Its LU people. They are still talking Gillis and Burke. Thats the next trade.
curious where ur finding info? on sportsnet and tsn all i keep seeing is that mistake tweet that lu blocked a toronto deal....so who is saying that this is next trade? and is it a done deal already? or close? i heard ANA RADIO said TOR VAN blockbuster close to done
Scored 22 last year...Gonna be rehabbing a torn labrum for 6 months...the 40 goal season was the exception rather than the norm. He's never scored 30 beyond that 1 41 goal season (where his shooting % was like 5% higher than his career norm
If Grabo is in deal in my eyes, we should get Kesler in return as well as LU....i read FLA is out and cant afford Lu's contract...I dont think FLA was even in this to start, the only reason they have been mentioned is cause Lu's wife lives there. If you look back on my past posts i called the staal trade to caroline a week before the draft, before any rumor started....Im starting to get really excited bout hearing Lu deal is basically done...but I want to know if this is true or this is speculation or nothing at all
If the asking price for Luongo is Grabo, Franson and a conditional 1st round pick...what do you think they'll want for Kesler?
No thanks. Move along.
Asking price isnt final price...I think Gillis only has Toronto as an option honestly no other team is in mix...FLA no way possible they are one of the most poor teams in the league and you think they can afford Lu's contract...I could see Toronto offering cash into deal if it included Kesler.....if you think grabo and franson n pick is just for Luongo I dont think you have the whole story right
I think you guys are a little over sensitive about the American/Canadian content on a hockey team. One only has to look at past champions to see that the majority of the team is made up of Canadians. This may very well change as time goes on and the game becomes all that bigger in the US. As it stands right now we need more Canadian players on this team. A good mix of Canadian and American players with some Euro's. We need a little of everything but grit comes from Cdn players. This is not a bash against American players, so don't take it as that.
As a side note. Having Kessler as our number one centre would be a complete disaster. He had one really good playoff series and has been relatively quiet and injured in most of the others.
