Shame Gillis didn't make the rumoured Schenn deal yesterday.

It is hard to say if JVR would be used to get Luongo. Until I hear Burke talk about him he could be in play, but because this is a rumoured deal long before Luongo was available I doubt he would be included in any deal.

Burkie doesn't seem like the type of guy to bring in a young player and flip him.

Say what you want about him, he does go to war for his players.

Honestly curious.

Looks like the Leads need a #1 Center, some PK specialists, 1 PP d-man and a #1 goalie...

I don't think JVR was available yesterday... call it a hunch but I storngly believe Bobby Ryan is on the way to Philly now and they just wanted to off load some forwards.

Yes that our list but we also need a big young winger as most of our forwards are small, so fills a big need. Don't really need 1 PP d-man.

You mean the kid that would sign for a mil but got railroaded because he wouldn't sign for $775,000?

Yes.

2 completely opposing circumstances.

A player who won't vs a player you traded for.

I can't see Burke trading JVR... Burke is more likely to try to unload roster scraps to make room for JVR, than offer JVR... I don't think a deal for Luongo gets done with Toronto...

I don't think offers work like that. I would imagine TOR offered Schenn, Gillis thinking he has enough blueline depth and needs a scoring touch, says "no". Burke phones philly and pitches them after they heard bobby ryan wants to come to philly.

Again just a hunch, but it'd be interesting.

Raymond is garbage and has been since his one good season. The injury excuse only goes so far but he is certainly inferior to JVR, who has much better potential. His cap is not that bad when you consider we would drop Raymond.

Oh, I doubt it happens but seeing someone asked if we would make the trade. I answered. Hard to say what happens with Luongo now.

Just the type of player Gillis likes, however, at 4.25 million we'd have 27.7 millions on the top 2 lines... that's hefty for sure....
But if JVR lives up to potential will be a very good asset for you guys. We'll see, maybe this get's gillis calling?

At least Raymond has had a good season. JVR is still living off his draft position. He is not the player he was touted to be.

Yep... now there is a useful player for the Canucks. He would definitely be the kind of player needed on the 2nd line.

It would be funny if after all of this both Vancouver and Toronto win by getting what they need.

Even if Toronto keeps JVR, they come out way ahead on that trade.

Isn't going to happen though, Burke as already made a statement about how JVR will help Toronto. If the flipping was going to happen it would have been right away.

JVR is what our organization needs, the "scraps" won't get it done.
Not saying it will happen but that is someone who I imagine gillis wants.
Good trade Burke, now it's your turn gillis

Ya, as soon as Burke makes any mention of him and what he brings he is off the table. No way he flips him if he did say something.

Also based on the Tsn video DraftCentre: Next on the List?, it looks like Burke is frustrated and Gillis is playing hard ball. It really seems like a deal is not going to happen at least with the Leafs.

Not an ideal fit on an already soft top 6... but better than anything else I have heard so far.
