These guys are multi-millionare athletes, their ''issues'' are under the bridge literally in seconds if they're on the same team.
I would only accept Hossa/Kane/Sharp from Chicago.

Bolland is overrated to be honest. Yes, he can be very good at times, but he absolutely sucks at faceoffs, is a bit injury prone, and inconsistent and streaky.
Some people consider him to be a lower end 2nd liner, but he is a pretty good 3rd liner at best.


I would only accept Bolland IF:
1. We signed Doan to fill our need for a top 6 forward.
2. Chicago adds a decent prospect.
3. Bolland doesn't hate the Canucks and the Sedins.

Oh wait, we can't do it, he hates the Canucks and the Sedins.

Again, if we can sign Doan, our forward group would be amazing:

Sedin-Sedin-Burrows
Booth-Kesler-Doan
Higgins-Bolland-Hansen
Lapierre-Malhotra-Kassian
Add to that our defence and Schneids in net, I don't see a better collection of 19 players in the NHL than this one.

Tatar to Ottawa E4
Luongo to Ottawa E4
I counter that with one of the most random things to ever cross my mind. I dreamt we
traded cory schneider for Brandon Saad, and Marc-Edward Vlasic. The fact they both play on separate teams, and I've read their names only a handful of times, makes me scared of my own imagination.

I can't believe that some people here would actually entertain the idea of trading Luongo to Chicago for Bolland and picks.

Yea, let's trade a top goalie to one of our main conference rivals for spare parts.

Well we are at it, why don't we trade Edler to the Wings for a 2nd round pick?

I don't like Bolland that much either, but value wise it's fine.

Luongo shouldn't be going to Chicago period; not unless Chicago wants to cripple their team (Kane/Hossa/Toews) in order to compensate for getting a quality goaltender. And since none of those guys will ever get traded for Luongo, the probability of him going there is slim.

Gillis would have jumped on either Gudbransson + 1st or Weiss + 1st in a heartbeat.

Dan Murphy just spotted a number of Budaj's sticks at YVR.

Indicative of anything?

Well, I think Gillis probably should have held out for some tape in addition to the sticks, but it's not like we expected to get a lot more back for Raymond.

I was thinking connecting flight to MTL, but why would he have sticks?

He must be one of the pieces coming our way in the upcoming PK Subban/Keith Ballard trade.

If Lu was traded to CHI and Bolland was coming back and some picks, it would be disappointing. It should have to be overpayment

Thankfully, I'm sure Gillis knows this.

You just don't give Chicago the missing piece to their roster for a mediocre third line forward with no upside.

Maybe this is foreshadowing of another big fish Gillis will land, with Luongo as bait!
