If, for whatever strange reason, we HAVE to trade Markov, Hodgson needs to be included in the trade. But then this blog is not about a rumor. It's about who teams are interested in.....So let's start a blog saying how the Habs are interested in Ovechkin.

If they want the guy who is arguably the best d-man in the NHL, especially for the salary he gets and his age. They'll have to throw everything but the kitchen sink our way. Marky Mark finished above Lidstrom, Niedermayer, Rafalski and Boyle in points last year. And he's just 30. All the other players just mentioned are 39, 35, 35 and 33 respectively and all played on much, much better teams.

If they want Markov, I'm afraid that Vancouver simply doesn't have the assets (save for goaltender) to pay for it. Hodgson? Another small center? Forget it. Edler? Half the points Markov gets. Their 1st round pick isn't going to be low, and in a bad draft year. We couldn't take the salaries of the Sedins, and we already have our own #1 goalie.

It simply doesn't make any sense. Unless Bob decides to pull another trade a-la Ribeiro.

this exactly what I feel, there is no reason to pull a deal with the Canucks when we are looking for a big Centre

I want to win the lotto but is it going to happen? What team wouldn't want Markov? We didn't give Markov for Lecavalier.

if the canucks want markov, the discussion prolly died right there. Obviously, the habs need a d-man back if they trade their #1 d-man, and the canucks d-man with the highest value is prolly edler, but he has not proven to be a consistent #1 guy just yet.

It just doesnt make sense unless andrei asked for a trade.

Steve Bernier would be fairly cheap and could be a nice project for us on the top two lines...

We have a Steve Bernier and his name is Guillaume Latendresse. Bernier can barely crack the Canucks Top 6.

I usually don't overrate our players, but for Markov, I don't think it'd be far-fetched to say he's worth at least these 3 players +, let alone adding Pleks to the mix...

I wouldn't trade Markov for the entire Canucks team. Please don't do something stupid Gainey.

The guy i want the most on the Canucks is Burrows but i doubt that he's on the trade block and i certainly wouldn't trade Markov for him if he was the centerpiece of the deal.

Vancouver does have the assets to acquire Markov but it would take a gross overpayment for them to land Markov (something like Hodgson + Edler + ???) and i doubt they want to do that.

Other than that i don't really see the Canuvks as an ideal trade partner for the Habs so this rumor is weird and likely bogus.

Just out of curiosity, what threshold would you guys put for Markov? I'd let him go for a Getzlaf, Carter, Backstrom or Toews.

Personal life
Roberto Luongo was born to Lina and Antonio in Montreal, Quebec.[43] His father is an Italian immigrant, and his mother is first generation Italian/Canadian. Luongo grew up in St. Leonard, Quebec, a borough of Montreal well-known as being home to many people of Italian ancestry (not to be confused with the city's Little Italy); living four blocks away from him was Martin Brodeur, who would become the goaltender for the New Jersey Devils.[43] Luongo speaks fluent English, French and Italian. Luongo began playing hockey at the age of eight, first as a forward before switching to goaltender. He also played soccer before committing to hockey full time. His younger brothers, Leo and Fabio, are also goaltenders. Hall of Famer, Grant Fuhr has been cited as his inspiration growing up.[9][44]

Luongo lives with his wife, Gina, and his daughter, Gabriella, in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, during the off-season.[45] Although he was chosen as the starting goaltender for the 2008 NHL All-Star Game, he chose not to attend in order to be with his pregnant wife. Gabriella was born a couple months later, on March 27, 2008.[46]
