Luongo, Schroeder, Ballard.

Couturier, Simmonds, Coburn.


Completely unrealistic

Only way you get Couturier, Simmonds, and Coburn out of Philly is if we trade Raymond, Ballard, and a 1st.............

Im in the same boat as Noheart, I agree with alot of things you say but you just mis-judge value sometimes, I've done it before to so I'm taking a huge shot at you but I'm not apposed to everything you say.


I would have thought the same thing - Schenn, Simmonds and a second for Richards - no way. I'd never do that. Carter for Vorachek, the 8th overall (Couturier) and a 3rd round pick. No GD way. What's that - Kaberle (a rental) for Colborne, a 1st and a conditional 2nd - you're out of your mind...

It would seem that proven veterans have significant value - even when they are pending UFAs, or have lifetime contracts like Richards or Carter....
In my mind, Luongo has as much value to a team as any of these guys - easily.
Flame away. I don't think my proposals are that far off. I'd be willing to move, be countered, but really, I think you and King are underestimating the market.

And I've seen a whole lot of serious overpayments in the other direction in the past 20 pages...

Philly's biggest need is defence what we should really be looking at is what would Gardiner get us from Philly not what Luongo would get us.

Maybe Matt Read can he play centre? Briere would be nice but he still has alot of money owed to him.

At least that is my opinion

Bozak, Kadri and 2nd seems to be the lowest possible return at this point. Safe to think that MG could do a little better.

Having seen Kadri live, count me among those who think he would not survive under AV for more than a few trial games. The guy is essentially Raymond (falls down at about the same frequency) with more edge and willingness to go into traffic, but less defensive awareness and no elite speed.

Since early Noonis comments hint that for him Gardiner/Riley will also be “the hill that [Burke already] died on,” perhaps changing the above to something like Bozak, Frattin or Finn, and 1st would get it done.

Not a great return, I know, but I want that 1st if only rentals and no meaningful, semi-established pieces in the mold of Gardiner or Voracek come our way.

I'd do this in a second!!!


And that would be a significant overpayment.


You'd also do this...

If TOR is trying to get Luongo on the cheap- that is hilarious they turn to Buffalo- Buffalo would ask for grdiner and Kessel for Miller, he is truly their franchise player- not to mention emotional leader. Nonis is useless anyway.
I like Ian Esplen's proposal today of
Luongo, Raymond for Conolly, Reilly and a 2nd


That is on the cheap. Really cheap.

And Ian Esplen is another name for Eklund... which about says it all.

Folks have simply gotten used to the insulting concept that Luongo isn't a legitimate starter - easily in the top 20 among NHL goaltenders. What is a top 20 forward worth? A top 20 blueliner?

A lot of people here that I sure as hell wouldn't want doing my bidding...

That is my point we are not getting Couturier or B. Schenn

Vorachek makes sense.

Toronto needs a goalie

Philly needs a defenceman

Vancouver needs a centre

It is like a jigsaw puzzle the right pieces need to go where they fit

In my eyes drouin is overrated he can score in the qmjhl but did nothing in last two gold medal games that canada lost. Fox will be better pro than him talk to me in five yrs

Gaudreau has one NHL goal whereas all your "prized" prospects have none.

I like the idea of this trade.

Lu+raymond for Gardiner+1st+3rd

Gardiner+Edler for Both Schenns, Leighton, 3rd

Edler= L Schenn+Leighton+3rd
Lu= B Schenn+1st
Raymond= 3rd

Get our backups
Get our RHD
Get our 2/3 center
get 3 picks we can use to play around at trade deadline.

Canucks need a true offensive dman in the system as well as another centre.

For
Gardiner, Biggs, Reimer and Connolly (Bozak if they would rather)

Then

Reimer, Gaunce, Sauve, Ballard, 2nd

To PHI
Luongo
Raymond
Kassian

To VAN
Bryz
Couturier
Simmonds
2nd

Waive Bryz or trade him to TO for a 2nd.

In my mind, Luongo has as much value to a team as any of these guys - easily.
Flame away. I don't think my proposals are that far off. I'd be willing to move, be countered, but really, I think you and King are underestimating the market.

And I've seen a whole lot of serious overpayments in the other direction in the past 20 pages...


I was trying to show you some respect since before me "critiquing" (to say the least) your NYI proposal we seemed to agree alot.

Anyways the Kaberle situation is alot more comparable to the Richards/Carter trades, Kaberle was percieved to be a very good defensemen who Boston desperately needed (Needed to improve there Powerplay) and Colbourne + 1st + Condiditional 2nd isn't as bad as it looks as first glance, I don't condone the deal cause I thought it was brilliant by Burke aswell, but it is becoming evident as it seems to be clear to me now that Colbourne's upside isn't as high as originally thought (I say 3rd liner myself) then the 1st is 30th and the 2nd was on them winning the cup I believe? So they got that pick which was 60th, and if they hadn't had won it would have been just Joe and the 1st.

The Carter/Richards deals are a bit different though.

Richards his deal does back dive but his expires when he is 33, it doesn't still have 10 more years when he is 33 so the CBA won't affect him negatively like it will with Lu, also he was a captain of the team, a young 1st line center in his prime with many great season ahead and brought a solid two way game aswell as leadership. Regardless of if you agree with it or not he wasn't quite as inconsistent as Lu can be at times, and that's coming from a Lu fan and LA hater. Then the return, Schenn was a young player with high upside who wasn't able to crack the roster (similar to where Kadri is now you could say) Simmonds is a obviously a young player who has good upside, and a solid all round game.

Carter has a similar contract, it ends at 36 so not quite as long but still a long deal, he is a scoring 1st line center, Columbus wanted to do the band aid work, and paid a decent price to do it, either way Carter was in the prime of his career with many great years ahead. The return, they got Voracek who hadn't exactly set the world on fire and hasn't yet in Philly either, he is young and has alot of tools & high upside no doubt (Im a big Voracek fan myself), but still hasn't scored 20 goal or 50 Points, maybe in the spot Grabner was for us, with a rounded game. Then the 8th overall pick which no one thought would be Couturier, I thought it would be Ryan Murphy myself that's who I had going 8th.

Both players were Philly's undoubtably there Franchise players (not that Lu isn't here but:) if they didn't get top return they had no one ready to replace them, no one thought Giroux would explode like he did, and niether was really put out there like Lu is. Luongo on the other hand has a contract that is much worse, and is much more worry-some to take on in terms of the CBA, Lu is also much older than both, we have a replacement in Schneider, Luongo wants out, and we have to move him, so teams have the upperhand in some areas.

I still think we will get a pretty decent return, I don't think it will be scraps like King seems to, I just can't see a way we get full value when Luongo needs to go at some point, and with all the other circumstances surrounding it.

From all the time I have spent on HF Boards talking to other fans and watching TV, looking on the CPU, exc. I don't see anyway we will get Gardiner, I was hopeful that maybe there was an outside shot after the Burke firing but Nonis's comments today on HC at noon sank those thoughts of optimitism for me, I still think Kadri, Frattin, other prospects, perhaps the 1st are in play aswell as some other roster players, but from Toronto I don't see Gardiner, Rielly, Kessel, Phaneuf, JVR, Grabovski, exc in play at all. It's not that they aren't more valuable than Lu it is that there are just some players that take a major overpayment to get due to needs, fit in your roster exc.

And I guarentee that NYI deal has no possibility of being done, after seeing and Islanders fan (Who really wanted Keith Ballard) say the most he would give up is Aaron Ness and a 3rd, and seeing them praise Brock Nelson, and knowing what I do about Okposo, Hamonic, then seeing how deadly it can be trading top 15 picks when your team isn't ready to make a move like that as we saw with Toronto and Kessel, there is just no way it gets done.

It's not that I undervalue Luongo, I can just see (and it is clear as day) that we won't get full value in return, with MG though I am optimistic we will still get a good enough offer that we can be satisfied.

Holmgren is a guy who just moved two players in exchange for the entire farm.

Richards - 12 years, 69 million.
Carter - 11 years, 58 million.

A pair of guys whose character were being questioned, who were perceived to need a change of scenery.

Philly's return - Schenn, Simmonds, Vorachek, Couturier, 2nd, 3rd...

Holmgren then watched those two guys compose 2/3 of the 2nd line of a Stanley Cup winning team.

He on the other hand still has the farm.

He's also watched Bryzgalov melt down to degrees and consistency that Canucks fans can't even fathom.

When folks here say we'll never get Couturier, we'll never get Gardiner, we'll never get Reilly, we'll won't get Vorachek, we won't get Schenn, etc etc, essentially you are saying we can't get less than half the value of a Richards or a Carter - a pair of second line players - for (conservatively) a top 15/20 goaltender like Luongo.

I think you may want to rethink that, particularly after the landscape has changed the way it has with the new CBA.

Not necessarily.

the top 20 defensemen are alot deeper than the top 20 goaltenders, you could be looking at the 20th in goaltenders being maybe.. Craig Anderson for example, or Corey Crawford, then on the defense side it could be someone like.. Phaneuf, or Brent Burns, or something along those lines, Maybe Kevin Shattenkirk. so is the 20th goalie worth the 20th defensemen? Likely not, then just count it down, the margin of value stays the same until you get to maybe the top 5, depending on who your top 5 is. then around Luongo you have a # of circumstance to consider that impact his value.

I know this won't happen but I'd like to see a three team deal Calgary,Toronto,Vancouver

to Van: Franson , Iginla and a 1st & 3rd or 4th from CF
to CF: Ballard , Kadri , young player from leafs and two 1st from TML
to TML: Raymond,Luo,CF throw in

Let CF get the first 1st rounder,we get second first rounder and CF get the third 1st rounder!!!

This would work for all teams and make them better,only thing CF wont part with iginla even if it makes them better which this trade would!!!

Well that's frankly too much to respond to, but I will say this - your numbers are wrong - Carter will be 37 when his contract expires in 2022, Richards will be 35 in 2020 - and you're talking about skaters - their typical shelf life is easily shorter than goaltenders - and in the case of a guy like Richards who isn't the biggest guy, and plays a bigger game than his frame... In addition, their lifestyles are fairly storied... not exactly tailored for longevity.

And I don't particularly care what random posters on HF boards or Leafs.central think...I think for myself.

I like the hell out of you oldnews but you overvalue the living crap out of our players.

your the guy on kijiji that wants $21,000 for a 96 poniac sunfire with a ground effects kit, spoiler, and ed hardy seat covers

just because its awesome to you doesnt make it awesome bro

if that trade went through and I was a Flyers fan I would sit in a dark room and cut myself


Maybe holmgren likes supped up 96 Pontiac sunfires.. Yes an over payment but shooting high isn't always bad

Your point only makes Luongo's relative value higher. The fact that the lines between a top 20 and top 40 blueliner are blurry, whereas there aren't exactly 40 guys vying for the top 20 in goaltending only serves to undermine your concept of value - top 20 goaltenders are more rare than the deeper blueline pool. Advantage teams with actual top 20 goaltenders.

Philly's return - Schenn, Simmonds, Vorachek, Couturier, 2nd, 3rd...

Holmgren then watched those two guys compose 2/3 of the 2nd line of a Stanley Cup winning team.

He on the other hand still has the farm.

He's also watched Bryzgalov melt down to degrees and consistency that Canucks fans can't even fathom.

When folks here say we'll never get Couturier, we'll never get Gardiner, we'll never get Reilly, we'll won't get Vorachek, we won't get Schenn, etc etc, essentially you are saying we can't get less than half the value of a Richards or a Carter - a pair of second line players - for (conservatively) a top 15/20 goaltender like Luongo.

I think you may want to rethink that, particularly after the landscape has changed the way it has with the new CBA.


I don't know if this is pointed at me but I assume it is.

Your crazy if you think Carter and Richards are 2nd line players, Carter has struggled and had a few bad years and still put up 30+ goals and 60+ points, Richards on the other hand is a top line 2 way forward, I don't think there is much debating that around the league.

Both are younger, both with better contracts (Richards alot better, Carter's only a little better) and don't have the handcuffing circumstances surrounding them like Luongo was, it wasn't all over the News for half a year that they wanted out & that Philly had to move them and that there was a limited market like there is with Lu.

They both had higher value than Lu does now, I don't see how it is all that debatable honestly.

Well that's frankly too much to respond to, but I will say this - your numbers are wrong - Carter will be 37 when his contract expires in 2022, Richards will be 35 in 2020 - and you're talking about skaters - their typical shelf life is easily shorter than goaltenders - and in the case of a guy like Richards who isn't the biggest guy, and plays a bigger game than his frame... In addition, their lifestyles are fairly storied... not exactly tailored for longevity.

And I don't particularly care what random posters on HF boards or Leafs.central think...I think for myself.


I guess you missed a huge part of my post but that is okay, so I am off by 1-2 years, still not as bad as Lu's that take him to 42

And I guess you don't care what other fans think about there teams trade value, but I will ask you this, who do you trust more to make an accurate determination of Luongo's value? Canucks fans (Non-Luongo haters) or fans around the league in other markets? Probably Canuck fans.

That's the way NYI and TOR fans would feel too, I think they have a much better grasp on what there players are worth than us.

Holmgren is a guy who just moved two players in exchange for the entire farm.

Richards - 12 years, 69 million.
Carter - 11 years, 58 million.

A pair of guys whose character were being questioned, who were perceived to need a change of scenery.

Philly's return - Schenn, Simmonds, Vorachek, Couturier, 2nd, 3rd...

Holmgren then watched those two guys compose 2/3 of the 2nd line of a Stanley Cup winning team.

He on the other hand still has the farm.

Things change Bud

You know CLB was trying to use the PHL - LAK trade as a benchmark but it just wasn't happening.

Young players are just worth too dam much

Again.... the RICK NASH Trade

CLB
F Artem Anisimov
F Brandon Dubinsky
D Tim Erixon
1st

NY
F RICK NASH
D Steve Delisle
Conditional 3rd

Does anything CLB got even come close to one of either Simmons, Couturier, Gardiner, Reilly, Vorachek or B Schenn?

this is what Nonis thinks

@Michael_Traikos: #Leafs Nonis to Hockey Central on trading Gardiner or Rielly: "We would only move a young playuer for another young player." #Luongo

If you want Simmons, Couturier, Gardiner, Reilly, Vorachek or B Schenn get ready to throw in Jenson or Frankie C

I was trying to show you some respect since before me "critiquing" (to say the least) your NYI proposal we seemed to agree alot.

Anyways the Kaberle situation is alot more comparable to the Richards/Carter trades, Kaberle was percieved to be a very good defensemen who Boston desperately needed (Needed to improve there Powerplay) and Colbourne + 1st + Condiditional 2nd isn't as bad as it looks as first glance, I don't condone the deal cause I thought it was brilliant by Burke aswell, but it is becoming evident as it seems to be clear to me now that Colbourne's upside isn't as high as originally thought (I say 3rd liner myself) then the 1st is 30th and the 2nd was on them winning the cup I believe? So they got that pick which was 60th, and if they hadn't had won it would have been just Joe and the 1st.

The Carter/Richards deals are a bit different though.

Richards his deal does back dive but his expires when he is 33, it doesn't still have 10 more years when he is 33 so the CBA won't affect him negatively like it will with Lu, also he was a captain of the team, a young 1st line center in his prime with many great season ahead and brought a solid two way game aswell as leadership. Regardless of if you agree with it or not he wasn't quite as inconsistent as Lu can be at times, and that's coming from a Lu fan and LA hater. Then the return, Schenn was a young player with high upside who wasn't able to crack the roster (similar to where Kadri is now you could say) Simmonds is a obviously a young player who has good upside, and a solid all round game.

Carter has a similar contract, it ends at 36 so not quite as long but still a long deal, he is a scoring 1st line center, Columbus wanted to do the band aid work, and paid a decent price to do it, either way Carter was in the prime of his career with many great years ahead. The return, they got Voracek who hadn't exactly set the world on fire and hasn't yet in Philly either, he is young and has alot of tools & high upside no doubt (Im a big Voracek fan myself), but still hasn't scored 20 goal or 50 Points, maybe in the spot Grabner was for us, with a rounded game. Then the 8th overall pick which no one thought would be Couturier, I thought it would be Ryan Murphy myself that's who I had going 8th.

Both players were Philly's undoubtably there Franchise players (not that Lu isn't here but:) if they didn't get top return they had no one ready to replace them, no one thought Giroux would explode like he did, and niether was really put out there like Lu is. Luongo on the other hand has a contract that is much worse, and is much more worry-some to take on in terms of the CBA, Lu is also much older than both, we have a replacement in Schneider, Luongo wants out, and we have to move him, so teams have the upperhand in some areas.

I still think we will get a pretty decent return, I don't think it will be scraps like King seems to, I just can't see a way we get full value when Luongo needs to go at some point, and with all the other circumstances surrounding it.

From all the time I have spent on HF Boards talking to other fans and watching TV, looking on the CPU, exc. I don't see anyway we will get Gardiner, I was hopeful that maybe there was an outside shot after the Burke firing but Nonis's comments today on HC at noon sank those thoughts of optimitism for me, I still think Kadri, Frattin, other prospects, perhaps the 1st are in play aswell as some other roster players, but from Toronto I don't see Gardiner, Rielly, Kessel, Phaneuf, JVR, Grabovski, exc in play at all. It's not that they aren't more valuable than Lu it is that there are just some players that take a major overpayment to get due to needs, fit in your roster exc.

And I guarentee that NYI deal has no possibility of being done, after seeing and Islanders fan (Who really wanted Keith Ballard) say the most he would give up is Aaron Ness and a 3rd, and seeing them praise Brock Nelson, and knowing what I do about Okposo, Hamonic, then seeing how deadly it can be trading top 15 picks when your team isn't ready to make a move like that as we saw with Toronto and Kessel, there is just no way it gets done.

It's not that I undervalue Luongo, I can just see (and it is clear as day) that we won't get full value in return, with MG though I am optimistic we will still get a good enough offer that we can be satisfied.


I agree with you sir. Prolific post!

The King's top line is Williams, Kopitar, Brown.
Carter and Richards are their second line.

Care to compare: people here are crazy if they think Luongo is a "backup"...

I've already adressed their contracts - I think you are quite mistaken.
