Would you guys do Luongo for Gagne and Khabibulin (just to take back cash basically)?


At this point, yes.

My memory is him blowing into the zone at breakneck speed, stopping on a dime and drawing a D man forward who draped all over him. Then when he pivoted back to the middle, overpowering and holding off the D he would also draw a forward so he could not just push into the middle and do as he pleased. Drawing two guys; I remember all kinds of little flip passes and dumps to open guys.

He was not a Gretzky like passer, but his brute strength and tact for the game always made space and time easy for other players to get open as they flew through lanes. And no he did not always play with Sakic; see Drury, Tanguay, Claude Lemieux, Hejduk... Assists were a by product of his ability to control the puck, and he did pass it. We're not talking Ryan Kesler here...

That's cause he played with Sakic. He was famous for skating forever without passing. He'd circle the zone on the powerplay. He's one of my favorite players, but he wasn't exactly a pass first guy.

Gardiner sits again....


Interesting.. I haven't heard much about why he's been scratched lately. You would think there would be alot talk about it because of the agent twitter incident and the fact that even what Darcy Tucker had for lunch will make the front page over any other teams news

That would be awesome if he's the centerpiece In a Lu deal. He isn't exactly what we need but he's a very valuable young asset. You can make a solid hockey trade for a player like couturier.

Or package Gardiner up.. Gardiner 1st for Yakupov Ewanyk . I'm sure Edmonton would be intrigued to the idea of Shultz Gardiner and another first to pick another dman outta the first round.... Thoughts? Would they do it? Would you do it?

I still think it is unlikely Toronto gives him up for Lu. I'd of course be all over that deal but he still has an incredibly high ceiling and I'm sure Toronto is well aware of that.

Gardiner would be a good return. Canucks don't have a true offensive dman in the organization. You could argue Edler but he is more of a 2way.

Sounds like the rumor is Biggs, Bozak, gardiner and a conditional 2nd 2015 (1st if Bozak resigns) luongo, Raymond and prab rai

Well if my 2way guy can put up 50pts and hit goalies, I'm ok with that. We have no room for jake. If he was right handed then perfect but I'd rather see if I could package him up to a team that needs young defense for a guy like Yak or similar

You have a source for that? That would be an amazing trade.

My guess is that would be a contract dump cause we're close to the contract limit.

Or the fact that its more than gillis was asking for and the conditional pick doesn't make sense and only benefits Bozak himself.

That would suck if that was the deal and rai turned into a superstar haha.
