An update on the Luongo sweepstakes. According to our sources Vancouver has recieved 2 MAJOR offers and is waiting to hear back from one GM to finalize a deal. A deal could be reached within the next 24 hours so stay tuned
The Vancouver Canucks have made a blockbuster trade. The Canucks have traded goaltender Roberto Luongo center Manny Malhotra and winger Mason Raymond for winger Marian Hossa and center Dave Bolland. The Canucks issued a statement regarding the trade:
We are very pleased to add Marian and Dave to our team. We felt we had enough depth in net with Schneider and Lack that we could afford moving Roberto to upgrade some weaknesses in other areas. We felt we got 2 key pieces to add to the team to help us contend for the Stanley cup. In Bolland we got a player who can replace Malhotra's leadership and grit on the 3rd line and in Hossa we feel we have acquired an all star winger to play alongside the Sedins.
The trade of course is pending any deal in real life before the game is out
The Toronto Maple Leafs announce that they have traded LW Clarke MacArthur to the Vancouver Canucks in exchange for RW Jannik Hansen.
We would really like to see what Jannik can do for us along side someone like Matthew Lombardi as they are both tremendous skaters. We would also like to see what he can do for us in a top 6 role playing with someone like Mikhail Grabovski.
On the Block:
None, but you can make offers for people.
Cheap Veteran RW
