      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.

And where are we going to find that for Luongo?

We are going to have to drop cap space anyway so I don't understand how we could bring a player like that in.

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.

A goalie to Buffalo is starting to look like a real possibility to me.

Three months ago I would have never thought so.

I dunno man.. I got this feeling all teams interested in luongo are still too on the fence to give up something worthwhile, like mattias and 3rd hoping we make a desperate bite. Florida knows they can wait till the offseason if they want him so they hold off. Gillis can't take "mattias and a 3rd" or he looks like a fool. But if some deal that comes along for the kid that makes it look like he made a good hockey trade, he can play it off how he was a player they had targeted for a while and when he became available they jumped on it. Something like couturier or a hefty package he can play off like it was the best decision for the future of the club. I dunno could go either way but gillis is at a crossroad in his personal career with this goalie move. Does he want to leave a legacy of the bandaid luongo trade of 2013 or the splash of youth he risked his young star goalie for.

If he does nothing he looks like an idiot. If he trades luongo for a mediocre return he looks like an idiot. If he trades Schneider for couple good youngsters, he still has a chance to look like a hero... Don't get me wrong, It could still backfire, but won't be near as much backlash as if he doesn't knock a luongo trade out of the park after waiting this long.

The ball is in gillis court and the future of our franchise is at a major crossroads here. It's starting to get pretty exciting lol

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.

Tbh I think that because this has dragged on for so long unless Gillis completely shocks the world and gets an amazing deal it is going to be a lose lose situation when it comes to critique on how the situation was handled and how long it took to get what he got. If for some reason Schneider was the one to go I think the backlash would be alot worse because of the perceived "promise" of the number 1 slot everyone seems to think was given to schneider

Steckel hasn't been very good this year - I'm not sure if his MCL has been the cause, but he's not playing very good hockey for some reason - he's being used in odd ways, is hardly seeing any ice time, and his faceoff % is off his norm, but I think he's a useful guy to have in the cupboard. I also doubt he's in his twilight years - he's only 30, he's in a contract season, and who knows what a change of scenery could do for him. Perhaps a few practices pitted against Manny would get him back into form... But not really important. Lapierre could probably handle the role just fine, with Pinizzotto on his wing - however, they're both right handed guys - Henrik actually took a short handed defensive zone faceoff tonight because it was on the left side...

Frattin is the part of a deal with the Leafs that I wouldn't compromise on.

Garrison has looked good on the right side - not surprising since he played so much and so well on Campbell's right side, and I like Ballard, but if we could add a natural right side guy and an RFA/cap friendly guy like Franson, I'd make the change.

Luo Ballard, Sauve and Rodin (if TO would want them)

Frattin, Franson, Bozak, Scrivens, 2nd.

That would depend on which goalie Buffalo would set their sights on. Schneider one would think but Darcy Regier is pretty maverick.

The obvious guys we'd be interested in would be Ott, Vanek, Myers....

It's MG, it's this time of year, and we are in an unusual situation, so I expect anything I think could happen to be way off base.

Maybe Schneider, but not Luongo while they still hold Miller.

My thought is they are going to do a semi re-build and not send off assets for a push, rather takes some years to establish a new core around there young players and some remaining veterans.

I don't think they are a great partner right now, maybe in the summer but who knows. Just my opinion either way.

Okay where and for who? It is great to suggest that but look at the team that might take Luongo and tell me who that player is, and if they would give that player up or not?

And if the price will be accepted or makes sense for us to do.

So what do you propose? Give me a team and a name here.

I'd like Logan Couture...It most likely will not be a direct trade with San Jose. So trading Luongo or Schneider for the highest return and then using that ammo to make the trade for Logan. Far to much focus is done on just strictly trading Luongo to a a set team, ie Florida, and getting the return player directly from that team. That really limits possible trade scenarios and limits returns also.

It would be interesting to see how a major shake-up for both squads could happen with Buffalo though if Schneider goes back.

(BTW, I think Miller is out the door. They'll move him if they can get a goalie who is signed, meaning Lou is not out of the question midseason, IMO)

The price for Couture would be massive and I don't think we have enough time to make a deal to acquire those assets then flip them to SJ this soon to the deadline. If they would even get the deal done.
