Luongo

Luo also has an active contract until 2022 that pays him $5.3M per year on a cap-hit basis, and he's already just shy of 34 years old.

You should read a bit about Fasth's background. It's very, very similar to Lundqvist's. Anaheim may have found a real gem.

Tossing in guys like Rodin & Ebbett won't change anything.

I can't see WSH giving two 1st rounders and a roster player. If we were offered Brouwer and a 1st, we should take it and run.

Players of Lu's caliber almost always have a couple of players/prospects go along in a trade. A star player rarely goes alone.

I would bet a roster player will be part of any Lu deal.

nube question here, but Luongo gets paid (not his cap hit) 6.375 per year currently and when he retires, he no longer gets paid. He is too egocentric to continue to play in the minors if someone waves him when he is old and crappy, so what is the main hung up over the contract? He max plays like 5-6 more years and that is an amount of money comparable to other great players.
What is the problem? I know I am missing something, just looking for some help.
Thanks

I still think it would be in our teams best interest to rotate our goalies every game. Keeps them fresh, keeps their trade appeal high assuming they both play great over the course of the year, which im sure they can do. I know its in our best interest to keep winning but I know both our goalies give us that chance every game. Even if they end the season playing approx 50/50 in 3 game spurts i think alternating them game by game is in the best of our club, and the most fair approach.

I just can't take it anymore. King of the ES, you are a complete and total knob. Everything you say is beyond my comprehension for how shortsighted, dull, and incorrect it is. When brought up with facts, you either try to bring up other, irrelevant stats, or completely ignore them. I used to think that you were just a kid trying to rile up some people here, but now I realize that you're nothing short of pathetic neckbeard. Your behaviour and such is cringe-worthy if you're anything short of 13. You make stupid ass decisions and jump on every. Single. Bandwagon that you find with any sort of negativity.

Christ. Some people's children.

Simple explanation by Elliot Friedman:

The simplest way to explain it is this: Let's assume the Canucks and Maple Leafs make the deal. Vancouver would be responsible for the "cap benefit" that it received in the first two years. Toronto would be responsible for any remaining "cap benefit" it gets as a result of contract structure if he walks away early.

neuvirth and Bryz let in the ugliest goals of the night with the runners up Holtby and Theodore not far behind. Some of these guys look more like AHL all stars than NHLers.

Not sure why McPhee seems so committed to these crappy goalies? He doesn't have to g out and get Luongo, but any self respecting GM would go out and do something to upgrade that position.
Bernier is not the answer, he is less experienced than both WSH goalies in terms of playoff experience and less experienced than neuvirth in regular season action.

Way to go McPhee, stand idly by and watch your core of veterans lose a season due to pathetic goaltending

GM spelled backwards is MG much like god and dog. A word is palindromic if it's spelled the same way backwards as forwards. What's the longest palindromic word in the english language?


Fave is racecar,,longest im aware of is re-divider.

WSH owner is worth 1 Billion, which is on the lower end of NHL owners, maybe he is saying no to Luongo's contract and therefor they have made no inquiries about him

what is George McPhee doing? He goalies are letting that team down. 1-2 bad goals against on a team struggling to score.
Also- columbus- ewww that team has no goaltending either..and bryz- don't get me started, Theodore is the worst though-GD awful

I hate to say it but Kolzig and Luongo have pretty similar resumes

Kolzig is highly underrated. carried the caps to the SCF with nothing.

If he was on say, Detroit or Dallas and not competing against Brodeur, Roy, Hasek, Belfour

he may have won more hardware than he did.

Does anyone agree with me on this? We need to either keep our 3rd line as a speedy, creative line, or go all out for two physical pieces, and then bring kassian down to the third. Can't have a bit of each, in my opinion.

you cant buy a player out and then re-sign them. but your lineup is pretty damn amazing, but washington is not giving up brooks laich anytime soon in my opinion.
