It's come to this ? We have to kill our rebuild because Luongo is the only goalie we will ever get. So now we should pay whatever Canuck fans feel is right ?

Getting sad. We are rebuilding, we have a ton of young goalies who might be NHL starters. We don't have to trade for Luongo especially if it kills all the youth we aquired from our years of suffering.

Canuck fans need to grasp your GM wants to trade Luongo more than other teams want him. We know you all tell yourselves " we can go with both of them " overlooking all the evidence that Luongo wants to move on and that he would be disrupitive to your team to keep around.

You will not get market value for his talent because

1. He wants a trade

2. His contract's implictions may be terrible

3. There are not a lot of teams looking to add a goalie at that price with a steep trade price.

This is getting tiresome. Many of you guys never look at the other teams situation or needs and just worry about trying to squeeze maximum value from an asset that has negatives you choose to ignore.

"You should give us all the young guys you aquired in the last five years worth having and next years first" overlooking that it would kill the team in question ?

But who cares ? We all know trades always go the way the team who has the player wanting to be traded wants them to right ? CBJ is still laughing at how they fleeced NYR on Nash...oh wait...
