We have a potential deal in place with one team,’ GM says of Luongo deal

Quote:

Canucks GM Mike Gillis won’t be stampeded into changing plan: ‘This team as good’ as 2011 Cup finalists

‘We have a potential deal in place with one team,’ general manager says of a Roberto Luongo deal

...

“We have a potential deal in place with one team that has to do something with another player that they have — and it’s not who anybody thinks it is — and so we have to wait. (But) we’ve been offered packages that don’t fit what our plan is, what we need,” said Gillis.

Like, how?

“Excess salary coming back with a [throw-in] player who can’t play in our lineup. They say, ‘OK, we’ll do this, but you’ve got to take this.’ Well, we’re not taking it. We’ve had lots of proposals like that with good pieces that can help us but the other part doesn’t help us, and oftentimes they have term attached to them, so we’d just be turning around and buying out a guy.

Watch it be a 3 team trade involving Dallas. Imagine if we did get Benn...

Sedin - Sedin - Kassian
Benn - Kesler - Booth
Higgins - Schroeder - Burrows
Weise - Lapierre - Hansen

A cycling line, a crash and bang line with the ability to score, defensively responsible forechecking 3rd line and a checking 4th line. That's amazing.

Not saying it's going to be Dallas, but I bet the Luongo trade is a three-way deal.

Benn is their future captain and franchise player. They want to build the franchise around him. I would love him as much as anyone here, the guy is amazing. But it's not fair to get people's hopes up when we have zero chance. (I know you weren't saying we have a chance, this isn't really directed at you).

I think this is big enough to warrant it's own thread.

Very interesting quote. Someone else speculated maybe Colorado, waiting on the O'Reilly situation. That was good theory - not saying it's Colorado, but something like that could be at play.

I'm betting its BS, but if he's being honest and there is a team I'm going to guess its Washington.

My guess is Drew Shore, who is called up right now to fill a spot because of the injury to Versteeg. But who knows.
