Seems to me Gillis has overplayed his hand and now is stuck with Luongo . If there was a trade to be had, we would have had it by this morning already.

Hes going to be here for the rest of the season.

The thing for me is that I don't think Luongo is a 'quick fix'. He will bring stability to the back end for years, get the fans excited, and possibly attract some solid players to the Leafs organization. Some players are not going to jump onboard and take a discount when reimer/scrivens is in net. Lu may have his moments, but man oh man, these were exciting years as a Canucks fan (good and bad). Those chicago/canucks series would not be anywhere close to as memorable if Lu wasn't taking us on a rollercoaster ride. BEfore gamea 7 vs chicago, I was sitting outside of Rogers ARena and I have never been more stressed out in my entire life. I'm glad he was at least able to beat the HAwks in the playoffs before leaving the Canucks. Good to conquer that obstacle.

No it just confirms players like Gardiner, Rielly and probably Kadri won't be included.

Look for: Bozak, MacArthur, Connolly, Lombardi, Franson, picks combinations.

Vancouver will throw in Raymond and Schroeder and replenish your prospect pool.

Like I said before, there is absolutely zero chance that you get either of them. Luongo has negative value, ESPECIALLY under the new CBA. You'd be lucky to get Kadri and a 6th.

But according to some Canuck fans Burke was fired for not acquiring Lu at any cost.

Our ECHL team has a full roster but thanks for your concern for our minor minor league affiliate.

I think there is a scandal that will come out about something he did behind the scenes. The timing and the silence from MLSE is bizarre and there are rumours abound.

Burke was fired because he wasn't the model "CEO kiss ass" that Rogers and Bell wanted. Nothing to do with Luongo.

If there were only 3 teams in on him, no they won't. Toronto won't trade youth, Florida doesn't really need him and Philly will only trade for him if you take Bryzgalov.

Yes because teams seem to be lining up to pay the price your asking for.

Once the season starts and goaltenders falter, it'll heat up. Gillis is patient.

Where Florida? Where Gillis asked for their #3 prospect and was thrown out the door? If you dont want the Bozaks, MacArthurs etc. than prepare yourself for the Kopckeys and Bergenheims.
