Would make sense as to why Frattin is a healthy scratch tonight for the Marlies. I won't believe till someone more qualified tweets it though

If that's the deal, I'm fine with it as a Leaf fan. I'm gonna miss Matt Frattin though, dude is just a beast. He'll be dynamite in the Canucks top six. Put him up with the Sedins or on the right side with Booth and Kesler.. damn.

edit: thought you were being serious Cyris haha.

Funny because everything we hear is that CBA won't be finalized until Saturday. That is a terrible return for Luongo. I'd rather the Canucks hang onto him. Has to be a joke

Even though it probably is BS, I couldn't pass up the opportunity to use this clip.

If you think that's a terrible return, you need to severely temper your expectations.

You're right, Bjugstad is vital to the Panthers' centre depth. What about a forward like Flash or Versteeg + non-Bjugstad prospect?

If that is the deal the Canucks fans should be happy as they got more than I thought they would.

Frattin is a good player and Bozak should be a solid bottom six forward for them with offensive upside.

I won't mind the deal from Toronto's perspective but I hate giving up on Frattin.

Panthers have scoring issues. Under no circumstances are the panthers trading scoring for goaltending. We have discussed this multiple times.

It would be hilarious if it was true. Months of speculating by hundreds of pundits and annalists and the trade is broken by a random nobody.

With such respectable and professional tweets as;

"@16DarcyTucker calls Radulov & Kostitsyn idiots for curfew break. Wonder what he called brother-in-law Shane for sleeping w team-mates wife?"

"Fifa investigate #CanWNT for comments made after semi-final screwjob vs USA. Should investigate corrupt Norwegian ***** referee Pederson."

and

"To all who misconstrue criticism of Burke's rebuild as Anti-TML: Should they win tonight's lottery I will post a picture in #Leafs Lingerie."

I'm sure we can all assume that she has inside connections with Leafs upper management, and that this source is totally legit.

I hear camp is supposed to start saturday, I would think the CBA must be ratified before that.

TSN just went over how Roberto Luongo's contract will effect Vancouver in the team he's traded to if he retires early. If its true, Luongo's value is WAY down. Vancouver would get hurt badly but so would the other team. His contract is worse than it was in the old CBA. Those retirement years are a problem. I don't want my Panthers anywhere near him.
