remember when Travis D'arnaud was untouchable? Rogers wants to make an impact move much like the Jays did.

Oh no, not the attitude, the "power" has slid from the Leafs to the Canucks, if this were an actual negotiation. And don't worry, it's still reciprocated Present company excluded of course.

Bingo, but now instead of being low value for the Canucks, it's sky rocketed in percieved value.

It's no longer "that's crazy" it's "that's crazy, but if it happens...". That's what gets me.

Well, Nonis will do what he thinks best for his team, Leafs fans, watch a lot of deadweight get cast off, and new dead weight brought in. Burke V. Nonis is like the tide. I don't see Kessel or Phaneuf being moved (of course), but Luongo in with that core makes your team a rock, and even if Gardiner is given up, I assure you you will be a better team on the other side of things.

If Vancouver does indeed get Gardiner I will be ecstatic and so many ******** Toronto fans get to eat crow. You guys can keep Kadri though. Gardiner & Bozak will be just fine, thank you.
Most Leaf fans would be ok with something close to that. The ones who freaked out and called it ludicrous are the same as the Canuck fans who asked for Gardiner and a first.

Gardiner is a good young player, but he isn't Bobby Orr FFS.

Luongo is a true impact player.

the others at this time are contributors, not leaders.

Even if its Gardiner + Bozak + Kadri + 1st I still think the Leafs are a better team with LU.
We want to win a CUP. How much longer will Luongo be a true impact player?

So apparently Nonis agreed with a deal of Luongo for something.

And the same source thats telling us this, says that something was Kadri + Gardiner.

Is this enough evidence that it was about Luongo?
