      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.

Will there be a Luongo trade thread 5.0?

I'm gonna say no, there won't.

Guessing that the insanity will end - CBA will finally be dealt - and Luongo will be traded by page 84 of 4.0....

I say we get a CBA within several days if at all, and then it's one of two things: a deal right away, or a deal around the start of the actual season. I'm not sure we'd hang onto him unless the CBA is so prohibitive that we can't move him or have to buy him out, but I'll guess a trade by page 23, then the boards crash and the thread hardly moves while people try and login.

Should have made a poll. Templeton, should you make a poll?

I think now that if there is any kind of a season (48 games or otherwise), Luongo will remain on the team as Schneider's backup or 1A. Once the playoffs begin then Schneider is in the net full-time.

King:

"Like it or not, there probably won't be many changes to the Canucks until the Sedin's retire. Already married to too many long-term, big-money contracts that are mostly unmoveable."

Ok King let's get it rolling.

We all know a hundred times over that you put Luongo in this category, but him aside, please elaborate on who these unmoveable long term contracts are.

Elvis 15:

"Maybe we buy him [Phaneuf] out? Or there's the other suggestion of bringing back Komisarek to sweeten the deal for the Leafs so we can buy him out instead of them having to.

EDIT: for the sarcasm impaired, that was sarcasm."

+1. Loved it.

Its been my opinion that a deal for Lou has been done in principle pending a new CBA. maybe we'll find out !

Fortunately, it is your mere opinion!

We will find out indeed!

See what I did there!

"Unmoveable" may have been the wrong term. What I meant was that the Canucks are filled with guys with multi-year contracts, so there's probably not going to be any large-scale changes like making a big move for a guy like Phaneuf, which was the context of the discussion.

Booth, for example, is technically "moveable", as Florida moved him to us last year, in exchange for expiring contracts. In theory, we might be able to do the same thing, if we really wanted to, and if there's another sucker out there willing to take on Booth (who's more valuable today than he was a year ago, as more of his contract has been consumed). Gillis, though, hasn't shown any urgency in moving guys with bad contracts (Ballard, Malhotra, etc.), so it's unlikely to happen.

I'm not quite clear about what exactly 101 did there, but the days immediately after the CBA will cerainly be interesting.

If there is an agreement in principle it was reached when teams weren't supposed to be discussing players.

I hope things kind of play out like this - Toronto had made a 'secret' offer that they were under the impression would land Luongo as soon as the lockout ends. The lockout ends, someone else outbids Toronto, and the Leafs wind up with the leftovers of whoever else lands Luongo. :bigblush:

I am completely convinced that if Luo gets traded he will go to a left field team that can give us a reliable goaltender

To San Jose

Luo

Higgins

3rd

To Van

Niemi

Clowe

1st

Of corse all of you homers will say we are overpaying but in reality both teams need to feel they are getting the upper hand.

SJ is more desperate than we are to keep the window open. I don't think Clowe likes SJ he constantly lays that out in interviews. He would help this team and MG would be all over locking him up.

You wanna buy out a goalie? I think neimi would be an easier buy and probably relatively easy to move when lack is ready

Higgins is awesome but Clowe is more awesome both UFA's

We give SJ short term cap relief they give us long term cap relief.

We will not get high end prospects for Luo or capspace

it will involve a money exchange. So MG can help the team now and a contender can fit Luo in.

The buy out is kind of an interesting tool. We could take a big contract from a team that cannot afford a buyout in exchange for prospects. Like a DePetro. I can't imagine what the islanders would give to unload that sucker. Not saying Luongo would be part of that but it would be another way to acquire youth rather than using Luo.

I've wondered all day if new teams could be interested in luongo due to the chance to ditch the goalie they have.

Assuming there is some kind of agreement, it could be that Gillis and Burke agreed to some basics of a deal prior to the lockout and left a few other parts up in the air pending the new CBA being signed (also not necessarily anticipating that the lockout would go on for as long as it has).

So, it might have been Luongo to Toronto for Kadri, Bozak, and a pick of some sort (this is just for example purposes only and it's a low return in my opinion). Once the CBA was signed, Gillis would know if he really needs to accept some cap back to the Canucks, and Burke would be able to add something to what is coming back to the Canucks to pay for the cap dump.

Gillis might also want to re-visit whether Bozak was part of the deal considering he'd pretty much just be a rental at this point, or Burke might want to re-think having Kadri in the deal.

Something like that perhaps is what he means? I'd also assume that this would mean that Gillis could be handcuffed if someone showed up with a better offer, unless he was willing to break this gentleman's agreement witih Burke.

regards,

G.
