So, where do you think Luongo will play next season?

Smells clean...ya know...without that moldy, stale, crappy smell that comes with 35+ pages of Nucks, Oilers, and Stars discussions.

Tampa or Toronto sound like the front runners.

If he thought the media pressure was bad in Vancouver, good luck in Toronto.

My thoughts exactly. If media pressure is the reason he wants to get out of Vancouver, he has lost his god damned mind if he thinks it will be better in Toronto.

I heard on TSN last night that if Luongo is traded to Toronto, Komisarek would be involved.

Yeah, really.

I don't think its the media pressure as to why he wants out, i just think that he sees the organization wants to go with young Cory and he doesn't want to pump any one's tires.

to me i can see him go to TBL they have some good young budding talent and he can enjoy his time.

Tho if he comes out and has a 1hr long special on tsn and takes his talents to south beach that would just be golden.

also if this went down i think it would be epic

I want Landeskog on this team.

How similar are him and Forsberg?

Landeskog is Mike Richards. Forsberg is Jeff Carter.

K, let's get both.

Seriously though. I think my crush on Landeskog has reached an unnatural level.

And then finally he got exposed by Boston in the Cup Finals later in the playoffs.
I think you're either remembering wrong, or seeing what you wanted to see instead of what was there. Remember, the only reason Luongo was playing for Canada was because of how the US blew up Brodeur. He might have been terrified, but had the OT gone the other way, no one would have been blaming Luongo, nor should they have.

As for that Chicago game 7, Chicago had that game won until Luongo decided to step up and keep his team in it. Remember all the jokes in that series? "Chicago leads the series 2-3." Luongo single handedly bailed his team out a number of times when everyone expected him to look like Fleury from this year's playoffs.

He is a total headcase, if you can get to him, he'll give up 5 goals a period. But when he manages to stay even keeled, he's one of the better goalies in the league.

I would love to see a Di Pietro - Luongo deal, but doubt Vancouver would be willing to do that. Just think though, 4th overall + the human IR list for Bobby Lu. Just imagine Mike Milbury being forced to talk about that trade and watching him squirm.

Here's an interesting read from Wired.com that documents a study that was done that apparently shows that wearing black means you get penalized 10% more in the NHL. an average of two minutes more per game than teams wearing white (or other lighter colors):

http://www.wired.com/playbook/2012/0...black-jerseys/

Maybe we should switch to wearing our white uniforms at home for a season and see if this helps keep us out of the box a little more.

I really like him too... But I don't think he'll ever develop into an elite player. Great guy, though; tons of character and leadership.

I do. I still think he's going to be considered the best player to come out of the 2011 draft when all is said and done. I just don't think he's going to be elite in the sense that he gets drafted early in fantasy drafts. I'm guessing he'll average Koivu-like numbers for his career, but still be one of the best in the game.

I'm not going to be getting on any Landeskog bandwagons until he shows he can keep his head up, and can make better decisions about hits along the boards. If he doesn't improve in both those categories, he's going to have a very short and painful career.

Taylor Hall's welcome to twitter tweet had the #pancakes hash tag besides. I guess it's nice to have the attention drawn away from his horrible season this year though.

Dustin Penner, like Ryan Malone, will be one of those guys you love to have at $3m on your 2nd or 3rd line at for half the games of the year and the other half he's a complete non-factor.

That was from the prospect forum.

They've been doing the Minny thing lately, so I thought I would start with Eddy, Torry, Monty
