      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.

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

Alright revised proposal.

Florida gets Luongo at a great price, which includes dumping a terrible contract of there own. Nothing major is leaving them futurewise or currently.

We get rid of the contract & move on and add a piece that helps now aswell as decent future pieces. We take on a bad contract but Upshall could help in the playoffs in a 4th line role then be bought-out in the summer.

Could add a tad more to our side, but this is a great deal for Florida. Lets just move on with this situation.

I still see Washington as a likely destination for either goaltender.

They need something. They need it bad. And, they need it yesterday.

They have pieces to swap, and management NEEDS to do something, because they can't keep firing coaches and expecting it to turn around.

They are in a better position than Florida or Columbus to use a goalie ready to win now, and I bet ownership is not happy with their current place in the standings.

Winnipeg is the other team I could see wanting Schneider. They love him there, and ownership knows him. Pavelec sucks.

I would LOVE to get... not who you think... wait for it... KANE!! jk.. not him. WHEELER!! Damn I love that guy. He's huge, and can play with the best of em.

If Schneider goes, then I think Winnipeg would be in on it.

The trade is fair... it's just that Florida only has 24 games left... no incentive to get better at this time of year. They are just going to tank and take the first overall pick if they are lucky. They might be quite interested in Luongo in the summer but not now. They are in last place, injuries have really hit them too... there season is over.

Total, 100% speculation. Yes. By deduction in fact: Luongo will waive only to go to Florida. Gillis' asking price is too steep for Florida. Florida is a rebuilding, patient team on a limited budget. They're not trading their youth, they want to trade their high salaries, they have no pieces that fit both GM's plans.

Yes. CDC posts count for legitimate interest from Florida.

From the Panthers fan site:

  1. Nikolai Khabibulin: $3.75M, UFA, .935 SV% (3 votes [25.00%] - View)

  2. Jon Bernier: $1.25M, RFA, .916 SV% (4 votes [33.33%] - View)

  3. Roberto Luongo: $5.333M, 2022, .916 SV% (2 votes [16.67%] - View)

  4. Steve Mason: $2.9M, RFA, .907 SV% (1 votes [8.33%] - View)

Miika Kiprusoff: $5.833M, 2014, .870 SV% (2 votes [16.67%] - View)

12 votes. The thread was created on 27 February, 2013. Two things. Not only is there close to no interest from fans regarding Luongo, there's almost no interest in the game of hockey itself.

The first post on anything Luongo is post #14 with 12 replies. The next Luongo thread is... none. Five pages later I'm back to October 14, 2011.

The Luongo interest in Florida fans is 99% none.

Call it for what it is, but with a refusal to trade Bjudgstad comes the refusal to trade Luongo to Florida; the only place he'll waive to go.

Speculation?

YOU BET. But here's the thing, my speculation on the matter is as much worth as 99% of speculated posts on CDC and that's 99% of the posts on CDC.

I like the whole package except Upshall (as said earlier)

What about getting Fleischmann? It doesn't take away anything from Florida's rebuild process.

Versteeg would also be nice once fully healthy.

Neither are very important pieces to Florida's future and can be replaced easily down the road by free-agency, or by prospects

Thomas Fleischmann

Marcel Goc

2nd rd pick 2013

How's that value-wise? I wasn't sold on Goc but judging by Schroeder's inability to stay consistent (much of which I blame on AV)

Goc would be really useful...good for 25+ pts as a 3rd line checking C

Neither of these players affect a RW roster spot that is available for Jensen

More than fair.

The thing is with Florida. They need to continue with some momentum that they had last year, and the main reason for there struggles aside from maybe injuries has been goaltending.

They are only 7 points back and there is still half the season to go, if they made a move like this and got Luongo for a great price aswell as ditch a contract which is an added bonus for them, they could make a long pitch for the playoffs and Luongo is still the most popular Panther ever there or one of them, getting him and getting him for cheap would be a huge sell with the fans.

Thats why we lower the asking price to what I said.

Goc

Petrovic

2nd

Then throw in Upshall as a cap dumb which is a huge bonus for them. Then we wrap the Luongo saga up in a neat little bow and move forward with Cory. (Aswell as a 3rd line center in Goc that we desperately need)

So they trade a bad contract for an even worse contract, they get two pieces that mean nothing to them and are already stacked at that position with upcoming payers this year, next year and in the next two and three? Not happening.
