Hes going no where.
Both Kadri and JVR have stepped up their games. Toronto has the 6th best G/G in the league right now.

Luongo is not playing well and leafs are not desparate for a goalie.
What is more likely is Miller is traded to tampa bay. And Luongo to Sabres.

He is, for all intensive purposes.

Bill Waters is a moron... No disrespect against Luongo but that's a contract most leaf fans (and hopefully leaf management) don't want apart of. It's a shame because he's still an excellent goalie. I would trade Grabovski for Luongo but not Lupul, we like like Lupul.

From an outside perspective, it seems like Lupul is a bit more valuable than Luongo. Stranger things have happened though. Toronto has been fairly good while missing Lupul most of the season; perhaps they think improving goaltending helps more.

Nonis just said today the Leafs aren't close to anything

http://www.torontosun.com/2013/03/27...talking-trades

so this isn't really a rumor. It's more like "Bill Watters thinks this would be pretty cool."


Neither side is going to be happy about this.

Lupul is needed. He is not untouchable but for Luongo? Can't see it happening.

Leafs have major interest in Kipper. If we go for a goalie we want a rental. Not a several year cap hit to a guy that may be on the downgrade come next season.

Not that he's untouchable just makes no sense to trade a player who succeeding and doing well

Very educated comment!

Take a look at what he's done as a leaf. He's been a leader for us, has been PPG through 100ish games, has been an AllStar, and took a discount to stay a leaf which he states he wants to be for a long time.

Heart and soul guy, who is a legit top liner/star

Kadri has. Ask any Leaf fan that watches consistently and they will tell you how JVR has played over the last 10 or so.

Well of course, anyone can be moved for the right price.



You're a Ducks fan? He's a lot better here than he was in So-Cal. Try watching him.

Did someone in this thread really say there's no a player on Vancouver they would trade Lupul for? Oy. I've seen it all...

For Vancouver...Well, we have one goal in our last two games. We could definitely use him.
Yes very much so.

Why wouldn't they trade his offense for elite goal tending

It's arguable that Luongo is a top-five goalie these days. Lupul is not a second liner.

Lupul has 92 points in 101 games (74 points in last 73 games dating back to last season) as a Maple Leaf. Just signed a long-term deal and has been recognized as a leader on the team (specifically to Kadri as per reports).

I don't see a situation where he's dealt for Luongo.

Lupul is the closest thing to a captain that we have, and he can play with any line and produce. Oh, and i dont want Luongo.

Although we've been good without him, we've been even better with him in the lineup and you can really notice the difference in our team when he's on the ice. He and Phaneuf are the leaders of the team and he seems to have chemistry with just about anyone in the lineup.

I can't see the leafs moving Lupul for anything but a crazyass overpayment.
