Yeah, he's still in South Florida. In the Luongo video on TSN.ca you can tell it's the local rink where the panthers practice.

He's a ****ing awesome goalie.

Why the hell would the Vancouver ownership buy Luo out for $30+M when they could trade him away for nothing or throw him on waivers? Lawton just proved that he IS the completed "total bust" package. Unbelievable that there are now some who see that as a viable option for Vancouver. You can tell hockey has been gone far too long. Too many idiots have had nothing to talk about.

I'm not suggesting Connolly straight up for Luongo, nor am I trying to 'offload' Connolly, I'm just saying Connolly is a much better fit in Vancouver than Bozak.

I'd do:
Connolly
Colborne
Franson

Luongo
Ballard

Depending on some details about the new CBA

Id take Daigle over Lawton. Both flops. Lawton more so, although not by much.

We dont. We will have less than that after we sign a couple guys like Franson and Ranger but still we dont need any cap relief. We also dont need to trade a player with a longer contract to be bought out as we can easily afford to do it ourselves.

If you guys want a guy like Connolly we would be happy to move him but taking him doesnt add any value to the trade.

A person who was a general manager in the NHL seems to think Roberto will be bought out rather than traded. His opinion holds more weight than any poster in here.

Kulemin's value is at his lowest. He'll bang in (pro rated) 20 this year (whats that then 15?)


Kadri is a wild card. Could go either way.


You have to trade something to get something though so we will see. I don't care about Lu's salary its not my money, and you don't get a top ten goalie for Mike Komisarek.

Kulemin is an absolute no-go from me. I would walk away if Vancouver insisted.

Well if Brian Lawton said it I guess it has to be taken for fact. Luongo will be bought out, Nucks get nothing, and a parade will be had in Lawton's name.

To me, Connolly makes too much sense.

Super expendable from a leafs pov. Cheap to acquire but fills holes on Vans roster.

Kadri to me is a player who holds value but is also fairly expendable from the leafs POV. (Would become our most skilled prospect)

Too much value going to Vancouver, although Connolly not so much, but Nikolai Kulemin fits right in with Randy Carlyle's style of play. Regardless, that is too much depth leaving Toronto. Never going to happen.

Its more of a "buy low" on Connolly than pay a premium for Bozak.

I sorta value him the way I would a 3rd round pick.

That is just absurd. Do you even believe half the stuff you post?
