[Proposal] Luongo Deals

22 posts in this topic

Hai guise!

So lately, the Luongo to Toronto rumours have been going around and every other proposal is Vancouver and Toronto, but why not look at other teams with possible reasons to acquire Luongo. So basically, the possible list of suitors for a goaltender can be narrowed down to:

Chicago Blackhawks, Columbus Blue Jackets, Edmonton Oilers, Florida Panthers, Ottawa Senators, Philadelphia Flyers*, Tampa Bay Lightning, and the Toronto Maple Leafs. These teams could need goaltending in the near future and even though each destination is situationally and fundaentally different, each will be more and less likely to pursue a goaltender. Here is my take/proposal on each team.

*Contingent on Bryzgalov being bought out, staying in Russa or moved.

Chicago Blackhawks

The Hawks are a team that is difficult to deal with in my opinion. They are more than likely unwilling to move ANY core players in Toews, Kane, Hossa, Bolland, Seabrook and Keith, but do have assets which could be acquired in a deal with the 'Nucks. I see Leddy, Hjalmarsson, Hayes and Frolik the main movable assets.

To Chicago: Roberto Luongo, VAN 2013 3rd Round Pick.

To Vancouver: Nick Leddy, Jimmy Hayes, Kyle Beach

I would project a roster something like this:

Most of those trades wouldn't improve out team, at least not in the short run.

If we move Lu, then I think it is a must for us to get a top 6 forward in return.

Every deal, except the Chicago and Toronto one's, are absolutely horrible. Foligno is a 2nd/3rd line tweener, we have plenty of those. Stone and Methot do nothing to help us win now, which is the exact opposite of one of the reasons as to why MG is willing to trade Lu, to find a deal that help's us now, not in the future.

Kind of frustrated that the Toronto deal is actually the best of the bunch. Surprised to see Tanev as a toss in. I digress.

I appreciate the time and thought put into your post, though I feel there could be more balance and that Luongo could fetch a top prospect in each and every proposal.

if the flyers can rid themselves of their high priced goalie, i could see them in the mix as well.

ottawa doesn't need a goalie. Anderson played really well for them last year and they have two excellent young goalies in Bishop and Lehner. I'd also argue Florida's need for a goalie. Theodore has been good for them and Markstrom should be excellent. If they do feel they need someone to fill the gap until Markstrom is ready to take the number 1 slot I doubt they'll want a guy who is signed for another 10 years. They would just end up in the same situation that the Canucks are in right now. Stuck with an aging goalie with a difficult to move contract

Also, I find it funny that you riff on Tampa for haviing Lindback as their starter with his 40 games NHL experience when the Canucks seem perfectly comfortable going with Schneider and his 68 NHL games experience

I doubt Chicago would trade for Luongo.

I don't think CBJ would trade Nick Foligno right after trading for him.

Your Florida proposal seems realistic.

I think Ottawa is happy with their current goaltending situation. Especially with Robin Lehner moving his way up in the system.

I think Yzerman will give Lindback an opportunity to be his starter when the season begins.

Your Toronto proposal seems realistic. The Leafs did just trade for Carter Ashton and probably would prefer not to move him, but I don't think that would stop Brian Burke from pulling the trigger on a deal he likes.

Chicago Deal:

No thanks, this improves them greatly right away and does very little to nothing to improves our cup chances, and the only one of those 3 who seems like they will be anything good (Top 6 forward/Top 4 D-man) at the NHL level is Leddy, the other 2 are question marks to me

Columbus Deal:

We don't need another 2nd/3rd liner we have plenty (Higgins, Hansen, Raymond, Even Kassian Exc.) Goloubef doesn't seem like he will live up to his potential, and Mason isn't really needed and he is most of the value in the deal coming our way.

I dont think this deal helps us, so no thanks.

Florida Deal:

Mattias is overrated Imo, I do like Petrovic though but I dont think the value is quite fair. Maybe change the 2nd to a 1st and I might do it. But I don't think the value is quite there for us too pull the trigger.

Ottawa Deal:

Huge no, Stone is far from a sure thing, Methot is good but we already have a solid top 4 and I would rather just hold onto Tanev use him on the 3rd pair. I would rather just hold onto Tanev and the Value is absolutely terrible in this deal.

Tampa Bay Deal:

This one is probably the best in my opinion, but I don't think Tbay actually wants Luongo. So I don't think this happens.

Toronto Deal:

Not bad aswell, this one is a close 2nd to Tbay, Maybe change Ashton to either Kadri or Colbourne. I do like Bozak and Franson, even though I dont think we should get Franson cause there is no room for him. but not bad this one seems the most likely.

ConnorFutureGM thinks Luongo is worth the following:

1) Shane Obriens can of Hellman's (2/3rds full)

2) Hitchcock's belt

3) Mathieu Schneiders dentures

4)Phil Kessels turtle neck sweater

Connor don't quit your day job

am I right? Tell me I'm wrong- I'd like that

I'm surprised you put all that effort into this. Are you off the booze again, Lahey? Either way I'll check em out in a bit.

What I've noticed with a few of your posts in the proposals section, is that whenever the majority of the people that agree/disagree to a proposal, you come in and say the opposite to the people agreeing/disagreeing.

I like the Chicago trade. I think with Leddy's potential, Beach/Hayes shouldn't be included.

Then dump Ballard's cap-space and go after a big-name free-agent forward this offseason. If we dump Ballard's contract, and throw a ton of money at one of the UFA's, we could have a team with cup-winning potential

Sedin-Sedin-Burrows

Booth-Getzlaf(UFA)-Kesler

Higgins-Bozak(UFA)-Kassian

Volpatti-Lapierre-Hansen

Bieksa-Hamhuis

Edler-Garrison

Tanev-Leddy

Schneider

Lack
