Every year TSN builds up the deadline around a big name player or two. This year it's Luongo, it's going to be their main story all day so people watch while nothing happens.

This is all hype/promoting a show.

Remember 6 months ago when Gillis said they had "a deal in principle" remeber those times? fun times huh. More lock out fodder to boost ratings.

Can't wait until April 4th so we can go at least a few months without hearing his name.

I'm Kesler would be ecstatic having the third line centre making more than him.

I'll admit I wanted him badly during the offseason as a Leaf. Now...not so much. Even for Grabovski+Scrivens i'd think while it's not too much to give up, is it even worth it?

I think he meant he had a deal with his principal from school in a fantasy league.

Schneider has a back-up making more than him.

Ive watched a lot of Leafs games this year, probably half of them. I haven't noticed a need to bring in a goalie with 9 years left on his contract. It seems like the Leafs would be better off adding a top 4 d-man than going for Luongo.

This isn't TSN generating **** to boost their ratings. These are quotes from Lawrence Gilman. The Vancouver Canucks assistant general manager.

This is legit.

This is as legit a source as it gets. The source is Gilman himself.

On that note: Still not expecting a move by the deadline.
We need depth players. Luongo is our most valuable/expendable asset.

I would hope MG is talking to other teams leading up to the deadline.

As legit as the alleged deal made earlier in the year with the team acquiring Luongo just having to make a roster move? (still not sure if Gillis was misquoted or not as pointed out before)

And just so we're all clear, "kicking tires" a lot of the time really has just meant a call asking if 'x' player is available. So just because they're passed that phase doesn't mean a whole heck of a lot for sure. It's possible there is a deal to be made and negotiations are truly happening, but we don't know.

this deserves some love.

Toronto/TBay would have to be the obvious front runners, no?
