Roberto Luongo XXVI - Love me Lu (Admin Warning: Post 178)

Last thread ended with a lock saying "Until there is a big update with speculation, this is done" from ColePens.

As per Kevin Allen of USA today, the Panthers are holding up the trade because of Nick Bjugstad. So we finally have a name in what Vancouver is trying to get back from Florida.

What would it take to land Bjugstad for the Canucks?

And the title is the Beatles for now, unless anyone comes up with a better name

Usually at this time of the summer, general managers have the "gone fishing" sign posted.

But this has been a strange offseason because we are headed toward Aug. 1 and many GMs are still trolling for players or dealing with matters that will affect their team's competitiveness.

I agree.

Maybe he doesn't like puns?

I doubt Florida gives up Jugs for almost anyone. The organization and its fans are very high on him and seemingly see him as their future #1 C to play alongside Huberdeau.

OK, now I don't get it. I just thought it was a typo or something.

Anyway, does the article contain anything new? I literally did stop reading because it started with some nonsense over how Doan would be a nice fit in four different rosters. Because, you know, I'm sure he'd be a nice fit wherever teams can afford him. It's not rocket science.

Gillis is not getting Bjugstad for just Luongo.

If that's what's holding the deal up, then forget it.

Well barring our usual "deal killers", what would you want added? Most fans can guess at what we consider expendable, but in the same frame of mind, our Keslers, Sedins, Edlers and Schneiders are off the table, and we'd need more then prospects for contributors like Burrows, Higgins, Hansen, Bieksa and Hamhuis....and there goes our whole roster off the table.

I love hfboards logic - proven NHL star isn't worth more than a prospect.

I gotta take a break from this site.

the Panthers are so weak up the middle why would we trade the first legitimate potential 1C this organization has ever had? I'd much rather give you guys howden and more than to take bjugstad.

I'm not objecting to that.

Howden+ instead of Bjustad?

Let's hear the +.

ellerby, santorelli, mathias.

And one of upshall or Kopecky. To even out salary.

Not very exciting. I know.

So i guess you was among the one saying Luongo worth more than (Stamkos or Doughty) + Brown back in 2008!

.
Proven or not doesnt really matter, what matter is not the past, but the expectation we have for a player.

I would rather have a unproven player i expect to play like a star, than a proven star i expect to decline and be average.

How much are Kopecky and Upshall getting paid (cap hit).

Because the two of them with Ellerby and Howdon isn't bad.

All that?...Quantity over quality I suppose...Ellerby, Howden, Upshall if he's willing, Kopeck if he isn't. We're right back to it.

FYI, the Columbus thread has Brassard, Savard, Mason and Boll as their offer.

No idea what the Toronto fans have thrown together.

We were still discussing matters with Chicago.

Chicago would have top give us Bolland+ or a top 6 forward for Luongo. Gillis wouldn't give Chicago all their core members plus Luongo to play against us for 5+ years unless we get something significant back.

Just for these potential thread titles, I hope this series of threads goes on a bit longer as much as I'd rather not wait for Luongo to be traded, just end the drama already. Some good ones in there.

It's a matter of trading our top C prospect (where we are pretty weak currently) for a goalie which we do not need at all. Especially not for 5+ years with Markstrom waiting in the wings.

Living easy, living free
Season ticket to the Rogers Arena
Asking nothing, leave me be
Catching everything in my glove
Don't need reason, don't need rhyme
Ain't nothing I would rather do
Going down, party time
My friends are gonna be there too

I'm on the highway to Luuuuuuuu
I'm on the highway to Luuuuuuuu
I'm on the highway to Luuuuuuuu
I'm on the highway to Luuuuuuuu

No ref calls, coach's timeouts
Nobody's gonna score on me
Like a Byfuglien, gonna get fatter
Nobody's gonna mess me 'round
Hey Mama, payed my dues
Playing in a rocking team
Hey Vancouver, look at me
I'm on my way to the Stanley Cup

I'm on the highway to Luuuuuuuu
(Can't score on me)
And I'm going down, all the way down
I'm on the highway to Luuuuuuuu
