Nah it's just that we're filled to the brim on left wingers and need a right winger that can play top six, although I do like Macarthur's playmaking ability. Kulemin is the far more attractive option but the Leafs are not likely to part with him.

Fans will likely be taken aback, when the chants began in Vancouver I often heard kids and clueless fans muttering things like "Daddy why are they booing him?"

I've only been attending Canucks games regulararly for 10 years now so older fans may disagree with me but Luuuu chants have stood out in a huge way and are easily the best chant we have other than the often non inspirational "Go Canucks Go"

The fact that there have been 15 threads on Luongo is amusing. He's talented no doubt. There is such a wide net on what he is or is not worth. He may or may not be traded. I would say under 50% on the he is.

IDEALLY Lombo, Ashton, Colborne, 2nd 2012 and protected 1st 2013. Burke might not budge on the 1st though. Connolly over Lombo would probably be preferred as well. I'd love a package around Schenn too, not even because he'd fit well with our team, but that we could make another trade and really address our needs.

Cause he's a center. We lack those.

Worst case scenario is that Markstron doesn't pan out and you have a great goalie for the next 6 years.
Sure there are risks. But they seem pretty manageable.
Or they can re-sign Theodore for a couple years and not block Markstroms progress, not give up any prospects, and still have a former Vesna and Hart trophy winner to mentor him.

I'm not saying the Panthers will have no interest just that they wont pay a high price for him at all.

You're right except that reports suggest that Markstrom is not a sure thing. This is mostly due to his two knee operations.

LOL During the Olympics my mother who normally doesn't watch hockey wanted to know why they were booing him.

We'll see. 4 suitors means there is at least a bit of a bidding war, and Gillis has stated he's looking for a hockey trade.

Once it actually goes down people's heads are going to explode.

Nothing is a sure thing. Lu maintaining his level of play for the 7 yeas of his contract he is likely to play isn't a sure thing.
Taking the risk with Theadore and Markstrom costs them nothing. I just don't see them paying I high price to upgrade a position they don't need to upgrade. Those assets and salary can be better used to improve the team in the places they need help.

End of an era if the trade goes down. Canuck fans won't realize what they've lost in Roberto until he's gone I wouldn't imagine
I'm sure this has been discussed in great length between Burke and Gillis.

That's why Luuuuuuuuuke Schenn is coming our way, so we have someone else to boo.
But seriously, I want the kid to get his game back, in Vancouver or Toronto.

Don't need to upgrade? Jose is not even close to the level of goalie Roberto is.

Let me ask you this: what happens if Markstrom blows out his knee again? Grab another goalie, probably. Right now there happens to be one available who is a significant upgrade over Jose. He makes the team better and offers insurance.

It's a win/win as far as I'm concerned.

I'd agree. Toronto should be really pushing now. I'd see Florida as having pretty high interest too. With all of the great young prospects they have coming up Luongo could really push that team into a possible contender. Markstrom's injury concerns would make acquiring Luongo a pretty good move. An interesting few days.

If we draft a center at 5 Colbourne becomes pretty expendable imo.

He isnt a first line center and Grabo is locked into the #2 spot for 5 years.

Colboure would be behind the new guy and Kadri who I think the Leafs still want to move back into the middle at some point.

Leafs are perrenially worst in goals against.

Not usually that bad in goals for.

Fixing the goaltending is the bigger priority.

Fixing the 1C issue is the Britney Spears option. Sure, at first glance it may be sexy, but if you spend too much time and money on it, you wind up with a train wreck.

The problem is Tallon might not be willing to part with significant assets for contract that they don't really need.

Colborne is someone I am very interested in. Size youth and can help us with our pitiful centre depth

Jensen Colborne Kassian
that's a powerful line for the future
