      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

The bolded part is where your little story falls to pieces. You clearly haven't glimmered a clue about the reality of scarcity at the position of NHL starting goaltending despite hundreds and hundreds of pages of Luongo threads.

I (and you) are not talking about regular season. Talking about the playoffs series where the Canucks were decimated setting a record for fewest goals scored and the Flyers were setting scoring records for a series.

So No not even close.

Next...

Is that right King. What do you see when you look at Weiss' cap hit for next season (the one where the cap drops to 64 million)? Do you see the 60 point center signing for 3.1?

You'll need your healthy imagination.

Very wealthy people are often the cheapest people on the planet - part of why they're very wealthy to begin with.

Think about it - what compelling reason would Ed Snider have to buy out Bryzgalov? When you compound the direct financial loss of the buyout with the fact that other assets would need to be parted with to land Luongo in the form of players, it's a terrible deal for Philadelphia. Is there a guarantee that Luongo would have any more success? Of course not. Look at their numbers - nearly identical, and Luongo's both older and more expensive (total contract value).

"Hundreds and hundreds of pages of Luongo threads"...on Canucks.com. Go to the Leafs' site and take a gander at what they're suggesting. I'll give you a hint: it's a lot less than something along the likes of Sean Couturier, Braydon Coburn, and Wayne Simmonds, which was your brilliant and unbiased proposal.

Here's a question: Toronto offered Luke Schenn in the summer. There are now proposals all over this site suggesting "Kadri, Gardiner, and a 2nd, or bust", which is clearly a better haul than Luke Schenn by himself. What exactly has caused Luongo's value to grow so much since the off-season, that would give any sort of credibility to an offer like that? Is it because he's funny on Twitter? Honestly - what is it?

The scarcity that you refer to is false. Where is the scarcity? As has been demonstrated in the past, there are 5 - 7 teams in the NHL who might have a realistic interest in a guy like Luongo - teams who aren't already heavily invested in other goalies. That list includes a couple of destinations that Luongo almost surely wouldn't agree to be traded to. That's scarcity?

IF the Canucks don't have a deal done for Luongo over the next couple of days...

MG should hold a news conference and announce to the media that....

1. NO CANUCKS PLAYERS including Lu would talk about a possible trade or the goalie situation

2. If a media member asks a question re Luongo trade the player asked the question will not answer it

3. Only updates provided will be by Mgmt.

Luongo should also tell reprorters that he will no longer talk about possible trade scenarios etc...

This will stop much of the "controversy" and "DISTRACTIONS". This way the players can concentrated on a short season which affords little time for distractions.

Shea Weber offer sheet says you don't know what your talking about. I swear your logic is purposely "off" just to get people going.

I have to agree with king on bryz. Trying to get arguably the best defenseman in the league is a little different than cutting a guy 30 million because you think you made a colossal mistake 1 year into his 9yr contract... I'm sure they would rather have luongo but at the price of 30 million and the assets to trade for him, no way.

Not a chance they buy him out.

Why exclude only one piece of my proposal when you can exclude two pieces?

Which player, Couturier, Simmonds or Coburn has greater value than Luongo? None of them. Luongo is worth more than any of them.

I think Elvis could be on to something. Bryz gets shipped to long Island for Dipietro and a quality young player.

Philly cuts their buyout payment significantly, and gets a player to compensate - one of the Isles centers - they have Tavares, Bailey, Neilsen, Strome, Nelson... perhaps a strong, talented two way guy like Nelson to lessen the pain of moving Couturier. Philly then still looks pretty damn good and deep up the middle.

Long Island gets an upgrade over Dipietro, a serviceable NHL goaltender who isn't going to require that they add yet another starter on top of Dipietro's salary. Not ideal, but better than what they are rolling with.

Wrong again. For the past couple of days I've been saying that Florida is the most likely destination, IMO.

If something like this happens, sure, start the Lu to Philly rumors. Until then, though, there's probably absolutely nothing to it.

Gonna take a gamble and say Luongo gets traded on Monday. Idk why but Monday just feels like the day he'll be traded.

That's making an investment, not writing off one.

See the difference?
