Heard this earlier today. Assuming that is infact true, what about a deal centered around Kessel for Luongo? Kadri and Bozek are playing well, so they won't be coming back in return. Kessel is coming off a good season.

Hopefully Gillis will ignore the opportunity to trade for Kessel. I don't like his style of play, I don't like his cap hit, and I'm not that crazy about him. Not sure why, but I would prefer he not get the chance to be a Canuck.

Good looking lineup, as much as people don't like him he brings a lot of speed and we lack a sniper......

Not sure why everyone is hatin' on Kessel. He's 25 yrs old, has 4 consecutive 30+ goal seasons under his belt and his cap hit is 5.4M. His contract runs out in 2 more seasons, not including this one.

I think this would be a decent return for Lu.

I know, we won't get anything better for Lu and we get someone who is super fast and can actually put the puck in the net consistently.... something that we have lacked in the playoffs.

Yes!!!! Thank You! What is up with all these wanna-be mods on this site? It gets old hearing about how something shoulda been posted somewhere else on pretty much every thread.

If Canucks.com doesn't like all the duplicate threads they should make their Forum a bit more user friendly. As it is the search function is a hassle and posts older than a couple of days don't get read anymore. If you want to do something useful harass CDC to revamp the site rather than harass the end users for duplicate posting.

too small no thanks


He's 200lbs, that's not exactly small.

Perimeter player. Nah


4 seasons with 30+goals says he can score either way. He'd certainly be an upgrade for Kesler's wingers.

Seriously? After all the middling deals that have been rumored, you wouldn't take Kessel in comparison?

That is definitely the best thing I have heard as possibly coming back for Luongo.

Let Canucks management know you want King Richard Brodeur in the Ring of Honour with no further delay! He's been retired for 25 years!

I wouldn't mind him if we could fit his salary under the cap. People seem to be forgetting that we lack a pure offensive minded sniper on this team... I would welcome him

Agreed, the search function is a pain in the ass and I like reading new topics, I get bored of the same ones with the same 5 posters arguing with eachother... how is that fun for everyone else to read?

You guys are all high. Luongo will net nothing of major value. To us, Luongo will always be one of the greatest Canucks of all time simply because our history is that of a goalie graveyard. To other teams, a 10 year contract for a tender who was kicked out of the starting job because of the fans and the media isn't exactly attractive. If we get anything close to what Kadri is worth I will be ecstatic.

Sig too big.

That's what I think - almost the same cap but we get a decent forward...and only 2 years...

McCoy: We were speculating. Is God really out there?
Kirk: Maybe he's not out there, Bones. Maybe he's right here. [points to his heart]
