      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.

(Rumor) Canucks, Leafs are back talking again

169 posts in this topic

Toronto has pieces who could fit. I would be cautious including a center in that package it should be a separate deal. grabo and bozak could fit i just don't like the rental possibility and grabos contract. Jake gardiner must be included in this deal though or i continue to wait.

Bozak, Roy, Ott, Mattias are our best options for centre depth at the deadline. Of which Bozak and Roy are the most likely moved players. Of which, only the Leafs would consider having Lu on their payroll. So there you have it. If you want to move Lu for centre depth, it's Bozak.

Not that we should've try acquiring a centre via other means...

Note: Nabokov and Thomas will be off their books next year, but they are still eating DiPietro's contract as well as Yashin's buyout. LOL! So it all depends on how Snow want to handle DiPietro.

Get Grabovski + picks & prospects, then make a move for Jagr and the Canucks could be set for a long run, esp. if Kesler and Kass are back..

Sedin - Sedin - Burrows

Raymond - Kesler - Jagr

Higgins - Grabovski - Hansen

Pinner - Lapierre - Kassian

Weise, Schroeder, Sestito, Ebbett, Gordon, Booth?

What are you smoking? You're basing this on stats during a lock out season in which Lu hasn't even started half of the games.If you want to compare stats why don't you compare his career stats, they're certainly tops in the league. He's got a better career SP% than Marty Fcuking Brodeur. Here, I'll help you list the teams with a better goalie than LU.

Boston

Los Angeles

New York Rangers

Montreal

Nashville

and for now New Jersey

I basically have no faith in any media source regarding trade speculation.

Anything these puppets tell us are controlled by GM's none of them have an inside track.

These clowns are just as credible as anyone of us on these boards.

The only difference is they are on TV and make money off an educated "if you call it that" guess

Starting rumors about people with lives to make money.

Awesome

My favorite is how Luongo supposedly turned down a trade to Toronto, and how it has grown into this huge selfish act when in no way is this proven to be true. Heck they even know the players involved.

Stupid selfish Luongo

But ya, now they are talking again.

Cause Luongo has magically changed his mind?

Or is it because he has sat on the bench for 6 games? "ya ok ill go to Toronto now"

And we are all suppose to believe this crap cause some blabber mouth said so?

How many years have we listened to Iginla rumors?

How about that poor bugger?

I don't understand how these guys get away with this.

Totally done with all this nonsense.

What Lou did in the past is in the past. He was middle of the pack last season and worse this season. His game is in decline and no longer a top 10 goalie in this league.Listen to the man cuz hes right, and you missed a lot of teams there chum.

I'd be worried about Bozak coming here and becoming a dud.

He seems to have found his place on the Leafs, but could he produce on this team? I'm not so sure.

No way would I be happy about him being the center piece of a deal.

I think Bozak would be an excelent addition to this team and he would fill a similar role as Hodgson did, playing on the third line and the second pp. We have to accept that Luo has lost a lot of value due to next years salary cap and the trade has to mirror that. Bozak being a UFA at the end of the season just lowers his value, which I see as a positive for us, as why wouldn't he want to sign with us? whenever players come here they rave about how great the locker room is and everything that is on offer for them. I wouldn't mind spending 3 million on a player like Bozak who can fill in pretty much any role on any team in the NHL if needed.

To Toronto:

Roberto Luongo

To Vancouver:

Tyler Bozak

2nd Round pick 2013

most reasonable offer I have seen so far, might be able to get a goaltender back.

I agree with ya on not being the center piece.. I believe he would really help though. He's playing extremely well right now.

I think bozak and a first is more than fair.. Helps us now and we get another first round pick.

I would do Bozak, Scrivens, and Joe Colbrone for Lou and a 3rd.

Bozak would be a good temporary solution, but the Canucks wouldnt be able to afford to re-sign him without moving Booth or Ballard. Joe Colborne is insurance and another center.

Change the 3rd to a 2nd if thats what it takes to get the deal done, it's worth it if Colborne is included.

Bozak has developed nicely with the leafs and we don't need him to be a number 1 (which is likely your concern if i read between the lines here).

In Toronto, he is playing with Kessel and was playing with Lupul before Kadri emerged so one could argue it was those two carrying him.

That being said, many people said the same about BMO when he was between Bert and Nazzy but he was a terrific 2nd/3rd center in his own right.

I think Bozak is a terrific #3, a good fill in #2 and a player that fills the needs we have here. He certainly is not a number one but he doesn't need to be here.

Moreoever, if we can find a way to make him feel at home here and re-sign him and get a first I'd take it.

Deep draft, two first round picks and a 5 ml off the books.

It gives also gives us some flexibility, ie at the draft maybe you approach a team like NYI or Edmonton and offer Ballard and a swap of firsts to move higher. etc etc.

Regardless have two firsts in this year's draft would really help this team
