Throw in the exclusive rights to negotiate with Jeff Finger before July 1st and we may have the makings of a deal.
Just to clarify though, when you say 'Komi' you're referring to the former allstar Mike Komisarak right? We don't want to get stuck with some plug!

I will really miss this thread when Luongo gets traded. I think we have gone through 13000 posts while arguing, "Who has leverage in a Luongo deal?" Boy that was fun for a fan of neither team.

I would like to see Luongo traded to Florida or Chicago first. In exchange, I would like to take back either Theodore or Crawford as part of the trades. Then If I were GMMG would I trade one of these two to TML. It is my humble opinion that after reading all the crap said by TML fans about Lou and his contract that they don't deserve his services. In addition by doing this flip there is a far greater chance for an increased asset package coming in return.

Unfortunately not so hot. The Leafs haven't really had all that solid goaltending since Eddie Belfour in his twilight years.


I thought Burke made a good decision to bring in Giguere as a veteran presence but his injuries caused that one to backfire. I also thought Jonas Gustavsson showed promise when brought in from Sweden but he has major consistency issues.

The Leafs' best goaltending in recent memory was Reimer's finish to the season before this past one.

This is actually one of things that has disappointed me thus far about Burke. For a guy who claims to build from the net out, goaltending has been lacking.

With Vancouver and Florida's recent trading history, it just seems so likely that the Panther's will be the team.

Same. Gillis and Tallon have a good relationship and with Markstrom's injury troubles and the Panthers likely wanting to take it slowly with him having Luongo in the fold seems like a good plan. If he does go to Florida my guess is that Nick Bjugstad is coming to Vancouver as part of any deal.

Crawford, Olesz, 3rd? Think about it, you can piss off a lot of Leaf fans by doing this deal.

You are correct sir. Allstar Mikey can be all yours for the low low one time only price of 1 Roberto Luongo!!

I still don't see why New Jersey is completely out of the discussion lately? Is it because of financial concerns and his contract? Or do you guys have some prospects that can take the starting role in a year from now?

If both of those don't apply, then why wouldn't they be gunning for Luongo?

Getting Luongo to mentor Markstrom over the next 4 years would be a very Tallon-esque move, and consistent with what he did last offseason - bring in vets for 4 to 5 years to mentor the Panthers' prospects. Very astute.
This isn't for 4-5 years, tho. He will have to contend with trading Luongo after that point (which IMO will be a bit difficult at that point), or paying him a whole lotta dough to back up his protégé.

Shhhh there aren't supposed to be more teams involved so the price is low.

You base this on a few fans who post in this forum as opposed to the entire TML fan base? Harsh!

There once was a goalie named Luongo
He couldn't be traded to Toronto
Leafs offered crap
Gillis went snap

and beat his head like a bongo.

Leafs 35th + Franson + '13 3rd rounder....take it or go somewhere else.

They will stop when people stop posting about this.

Until then... corny James Bond themed thread titles for all.

I'm really hoping that isn't the case.

If we run out of Bond films, I'm calling it quits and someone else can use a different series.

I disagree, I don't think it will be difficult at all. He may be an expensive backup for a season or two, or he could be waived, traded or even bought out (less likely). He may even retire.

He doesn't have an NMC. Lots of options and flexibility there.
