      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 5.0

Recommended Posts

<p>

Also something to remember: Mike Smith has had ONE good year. Many goalies have had one good year. This year, his stats are not even remotely NHL level, with 3.43 gaa and .863 save %. In short, I don't think Mike Smith is a good available goalie to be using as an alternative to Luongo, who has consistently put up some of the best numbers in the NHL for years.

And Sampy: You can't buy a player out then re-sign him for a year.

My sources are telling me (Q3):

To NYI- Luongo, Kesler

To VAN- Tavares, DiPietro

Getting Luongo would be the exact opposite of blowing it up, and trading one prospect of the 3 or 4 great ones they have wouldn't be a huge loss.

I love Schroeder's game.......I think he's here for good. He's able to add an offensive threat to the third line without sacrificing the defensive aspect to a bottom 6 C role. Does Booth now become expendable? Does Higgy? Does Lappy? Does Raymond? IMO, these guys are all guys Washington wouldn't mind having for depth. Can Vancouver survive giving up a good forward without getting one back?

they wont take 1 roster player from their lineup to get an elite goalie who gives them a chance to go far in thr playoffs?

Wilson is a huge risk, and orlov hasnt proven much. id prefer a 1st round pick over orlov myself

Here's a question: who would you trade Jannik Hansen, Brendan Gaunce, and Chris Tanev for? That's basically what you're asking Washington to give up (and flattering to Tanev, realistically).

Before CS started last night and almost pitched a shutout, he had stats that looked real similar. "Not even remotely NHL level" is a hell of a stretch when you consider the fact that one decent start in such a small sample size can absolve you over night.

If his numbers stay that way in twice as many games, it obviously changes things.

Not saying "bring Smith to Vancouver", or anything like that, though.

I don't see any immediate help in your proposal other than a necessary Backup for CS. Sending Booth and moving Hanson up has potential. I like that it gives Kass a role on the 3rd. The CAP hit might be to big for the Caps to handle. Higgins might work better but I like his game. Alberts is another piece that some teams might like. Big, stay at home, with some decent hitting and affordable.

Never thought I would say it but I am starting to think MG could keep Lou. Season almost 1/4 over. He might get better value during the summer after contract buyouts and UFAs leave.

Does the Tim Thomas trade not show a loophole in the CBA that teams could take advantage of if they were to acquire luongo.....if luongo had say four of five more years left he could play for whatever team wanted him and then when it gets to the lower end of his contract ie 3mil a year and lower actual pay, he could just tell his team he is taking time off from the game to be with family and said team could then suspend him and trade him to a team who at the time needs to hit cap floor for a low draft pick if he plays ,with both teams knowing he isn't going to play. Kinda makes his contract more digestible
