      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

Recommended Posts

Maybe it's a trick of the light, but those don't look like they are made from the same material and the color is a bit off.. And maybe it's just how the jersey is hanging, but where are the Leaf shoulder patches on the Luongo jersey?

regards,

G.

According to @darenmillard as well as Pierre McGuire on TEAM 1040, it will be Kadri and Bozak for Luongo…

Daren Millard@darenmillard

@SmithSports_AAH I have heard bozak and kadri and I think luongo is a leaf post lockout

Like Mack Attack said above, add Franson to the deal and I think its a very good return. But Franson is signed to a full year in Europe. He was RFA so he won't be coming back if the lockout ends and we have a shortened season.

If his Swedish team Brynas allows him to come back early then he could though. Perhaps there is some sort of verbal agreement that they'll let him return if he agrees to an NHL contract once lockout ends.

Need to see Luongo wearing a Leafs jersey for it to mean something.

My 2 year old son had a Canucks jersey with his last name on the back.

Can anyone else confirm Pierre saying that on the team 1040? I believe it if its both Mcquire and Millard....... althought I would believe it more if it were Bobby Mac and Pierre Lebrun.

Yeah G, I don't think Gillis will get much more than that if he chooses to trade Lu right away after lockout ends. It will be a sprint to finish on a 42+ game season. If he really wants to get something good he will pbbly have to wait until next off season.

I think MG is on record saying he will keep both goalies if the right deal is not available.

IMO it a solid deal. Kadri is what he is, he's been playing great in the AHL lately. Had 2 goals last game, set a record with 5 assists couple of games ago. Bozak gives you a solid 3rd line C and Franson is a big body right shooting Dman. Bozak will be UFA but I think MG will be able to keep him after Bozak sees how good an organisation this is and the talent level of the team. Particularly if Canucks win the Cup. And if they do win the Cup and he leaves, its still worth it.

Teams who are deep down the middle usually have a good chance at the Cup. Sedin, Kesler, Bozak, Lappy, Manny, Kadri gives you a lot of depth. If someone gets hurt you move the other to C otherwise they can play wing.

The looks trade is a bit light for my tastes, even if it were drafted prior to the lockout. Assuming there is a season this season, getting Bozak for now only a few months (and then he could walk as a UFA) doesn't make for a great return.

Kadri has started to look pretty good with the Marlies, and considering the Leafs lack of quality centers, it suggests to me that Burke would want to keep him.

Kadri and whatever Gillis can get for Luongo isn't much of a return.

Franson would improve the deal somewhat, but even he might not want to stay around as a bottom-6 d-man.

Do you even know what my evaluation of Luongo is? I wanted to keep him, and trade the other guy. I think he's still very good, and he'll absolutely help whatever team he ends up on.

The issue is the external factors tied to this deal: his age, contract, NMC, and the fact that most teams are already heavily invested in goaltenders. Add that to the fact that Luongo's asked out, and other GMs see the position that Gillis is in, and none will want to overpay. This is not an ideal environment to be selling an asset like Luongo.

Very weak response on your part, as the guys that you had mentioned were mostly taken many years ago, and have offered ample evidence which confirms that they're not NHL-caliber players, unlike any of the TOR/VAN prospects discussed.

I mean valuation not evaluation. I know you have a major hard on for Lu, but somehow other teams won't. I'm gonna laugh when Gillis keeps him till the trade deadline, and then turns him in to a pretty sweet return.

Compare apples with apples then...

Florida got an All Star power forward, a blue chip dman prospect and a starting goalie for Lu. But now you are saying after six years the Canucks shouldn't get anything. ???

Posters are suggesting secondary pieces, not even close to what the Canucks gave up.

Lu, Sauve, 3rd

For

Rielly or JVR

Dreaming...

To be frank, there's no better fit for Lu than the Vancouver Canucks. Next best fit would be the Chicago Blackhawks. Is Florida really a contender, if they were to get Luongo? Not in my opinion. Toronto? Probably not.

And OK, you think that the trade deadline is the magical time where someone will pay a pretty penny for Lu's services. That would have to be a first, as I don't recall many 10-year contracts being exchanged at that time.
