Nope. My sources are actually pretty good. I have the Isles beat reporter stating unequivocally that the Isles are not having conversations with Nucks.

There have been other reasonable sources too. A few weeks back, there was a column in the VCR Sun about the value of buyouts and the author was clear that the Isles were not interested.

I do trust all that a lot more than chatter on fan enthusiast sites, even with a fanbase as informed as the Nucks have.

McKenzie stated the next day that he was talking about what he believed COULD happen one day down the road and that there was nothing ongoing at the present time.

The podcast is still up on TSN's site if you would care to have a listen.


And, you still haven't told me what all these "sources" you have are, now that McKenzie is apparently not himself saying anything is happening.

I think you still hope that you're going to get nice return for Luongo. In all likelihood, he is going to get bought out or traded in a swap of bad contracts, and you're going to get jack in return. I believe that is why you are clinging to this stuff, with all due respect.

I will state unequivocally that he will not be an Islander. I will also state unequivocally that there is zero substance to any of that stuff, and it also basically manufactured by Nuck fans and the media.

Feel free to bump this and throw it in my face if I am wrong. I often am....
