      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 4.0

3,456 posts in this topic

I could see the deal involving Toronto, but not not Lu going there, or it being a three way trade.

It'll be a team that nobody even thought wanted to upgrade their goaltending sending a goalie to Toronto and then trading for Lu.

That's how I see it going down. Something like Toronto trading for Hiller, and then Anaheim trading Ryan to Vancouver for Luongo plus a couple prospects. I don't think the situation has changed for him in Anaheim, so that's a possibility in my mind.

Oh man, if MG ever got Bobby Ryan out of ANA it would be great. Luongo +?

I find it hard to believe that Luongo would go to Philly.

I understand that "all signs point" to the Flyers and Bryzgalov with the mystery player, but I find it hard to believe that they would turn their back on him after the big contract and only one season. Yes I understand he played dismal in the post-season, but I find it unlikely that they would bring in Luongo over him (at this point).

What about Miller in Buffalo? Not too much longer on his contract and there were rumours there a while while back.

Luke Adam rumoured to be unhappy with treatment...

To Buffalo: Roberto Luongo

To Vancouver: Luke Adam + __________ (from Toronto) + Reimer

To Toronto: Ryan Miller

Sorry Smurf but Lu was great, made alot of big saves, and being at the game, it felt great to chant Luuu.

It wasn't goaltending, Lu did his part. We just couldn't execute.

Lou wasn't to blame for the Eberle goal, that was a sick snipe from a player with oodles of talent, who likely got a bit lucky but great players do.

Second goal, yes he should have stopped but it happens, he let in 2. We should have won letting in 2 goals and the amount of pp's we had.

What concerns me is the following, and yes its only game 2 (which even I've said) but what I'm worried about is:

1. Lou was really dejected after that loss. I think the longer he's here the worse its going to get for him, he's beating himself up now because everyone one else has...Kind of the way an abused kid starts thinking he's worthless because his dad beats him up...Its going to get worse mentally for him the longer he's here. Moreover, the mental aspects have never been his strongpoint.

2. This lack of emotion. Granted we're missing Kesler and Booth, who tend to bring alot of emotion/energy but the team just seems to acting like its preseason. (other than a few). Kind of like the 'we'll turn it on' come playoff time attitude last year, seems to have carried over...

3. I actually think the nucks have to think bigger than moving just Lou. I think they need an injection of enthusiasm, attitude, feistyness that they had many years ago and seemed to have lost, they have lost their 'swagger' and don't seem to really want it back...I have watched how pittsburgh, philly, boston have started and the seem hungry, we're nonchalant. Again, I know its game 2 but what worries me is this how we played going into the playoffs last year and its carried over.

4. Don't flame me, but I think perhaps Bieksa, Lou and perhaps Hansen need to be moved in a blockbuster for those things mentioned above. Not sure what they end up being, who they are but a change is needed to wake this team up and bring some emotion / hunger back into their game (a la kassian). This often happens to teams that have regular season success but never quite do it in the playoffs, they become content..and I'm worried we're seeing that..

Not sure if Toronto has the pieces to get Miller.

Wasn't there a Miller for Patrick Kane rumor in the summer?

I'm not sure if it would be worth it for Buffalo to dump Miller for Luongo though. Miller is younger and better. Unless someone was willing to offer something they couldn't turn down of course.

Maybe Chicago is willing to offer that deal still. They seem pretty desperate for a goalie and I'm sure Ehrhoff has been asked about Lu if Buffalo is truly interested.

Very possible that we see a deal sooner than later. Would explain Vandermeer being placed on waivers for an extra roster spot if we're taking back a goalie (Bryzgalov) and a player tomorrow.

Well then maybe it's Crawford to Toronto, Luongo to Chicago. I doubt it.

The point is, it could be alot of teams that people just assume aren't gonna trade their goalie.

But I see the precursor of a Luongo trade being a goalie not named Luongo going to Toronto. That's my prediction.

People are suggesting Luongo for Hartnell + 1st?

Are you kidding.
