I am not a big fan of deadline day, nor of the Canucks trading a lot of draft picks for the next few years (seems like its been for the past decade that we have needed to hold on to picks)....but Gilman should not have gone on record as saying the team was planning on going "all in" at the deadline. "All in" is what Pittsburgh did...whether you like what they did or not. Canucks picked up a really good depth player in Derek Roy, but they didn't go "all in," because they couldn't. I appreciate Gilman trying to keep the fans entertained and in the loop, but he should have held his cards closer...just sets expectations high amongst fans and sets the stage for disappointment. I still think this team can make a good run in the playoffs, and our two goalie system might just work out for the best! Go Canucks!!! And I hope for Lu's sake that everything works out well for him in the end.....obviously he is a lot more frustrated about this than he has been letting on lately.

The NHL is a fixed old boys club. I've come to acceptance with that and just watch for entertainment. The 2011 & 2012 Canucks are champs in my books. Go Canucks Go!

Miller is not on our list. It's Lack as our #1. There is no reason we would have traded both Schnieder and Luongo if we never intended to give Lack the #1 starting job.  Furthermore, the salary and term Miller is looking for is not in our favor.

Not about the Canucks.

He knew the Leafs and Canucks didn't have a deal.

That's all I will give that ponce credit for.

That just means that Toronto was the only team remotely interested in Luongo.

No it doesn't.

What it means is that in those time intervals MG was calling the other teams too to see if they had decided to agree on his asking price.

if you look at what Dregar said... Scrivens + picks.

Scrivens, 1st rounder + 2nd rounder? or
Scrivens 1st rounder + 3rd rounder?

I don't think thats too much to ask.

Look at your source.

Dreger and Nonis are family.

There is absolutely no indication that the Canucks budged at all or that T.O. was the only team they were talking to.

Oh man thanks for me making laugh everyone.

Why does everyone want to make a trade for a sake of making a trade?

Everyone cryed about getting a Centre, what does GIllis do? Goes out and gets Derek Roy for a 2nd and Connauton. People complain that Roy won't do anything and won't produce. Then also complain about trading Connauton, where he wasn't in the Canuck future because he can't play defense and wouldn't last in the NHL.

Move on to the trade deadline day and people complain Gillis didn't make one trade at all. He called the leafs many times with different deals all got turned down, it takes two teams to make a trade. This trade deadline day was a lot different from past years since there is still a lot of buyers rather than sellers. is this team going to compete for the cup most likely not but why trade for players like Torres? Would that put the Nucks over the top heck out. Just going into the trade deadline all you have to look at is what trading pieces does the Canucks actually have. All they have is Luongo and that deal was pretty much not going to get down at all, since Gillis wanted a roster player which make sense for depth purposes.

In a perfect world maybe , It means Gillis was desperate to get a deal done for Luongo with Toronto because there the only ones that had some interest but at this point i doubt there interest was serious being there goaltending has been good so far this season .

He could have been trying to put together deals for a winger and dman between calls with Toronto for all we know

Yes we all know there family , Unless your trying to say they have an agenda of propaganda by using false reports then what does it matter except Dreger should be a perty good source for Leafs news

If he was asking for a first then there is no doubt why Nonis said no

MG went after multiple people sometimes trades don't happen but Roy will really help for a stronger push in the playoffs

The Naslund trade and the Ronning, Momesso and Dirk trade were over 10 years ago so ok I'll let your comment pass.

Gillis has managed the Luongo situation very badly from the start. It should have been an open competition for the #1 goalie job instead of declaring Schneider the starter and putting Luongo on the block for every one to know.

Had he kept it under wraps that Luongo was being shopped and it wasn't so obvious like it is now they easily could have found a team last summer to do the deal.

Now it is a headache and distraction for all parties involved.

Trade Luongo in the summer and then fire Gillis and A.V if they make another early playoff exit.

Hard to keep in under wraps when Luongo said it's time to move on after the playoff exit last spring.

Yep. Over a year and Luongo still hasn't been dealt. How much longer is he going to make him wait!

3 months.

I'm pretty sure between his agent and MG, Lou was told to suck it up. He's a rich man with a wife and kids in a beautiful city.

It is only his pride getting in the way of his performance for the rest of the year. Lou's quote about going off yesterday and refocusing was an indication that he understands exactly what he needs to do to rectify the situation.

Just play. For 3 months. That's all that's within his control now.
