Gillis runs a tight ship...he broke the news of the Edler re-signing himself on twitter.

I'd take Howard over Lu right now all things considered.

He mighty run a tight ship, but what about the other team. It is easy to keep quiet a resigning of your own player, but closing negotiations on a huge trade with another team is totally different.

JOKING!!!!!
But being scratched they are still part of roster. I am just wondering why the Canucks wanted to clear up that roster spot....

Well, there would be another team involved.

Also, I feel like it's going to be a random team, Colorado. Maybe something to do with Ryan O'reilly signing, total guess on my part.

How much chatter was there before the Booth trade? Before the Hodgson trade? Before the Edler signing? Before the Schnieder signing?

The Canucks are a very tight lipped organization under Gillis. Don't be surprised to not here much about the deal till it happens.

Upcoming UFA goaltenders at the end of this season:
Niklas Backstrom
Jimmy Howard
Jose Theodore
Evgeni Nabokov
Mike Smith

Luongo's value is behind all of theirs this offseason
No.

Not hate, I just don't really like either player, and would not be willing to move an all star caliber player for both, let alone either or.

Besides, I can say whatever I'd like in here, if you don't like it, get out of the Luongo thread.

If you don't like my assessment on the complete 180 degree turn happening in this thread, ignore me.

Don't want to be insensitive, but how about Minnesota considering Backstrom is UFA and Harding has been diagnosed with MS? Plausible? Don't know if Luongo would waive to go there though. Not sure what they have that we want either, I doubt they give up Granlund.

Gillis is just trying to up Luongo's trade value. By saying the trade is all but done , he thinks he is making others teams put forth their best offer.

Simple as that.
