      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'm almost certain Lu is going to the Sharks, and probably today.

1) Gillis wouldn't have said what he did about "waiting on a player" unless it was immediately pending. Gomez has been with the Sharks for days now, and the contract was basically inevitable.

2) Sharks have a TON of centers: Thornton, Marleau, Couture, Pavelski, Handzus, Desjardins...now Gomez?

3) Niemi hasn't been getting it done for them at all. Goaltending is their #1 weakness.

4) Thornton, Marleau, and Boyle aren't getting any younger. They have to go for it this year and next.

5) Sharks have a good team - no reason Lu wouldn't want to go there.

My guess is Pavelski, Niemi, and a pick/prospect for Luongo and Raymond. Cap hits are a wash.

Possibly the worst proposal of all time.

When Gillis said roster player, prospect, and pick, he wasn't referring to a perennial allstar, a top tier prospect, and a lottery pick

yes

i am goalie bot

i must stop every shot

i read goalie texbooks

i stop even crazy snipes because i am textbook perfect

i am goalie bot

please increase my rebound control now that you have more experience points

lmao

blame? the shot was the kind of shot maybe stamkos, crosby, malkin and ovechkin can pull off...and eberle did

read what you said at the every end "damn impressive shot....at that speed, angle etc"

Anyone who's played competitive hockey, you know what their reaction was to that highight reel goal? Holy crap what a snipe.

Canucks fans, who do nothing other than play ps3 and have never competed on the ice and only know how to critisize- "oh his shoulders weren't square" (aka - "thats what I hear all the pundits saying..so i'll repeat it")

Wow...as I said goal 2 sure...goal 1...umm wake up

wouldn't that be a double buyout if Vis is staying in Russia? Doubt ownership would bite on that. That said, I think it's a reasonable proposal, but I think Van has to add a pick or mid level prospect

Edit

Thought gomez signed, according to thread in CDC but now it looks like the title may be misleading.

Luongo, I would think, has settled himself with the fact that he is NOT returning to Fla..........NYC has the largest Italian American community in the country, and it's also NYC.

I feel the same way. Why would he do this now..

1. He's attempting to take heat off the team after back to back losses. He has changed the narrative until Calgary game on Wednesday.

2. Gillis is attempting to raise Luongo's value.

3. MG is telling the truth.

I think the most likely scenario is #1.

It's not that we really need Ward that's why I want him, it's that GM would want us to take him as part of package. We would have to take back a bit of salary. MoJo is 22 years old in his EL contract.

MoJo + 1st for Luongo is not going to happen. That is asking for too much.

Oates is preaching an up tempo game. They may want a speedy guy like Raymond.

In a star player trade I don't recall the last time it was not a package deal. I am 100% certain that there will be other player(s) going along with Lu.

Having said the above about Ward I think he would help with some size and grit. Also had a pretty good playoff with NSH 2 years ago. Need a guy who can rise to the occasion when chips are down.

There's no way I want Marleau. Bieksa would just beat the crap outta him again.

I don't see it. I don't think they would trade Pavelski.

If it was gonna be anyone it would be Clowe IMO. He suits our need more than Pavelski does.

I would do Clowe, Niemi, and a pick/prospect for Luongo+

Clowe is a UFA after this season. I don't see how they make that deal unless he agrees to an extension when he arrives.

Pavelski is a UFA after next season. Both would be short term players. Clowe for 1 season >> Pavelski for two seasons.

The fact that he's a UFA after this season just means we would have to get a better pick or prospect back.

Clowe is exactly the type of playoff player this team has been lacking. He was way more value to us then Pavelski.

Um did you not read my post? I was actually supporting that it wasn't all Loungo's fault and that Edler shared equal blame. I was telling all the people who put the blame on Loungo that it wasn't entirely his fault. I also stated it was an incredible shot. But Loungo was not square to the shot and with 3 seconds left in the period, that's goal you need to save. He was off tilt and had his shoulder slumped. But as I stated that shot should not have been there in the first place. Please read the actual post before just coming up with random attempts at insults and respond a little bit more maturely instead of throwing around insults about video games. Just because someone disagrees with your assessment does not mean they don't know anything about hockey.
