Boom, here's the answer.

being interested might not be a rumor. Being interested also doesn't mean you get jack for Luongo.

Like I said, I'm heavily interested in Luongo after you buy him out.

Doesn't mean they are going to get him. Doesn't necessarily mean they'll make an offer. But they've inquired. Could buy out Bryz in June.

Asking a team what they want for a player then saying no and then ending talks doesn't mean they are negotiating a deal.

were you ever interested in high end shoes and walked in the store expecting them to give away the shoes you need for A BAG OF PUCKS?

didnt think so.

It's been out there for a while that Gillis is holding out and wants a hockey deal. I'm sure your GM is aware of that.

LOL...when those shoes are last years model and taking up valuable shelf space they end up in the clearance bin.

Anytime you want to trade Schneider instead we can talk about some value coming your way.

We don't need Luongo

And most shoes don't barter their goods for more goods

And our GM will back down when he gets asked for pieces he didnt want to part with for Bobby Ryan or Shea Weber.

There's no way Luongo comes to Philly unless we find someone to pay enough for Bryz to cover what we give for Lu. Our prospect pool is still pretty dry, so trading draft picks isn't ideal. Roster players higher than the 3rd line are in short supply here too, and we just cannot give up any defenders.

I'm not opposed to it happening. It's not like Bryz is any better in the post season than Luongo. Vancouver deals with any cap penalty if he retires, and if we trade Bryz away we only have one year of him so our cap penalty shouldn't be too bad, unless I've got the rule wrong.

I just don't think it will happen. Toronto is probably willing to pay more than Philly. And if he gets injured and decides not to retire, we get lumbered with his cap hit in the offseasons...that would be annoying.

FWIW, Sam Carchidi has tweeted that there is no truth to the Luongo rumors, according to a "reliable source".

I think he's going to Toronto 90% unless Flyers dish out big time.

This could be leaked by Gillis just to raise the price given the speculations we heard over Burke's firing.

Would a deal where Bryz comes the other way (to be bought out at the end of the season) work for Philly?

Agreed. And I don't think Philly has sufficient reason to dish out big time.

if it's a rumor about a defensemen, i'll believe the rumor because it makes sense, plus if they are giving up alot of luongo, they are probably hurting themselves more because it's too much to give up for him unless it's a goalie swap.

it does if your holmgren. you want to preserve value for bryz and if bobby lu is traded it means there a chance you can get value for him instead of buying him out.

grossman is a salary for salry deal which makes sense because the flyers are putting alot into one position.

schenn is the offer that will be refused so it keeps luongos value from dropping too low
