According to TSN, Philly has interest in acquiring Luongo.

They probably want to replace Bryz. The entire universe knows he's terrible.

The positive thing about Burkie getting fired in TO is that the uncertainty about Nonis wanting Lu brings more buyers into the picture.

Makes me wonder what they would do with Bryz. He'd be an expensive buyout, and we're certainly not taking him in return for Luongo.

it's going to be a 3 way trade but what exactly?

Interesting Flyers in Luongo rumors now. Reliable source told me prior to Burke firing they would be 3rd team in a 3-way trade for Lou to TO

twitterverse is suggesting Sean Couturier as part of it, which i'd jump on.

If I'm TO, I'd jump all over this. Let's take a look:

Vancouver gives up: Luongo
Vancouver gets: Couturier

Philly gives up: Bryz and Couturier
Philly gets: Luongo

TO gives up: NOTHING
TO gets: Bryz

Now that's a nice deal for TO.

Sure beats anything TO is offering up IMO.

I'm assuming the thinking is TO would give up a smaller piece and take on Bryz's weighty contract/cap space. In that scenario.

Couterier is a stud and he's only 19. Plays 2nd line center till Kes gets back then slots into 3rd line center roll. Next year, barring injury you've got Sedin, Kes, Couterier, Lapierre. Solid.

Sedin Sedin Kassian
Booth Kes Burrows
Higgins Couterier Hansen/Jensen
Volpatti/Pinnizotto Lapierre Grinder

Yeah, no one was talking about this already yesterday in the Luongo discussion thread...

If this team lets go of Sang he will burn this team next year.

I would lose it if we got Couturier. He's one of my favourite players on Philly. Such a stud.

Fingers crossed these rumours are truth.

True, but that thread is getting a little cluttered.

Until a substantial development is made, let's keep all Luongo talk here:
