Canucks AGM Laurence Gilman said acquisition of Derek Roy "potentially" changes the asking price on Roberto Luongo. For example, a W or D.
Canucks GM on team1040, dropping news left and right.

Full interview as per CCF23

Quote:

Gilman:

Deal has been in the works for a bit. Dallas wasn't sure what direction they were headed in.

Liked that he was dynamic. Will come in as 3rd C, likely playing with Higgins and Hansen. Ideally your 3rd line C is 6'4 220LBS and can shut down the other team's top line. We're not built like a typical team.

Roy can take faceoffs, play 20 mins a game, at times has been a 30 goal scorer in the NHL. Aside from on ice, provides and emotional lift for the team. With injuries, etc, will provide a big boost.

This deal potentially means the asking price on Luongo has changed. Talking about Kesler having played wing in the past.

Deal means we don't need a C in the Luongo trade. Can look more at a winger or D man now.

Asked about Clowe. Can't answer that question. Talking about a player on another team with a NTC who can essentially select where he goes. Dimension of the deal with a player with NTC becomes a 3 year deal. Contract extension plays in. A lot of moving parts.

Goaltender market - clearly discussion going on around the league. If teams that are not the Vancouver Canucks are in discussion for acquiring a goaltender, it stands to reason that those teams would be discussing goaltending deals with us.

We're not done trying to improve the team. We're looking to make at least one more move. Possibly two. Working every angle.

Are we good enough now? Competitive enough, but would still like to give ourselves a better chance. Would like to see what our team looks like when the dust settles tomorrow.

Kassian in the AHL because he hasn't played in a couple weeks. In a playoff race, trying to win a division, we need to get him down playing games to the extent where he can adjust to playing again. We don't have the luxury to let him do that in the NHL right now.

With Raymond out, Sweatt in for speed reasons.

Kassian needs to play well to get back up to the NHL. Not a given he'll be back.

Higgins is "7th forward". Player who is a top level 3rd liner who has the ability to play top 6 and to move around within top 6, and play all 3 forward positions. Part of PK, and has been used 2nd unit PP. Exceptional human being. Made it very clear he wanted to stay in Vancouver. Told us from the moment he got here he loved it here. Looked at the market, and like many players (Sedins, Burrows, Bieksa, Edler, Hamhuis, Garrison), they've all bought in. Agreed that if we're gonna do this together, it means we'll take less. Chris left money on the table to play here.

Gilman won't talk about cap specifics. Booth is already on LTIR. Booth won't be returning "for the season". Won't say if Manny is on LTIR.

Deal could happen in the next 15 minutes for all he knows. Could happen tomorrow.

"We know we have a chance to compete to win the cup, and to do that, we need to have a complete roster". Need another forward, and would look at another D man for our bottom pairing. I guess we're "all in".

Gil- man and Gil-lis are the same person, have you ever seen them together ?!?

Schalkenullvier* 04-02-2013 02:29 PM

TSN, sportsnet and 2 others like this

DEVILS ALL THE WAY* 04-02-2013 02:31 PM

Volchenkov/Tallinder for picks... please, pleeeeeeeeeease.

wiredmaverick 04-02-2013 02:32 PM

I'm thinking Clowe and Luongo. But Gillis usually does something completely out of the blue at the deadline so who knows.

Lucbourdon 04-02-2013 02:33 PM

More stuff from gilman: "We are all in(paraphrase). We need a complete roster. We could use another forward and defenseman.

MISC* 04-02-2013 02:33 PM

IN:


Clowe
Ott


OUT:

Luongo
Picks

Cloudedthought 04-02-2013 02:35 PM

When asked about going allin this year he caught himself but pretty much said yes!

Mention of a Dman makes me think they got something in place on that front,otherwise they would have been tight lipped.

DopeyFish 04-02-2013 02:35 PM

please take kostka. we'll take luongo.

TOML 04-02-2013 02:37 PM

1. The return of Torres.
2. Another young guy goes in exchange for an old guy.

CookieCrumbs* 04-02-2013 02:38 PM

Clowe
Torres
Right Shot D

LickTheEnvelope 04-02-2013 02:39 PM

BTW Canucks need:

1. Top 6 winger
2. PP Specialist D-man
3. Spare center...

petrishriekandgo 04-02-2013 02:39 PM

Ott/Erhoff and Clowe

Siludin 04-02-2013 02:40 PM

I doubt it's for another rental unless there are some conditions attached. Next deal will probably be a Luongo-dump or hockey deal involving players with term.

Wizeman* 04-02-2013 02:40 PM

Torres and maybe Clowe.

I would be very surprised if Torres was not moved here.

Clowe would be nice but that is the asking price?

Stonz 04-02-2013 02:40 PM

Thread title is misleading.

Gillman did not say "at least two more trades".

He said they'd like to make at least one more for sure, possibly two.

kammyBlazer* 04-02-2013 02:41 PM

Does anyone know if Wheeler is available? He adresses our needs perfectly. If the nucks are really going all in, then who cares, spend a ton to get him. No point in half-assing it

I heard it as saying they have two potential trades brewing...

Tact 04-02-2013 02:41 PM

Well, the Luongo trade and hopefully a top 6 winger. Pominville would be perfect.... did he and Roy play together for Buffalo?

Listen to the interview, canucks are going strong, aggressive, and are not close to being done.

You are right tho, but I made it on the fly.

I would love to see a trade for Wheeler (or other Jets forwards), not sure they're sellers though.

maybe they could turn into our own Richards/Carter combo!

Buffalo wont trade Ott.

Jtown 04-02-2013 02:42 PM

Clowe would be a nice get.

SiCKNESS 04-02-2013 02:43 PM

I have a feeling that Schroeder and our 1st could be on the move... maybe Lack too..
