  1. Yes, get him and his salary cap finally out of here (8 votes [9.30%])

    Percentage of vote: 9.30%

  2. No, he makes edmonton much better and i dont want to help a divison rival under any circumstances (20 votes [23.26%])

    Percentage of vote: 23.26%

  3. It completly depends on what they offer (58 votes [67.44%])

http://www.theprovin...5958/story.html

so jason botchford of the vancouver province is reporting that right before the CBA expired 1-2 new mystery teams jumped in on the Luongo sweepstakes

the big surpirse is that one of the teams is rumored to be the divisional rival Edmonton Oilers. wow wouldnt that be headline "Luongo traded to the oilers".

for me personally to even stomache the idea of Luongo going to the Oilers they would have to overpay and outbid everyone severly. i mean teams dont even like trading within the same confrence, let alone the same divsion.

not to mention that if Lu goes to the Oilers he instantly accelerates the rebuild and id go as far as saying making the Oilers a playoff contender and making the divison that much harder.

now the oilers do have a lot of good young players but lets get realisitc right now, these players are an absolute no-go: Nugent-Hopkins, Hall, Eberle, Yakupov, Schultz(willingly chose Edmonton),

so two questions:

1. are you okay at all with the thought of sending Lu to the oilers? for me only if the oilers grossly overpay

2. what would you ask from the oilers in a REALISTIC offer? for me i think something along the line of Paavari and their 2013 first round pick

As long as it's a young prospect, a third line center, and a 2013 pick, I'm happy. Maybe more since it's a division rival.

This is especially true if the old divisional realignment plan comes back to life under the new CBA.

Still... if the offer was good enough, it's worth the risk. I just don't know that Luongo would be willing to waive his NTC to go there.

Botchford is proven in the past that he doesn't know what he is talking about. In fact, he was the one who made up crap about Justin Schultz. How his parents had season tickets and all that junk. None of it was true. end of story

Good idea. And the only thing stopping that deal from happening would be the Edmonton Oilers.

Luongo would never waive his NTC to go to Edmonton... his wife would probably divorce him if he did.

If we do a trade with Edmonton for Luongo, me think we'll have to take Shawn Horcoff to get a deal done.

i dont know why eberle keeps coming. dont get me wrong i would love to get ebrele but that is totally unrealisitc, no way edmonton sends ebrele here for luongo. they would trade yakupov before trading ebrele.

i think a fair deal is what i originally said Paajravi and 2013 first. he is a big young forward with a lot of potential who has just kind of lost his spot in edmonton, especially with yakupov there now. and trading the first round pick shows edmontons commitiment to improving the team this year along with blanancing out this trade

I could definitely see Gagner coming back in the deal, they've tried to move him a number of times. Let's face it, Luongo's time is limited in both Vancouver and the NHL; even if it made the Oilers an instant contender they wouldn't have Luongo for that much longer. That's also a huge cap dump to possibly acquire a big free agent next summer. My proposal:

Van

Gagner
Hartikainen
2nd

Edm

Luongo
Raymond

My guess is that this trade happens Shawn Horcoff or Ales Hemsky will be in the mix. I can't picture the Oilers trading their younger players for Luongo.

I'm saying Aladeen a lot because http://forum.canucks...dpost__10922428

I bet when Schneider turns 38, he will have broken all of Luongo's records.

If we could pry Nail from the Oilers, I would be more than happy to trade Luongo. In Yakupov's KHL debut earlier this week, we saw flashes of a similar player we all once cheered for in Vancouver. Nail had a successful debut, demonstrating that he can play at the professional level and utilize his speed and skill to his advantage against players several years older than him.

Check out the play at 1:08. There's a slow-motion alternate-angle replay at 1:41. He put the puck through the defender's legs!

http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=eW83w0qDvwc

If he could split the defense and carry the puck like that in a Canucks uniform, I'm sure we would all be ecstatic to have him. This kid will become an elite player one day.

He is another player the Oilers would not consider trading, however. This is not a possibility. This is merely a post to assert Nail's value in relation to RNH's.

I would want one of Musil or Klefbom involved in any trade. Plus Paajarvi and top six forward.

So something like:
Luongo for Klefbom/Musil + Paajarvi + Hemsky

*Should be noted that I would only trade a premium player to a division opponent for a clear overpayment.

Gagner or Hemsky, or for a first round draft pick and Paajarvi. No way they give us one of those players plus a 1st. Also for all of you insinuating that we could get Eberle are hilarious. :lol:

EDIT: If we could package Raymond in the deal, that would also be satisfactory. He's from Edmonton, if there's one place he could shine besides here? It would be there with all their young players. :P

Botchford is an idiot....but not as idiotic as the thoughts of some posters around what we would or could get back in return for Lu, so far in this thread.
