Gillis said Luongo had refused to waive sometime in the summer in his press conference.

And Luongo completely denied that.

After seeing that, you can see how Gillis is thoroughly classless. Way to throw the guy under the bus to deflect any criticism from yourself. And then he goes on and says that Luongo doesn't feel as badly as he sounds.

The guy has no integrity. I can see why they like him in Vancouver.

As the Leafs were the only team in the running; the fact that they were expected to give anything up of substance is ludicrous. Why would Nonis bid against himself to drive up the price?

Their treatment of players speaks volumes. First it was Hodgson, now Luongo. I look forward to see who else they destroy in the process.

Hard not to believe Luongo over Gillis considering his character - I think Gillis is full of ****.

You really don't need to venture anywhere else but the Leafs' boredz for delusional, dumba$$ comments.

Every thread has their fair share of 'tards.

Although I do find it funny how much they hate that Dreger is Nonis' second cousin, four times removed, two times added back.

Yeah, I saw your now second, most recent post over there (at like 12:25). Believe me when I tell you not to waste your time arguing with the guy you quoted regarding our goalies. He thinks Reimer and Scrivens are slightly above garbage, and that they are doomed to fail, regardless of their current play.

Also, are we supposed to sympathize with poor BobbyLou? "My contract sucks"...what an idiot. Are athletes really this dumb?

I actually hate Gillis even more after this PC. The guy actually threw Luongo under the bus and basically told the media how he really feels.

Just trade him instead of being ignorant.

It sucks to him because he can't be moved.Thats why and why can't we sympathize with him?He wants to play and wants to move, thats hardly anything to crucify him for

TEAM 1040 was gold this morning here in Vancouver. Roasting Nonis for not wanting to take Luongo without straight up cash involved. So delusional.

Would have liked to seen Luongo on the Leafs, but to take that contract, salary hit on for how many more years? Plus it's his 34th birthday today, how many more years of being an actual starter does he have 2 or 3?

Still not recognizing that his trade value with that contract in this CBA is just this side of zilch huh?

BTW, the above was leaked to me by Nonis. He sent this guy below, but it was him.

Canuckleheads are pretty dense. If they're mad at a rival GM for not taking a Canucks player, they must at some point come to the realization that they're peddling wares no one wants...

Uggh. As usual, when presented with facts and a level-headed perspective on the situation, they have decided to resort to the usual mudslinging and hate they've become famous for.

I actually wonder what they could get for CS when all teams know that they _must_ trade him instead of Lou? I see teams low-balling Vancouver to the tune of trolling. NJ already had a conversation with Van this TD and nothing came out of it, so offer did not impressed Van, my guess.

It's largely an one-sided affair, IMO. Canucks fans largely seem to hate the Leafs on the basis of a) hating Toronto and b) hating that the Leafs get so much media attention.

This whole Luongo fiasco reinforces my impression that Canuckleheads have a ridiculous sense of entitlement where their own organization is never really at fault for anything and everyone is out to get them because they are so great. The fact that they have delved into wild conspiracy theories and are wishing that Reimer fails so that we can see the light and overpay bears that out.

The past few months have been nothing but an annoying and aggressive sales pitch from Canucks fans in regards to why we absolutely need Luongo.

As a player, yes he would be great to have, but not with that contract. It's that simple.

I've been reading there for days. I read two guys talking about how they wouldn't take Lupul for Luongo. It truly has been fun.

Good post and well said.

This really has been an enjoyable experience thus far. I cant begin to name how many Vancouver posters said Lou was on a great contract, and will yeild massive riches in a trade due to his value. The continuing denial is hilarious.

There are still people who wouldn't have traded him for kadri last summer either too

I definitely feel bad for Luongo. He really seems to dislike Vancouver and wants out.

I hope they buy him out and then we sign him TBH. Luongo is a great goalie... it's just his contract

Haha - I was listening to it too. I've just been basking in the atmosphere out here since yesterday and relishing in all the anxiety of the Canucks' fanbase and the dipdonkey media. Reading the stuff on the Canucks' board has been such a great laugh too, it's just so great to see this happening, so deserving for that fanbase and particularly those here who were so militant and obnoxious about this all along and now they've just turned inward and are spewing "Leafs this, Leafs that" - it's gold, I hope it continues longer.

This is great to read too, I'm SO hoping they buy him out in the summer. Will add to it very nicely

Canuck fans' synopsis:

Nonis is an idiot because he didn't take the ridiculous, moronic contract that bigger idiot Gillis gave Luongo. Am I close?
