Gardiner, Rielly and our first are going nowhere. If Gillis wants one of them he's going to have to add significant pieces along with Luongo.
How am I twisting anything? He didn't specify Jake himself. He was questioned on whether he fell into a group of building blocks. I think he values Rielly higher, which he should.

I still stand by my feeling that Luongo won't be traded to Toronto. We aren't good trading partners. What we need, you either don't have, you overvalue, or you won't trade. If you are trading for Luongo, it's because you want to win now, so you would have to think players in your top six would be off the table completely. What's left of value to Vancouver? Gardiner is likely a third pairing D on Vancouver right now and Kadri would still be in a fight to make the team even with Kesler injured. What interest would Vancouver seriously have beyond Rielly, Gardiner, Kadri and the first overall? The same reason that Leafs fans don't want them traded makes them the most sought after. There really isn't much left after that in your organization that meets our needs.

Nope, Nonis actually only mentioned Rielly. It was the hockey central crew that brought up Gardiner.

Lu not only brings great goaltending to TO but it will help them get free agents as well. Leafs havent got a good free agent in years. When Richards was looking for a team, was he going to pick the Rangers and Lundquist or the Leafs and Reimer??? Good goaltending will change the teams confidence and free agents opinions. I watched almost every Canucks game last year and since January they played horrible but their goaltending stole them enough games to win the Presidents. I think Leaf fans would be blown away if they actually got someone that could stop the puck.

I wish people would stop saying pick 6-14 are way more valuable because based on what was reported the odds haven't changed. Yes 14th last can win the lottery but the odds are still only 0.5%.

8th place historically has been the highest to ever win the lottery.

25.0% - Columbus Blue Jackets - 65 points
18.8% - Edmonton Oilers - 74 points
14.2% - Montreal Canadiens - 78 points
10.7% - New York Islanders - 79 points
8.1% - Toronto Maple Leafs - 80 points
6.2% - Anaheim Ducks - 80 points
4.7% - Minnesota Wild - 81 points
3.6% - Carolina Hurricanes - 82 points
2.7% - Winnipeg Jets - 84 points
2.1% - Tampa Bay Lightning - 84 points
1.5% - Washington Capitals (from Colorado) - 88 points
1.1% - Buffalo Sabres - 89 points
0.8% - Dallas Stars - 89 points
0.5% - Calgary Flames - 90 points

the recent proposals from the leaf sides have been ridiculous serious or not. Gardiner for a 1st, Kassian, & Luongo, and some Leaf posters rejecting that offer - wow! This is absolutely ludicrous. Imagine if Toronto & Vancouver HF posters were responsible for negotiating the new CBA. We would never be able to watch a NHL game ever again.

Part of me looks at the whole situation like this..

Assume Vancouver fans had not run Luongo out of town.. Or assume we just decided to give him another chance based on circumstances.. We would have traded Cory for a major piece, and Luongo would still be our 'elite franchise goaltender'

That said, struggling teams like Toronto have a chance to get would could still be Vancouvers #1 Goalie for relatively peanuts.

Everyone who saw/listened to that interview knows Gardiner wasn't mentioned until prodded by Kypper.

MLSE and its fans should decide if they would be better with 3-5 years of Luongo or next 5-10 years of Gardiner, Reilly & Kadri?

Its pretty much a no brainer.

I don't blame him. This has been the most annoying of discussions. I got booted for the first time ever because of them...and I have been here since 1998. Seriously. These threads suck.

We'd get all 3?! Wow that's awesome!


Why not box? 3-5 short term success, and have Rielly+Kadri be the future, or any combo of that. etc

Yup. 100% agree. Its gotten to me at times (yesterday a good example but then again that one guy WAS trolling about van/bos)

Thats why I was trying so hard to get them closed down when during the lockout when no deal could get done & we hadn't heard a thing in months. All leaving it open did was make 2 fan bases (which already didn't like each other) hate each other even more & make good sensible posters angry & bitter towards each other to the point that having a decent discussion about a deal is IMPOSSIBLE.


Van/Tor make TERRIBLE trading partners. Its fitting a circular peg into a square hole.

To be fair, the proposals are all over the map with some outliers on both sides. Trying to look at it somewhat objectively here are my thoughts:
1. The Leafs appear to be the front runners but given Gillis' and the Canucks' past trades with Florida, I think that Florida could be the team. Gillis doesn't usually leak info about trades so I suspect that any leaks of a so-called agree to deal with Toronto ar coming from Toronto.
2. If the sort of agreed to deal was Bozak, Kadri and a second then I believe the deal would have been done months ago. I think Gillis is trying to get more and will only fall back on that if there is nothing else out there.
3. Luongo's value is tough to guage because only a few teams can take the financial risk on the contract and his age is a factor. Having said that, top goalies like him rarely hit the market and for a cash rich team like the Leafs I think the risk is fairly manageable although obviously not negligent.

All in all, right now I feel like the SNL skit 'Lowered Expectations'.
I've resigned myself to a fairly modest return but will be pleasantly surprised if my blind date turns out to be Scarlett Johansson errr...I mean Jake Gardiner or a high Florida prospect rather than Tyler Bozak. On the other hand after a few beers....

Of course it's a no brainer, but you aren't exactly being fair here

No Canuck fans (even the more crazy ones) have asked for Gardiner, Kadri and Reilly

Although I'm not asking for Gardiner, Leafs with Luongo are better than the leafs with Gardiner imo and that is for sure true with Kadri.

I should have added "either" of but I guess it was implied by what I said

Or could it be because he won the cup with Torterella when he played on the Lightning?

In 4 or 5 years, when Roberto is 38-39 and struggling to maintain his level of play and Nazem Kadri is putting up sixty point seasons, yes, Toronto would be better long term with Nazem Kadri.

No doubt that helps but I'm 100% certain B. Richards isn't SO short sighted to think that Torts would be around for the long haul... he is a NHL coach in the biggest city in the World. He can't hide from the pressures of being in NYR if they falter.
