Unlike Luongo being open to getting out of Vancouver I seriously doubt Lecavalier would ever waive his NMC, especially to Vancouver.

Not quite true. Vancouver cannot elect to take Schneider to arbitration until July 5 when they will have a 24-hour window to do so. If Gillis doesn't want to risk Schneider receiving and potentially accepting an offer sheet (which, yes, Vancouver could then match), either Schneider will have to accept his qualifying offer (which ain't happening) or they will need to re-sign him before July 1.

Irrational preference, that's why.

Bottom line, the Lightning would be fortunate to head into next season with the services of Luongo or Thomas next season. Neither would be obtained without serious contemplation by Lightning brass.

If these proposals are what VAN will actually be asking for, I would rather overpay for Bernier than overpay for Luongo. Well, not me personally, but you know...

You don't necessarily have to unload Vinny to obtain Luongo. Canucks would take Malone and possibly Ohlund if it included 1st/Connolly/Hedman

Tampa would be a force with Luongo.

a 1st, Connolly, and Hedman all have extremely different values.. So I'm really hoping you didn't mean all of them.

Please give whatever it takes to get Bernier so I never have to read a Vancouver fan proposal again.

Seriously! I was just reading for a few days here before posting..

It's getting insane how in Vancouver they think that getting Luongo is our goal and that we will part ways with players like Hedman/Vinny

I don't think you realize that Vancouver is in the position of power. You'll need to ass at least Stamkos or Purcell++

It really seems like the more logical fit anyway. Burke is probably done if he doesn't get to the playoffs next year. Even though he doesn't like long contracts, he might be seeing it as a necessary pill to swallow, given he's already in last chance saloon up there.

Plus they have the invaluable Schenn and Kadri as trade pieces

But....Vinik doesn't have the money to go after Luongo!! He lost a gazillion million dollars last year. And he will never ever make any money with the Lightning.

And if that will stop all of the Luongo silliness on the main boards, I'm all in favor of Toronto and Vancouver fans believing it.

I believe he was an actor on the high profile show known as "Full House". I hear he plays hockey in his spare time. Makes sense he would play for Tampa since they're bleeding money and can't sell out the arena

I'm a Canuck fan not living in Vancouver. I do see Luongo being traded as mentioned before. I do see interest in him. I do not see VL coming back if from TB. I also don't see guys like Hedman, Connolly involved. I'm not sure what to expect if he goes to TB which Luongo would like- SY may have other ideas or other teams may offer more that are acceptable to Luongo. I would expect a draft pick or 2, a decent prospect or player and possibly a mild bad contract but I do admit- I'm not sure what the trade would involve. Certainly not high end players. and not Vl.

Apparently according to the trade board Luongo will get the Canucks one of Seabrook, Hossa or Kane.

that makes no sense, Vancouver will need cap space to resign Schneider - they will have to send bad contract to Chicago(apart from Loungos)
