      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.

I watched a Gillius interview pre-deadline. He did his standard Lou has been a pro, there's been interest but if nothing happens we'll owe it to both guys to make a move in summer, we're happy to go all year if???

But he also responded to a question about interest in Schneider and whether we'd consider moving him. I can't quote, dangerous to even paraphrase but vthe answer baically said Lou would have to come back to us and let us know he wants to be here...

This remains an issue where Lou appears clearly to want out. He may have tried to drive the bus last year, but I agree he probably is willing to buy tickets to new detsinations this year.

Perhaps way back in one of the first few threads something similar was mentioned, but it certainly wouldn't be anything where he'd prevent a deal just until AV was fired. AV has nothing to do with Luongo's position now, it's all about how Schneider has come up and replaced him as the starter.

Even then, I don't think Luongo has any interest in vetoing any and all possible trades so he can stay in Vancouver. He's made it clear he'd like to be in Florida at least, and he doesn't want to share time with Schneider (or stay here as a backup) long term. Perhaps, if a deal is made for Schneider to be traded, he'd consider staying but without knowing what he's thinking that's not more than an outside possibility at this point.

Well, Columbus has a young goalie ahead of even Schneider, according to some, in the Vezina race. Your probably right about Columbus, but not for the reason you might be thinking?

Why woouldn't Lou go to Edmonton or Calgary? Edmonton has a great future & Calgary is a great place to live! I don't see them as a play-off team; but nixing Iginla, likely their goalie and big Bow thjey have money to spend when the opportunity presents itself.

Count NYR, the Habs, COLUMBUS, the Sharks, LA, Boston, Detroit & Ottawa as teams he wont go to. They already have goaltending. Top odd's he goes to an up and coming team without a star goalie. Next up; a re-building team. Last a play off team who has a fall out in goal. Or Philly, a team to their own. :rolleyes: Lots of places for Lou and no reason to discount Calgary or Edmonton!

I think ... well, pretty much the exact opposite. He might have been picky last summer,but by now I think he just wants out.

I'd say Calgary, Edmonton, mmmaybe Buffalo and Columbus would be the only teams he'd reject at this point.

I do not see how a player not being traded would lead to a coaching change in any way.

Just trade Luongo for a 3rd rounder or 2nd rounder. Atleast we get something decent, if we keep pushing we will push too much and fall off the cliff and value goes down.

Luongo, Ballard and our first to Philly

Laughton and their first back 11th overall - They get their goalie, a top 4 dman (both big needs) an still have a first rounder. They have youth and Philly fans wont take not making the playoffs again. They move a non roster player and get a solid dman (if played in the right spot) and a hell of a goalie. They become contenders in the East again.

Then move Beiksa and that first to Edm for their 1st (Edmonton keeps a high pick -11 and gets a good vet dman - again a BIG need. We lose a bit but need to give to get).

Then move Jensen and the Edm Pick to FLA for second overall (Fla has alot of young centers, they dont NEED Mckinnon. My guess is they'd prefer getting Jones but Colorado its a no brainer). Edm has the number 6? or 7 right so they still have a very high pick AND get Jensen. No brainer for them.

We end up with #2 and get McKinnon (the first line center we're dying for).

Future Core

Mckinnon, Schnieder, Edler, Tanev, Corrado, Kassian, Gaunce, Laughton.

Depth down the middle.

Give up Lou, Ballard, Bieksa and Jensen for Laughton and Mckinnon.

Sounds like alot but think here

Lou and Ballard are gone, need to be, so we get alot of cap room back too...kind of 'throw ins' but are better so it sounds like alot but from OUR perpective they are.

Therefore we're giving up Bieksa and Jensen for Mckinnon and Laughton

I make that trade

He is in even more charge now. If I'm Luongo and his agent I want the compliance buy out. Why go to Edmonton when you can force Gillis' hand and be a UFA with a giant 30 plus million dollar cheque in the back of said bus he is driving? Get all of your money from the Canucks and more form the Panthers. That's the end game if they are smart about it. And why Gillis has zero leverage.

If we're gonna trade him, safe to say his trade value increased.

He did lose both games. Couldn't make the final saves that counted.

Pretty Simple folks

1. For all those saying lou cost us the game. Again, I am a go with Schnieder guy but Lou has played lights out. 3 goals in 2 games for, 1 of which we didnt even score. Well you cant blame him for losses

2. The game would have been 4-0 with in the first period had he not stood on his head

3. Yes the last one was a leaker but it happens it found a hole. If Hansen could hit a friggen empty net or AV is smart enough to put his best checkers on the ice vs trying to get the sedin's an empty netter to get them going we win.

4. His value has increased, anyone critisizing goaltending right now is out to lunch

5. Cherry just helped his value tonight on coaches corner. He called out our scorers and said the problem in Vancouver is not our goalies, to which I concur.

6. Never has been our goalies just that we have two great ones, and the younger one is slightly better and cheaper.

7. That doesn't mean Lou sucks...
