What a misleading title, you're going to make somebody think that there's an actual rumour of him moving out there.

Well, it's Deadline Day. It really is the only possible "end?" until the season is over!

You think a small detail like "no trades until the end of the season" will stop us from making proposals?

Would not Luongo's contract, especially the last few years, be very attractive to teams wanting to get to the salary cap floor? The Islanders gave up a 2nd round pick to get Tim Thomas' 5 mil. dollar cap hit, knowing they will not have to pay him, but the 5 mil. would count on their books.

Bad news, this morning on Sportsnet radio I learned that literally every goalie on the market is better than Luongo. That's including Bishop and Kipper. Woe is us!

I still think he goes.
IMO Gillis will probably take the best offer on the table as long as it includes a roster player.

I would love for him to go somewhere - anywhere - that is not Toronto. And for it to catch all the analysts completely off guard. Like, no "rumblings" of it beforehand - just have them say "uh...wow, the trade call is done and everything". Just watch them get completely punked.

Gillis is a master at keeping things under wraps. If the Flames trade Kipper to Toronto and Canucks basically say that's fine we'll move him to Team B for a lot less than they were talking about I would laugh so hard hahahaha.

Wouldn't be great for the organization but ultimate troll job hahahahahahahahaha.

Only at the tail end of his deal. There are 5 years until then.

I also have a feeling that it gets done today. I think they have tried to drive the price up to the point where they are getting some value, but in the end will take the best deal in front of them by the deadline. It seems like Lu is done with everything and the team needs a united dressing room if they are really going all-in. MacArthur, 2nd, Finn is my guess.

I think making the move for Roy is what could help facilitate that Luongo trade. Gilman said it himself, now they aren't as focused on acquiring that center in return, and can focus on building a deal around a winger or defenseman. Good centers are hard to find in this league and it's understandable that most teams don't want to part with them unless they have to. Toronto for example has a lot more available wingers than they do centers, same goes for Florida and even Tampa. Philly is probably in the same situation.

Eklund seems to think business is picking up. He's been hyping a potential Luongo trade all morning.
