So as per Darren Dreger and Pierre Lebrun, the Canucks made 3 offers in the final hour to TO and all 3 were refused. They asked for Ben Scrivens and 2 2nd round picks ( which IMO isn't asking for much) and Nonis said no to that!! The guy gave up 2nd round picks away here in Van like there was no tomorrow.

Nonis was playing hard ball, and pretty much wanted him for free! I'm glad the trade didn't go through, but I do hope the Leafs' goalies **** the bed and the whole team crashes and burns, then watch them come crying back for Lu. By then I hope we have another team that might be interested. (btw, if there really were 4 teams the Canucks were talking to like Gillis said, then why did they desperately make those 3 offers in the last hour to just one team?)

As for Lu, I feel bad for the guy. He's been a class act through this whole fiasco. He is the best goalie this franchise has ever had and he deserves better then this. He doesn't deserve to be a bench warmer. A person can be patient only for so long. If Schneider were to falter, would Lu be in the right state mentally to play well for us? He sounded really frustrated at the presser today.

Would it be possible that if a deal is just as hard to make in the off-season, that Lu himself asks management to buy him out? That way he would be free to go anywhere on his own. If that were to happen, Gillis' should be fired.

Nonis thought of it as a "favour" by taking Luongo off our hands so I see why there wasn't an agreement. He wanted him for free.

Oh please. Nonis isn't the only GM out there that said no. It's just Toronto's media covering Toronto matters.

I think if Philly buys out Bryz that they would take him at that price.

Mason + 2nd + 2nd.

I would do it. Could even swap one of the 2nd's for a decent prospect if they choose.

If that was actually the offer, TO should have taken it. They would have been a much stronger team overall with Lu in net.

I'm glad that trade didn't happen. We need an impact player coming our way, even if it was MacArthur or a 6th Dman. Otherwise we're better off waiting till Summer.

If that was the offer im truly worried about just moving Luo for anything in the summer. Hope T.O.'s goaltending fails miserably in the playoffs for our sake.

I was thinking the same thing that if Philly buys out Bryz, we could have a potential trade partner. As for the trade, I was thinking Lu straight up for Couturier

Why should Toronto be obligated to clean up this mess MG created?

I hope MG goes down.

This is a complete disaster

What is wrong with you people?

You really think Philly is going to give up Couturier after Nonis turned down 2-2nds and Scrivens?

Wake up!! We are lucky to trade him at all at this point.

Luongo says his contract is the "Anchor" preventing him from being traded, so with this in mind, I propose the following.

1) Canucks use one of their amnesty buy-outs to buy-out Luongo.'s contract after the season under the condition that Luongo re-signs with Vancouver at a salary that is marketable (let's say 3 years 4 mil per).

2) Canuck's agree to trade Luongo before training camp opens, obviously the canucks will get more for Luongo at a marketable salary.

-I like the loop holery in this proposal
-Canucks have the cash...Canucks get a decent return from Luongo. And Canucks unload the anchor without hurting the team.


Is this against the rules?

In my eyes drouin is overrated he can score in the qmjhl but did nothing in last two gold medal games that canada lost. Fox will be better pro than him talk to me in five yrs

Gaudreau has one NHL goal whereas all your "prized" prospects have none.

   ryan kesler is going to the chicago blackhawks ...       quote me on it

Considering they're currently matching up against the Bruins first round, I highly doubt that. They're defence and goaltending will be their downfall in a playoff series. Neither are good and/or experienced enough to make it far and Nonis will have some questions if they implode spectacularly enough.

The term of Luongo's contract is hard to swallow for other GMs and owners. This lowers his value quite a bit and MG has been asking for the moon since the beginning. If MG lowered the asking price in the beginning, Luongo likely would have been traded already. He held out and lost.

It's not your fault that you like the Leafs. Many Canadians have been brainwashed by mainsteam media in the likes of CBC, TSN, and Sportsnet. You're a victim, and one day, probably when the Leafs are actually in the post-season and you get zero Canucks coverage because the entire Canadian media world is having a Leaf orgasm, you'll understand the real enemy.

reminds me of the canucks lately...

and no i do not hope the leafs crash and burn. its good to see them have the success they are having. long time coming and they are way more exciting to watch right now than the canucks (though that is a byproduct of the style the east plays vs the west)
