Which media outlet do you think will, or should be obligated to, report the Luongo trade first? Team 1040? TSN? Bob Mackin? David Pratt? Farhan Lalji?

Is Mike Gillis obligated to scoop Team 1040 first since they have the Canucks radio rights? Or could Mike Gillis scoop TSN and Dreger or Mackenzie first BEFORE first scooping to Team 1040?

Imagine this scenario.

Someone who works at Vancouver Airport, or even just someone who happens to be at Vancouver airport at just the right time, or a Taxi or bus driver at the airport, sees Luongo at the Airport when the rest of the team is NOT at the airport (at the rink or off for the day).

That individual who sees Luongo at Vancouver airport calls LIVE ON AIR to Team 1040 or to Dave Pratt, and reports he / she saw Luongo at the Airport WITHOUT any teammates, live on air, and muses that Luongo is off to another city (trade has been agreed to with another team).

Should that media outlet pursue the story ON AIR at that point or laugh the fan off?

I'm sure media outlets have discussed how to handle this scenario, it could happen.

I'd imagine Team 1040 is seriously pissed Mike Gillis gave Cam Cole that trade rumour instead of going directly to Scott Rintoul first

Guys, let's put our heads together. Nobody goes home until we resolve this pressing query.

Depends also where he gets traded. If it's TO, Dreger and Bobby Mac will be all over this before anyone else.

I don't think we need to worry about who's going to report it first... Need to see if GMMG is true to his word about a potential deal in place. For all we know, we're keeping Lou and this has all been part of some sick millionaires entertainment.

My money is on Mike Gillis and Roberto Luongo breaking the story through social media network.

One thing for sure, if Pratt breaks the story, he will have plagiarized the story from another writer/journalist and put his name to it as if it were his own. Don't let Pratt sit next to you in the exam room.

Yeah i think so Gillis did it with the Edler deal, just to stick it to the media.

Exactly, it's already been reported, he was just way early.

"...true to his word?..."

I guess you didn't see the intermission interview with Cam Cole. He clarified that it was taken a bit out of context while he paraphrased Gillis on some of the challenges of trading. In other words, before he "quoted" Mike, he should have used the words "for example" so that it read "For example, we have a deal in place but it is dependant upon the other team doing something with one of their players. This is why it's not so simple in putting a deal together." If he had worded it like that, Team 1040 would have had nothing to beat into submission all day Tuesday and Wednesday. Cam also noted that, if it was an honest to goodness true statement, he would have lead the story off with that gem instead of it being buried in paragraph 27.

It's no wonder this whole situation is out of control. Social media on steroids and the general inability for the masses to comprehend things at face value.

There is no deal in place. It doesn't mean there won't be one, it just means you have to stop wishing it would get here like Christmas morning.

There was a lot of talk going on on various media outlets. Didn't see the GMan last night on TV but had some comments as well:

CNN and CNBC will make the announcment first and Fox will say something completely different came out of Florida. After months of negotiations and several recounts, Luongo will start for us in the playoffs and Schnieder will be traded.

You forgot the absentee ballots, and Schneider being the chair of the committee to determine that he loses the starting job to Luongo

In unrelated news, we're on to version 5 of the Luongo trade discussion thread.

Welcome to the boards, OP, but make sure you have a look around and see all the great things already in full swing on the different sub-forums.

Which media outlet do you think will, or should be obligated to, report the Luongo trade first? Team 1040? TSN? Bob Mackin? David Pratt? Farhan Lalji?

Is Mike Gillis obligated to scoop Team 1040 first since they have the Canucks radio rights? Or could Mike Gillis scoop TSN and Dreger or Mackenzie first BEFORE first scooping to Team 1040?

Imagine this scenario.

Someone who works at Vancouver Airport, or even just someone who happens to be at Vancouver airport at just the right time, or a Taxi or bus driver at the airport, sees Luongo at the Airport when the rest of the team is NOT at the airport (at the rink or off for the day).

That individual who sees Luongo at Vancouver airport calls LIVE ON AIR to Team 1040 or to Dave Pratt, and reports he / she saw Luongo at the Airport WITHOUT any teammates, live on air, and muses that Luongo is off to another city (trade has been agreed to with another team).

Should that media outlet pursue the story ON AIR at that point or laugh the fan off?

I'm sure media outlets have discussed how to handle this scenario, it could happen.

I'd imagine Team 1040 is seriously pissed Mike Gillis gave Cam Cole that trade rumour instead of going directly to Scott Rintoul first

As mentioned on the sportsnet interview during the game, the trade rumour Cam Cole was talking about, was fleshed out by the media out of context. Gillis was explaining what has happened with some of the offers before with Cam Cole, and the media put their usual spin on it, and assumed that Gillis was pointing to a current offer that was close to being completed.

Ideally the news should come out to the media outlets who they trust the most, and who are the biggest for hockey (ie. tsn) at roughly the same time. Unless they wanna boost one guy's career and pass it to them first with a one hour head start :P
