I'll take *any* top six forward on a cheap contract whether he's soft, can't do PK duty, produces at ES or on the power play. Preferably a playmaker.

There doesn't appear to be any activity with strombone1's twitter since the 14th. I guess he's too busy with training camp?

I'll take any top six forward who is playoff capable. Doesn't have to be a playoff maverick, just someone who has a tendency to step it up when the going gets tough.

I have a feeling there's another twist yet in this Luongo saga. If he's not traded before Saturday, one of the following WILL happen:

1. Luongo will have some great starts, and there will be about a debate about who should be #1.

2. Schneider will get hurt, killing any Luongo deal.

3. Luongo will get hurt, killing any Luongo deal.

It's the Canucks - you know it's coming.

To be honest, Lu looks very relaxed out there, he's not crushed by the weight of the city and its fan's expectations anymore. If the offers don't improve, hold him till the offers improve, and they will. I don't buy Reimer, Lindback or Crawford as legitimate options at #1, and I feel like at least one of the three is going to crumble.

I can see a Chicago offer as a good (and fair) fit if Crawford comes out of the gate cold.

Schneider/Lu split.

Likely Schneider start on Saturday, Lu on Sunday.

Vigneault intimated it will be a split this weekend. I would bet Schneids on Saturday vs. Anaheim, Lu on Sunday vs. Edmonton.

With Luongo's SO win over Schenider, plus his higher overall ranking in NHL 13... Trade Schenider.

I so want the Canucks to give the Oilers a dose of realty. Too bad it's the oilers first game and the Canucks on a 24 hour. Or maybe it'll be a good thing.

Perhaps GMMG has told him to shut up for a bit as he is about to be traded?

So Dreger is calling Bozak + Kadri + 2nd as being "too much" at least from the Leafs' perspective.

Aside from that though, I think I pretty much agree with what you're trying to say.
Just wondering do most fans feel like Schneider is better then Lou thus making him at the least a top 4 goalie ? Or do you guys want to trade Lou because Schneider has the potential to be better the Lou with a better contract?

Wasn't it just last week that's what the Leafs were offering and it wasn't enough for Gillis? Now it's being reported that's what we're asking? Which is it? Why do I even bother with speculation?

It's awful, worst package ever....if Tallon couldn't better that for an elite player that wants to be there he's dumb too.

I can't even keep up anymore. I thought that's what Toronto was offering and we wanted more. Seriously, just stop the Toronto talk. If they think Bozak and Kadri are too much that's laughable. We're complaining that it's not nearly enough. I hope MG seriously isn't asking for those two. No thanks.

Nothing about this "confirm" on twitter, nobody talk about it, or anything. I am not saying I don't believe you, but I don't rofl

Don't shoot the messanger, Dregs just said it on TV. The ironic thing is the panel thought those 3 assets may be too steep for the Leafs.

Dreger citing this as VAN's demand is asinine. What would be the hold up in that deal? Kadri?


I guess McCowan must be off on his Kadri + Gardiner demand...?
