      Forum-specific Rules   07/11/2017

      These are board specific rules for the Trades and Rumors forum designed to provide organization and a better experience for everyone. Please review these rules before posting new threads. 
        THREAD ETIQUETTE   1. Please search for an existing thread before posting. This forum can be very fast moving, so it's understandable if redundant threads are inadvertently posted. In such a case, please use the report feature to request removal of redundant threads.    2. Provide a clearly identifiable topic title so that users can readily understand the content. The title should include any and all teams involved, as well as player names or other personnel involved as appropriate.   3. All trades, signings, rumors and other news MUST include a linkable source. Simply posting the name of the source is not enough. Effort should also be made to copy and paste the full article, or at the very least the relevant portion of text from the source to the first post of the thread. Moderators may remove low-quality threads in favour of high-quality threads. 

      Affixed to the front of your title should be a label that identifies the type of transaction that is taking place. For all trades use [TRADE]. For all signings use [SIGNING]. For all waiver-wire transactions use [WAIVERS]. For all rumours use [RUMOUR].
      For articles or news items that don't fit into the above categories, affix an appropriate label of your choice such as [NEWS], [ARTICLE] or [MISC].   4. When the status of a thread changes a new thread can be created. The new thread should reflect the change and help focus the discussion on current events. e.g. Someone may create a new thread when a rumor becomes a trades. The old thread will be locked by the moderating team.    5. Do not misrepresent the contents of your thread or post false trades or rumors. Trolling will result in a permanent suspension. 

      SOURCES   The following source types are considered INVALID. Any links to posts or threads on other message boards Any links to personal blogs Any news heard on the radio that does not have a link to an audio vault or podcast Any news seen on television that does not have a link to online video Any news spread by word of mouth
      Additionally, certain sources may be be blacklisted due to poor credentials, clear traffic-mongering etc. Blacklisted sources will be posted here. 
      Thank you for your co-operation and please PM the Administrator or Moderators if you have any questions, concerns or suggestions regarding this forum.

[Discussion] Roberto Luongo Trade Thread 3.0

3,003 posts in this topic

I meant in the playoffs. The discussion was related to Luongo not being able to be counted on when the pressure was on.

How he plays is not irrelevant at all. If he is playing well, then during the season there will be suitors. There is a lot more opportunity once teams have assessed their goaltending situation halfway in to the season. If Lu is hot near the trade deadline, then I guarantee there will be teams ready to take him on a run.

I might point out that Lu has not given a list of acceptable teams, or said he won't go to any specific ones. YOU may think he has a two team list, but if a contending team wants him for a playoff run, then I doubt he says no. That is my guess, but at least I recognize that it's just a guess.

Distraction to who? What does Lu's cap hit have to do with distracting the room? If he gets all prima donna, then there might be a distraction, but I think you are over estimating the situation. Again, that's my guess, and I recognize that I am just guessing.

Chances are that the goaltenders will play 50/50 especially with such a compressed schedule.

Also, you do remember what our team looks like even without the return from Lu, right? It's not like we have a terrible team while paying him 5.3M to play every other night.

You're the fanboy who can't see any flaw in how the Canucks have dealt with the situation.

What's wrong with waiting for the right deal to come? Because that's what MG has been doing all along. If MG doesn't find the right deal for Luongo, which had been the case all summer, there is absolutley nothing wrong in keeping him and Schneider.

Absolutely nothing wrong with allocating $5.3M to your backup goalie, eh? Wow.

Sounds like Gillis hasn't actually mishandled the situation - all you've got is what if he doesn't move Luongo after the CBA, or what if he waits to the trade deadline, or who knows what 'what if' you are actually whining about?

What if

Roberto Luongo is not an unknown commodity. He's a great goaltender.

Gollumpus, always good to see you.

You were the original dude with a sign off, and it always gives your posts an exclamation mark.

Don't let TOML steal your schtick.

regards,

W.

and you're the future boy GM muahaha - good luck with that.

who would cut hasty deals out of fear of over-estimated future 'distractions' and what if situations...

"If Luongo were to be playing backup"...."What if he gets injured" blah, blah...

Sounds like Gillis hasn't actually mishandled the situation - all you've got is what if he doesn't move Luongo after the CBA, or what if he waits to the trade deadline, or who knows what 'what if' you are actually whining about?

"he would get restless and would likely start putting pressure on Gillis to make a move. This is where he would become a hge distraction."

What if you whiners wait and see what Gillis gets/does? As it stands, you are setting interwebz records in this thread for the most premature, peevish, what-if whining.

You and King are like the Energizer versions of a broken clock.

Wow, with all that blind faith you have in Gillis you either are Gillis or his mistress boyfriend.

Because they would be foolish and short-sighted to assume retirement. They need to take Lou's deal at face value.

There's the distraction part and the risk part that makes trading Luongo ASAP appealing.

If Luongo was moved for something less than his value, would you be defending that trade on the grounds that Gillis had to do it for the good of the team, or would you be complaining about what a bad trade it was?

The Wolves lit up Markstrom for 6 last night. He is having a slow start. Might bring Florida back into a deal.

He's going to be moved for something that will have less of an impact on this team - that is for certain.
