My thoughts exactly. If these "rumours" hold any water, it shows the FLA has zero interest. If they did, the Leafs offer would have to be outstanding. Otherwise, Luongo would be FLA bound.

Do they want to beat that, is the question though.

I understand what you're trying to say.. but, a rumour cannot be confirmed real or fake. A rumour is a statement made that remains to be seen if true or not.

For example, there is a rumour going around that this guy said that there's a rumour Luongo is going to get dealt to the Leafs by tomorrow etc.

The only reason I'm skeptical is because no one else on this fourm heard it apparently?

And the OP (no offense OP) changed the thread title from "Tomorrow" to "W-E"(Weekend) and then changed it back to "Tomorrow".

Lol, I just want to know what Elliot Price actually said.

I never said Luongo was bad goalie, my opinion is my opinion if you don't like it then thats not my problem. Also going from vancouver to toronto is like going from heaven to hell. If you feel luongo had it rough in Vancouver just wait until something goes wrong for him in toronto.

Neat way to put it. Of course, you just just as easily say second worst in the division.

I disagree with this viewpoint. Vancouver is ten fold worse on their goaltenders from a fans viewpoint. Toronto is worse in regards to media IMO, but the fans in Toronto seem to be harsh on coaching and management more than players.

Honestly, this makes no sense, nor do I even care, just want to know if this Elliott guy actually said this.

Awesome! So we're down to arguing about rumours of rumours. Hopefully Luongo never gets traded, where else can we find this level of lunacy!

Unfortunatley for you, your opionion can be undermined with actual facts. That's how you usually lose arguments and look foolish. When one party presents opinions and the other party presents facts.

Price of 3 years ago, and Miller of last year can easily happen which would make Luongo the best goaltender in the division.

That being said, he could also be the worst if Rask and Anderson have a big year. But I doubt it seeing as Carlyle is going to jam up the hashmarks and try to lower the GA even at the cost of GF.

That being said, I'm really hoping Luongo goes to the Leafs because it makes the division that much more interesting and I'm all for exciting games!

a) I don't think it will actually happen.
b) If it does, Gardiner + 2nd for Luongo

I think Luongo is going to get a big return

I guess it's as good a year as any to get him. 48 games means he can play the bulk and (if he plays well) theoretically have more of an impact than he would in an 82 game season.

Or Kulemin + Kadri + Bozak makes a lot of sense.

Hopefully not Bozak. With the lack of NHL center talent the leafs currently have, we need are "#1" center. The trade would fill our goalie needs clearly, but would widen the hole at center.

If he does go hopefully Burke has something lined up that brings in a 1C.

What vet would the acquire that would keep him from being fired? Easy to say they should get someone else. The question is who is that magical nameless keeper

Hm. At šthis stageš of all 3 of their careers, on, say, a 2-year deal IŽd go with Roberto. I donŽt like Carey or RyanŽs playoff history.

no because their are rask and anderson behind him. He can easily overtake miller for number two, but i believe that if luongo comes to the northeast price is still the better goalie.

I didn't hear Elliot Price, but I have heard Millard and a couple of the other talking heads suggest a deal would be done as soon as possible. Really, Price repeating what others have said already doesn't add legitimacy. We all know it is a rumour, whether it comes true.... until then, enjoy the lunacy.

Price was unbelievable in the first series vs. Boston in their cup run. If not for Thomas' insanity Boston would have been out in 4. I can understand where you're coming from but stats don't always tell the entire story, as Carey has been excellent in playoff games.

Also Price played 2 AHL regular season games then went on to win the MVP in the calder playoffs.

Off topic on the Price thing, but Luongo has the chops and experience to be the best goalie in the division without a doubt in my mind.

I will be so happy is that happens.

Connolly = 0 Value to Toronto
Frattin = Potential Fringe 2nd/3rd line prospect
2nd Round Pick

That be sweet.
