To recap, Gillis and Burke are believed to have had discussions regarding Luongo, but Gillis will apparently have to lower his asking price further. If the Leafs move Bozak they risk leaving themselves thinner at center than they currently are, though there’s talk of moving left wing James van Riemsdyk to center, a position he hasn’t played in years. Still, if they want Luongo, it might take Bozak as part of the return, given the Canucks own concerns at center, especially with Ryan Kesler still recovering from off-season surgeries.Of course, as noted, the next CBA could also play a significant part in any trade.

While it doesn’t appear as though there’s a “done deal” (even Shannon seemed to back away a bit by saying the deal is contingent upon a new CBA), it does seem the possibility exists, provided Luongo is willing to waive his “no-trade” clause to go to Toronto.
He's far from making stuff up.


Desjardins estimates that about 40% of the game is captured by Corsi analysis.
