I think Edmonton can safely be crossed off the list (TO too). Dubnyk just played against RL and looked really good in the win. And his contract is 66% of the cap hit and 20% of the term of the RL deal.

Kipper still is. Even though he's old and you'd have to expect he starts to slow down soon. Much like RL when he hits that age in 3 years

I am not actually all that excited, about the deal. What I don't understand is how it does calm things down from a media standpoint though? feel free to explain how the media will now let this go as has been said?

I love Kipper but I think Lou is much better. The Flames need something big and the organization doesn't know what a rebuild is so I could see them taking on Lou. Also I think the Red Wings will soon realize that Howard is overrated. I think you need to add the sharks in the mix because they are not afraid of making big moves, and adding Lou puts them back in the mix for a top spot in the West.

Seriously. The TOR media has had the smear campaign out since day one. McKenzie started it off with the Komisarek/cap dump garbage, and it went from there. They don't have a clue. Not a single one of them, be it McKenzie or Dreger or Cox. Not on this issue. TOR media understand that it's a hot topic but have taken the slant from a TOR perspective and ran with it because that's all they have to go on.


Under the Gillis regime, there have been no leaks. There is literally no insider information here. Even Gallagher, who has covered the team for 30+ years and who was/is a friend to Gillis _prior_ to his hiring, gets specs of information, if anything at all. He got the Hodgson thing, but beyond that, it's like Tinker Tailor over here. Mums the word. So creative media types have to dig so hard for just scraps, or make it up. Enter TOR media that has a mainline to TOR management (or connection in the past a la Shannon) and you have the perfect opportunity to push an agenda, whatever it is, to drum up interest or decrease it.


During the lockout, near the end, Kypreos said it best when he said that he was refusing to report anything further for he felt that he was being used. That's what is happening here. That's what Gillis is trying to point out. Information is getting to the TOR media circuit that doesn't include the VAN agenda at all, and they are pushing it hard. There's no balance. It's plain to see, and it's why Gillis reacted.

The TSN guys are not going to report anything unless they know it's true and isn't just repeating old news.

When Gillis makes a trade there usually is a quiet before the storm and only when the deal is done or very close to done is when the insiders are able to get any information about it.

Basically what I'm saying is that if the TSN guys start reporting on it then the deal will happen very quickly after that.

Wow...over react much? They were not saying it was the "only option". They said that because of injuries (Kesler/Booth) having to excellent goalies is a good thing....geez/

Doesn't this contradict what all Nuck's fans are saying?

In what world does this make any sense? In what way is Washington's situation any different than Vancouver's?
Your not comparing holtby or neuvirth to schneider are you ?

If it isnt this "drama" its another drama.

Come on guys lets use some common sense here. Is Gillis posturing? Probably, but hey guess what? So is Nonnis. Neither guy is a saint and both fan bases need to stop taking their GMs words as gospel! Every GM is capable of pulling a Holmgren!

He's not going to Edmonton or Calgary in any scenario, Gillis won't trade him within the division. He'd have to be nuts.

But comparing Luongo to Dubnyk will not come out in Dubnyk's favor in any scenario. Regardless of contract status. Dubnyk is the next Alex Auld in my opinion. Luongo at 33 hold the majority of goaltending records for 2 different NHL organizations.

I could see Edmonton trying to get Luongo. Not sure if they'd trade a #1 goalie to a divisional rival, but they have a deep prospect pool, some of them could easily be interesting to the Canucks.

The player they would be waiting to clear could be Shawn Horcoff.

And, point taken, but tell me how this whole hey does anyone know where lou going quesTions will be good for the Nucks? I hope they get a hockey trade for him, I sincerely do. Cup windows don't stay open forever and yours is closing. So if they get good value for him and bring a cup back to Canada great. However that a deal is in place has been stated publicly I fail to see how this helps the Nucks until it goes through.

I won't defend ANY GM's honesty...but how is Nonis posturing? He has said zilch about a Luongo trade...the TO media has pretty much been silent about it for a week or better.

So they should keep him until they're healthy, is that what you meant? Because it's not what was implied.

It really doesn't matter when, he'll be traded for a decent, not excellent, return at some point and it will raise some eyebrows around here. But that's going to happen with any Lu deal.

Hard to say why Gillis made those comments, but I won't keep arguing about something there is no concrete explanation for. All I can be sure of is that Gillis is acting in the best interests of the Canucks, and that's as much as I can ask.

Did you not hear McKenzie hear rumblings of this as far back as July, but didn't report it because he thought it had no legs?


Steve Simmons also said the exact same thing on air. That he heard about it earlier in the year.


They knew, but they didn't report it.


Oh, and it's well known Shannon got his Bozak + Kadri rumour from within TOR management offices.


You were saying?

maybe CHI has to waive Emery? I know it goes against the idea you don't trade him to a Western Conference rival, but CHI has to feel good about their team this year exc for G.

Agreed. Washington seems to be the best fit both in terms of need and the pieces to get a deal done. I'm hoping Holtby can't get it done.

I'm hoping Gillis is like most Canucks fans and would rather gouge out his eyes with a spoon then trade Luongo for Horcoff.
