Any deal with the Leafs would have to return their 1st next year, right. I saw some Leaf fans in the other threads saying that TOR will absolutely not give that up, is that hedging that they will be awful again next year? I have to think that gaining Lu should, barring major injuries to key players, guarantee playoffs, thus making the 1st a later one. If the Leafs are worried they might miss out on Mackinnon or Jones, they should not be thinking about getting Lu, because there are bigger fish to fry.

Spit out my drink at "blood type to be Ragu"...well played Mauer, well played...

I think it's nice that people pay attention to a guy who apparently needs.

Paul Gaustad, Mike Fisher and Semyon Varlamov all returned a 1st round pick. A team might not want to pay that price, but clearly Luongo is a more valuable player than any of those 3. Term of contract does not diminish that with any real significance.

Why would a first round pick in a strong draft be included on a guy with a lifetime contract? If Luongo was an upcomming free agent, sure I'd agree, but his contract does nothing but diminish his value.

Here's something else for everyone to shake their heads at. I've added more detail to H0MER's observation.

Two hours ago, SamJam99 posted this on his twitter page:

Luongo looks like he's on his way out soon.. the massive poster of him at Gate 16 at @RogersArena has been taken down. http://pic.twitter.com/Vp8Dwoiw

Here's an image of Rogers Arena from October 2010. Gate 16 is clearly visible. There never was a poster of Luongo at that location.



As General Motors Place:



The poster is on the other side of the building, past Gate 3 and adjacent to Gate 10.



1:22 of this video shows where the poster is:



This was taken in May 2011. This is where the poster should be.

I think for both sides dealing the 1st makes no sense.

If its top-5 protected it could be anywhere from #6-35 overall .... thats a big discrepancy in value for both sides.

I would rather just get something like Colborne or Ashton where we know exactly what were getting.

Toronto
Roberto Luongo

Vancouver
Tim Connolly
Nazem Kadri
Carter Ashton

I have no doubt that Vancouver should get this kind of return from Burke, but he just won't have any of it.

I think his recent interviews (especially the one today from the fan590) say all that needs to be said here. Burke will go into camp with Reimer Scrivens and will open with them if he has to. Unless Gillis drastically reduces his price, that's how it's going to stay.

I doubt the story is much different in Florida too. They have capable goaltending already and have their goalies locked up already. There has to be an incentive to make a deal (as in a steal).

Needless to say we're going to run out of Bond movies before Luongo is moved in my honest opinion. This one is going to go on all summer, someone is going to flinch and I know it's not going to be Burke and doubt Tallon has any reason to either.
