It isn't reasonable to expect those guys to be happy sharing the crease forever more. It isn't reasonable for the team to continue to answer questions about it, or for us to have to listen to it. You're not thinking about this reasonably imo.

All I care is about winning. To me that's what matters the most. Not if you as a poster and fan are sick of reading stories in the media, or AV as coach is sick of answering questions in the press conferences. Winning.

What if we get a deal that helps us win but isn't what Luongo's full value is? You know getting pieces that aren't the be all end all but make us a more complete team that is far more capable of winning then one with a back up goalie being paid at least $4M?

So far haven't seen a proposal that falls into this category. Although perhaps something around Bolland and Saad or Teravainen would

Thats cause 90% of the "proposals" are from fans & not from people who are actually in the business of hockey.

I don't think we will get what we feel is full value but I think we will get pieces that help & makes us more of a complete team. No idea who or what that is but I trust in Gillis' ability to GM this team over us the fans who get over attached to players.

We will have to evaluate it when the time comes then. But garbage like Bozak and Franson don't help us.

And I'm not saying they are going to

In fact if you look at my posts in this thread & past you would know I want NOTHING to do with trading Luongo to the Leafs & agree that that return is garbage. Maybe not in the eyes of Leaf fans whose standard levels have drastically dropped but they are to a team that has a high standard level.

That's exactly what's going to happen, otherwise we would ice a team with a 9.3M tandem.

He's covered either way as he also doesn't believe Gillis will want to wait long enough to get fair value, whatever that means.

But either way the % of real deal proposals are slim to none.

I don't understand why we keep seeing Franson's name in these forums. He's committed to Sweden this year even if the CBA deal is done.

IF there is a NHL season and IF the canucks are going to trade luongo how long after the annoucement of play will he be dealt?

Has GMMG been able to talk to other teams?

No talks can be had during the lockout so even if he had, he'd need to wait a while so it didn't look bad

I'm sure he has been talking but I don't see any way a deal could be finalized before the CBA implications are sorted out.

Leaf fan coming in peace....

Frason did not commit the whole year to Brynäs IF, it was a mistake by media. He will be back like everyone else.

If Luongo isn't a major piece, I have to believe that there is at least a trade in the works between the two teams

Especially the part about the Canucks trading Luongo AND a prospect for a depth player from the Leafs.
