Burke would get fried for giving up two firsts after the Kessel deal (Seguin/Hamilton were the firsts). Argument back then was they wouldn't be low picks w Kessel...same argument here...so....

Video killed the radio (print article) star. Same content as what I'd posted just a bit before in the 'Leafs obviously part of the equation' article.

Indeed, and not that he "requested a trade". Now that was my point all along.

Good for you Elvis. Your post was not spam. I was referring to all the commentary and 'LP's spamming up the news thread.

I like print. I'll go give you a + as well.

Doesn't change the fact that he's being moved....read between the lines...a starting goalie being pulled in the playoffs and replaced in the series deciding games, media all over the world talking about where he's going, him not denying he's going anywhere, his replacement being signed to a long contract, his suggestion he's open to a trade (ie in most normal people's minds that means trade me)....

Ive said it before and ive said it again. We wait for a great deal or we stick with 2. Not sure why Cory is the proclaimed starter. Lu did nothing to lose the job and I'd imagine if we have them both we alternate them on a night by night basis. If the rumours regarding what Fla and Tor think Luongo is worth are true then why on earth even think about trading Lu? MG locked up Cory for 3 years and even tho 9.3 is a lot to have tied up in goalies Id rather see Edler walk for nothing in free agency than get nothing for a future HOF goalie.

Sooner or later once the season starts a team currently skeptically satisfied with their tending like TBL, CBJ, EDM, CHI, WASH (TOR and FLA included) will have reason to want to give up something for Luongo or Schneider. Whether its major injury or poor performance from their starter remains to be seen. So long as the price is fair I dont see why something cant get done. But like I also said before TB went with Lindback, teams are much more eager to gamble on an option that costs a lot less. Hopefully some of these gambles dont pay off and we get what we deserve for either guy respectively.

I dont know about you guys but these rumours about Bozak being the framework for an imminent leafs deal make me sick to my stomach. Ive never been Lus biggest fan but I see little point in running him out of town if we cant get what we need. If the supply demand isnt there right now (which it doesnt seem to be) we should wait it out til at least Corys new contract starts coming to a close. I dont see Lu or Cory sucking in the next 3 years especially if they rotate games and jt may even help them stay fresh and make us harder to play against from a scouting POV.

my latest prediction

Luongo goes to florida for grimaldi straight up.

King of ES was right the entire time on the little return

he also gets the one guy he wants.

I know this is an unpopular opinion but if I'm the GM of the Leafs or the Panthers why wouldn't I just wait until the offseason and put the pressure on Gillis to buy Luongo out? Especially Tallon who has never seemed overly eager to make a play for Luongo anyway. It's fairly clear Luongo wants to go there. Wait it out for 48 games and then try to snake him for nothing at a very favourable home town discount. If Gillis has to go all season with Luongo and then needs to think about re-signing Edler in the summer and the Sedins the following year that cap space is going to become invaluable. I'd play chicken with Gillis.

And I'd also want to see Luongo play for a bit before a move was made. He's not usually a great starter and his last season after a lockout was his worst so I think that's a factor as well.

It seems almost charitable to me for a team like the Leafs or Panthers to give up so much when there are so many question marks. And of course the cap doesn't help in anyway. The pressure is going to mount on Gillis if a move isn't made quickly.

Here's one for King - aren't you the guy who posted Craig'slist? ::D

Craig Button:

"I would not trade Luongo if I was Vancouver. High demands on goalies in shortened season. Big advantage for Canucks."

Apparently Button doesn't agree with your "table scraps" assessment.

If they want to offer Seabrook, I'd listen, otherwise it's their marquis players (which no one thinks they'd do), or a bunch of misfits (not much of interest at RW or center)....Stallberg (UFA) and a whack of picks...?

Because Luongo WILL NEVER BE BOUGHT OUT. Why can't ppl understand this. Luongo will need to be paid out approx $30 million dollars if bought out. There is ZERO chance Luongo gets bought out.

If there is absolutely ZERO takers for Luongo MG will not buy Luongo out. MG will waive Luongo as Lu does not have a NMC in his contract, he only has a NTC. Then CBJ would have first dibs at Luongo and EDM will have second. It's a guarantee that one of those 2 teams would claim Luongo of waivers.

Leafs or Panthers would not get Luongo unless they trade for him.

We have a winner, folks!

This is what I've been saying for-ever, and why we should not be expecting any sort of amazing return out of this. Pipe-dreams set forth by Smashian Kassian, Gollumpus, etc., need to be put to rest.
