it was his end of the season interview, sounds like staal is gone and they want a cheaper 3rd line center allowing them to spend the money on a better top 6/dmen

why would you want a dman that constantly gets walked around on either side he plays. the only thing he can do ok is hit and usually after he goes to hit someone the other team scores because hes out of position. constantly out of position/making bad plays and would make mason raymond look like a superstar on a shift.

WTF!?? Playoffs aren't even over and this:

Quote:
james duthie ‏ @tsnjamesduthie
Sources say Roberto Luongo will submit a short list of teams he'd waive his no-trade to go to next week. Toronto will be on it.
Sooo soon - I thought this would be discussed over months.

Hes only 22 and defenceman takes time and discipline to find their game. We'll see which teams are on the list for luu then come up with assumptions.

Maybe ballard and Komisarek could swap too

ive been hearing that excuse since he joined the league 4 years ago. picking up schenn is incredibly stupid even worse is that hes at 3.6mil per season. would rather go for gardiner or the pick. if neither dont trade to TO, overpay for jason garrison in the offseason and trade lu to nj/tb.

This stat doesn't really mean anything.

Pavol Demitra was over a point a game guy in the AHL and he didn't do too badly in the NHL when he was younger.

Looking at some of the top scorers from the AHL from past seasons, I don't recognize too many names in the NHL.

It's hard to believe Luongo would list the Leafs.

-Not a cup contender
-Media scrutiny

If a guys won a cup, they might want to go to a team they've cherished or have always wanted to play for (Rangers, Habs etc), but the fucking Leafs?

he knows he's got starter on lockdown there. maybe he wants to be a part of the rebuilding process? he wants to be a key piece?

just some guesses

Interesting to note that Francois Allaire, the goaltending coach with the Leafs, is really close with Luongo and works with him in the summer. Does this mean October Lu is there all season if he joins the Leafs?

I would be shocked if Burke gave away Gardiner. But it is Burke.

Has anyone been following the Justin Schultz story? Top prospect that looks like he'll become a UFA. He's from Kelowna and his game is exactly what we'll need.

I feel for Lu if he goes to TO. Guy wants a cup so bad, did so much for the Canucks organization despite all the idiotic fans unjustifiably blaming him for losses (when a lack of offense or poor defense were really to blame in so many cases) that I just want to see him retire with a ring. With the Canucks or not.

To me, Luongo retiring without a ring is like Linden retiring without one. Two guys 100% committed and focused on winning with the Canucks.

If he goes to TO, there is no chance he wins a cup. Even if he does play to the end of his contract

If Toronto plays the exact same way with Lu in net instead of the two sieves they had last year, they make the playoffs

Toronto is indeed on Roberto Luongo's list of teams he'll submit to #canucks GM Mike Gillis and it should come as no surprise Tampa Bay is 2

My guess is that Tampa Bay is on top of Lu's list of teams that he wouldn't mind being a trade destination. His wife's hometown is close to Tampa and that team gives Lu a better chance of winning the Cup than Toronto.

Reimer was actually playing well and had decent stats before the concussion. He wasn't the same after that. Hopefully he will have fully recovered by the start of next season.

On Schenn, has played almost all of his NHL career under Ron Wilson, who has spent his entire coaching career unaware that defence is a part of the game. On paper, the Leafs have a good young core. I will wait to see how he and others do under Carlyle after he has a chance to implement an actual defencive system.

Gardiner was an absolute steal, so was Lupul as it turned out, and I really don't see Burke giving him up or a first for Lu and the type of contract he absolutely despises.

Possibly, but hey, Columbus made it once too. Doesn't mean they'll actually do something
