Quite possible it's close to the deadline as well. If they are indeed in on this, I can see Holmgren pulling the trigger on something pretty massive like:

Schenn or Coutourier, Voracheck

for

Luongo, Schroeder or Jensen, Tanev + 1st.

Especially in the summer or at the draft.

I wonder how long Luongo's no-trade list is now that the season has started and he's still here as the backup.

Watch it be Detroit and we're waiting for Darren Helm to be healthy. Don't think people would expect that. Rumors were swirling that Datsyuk was offered for Luongo back when Luongo was in Florida. Jimmy Howard has been good in the regular season, but has never been solid in the playoffs, and is a UFA after this year. McCollum isn't developing the way we thought he was going to.

With Lidstrom gone, Detroit is desperate for a goalie or elite defense man. Luongo's the best bet.

Washington makes no sense. They have Neuvirth and Holtby, both of which made Varlamov expendable. Didn't they dump Vokoun as well? No chance.

Philly is a possibility.

Not sure I would be willing to give up Jensen on top of Luongo. Jensen has shown signs of becoming every bit the player Voracek has shown to be SO FAR. I see Jensen becoming a 50-65 point scoring forward, pretty much what Voracek is right now, so I'm not sure its worth it to give up Luongo on top of it.

I know about guaranteed success versus potential, a bird in the hand is worth two in the bush. Just saying I kind of want to see how he turns out before moving him, would rather move Gaunce.

  • Winnipeg - Just signed Pavelec
San Jose - Maybe. But I dont think Niemi has been that bad.Not been exceptionally good either ala Tosk/Nabs

Winnipeg - Just signed Pavelec Not a very good goalie yet


New Jersey it is.

I don't see it being the Islanders, no way does Luongo waive his no trade to go there. Philadelphia? Maybe... That quote does have me intrigued though.

MG is playing mind games with the fans and at the same time pressing the trading partner to agree and hope that "player" will be move? Maybe something at the end of the month

Agreed about Jensen. I'm very excited about him

I hate getting excited for Luongo news every time it pops up. It's been such a roller coaster ride the past 9 months, but each time it pulls me in.

I'm really hoping its Philly, there are simply so many forward options on that team that I'd like in a deal.
That was great

Gillis is one ornery man.

When we traded Hodgson we were told there were 5 players Gillis was targeting. Wouldnt it make sense that we go after one of the other ones if given the chance? I think two of the 'knowns' were Carlson from Wahington and Bjugstad.

No because the Canucks don't need D, and Bjugstad doesn't help them now. A third "known" was Brandon Sutter, when he was in Carolina.

As long as we don't get Kyle Clifford.....

Jensen is having a fantastic year in the SEL but for him to become the player Voracek is now in a couple years is FAR from certain.

Touche. He's been saying he wanted someone who was proven though. Bjugstad doesn't entirely fit that especially him being in college.

The Flyers make perfect sense...so perfect that the "it's not who anybody thinks it is" criteria seems to apply, ruling them out.

I suspect San Jose. They're close enough to the cap that they'd have to do something with Niemi, and we don't want him at $3.8m for three years. They have the forward depth to meet our needs there. And Doug Wilson has a track record of trying to fix things through huge deals.
I don't think the Flyers have given up on their goalie.

None of those three guys are any more "hopers" or "projects" than Schroeder and Jensen, and all 3 have equal or more upside. I don't think Gillis has ever made a trade like the proposed one before (prospect for good young player), so I don't know were the "keep trading" aspect comes in.

Detroit manages older players well too.

They wanted Nabokov though and they might still pursue him...?
