How the fuck was Malhotra not a finalist for the Masterton trophy?

Lupul, Alfredsson, Pacioretty

wasn't Lupul already nominated in the past?

Pastarocket: What are you talking about? Gillis has made bold moves, particularly this season. He traded for David Booth and he traded everyone's favourite player Cody Hodgson for an unproven prospect and a bag of pucks (Gragnani.)

He offered Sundin 10 million over 2 years. Gillis has largely been bold, but his trades haven't worked out as well as they should have. However, he could be bolder by firing AV and bringing in the best coach not in the NHL: Ted Nolan.

Yeah what he said about Cody is surprising coming from Gillis. All these years, I remember he was very good with his wording and knowing what to say. Kinda surprising seeing what he says about Cody.

I wonder what @HockeyAgentDad is going to say.

I wonder if Kesler is going to play for Team USA. He has a shoulder injury though.

Dan Murphy ‏ @sportsnetmurph

#canucks Luongo says he'll waive his no trade clause if Gillis asks him to.

I like this tweet from JTBournce:

Mike Gillis: "I believe in offense." /trades for every two-way player left in the league #Pahlsson'd

I think it's pretty clear that he would like a trade.

Gillis is on record as saying that he would never ask a player to waive his NTC.

The fickle fans of Vancouver have gotten their wish: the Luongo era is over.

I remember way back in 2006 when people on the interweb were praying for a Luongo trade...

This is a goalie graveyard.
Yup, I know MG said that but I was saying Luongo wants a trade. Even if he stays, he'll only play half-hearted from now on. I guess Lu could just be saying what he thinks is right to leave it in the hands of MG.

@FarhanLaljiTSN: #Luongo would be willing to waive his NTC if asked. Doesn't want to stand in the way if team decides to go with Cory. #canucks

Mcletchie on 1040 this morning mentioned that Hodgson might have been surprised at the timing of the trade and figured an off-season move would've atleast afforded him a chance to play in the playoffs.

A guy like Luongo doesn't come around very often to a franchise.

I was reading the Vancouver Sun today. There was a little article from Schneider's agent that he wouldn't be surprised if we kept both Luongo and Schneider. 1A and 1B goalies.

Just the fact that Luongo is gone, we would have a lot more cap space to spend elsewhere.

If Luongo gets traded, lets hope it's someone that can bring an impact to the team.
