I want to get an idea of how much we Canucks fans, consider Lou's value to have risen.

Aware that TO didn't want to trade excess youth, but I believe their recent form may prompt Nonis to make a play. Ideally, we'd like to enhance the current roster, yet also prepare for next yr's cap-plummet. the bonus is addng picks for the future...

So here's an offer:

we receive: Frattin(really like how this kid snipes; next yr also, salary only 1 mill)
-Mark Fraser, big nasty 225 lb 6/7 D-man(paired with Tanev); only 600k salary
-Morgan Reilly
-Ben Scrivens
-2014 2nd rounder

Leafs get: Lou, Ballard & Ebbett

The team drops about 7 mill in Cap(TO can squeeze it in). Adds a sniper, nasty size & great prospect.

Would any of you do this? How would you adjust price?

I think this simultaneousy addresses many needs.

At this point I'm not sure it would be fair to Luongo to trade him to Toronto. We're doing good so we should probably hang onto him until the offseason.

They laugh, really hard.

If they've stated they don't want to give up their prospects, and that their goal is to get bigger, why the fruck would they trade the 6'7 defenceman, and one of the best prospects in the league?

not posting anything canucks related until october

I doubt Lou's value has changed one way or the other, but, will decrease as he ages .

I doubt his value has changed dramatically over the past 2 months either... but advancing age is not a driving issue for when this trade happens. We will certainly be making a trade before the start of the next season (whether it ends up being Schneider or Luongo). With the reduced cap we can't have them both.

No trading partner will care that he is 6 months older. They will care about how he performed this season and how many dollars are remaining on his contract.
