So where does Luongo end up? (Keep All Luongo Proposals Here!)
 
The way these playoffs are going already you'd have to think Schneider will get the nod for game 3. If he excels, there is no point in keeping Luongo any longer. He's been given his shot time and time again. It's just not working out in Vancouver come playoffs.

This is a hypothetical thread so don't get all pissy screaming at me saying I don't know anything about Vancouver. Just an outsider's observations.

What are reasonable destinations for Luongo? I know I'd be scared if he finds his way to Tampa.

dredeye 04-14-2012 12:00 AM

only destination is the bench for the Canucks. He won't be traded.

Luongo should be pissed off, he is playing his ass off, and canucks defense playing awful.

If cory starts game 3, Luongo has every right to be pissed off.

Luongo is a plug and an idiot, but I agree with this post.

Two shorties, embarrassing. 3 Kings surrounding him on a pp and chip one in, awful. His own player trying to score on him then another 2 sit around and watch while someone puts in a wraparound, laughable.

I'd love to dust off some "pump the tires" Luongo pictures but in good conscious I can't. The entire team is failing miserably.

Luongo has played really well, and deserves to play next game. You don't go for a shakeup by removing your best player. Maybe benching some top line guys would be a better strategy.

IF he is available, Burke is making a huge pitch.

I hope Toronto.

But he probably won't be traded.

The Coyotes, if they move to Quebec City.

TheHudlinator 04-14-2012 12:29 AM

He is the only player to show up so far he wouldn't be traded.

HockeyThoughts 04-14-2012 12:33 AM

He won't be traded.

But assuming he is you'll definitely have the Leafs, Lightning, Oilers, Blue Jackets and perhaps even the Devils bidding for his services. Luongo is a proven goaltender, signed to a fair cap hit and has extensive regular season and playoff success. He has also posted great stats on both powerhouse teams and crappy teams which is obviously encouraging for the teams looking to acquire him.

I think NHL GM's tend to value Luongo far higher than HFBoards ever will. 727 NHL regular season games played, 61 playoff games played, 3 Vezina nominations, 2 Lester B. Pearson nominations, 1 Hart nomination, 1 Jennings win, 1 Gold Medal win as starter, and he led his team to Game 7 SCF just last season! He just turned 33 and has many, many years left playing at an above stellar level and is actually in contention for the best Canuck thus far in the series versus the Kings.

You are badly contradicting yourself. He is a plug yet he is playing well?.

have you watched the games, because Luongo has been by far the best canucks player

Crossbar Ping 04-14-2012 12:38 AM

Just my gut but I think the Leafs are going to throw a huge wad of cash at Schneider this summer. Like, unrefusable.

No chance.. Schneider is an RFA. It's one of Burke's cardinal rules to not pursue RFA's the traditional way. Instead he will gift additional picks (in contrast to conventional RFA compensation) to Vancouver in a trade to help compensate his polite way of doing business. :help:

TMLOBI 04-14-2012 03:04 AM

Leafs. Not sure what it would take but we'll gladly take him off the nucks hands!

Youreallygotme 04-14-2012 03:09 AM

I can't stand seeing him blamed for this series. It's unbearable. His team has been a joke. They allow breakaways after odd man rushes after whatever else you can do wrong. So embarrassing to see him slagged like this. Maybe they should prevent 2 on 0s? Just a thought.

I hope not. He will be a choking Canuck for life. No one will take that contract and he has an NTC.

Vancouver.

nmbr_24 04-14-2012 08:47 AM

Do some people really think that the Canucks being behind 2-0 is Luongo's fault?

I watched most of both games and I thought he played pretty darn well, the hole they are in is certainly nothing to do with Luongo.

I do think they may start Schneider just to shake things up and really wake the team up, but that is the only reason.
