you won a bet, that luongo was traded? Yup you 'called' Lu being traded back in April....

Lol.

If you like looking at statistics to determine who's better, you're just a casual fan.

2.41 season GAA isn't very impressive. Let's not get into playoffs and his SV%.

Cory Schneider is the next Patrick Roy.
