      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

What is your opinion on Marty Brodeur, Dominic Hasek, Tim Thomas and Jonathan Quick?

Technically unsound, therefore unpreferred?

Sure, all 4 of the above has Cups, but they also had Stevens, Daneyko, Niedermeyer, Lidstrom, Chara or Doughty. Luongo does not have a Cup, but he is elite, and is a Stanley Cup away from being one of the greatest goaltenders. Schneider and his technically sound ass will never be in that conversation. Some people are just naturally talented - Luongo is one.

And is Schneider really that level-headed? He is being given every opportunity to take the #1 job and he's choking at even that.

Lol this cracked me up, thanks for that one oldnews

And just to touch on the situation for a moment. (I saw you post about the Leafs earlier)

Toronto is on there annual spiral down the standings it seems, and it is evident once again the luck Scrivens and Riemer have been experiencing is all but gone.

We need a center, and with the way Kadri has been playing (and on the third line) aswell as the way McClement has supplied some offence lately, aswell as having Grabovski, and also having Tim Connolly and Joe Colbourne in waiting who could probably contribute.

Perhaps that would open up Tyler Bozak once again, which would be a huge add for us.

VAN

Bozak

Frattin

Scrivens

2nd

TOR

Luongo

Sauve

Rodin

- Bozak is the perfect 3rd line center for this team.

- Frattin is a young player, still developing and can already contribute on the 2nd or 3rd line.

- Scrivens can be a quality backup

- 2nd is nice to get in this draft year

I got a funny feeling were about to get a hodgson style shock but better and were not so wtf about it.. Trades gonna come out of nowhere and were trading Cory for a real good young centre..

None of the analysts say a word about it, all they say is gillis is working the phones like crazy but there's no market. Got a feeling the max offer for Lu is going to be mediocre and sufficient at best and there will be a Schneider deal that blows him away and he has to take it.

Hey SK - I think that's a fair deal - and I think if the Leafs were smart, they'd jump at that right now. With their history of tanking, facing a four game losing streak with exactly the same group of players, and being right on the cusp of a playoff spot, I think they'd be very wise to bring in Luongo right now.

Can you get Steckel thrown in? I miss Manny's faceoff prowess and the Leafs aren't using him...

I proposed something very similar before the season and before Lack got injured - Luo for Bozak, Frattin and a 2nd (got slightly flamed, but I like Frattin (and his RF- I like the addition of Scrivens with Lack injured... I also proposed Bozak, Frattin, Franson before the season, but at this point the Leafs wouldn't be able to afford to move Franson - he's been their best blueliner this year imo. Perhaps we could throw in Ballard for Franson... :ph34r:

I think your deal is fair value - if we could swap depth centers in Ebbett and Steckel, I think it would be a good thing for both guys. I really like Ebbett - I think he'd play regularly in Toronto in the absence of Bozak - whereas here, his minutes are probably numbered once a deal is cut (and Schroeder is going to limit Ebbett's future) - Steckel could probably see fourth line Manny-role minutes here, being a big left handed faceoff specialist - with Lappy and Pinnizzotto, I'd really like the looks of the Canucks depth.

I find this highly unlikely, but maybe i'll be proved wrong. My overall feeling is Jonathan Bernier will be target before Schneider does, Younger, cheaper, almost as good of stats, only 30 games less and the biggest factor. He will cost much less to acquire.

Yeah I agree, I think Steckel could be added for next to nothing, or nothing at this point, since really all he is useful for is faceoffs, other than that he has been a disaster this season and a healthy scratch.

I agree on Franson, at the beginning of the year I was kinda interested but now I don't see him moving and I don't think we need him, Garrison has look really good on the right side.

This could be are chance though, we need to jump at Bozak+ (+ being a young guy like Frattin with another future) if we get the opportunity, then we can wrap this situation up and move on into the playoffs with a more rounded line-up.

Well we will have the opportunity to re-sign him in the re-sign period, so maybe depending on what the price is.

Although I would rather just let him go and have Jordan Schroeder take on that spot next year.

Yeah if they are willing to give us the 1st I would too, just not sure if they would, and at this point getting Bozak and a good young player like Frattin who is playing very well (Probably at the calibre of Kassian/Tanev to compare him to us) I would take it and get this situation over with once and for all.
