N. Backstrom will go to either EDM or NYI
M. Smith will re-sign with PHX
R. Luongo will go to either EDM or NYI
J. Bernier will go to CGY or NJ

what do you think?

Backs will re-sign.
Smith will go to philly after Bryz is bought out, and suck there after receiving a megacontract.

Luongo goes to NJ
Bernier is traded to Calgary

Lu won't be going to Edm, no way he'll waive to go there... NYI is a possibility, at least it's in the same time zone as his wifey

new jersey loses their only scoring? no way

it's time for vancouver to really deflate luongo's value because teams know that vancouver is desperate to solve the goaltending issue

Harding/Kuemper playoff performance brought confidence to Minny that they can turn the page on Backstrom?

i thought Philly was to rely on Mason for the upcoming season?

NJ will press hard for Bernier

No one will press hard for Luongo

Leafs might kick the tires on Backstrom depending on how Reimer finishes the playoffs

Smith will either re-sign or go to the Isles

He's not worthless just because we want to get rid of him...

If a team has a need to fill, they have to pay for it. Not gunna just give Lu away because we don't need him.

You're talking about the Florida Everblades, right?

He's worthless because you have to get rid of him, and your miserable GM has failed to see that for the past year or so. Vancouver should just be happy to get rid of that contract without taking anything near as bad back.

Backstrom, Smith re-sign.

Luongo to Florida Panthers. This is a no-brainer. Gillis will have to climb down off his mountain of rhetoric and pay part of the freight.

Bernier to Montreal. Major shocker! Price is going to NJ, I am guessing.

Edmonton should throw a truck of money at Backstrom. If you can't beat them, sign them.

Last offseason? Maybe.

After this season? Nope. While the numbers suggest FLA goalies struggled, they really didn't. Well, Clemmensen did. But Markstrom sure as hell didn't. The injury riddled team left him out to dry on most nights and didn't score enough to compensate for the brainfarts they made.

Markstrom is the future in FLA and the team doesn't need a 6.7 million backup on a eternity contract.

I don't think so. He has leverage. The buyout is thirty million. If he can force that, he should. How? He needs only refuse a few more suggestions from Gillis, that will force the issue.

I think it is entirely possible the Canucks move Schneider at that time, rather than pay for the buyout. Gillis knows this. Tallon knows this. They will figure it out. I expect it to be damn costly for Vancouver.

I agree with what you say about Florida. They don't need a six point seven million dollar back-up. They should be able to get Luongo for around four, though.

Even then, I agree they aren't gaining a lot. Lu has been a back-up for a year and will be thirty-four.

The real issue here is money. Aquilini will not pay for the buyout. I have doubt that he will even agree to partially pay for salary! I am certain he will find a way to mitigate the thing financially. I imagine the player is going to get screwed, but maybe not. Perhaps they can work out a deal where Florida accepts Lu and some other guy for a bad contract like Upshall?

I wouldn't want any part of that contract as an EDM fan. Maybe if the Nucks buy him out first.

Smith has made it pretty clear that he wants to get paid and that he's not coming back unless Phoenix sorts out the ownership situation. Basically no Coyotes fans expect to see him back at the Job next year former than two or three games.

5.3, buy him out when he's useless

N. Backstrom resigns in Minny on a cheaper deal
M. Smith to NJ
R. Luongo NYI or one of the FLA teams
J. Bernier NYI

Riiiight. I'm sure Florida's owner would be thrilled with this plan. Just throw away a boatload of money because your GM can't manage the cap properly. Not to mention you still take a cap hit (albeit a smaller one) when you do buy him out. Have fun with that...

IMO at this point, the only way Lu ends up back as a Panther is through a buyout (which won't happen IMO), and even then I'd doubt why he'd sign with FLA when there's teams lining up for his services as a number 1. He'd be in another Schneider situation with Markstrom if he signed there.

Lu gets paid 6.7 until 2018, you should know that by know as a Vancouver fan.
