Hawks Have Had "Long Interest" in Luongo; Potential Luongo Deal in Place with a Team

Mike Gillis: "We have a potential deal in place with one team that has to do something with another player that they have."

Bob McKenzie: Oilers are interested in Luongo and Chicago has had long interest. Says list of teams he WON'T go to isn't that long
Please don't be us. Seriously, please don't be us. That contract is so awful.

It's not us. Vancouver would want Bolland+ for Luongo. Do you honeslty believe Chicago would trade Bolland for Luongo?

But, in the off-chance it is Chicago, then it'd be all your fault: The fans. All the crying and whining about the goalie situation and about the lack of adding impact players since the talent sell-off.. well, there you go folks. Your prize is adding an overpaid, overrated goaltender who's only been out of the 2nd round of the playoffs once in his career.

For the right price, he'd be worth it.

That price doesn't include any player of Bolland's skill or better.

Hopefully that's in jest. No way it's Hawks. If, it is true, I'd bet Philly.

Im sure Chicago is interested, only if it cost us Shaw and Olesz, or something like that. No way Stan trades Bolland or anyone better for him. He would be killed by Hawk fans.

Also, I think Gillis' recent comments about having a deal all ready to go with some mystery team are just a bluff to try and drum up the price.

One of the most ridiculous things I've read.

Bowman doesn't react to what the fans want. He makes and attempts to make acquisitions through FA and through trade that he feels will better our team now and/or the long-term, whether or not he's right.

I started by saying it's not the Hawks, then qualified the rest of the post with "off-chance". I'm 99% sure it's not the Hawks.

Very logical thinking and one of the likely scenarios at play here.

Good post, sir.

Agreed, no GM says that stuff to the media without a purpose behind it. He's trying to create a bidding war, because the offers hes getting are what everyone but VAN fans are expecting.

Hope you realize how insane this is. No GM should make decisions like this because fans on message boards around the world are complaining.

So if it did happen, it would be all Stan & McD's fault for running a ****show of an organization.

You seriously don't think the Hawks brass, McDonough and the like, don't see and hear all the **** the fans/media whine and cry about? Every trade deadline since 2010, every off-season.. it's "Sign Richards! Sign Suter!".. this year it will be "Trade for Getzlaf!".. What's actually ridiculous is the amount of Hawk fans that think and have thought since 2010 that Chicago needs to make a big move; that think Chicago needs another big-ticket player. They don't and it would mean having to move one of Toews, Kane, Hossa, Sharp, Keith or Seabrook.

**** that contract. We'd still have to find a real backup (better than Emery) at a reasonable price when Lou needs to be pulled because we'd be at almost 8 milllion with him and Crow, no thanks.

Basically what I said.

Also, don't go to the main board. It's not worth it. Don't know why I bothered making a few posts. People are tossing around Saad, Bolland, and Sharp going to Vancouver.

I suspect this is true. I think Gillis is quickly realizing that the sooner he trades Luongo, the better for the team.

From the looks of it: No. They've made some attempts at signing some FA's that are really no different than the other 10 teams going after the same players. The organization has definitely stuck to it's own hired guns the past two years.

I think they know about the complaints by and wants of fans, but I don't think they make or attempt to make acquisitions due to them.

They went after Parise because he would have made this team better. They went after Grabovski because a top-six center was a need because Bolland stepped up.

Please no. I'd much rather the Hawks went after Bernier or something. Or just stick with Crawford and Emery. Luongo's a good goalie, but he has one of the worst contracts in the league and can choke in big games. I don't think he'll end up coming here anyways

Then somebody gets Bryz. I can't believe I'm saying it but I would much prefer Luongo.

The more I hear these terrible rumors, the more willing I am to take a guy like Bernier and Lehner and hope he's the answer.

That's quite possibly the most ludicrous thing I've read in the past six months. Which is quite the accomplishment.

It's not us, and if it is, so help us God. Vancouver can't afford to trade one of their goalies right now: no training camp=no real assurance, and after that sorry performance by Schneider they can't give up Luongo until Cory solidifies.

why would vancouver want to help us improve our goal situation? this trade would be very risky on a few levels. they'd want a massive overpayment to be sure and i just can't see bowman going for it.

more likely that as vancouver's situation turns into an even bigger fiasco, other teams are starting to smell blood, and gillis just wants to try to get leverage back.

in any event, i'd be surprised if van traded him w/in the conference - i don't see him going to us...and i certainly don't see him going to the oilers.
