      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 6.0

Recommended Posts

Yeah well in return for Lou's contract we get 7 or 10 years of play out of Lou; an all star goalie. In return for taking on Dipietro's contract we get diddly!

Sampy suggested people do things like this and noted that Gretzky was Bought!

Well reality check!

Dipietro is not Gretzky!

And neither is Tavares; we are not paying $40 mill plus his proposal of Lou, Ballard, Schroeder and a first for Tavares. Players only, sure! But Islanders walk away even though its a big offer.

To be fair Luongo would be going the other way in the posters original proposal so getting rid of Luongo's contract and then buying out Dipietro would almost be a mute point.

Also any return that strenghtens the team also increases the chances of a deep playoff run, which in turn would further cancel out the Dipietro buyout with the financial gain of every home playoff game.

With that said though, the chance of the Islanders moving Tavares is probably close to zero.

Nah, with King gone this has slowed down considerably. I'd expect even if the trade comes in the summer, we might still be in 6.0 unless the rumour pot gets stirred heavily at some point.

Looks like Fla called up Jacob Markstrom - says they need to cut goals against down: http://miamiherald.typepad.com/flapanthers/2013/02/hello-jacob-markstrom-promotion-of-goalie-prospect-starts-florida-panthers-goalie-controversy.html?utm_medium=twitter&utm_source=twitterfeed

Curious if this doesn't work out, is the next step Luongo?

I think when Luongo gets traded then Schneider will settle down and play great most of the time. It cant be easy for him to know that if he's not stellar between the pipes then he'll be replaced for the next game and possibly beyond.

It's a lot easier to type the words 'buyout Dipietro's 40m' on an internet forum than it is to, y'know, actually willingly throw 40 Million dollars at someone else's mistake. Just sayin'.

The Islanders would have to buy Dipietro out themselves, if we could get Tavares with Luo and others I would JUMP all over it but not if it meant we take Dipietro that makes no sense at all!!!!

i'm gonna say we'll get to #12 before Luo actually gets traded.

FLA is more likely to have a fire sale and get rid of some of the older guys. It is not their time yet, maybe in a couple of years. Its time to gear up for the future.

IMO they will unlikely give up any of their top prospects for Luongo.

Dipietro's buyout is actually closer to 23 million, not that that's small change, but if Snow was hoping to shed that contract I think he'd have to give a lot more plum of a deal than simplyTavares while receiving Schneider, Schroeder, Ballard and a pick in return. He'd be out of his mind if he didn't jump at that deal and I see simply no way in the world that Vancouver parts with Schneider in that scenario, let alone a blockbuster package (including a first) - I wouldn't cut that deal for Tavares, let alone take Dipietro in addition.

It's possible that someone effectively takes Dipietro in exchange for some additional serious young talent from the Isles, but it's difficult to put a player value on a 23 million buyout. Imo Tavares and Dipietro for Luongo is probably not enough to make Aquillini write a cheque like that...the Isles are between a rock and a hard place where Dipietro is concerned - they are going to have to pay big regardless of the form it takes. I think they'd actually have to add more value to make it happen, but that's just my assessment.
