      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.

Idea to fix the Luongo situation.

14 posts in this topic

Find another player in the league with similar contract situation that needs to be bought out.

Examples: Brad Richards, Marian Hossa, Bryzgalov, etc.

These players are still solid NHL players; and they have "hockey" value. NYR and CHI are high income teams, and can afford buyouts. During the off-season; these players are all traded for each other. Who gets who doesn't really matter, as they will be bought out by the other teams.

At that point, all the above players become UFA; at which point they can be re-signed by their original teams. The players will love the idea, as they get full salary for the amnesty buyout, plus a new contract. Also, they aren't stuck getting traded to Columbus like Gaborik did. Then they either become UFA or get traded to a contending team.

This will be an interesting off-season as teams with high income will use their amnesty buyouts as a bargaining chip. Certain players like Danny Briere will be valuable to the Islanders or Coyotes. His cap hit is 6.5 for 2 years, but only gets paid 2.5 each year. He also has "hockey" value.

The question is will Bettman and Burke allow rich teams to re-sign their own buyouts; or other teams buyouts. I would gladly buyout Luongo, if the Devils buyout Kovalchuk.

Long story short, we are essentially trading Luongo for some other high-priced but talented player; but one that we can sign to an appropriate contract. This way, no team "gives" away a solid player; but the whole idea requires a bit of "wink wink" with the player agents, GM's, etc.

It will probably end up being Lu and Raymond for Versteeg + ...

Booth and Ballard will be bought out or traded for picks...
