Love that last sentence. Just make a solid couple of picks this year in a deep draft and get this franchise back on track. Big C and a couple other pieces.


The Leafs should be sellers at whatever the deadline is. Teams with lots of vets missing a few pieces will think this year is their chance, because their guys will be rested.

Luongo would absolutely help this franchise, but of course if the retail mark up is too high you'll create too many holes elsewhere to justify it. The Canucks are in a real bind, they have a window to win getting smaller every day, Kesler is out long term and Luongo is dead cap space sitting on a bench while the salary cap inches lower and lower. There is no reason why we have to be the ones to act foolish. There are a lot of goalie options out there that aren't in the media that could help us out. It's up to management to find solutions if our goalies don't hold up. There's not a huge market for Luongo and the Canucks need to start putting him on sale.

For all of Burke's shortcomings he managed to avoid the really burdensome contracts that were handed out the last CBA. I would rather not trade for one in Luongo and add a potential deadly contract 5 years from now.

You'll always think this, there's no amount of quotes that will change your mind about it.

Going into 2013/14...

Perry - MacKinnon - Kessel
JVR - Grabovski - Kulemin
Komarov - Colborne - Clarkson
Brown - McClement - Ashton

Gunnarsson - Phaneuf
Gardiner - Ranger
Liles - Holzer
Kostka

Luongo
Reimer
Instead of Luongo, we could sign Backstrom (doesn't have that contract) if Minny doesn't re-sign him.

just like all these high asking prices for Luongo are ridiculous. People like Maclean and McClown stating that it has to be Kadri and Gardiner when Vancouver could very well be handcuffed and screwed if they have to eat Luongos contract.

Everytime these guys mentioned Gardiner yesterday I was cringing and running to the balcony to smoke. How do you trade a potential all-star dman for a terrible contract that is due to ride the bench?

Switch Liles with Rielly, deal him for a pick in 2013.

Exactly as i thought. Burkes the one that wanted to pull the trigger for luongo not ownership or nonis. Everyone seems to think burke didnt want to.

Let us purge ourselves of LACK once and for all
I think it was TSN that showed a figure of the playoffs starting May 1st and the Trade Deadline on April 3rd.

I'm not sure if Rielly will be ready in 2013/14. That's why I left him off.

If he is, I'd do what you said. Deal Liles for a pick and insert Rielly.

It sure fits his pattern to date. Funny thing is people said because of the Kessel deal he would not do it, I would argue that he is more likely to do it because of it.

I would advise people not to get to attached to the idea we're going to tank and get a high pick.

I still think Roberto Luongo is a Leaf is very near future. I think even if he prefers Florida, And that's completely understandable, I think he knows the likely scenario is Toronto, And is slowly embracing it.

If you look at his past tweets under the strombone1 handle.

You got back to Luongo jersey tweet, Or to the "can I get some tickets" and there's a few other involving Toronto.

It's just a theory.

An owner has the say on employees.

If they don't like an employee they have the right to move him along, especially if he's a contract employee.

It isn't like everything was going along smoothly with Burke, even if he didn't make a bad impression on the owners.

I think Ryan Kesler runs that Twitter account.

It's not actually Roberto.

Can only pray.

As far as the ownership's interest in the high caliber of draftees this year, I'm pretty sure I remember Anselmi say that the team's direction was pretty much staying "status quo", which does not seem to imply that we'll start tanking all of a sudden.

At a reasonable price, would love to have Luongo here. If Gillis keeps up his ridiculous demand, I hope they run with what they have and let the young guys develop (with a good 2013 pick).

This would instill a lot of faith for me in the new ownership and management.

I really hope this is the case.

2nd. last
9th. last
5th. last

It might just be me, but that really looks like tanking.
