Luongo, Raymond, Schroeder

Bryzgalov, Couturier


This could and should happen.


Raymond and Schroeder for Bryzgalov essentially... why should this happen?

I'm surprised Tampa hasn't been talked about more.. right next to the Panthers and have a tandem of Lindback and Garon.. I know Yzerman paid a fair sum for Lindback, but Luongo would be a giant improvement...

Yea, no thanks. Why would we take on a contract the same as Luongo's?

Let the Flyers buyout Bryzgalov if they wanna get rid of him.

Couturier isn't happening, Hartnell isn't happening.

If Philly is seriously interested the offer they will present that will revolve around Matt Read, watch.

(And Matt Read isn't that interesting IMO)

To Chicago
Miller

To Buffalo
Kane + Luongo

To Vancouver
Ott and Grigorenko

Throw in minor pieces as you like, perhaps Raymond or Schroeder go with Lu and Crawford comes back as backup for Canucks.

No, Buffalo just acquired Ott at the expense of Roy. And so far he's played at least to standards, maybe better. Nevermind Grigorenko..

i honestly think george mcphee's job is on the line in washington. His team has a must-win-now attitude and they have two very young goalies and neuvirth hasnt gotten the job done.

Unless holtby is their guy and they think he is ready they are a sleeper team as far as im concerned.

Yea, maybe Yzerman came to his senses, or he was bluffing to see if Gillis would cave.

I can't see Yzerman wasting away some of Stamkos's best years, not to mention St.Louis who can still bring it, because they didn't have good enough goaltending.

Lindback & Luongo would make a good, reliable tandem. Not unlike Schneider & Luongo last year, but a slight downgrade.

Don't know what player they'd have to 'do something' with, though. Ohlund retiring..? Does have a 3.6 cap hit, but he's already on the IR.

Maybe why Schroeder is being held out of action? Maybe he's involved. :shock:

But really, I don't see a deal going down tomorrow. That move was most likely made in order to make room for Schroeder.

But rumors are still fun. Like how about Luongo to Tampa for Malone and Connolly (d4).


I like your way of thinking. Tampa fits in so many ways.....Luongo gives them instant top level goaltending to go with an outstanding offense and emerging blueline. Garon is UFA at seasons end and Lindback could be good but also could be average at best. Vasilevski is further away than Markstrom in Florida is.

If Tampa can bury Ohlunds contract going forward this would free up the necessary cap space and give the Lightning another shot at a cup before Lecavalier and St.Louis are done.

Why do the first 3 get location and team name then the next 25 get just the team name, then just the location for the Caps, then finally just team name again? Inconsistency bothers me.

...and yet I'm still an Edler fan.

BUF needs a #1 C. They are playing CoHo as top line C right now + they get replacement for Miller. Chicago gets the goalie they desperately need. Canucks get a the type of roster player they need and a high end prospect. Exactly what MG has stated he wants.

Never mind Grigorenko? The kid is a stud. He'll be a star in the NHL. I've like this kid for 2 years now. Made many posts on CDC about him. I would absolutely love Ott and Grigo for Lu.

Washington doesn't really fit the bill of needing to move a player before the deal though, unless they're looking to move OV before taking on Luongo haha.

I can't see Philly pulling it off without involving Bryz moving somewhere...who's going to want him??
Washington... would be an instant upgrade but feel they want to determine if their young keepers can do the job before making such a deal.

Can't see how the Canucks get full value for Luongo, his contract is a killer. Putting on my GM hat, if I am considering an upgrade in net and Luongo is a thought, I am picking up the phone and asking about the availability of Halak or Elliott with STL.

Philly ownership's frustration of Bryz's press comments(with unpredictable play), is a factor that shouldn't be underestimated. If they could kaibosh that, while getting Roberto(all at once)?..That's a team which could badly overpay. Get a good player, prospects and a pick-would be expensive-but Van would be set for a decade.

And based on Gillis's quote:

one team that has to do something with another player that they have


Could be talking about Ohlund. Or maybe even Lecavlier. That contract is going to kill them going forward if they don't get rid of it.

My top 3 unexpected teams are Anaheim, Tampa Bay, and Washington though. We'll see how it goes down.

WSH has completely changed their system under Oates. They want the D to jump into the rush now as opposed to under Hunter when he didn't even want forwards to jump up into the rush...

They need a puck moving Dman. Ballard + Luongo ? Thats a lot of salary going so we'd have to take something back.

I was referring to the part of Gillis' quote where he refers to his trade partner needing to move a player before the deal is possible - and Washington has a pair of extremely inexpensive goaltenders.

Well they would have to trade either Holtby or Neuvirth in order to take on Luongo.

Maybe Toronto's interested?

Nuevirth or Holtby would need to be moved first or their return won't be as good. It would be Nuevirth who goes IMO.

Could be a deal with the Caps. Maybe they have to do something with one of Neuvirth or Holtby before they make move for Luongo. If they waited until afterwards they would not get the same return.

I'd love to see Kuznetsov come back as part of package. He'll be in the KHL for this season and next but when he gets here he's a star. A game breaker that Canucks need.

@Goalscorer - Philly can now buyout Bryz. They still have room with his cap hit. They have the money and aren't scared to make bold moves...

I think the OP got the Rangers wrong....they might be a possible trade target now.
