That was me, but it just doesn't make sense with Varlamov. It does make sense in that we need another C... just as long as Papa O'Reilly doesn't start pounding on Gillis's door when Ryan is relegated to the third line.

[QUOTE=Kesler is Bestler;58066757]Ok so judging by his quote... its not Philly TO or Florida.

Atlantic
New Jersey Devils - Nope
New York Islanders - Nope

Northeast
Ottawa Senators - Nope

Central
Chicago Blackhawks - Nope
Columbus Blue Jackets - Nope

Northwest
Edmonton Oilers - Nope

Pacific
Anaheim Ducks - Nope
Dallas Stars - Nope
San Jose Sharks - Nope

Out of the teams you listed I wonder if any of these could be potentially interested. How happy is Anaheim with Hiller, San Jose with Neimi, Dallas with Lehtonen, and Ottawa with Anderson. All of these are decent goalies but I wonder if they would be interested in an upgrade? The other ones I think may be in the running are the Oilers and Blackhawks who would probably be interested but would require an overpayment. Even though Columbus and the Islanders are bottom feeders they might be interested it would come down to Luongo's interest in those teams. And finally I wonder if New Jersey would have any interest? Brodeur has to be close to retirement...

These are just me throwing out more options.

Paul Stastny in a three-way trade, maybe?

Hmm...probably not with the ROR situation.

No team in the division, none which is up to cap and none who got excellent goaltending. But on the other hand it might be a three-way so it is really hard to speculate. We can be sure that Lou does not end up in NW at least.

If the deal was anything close to what Gillis wants it would probably be done.

Benn is a hybrid playmaking LW/C who is going to be better than Kesler.

FLA/NYI/CBJ/NJ in the mix would be my guess.

After "meh" games from both goalies, the media actually calmed down for the first time in like 2 years about our "goaltending problem". I doubt he takes that first opportunity to stir things up again, but Girris does work in mysterious ways..

I think Luongo will go to Tampa or Washington personally, with the balance tipping slightly to Washington, just because I think they want to win now.

If you read the quote, he says it's pending due to the other team having to make a move first.

Bryzgalov is the only obvious candidate. Philadelphia hasn't been mentioned other than a brief one or two day period, so I could see them fitting the description. The Flyers aren't going to move Couturier for Luongo. Schneider? Maybe, but not a goaltender that's getting on in age and has a somewhat dubious contract. Voracek would fit this team like a glove. Big, playmaking winger that could really complement Kesler and Booth on the second line.

From the other quotes about Gillis wanting to give youngsters a chance next year, I think he has faith that Schroeder can fill the third line void long-term. Gaunce isn't likely to be ready and we're not exactly rich with young centres. I hope the kid impresses in the next month or so.

Not happening.

Please take Robidas, though.

*sorry to be here, the title caught my eye and then I saw this*

Oh, and if you put Bryz and MAF on that list, Lehtonen belongs there too. I'm not even sure I'd consider Luongo an upgrade, to be honest (not trying to start anything here). We won't be after Luongo at all regardless.

Well that's one way to shut me down quick. I'd love if our ownership was willing to eat the Bryz contract in a buyout if we got the pieces we want coming back the other way. Get the Philly Owner to pressure the GM into something?

Funny, I was just starting to reconsider my inclusion of Lehtonen before I read your post. No need to apologize for being here if you want to contribute.

Ed Snider is the type of guy who would sign off on a $30M cheque just to get rid of Bryzgalov without even thinking about it. I wouldn't be surprised if Philly is the team at all.

Gillis also said he wasn't willing to take a bad contract back, so I think we can rule out taking Bryzy back unless they're paying out the wazoo with young, ELC players. Ed Snider is amongst the wealthiest owners in North American sports, so I don't think buying out Bryzgalov's contract in the summer is the end of the world for him, particularly if they replace him with a proven commodity like Luongo. The odd game Luongo gets lit up in the playoffs will be like ol' times in Philadelphia and their team reacts way better in those situations than ours. See: last year's first round performances against Pittsburgh. They just try to outscore their problems, but with Lu they wouldn't need to do that all that often. He'd feel insulated, I imagine, with their scoring prowess.

Edit: With the likelihood of a massive realignment in the near future, I don't know how much stock Gillis puts into divisions and conferences. Particularly the latter. Chicago and Detroit could be in a different conference. He'll have a pretty good idea of what's likely to happen with realignment too.
