How do the Rangers get Luongo...put your proposals here

Well, here I am, an Isle fan, who's felt that Luongo wants out of Florida for a variety of reasons, and sees him at a 3.2, pissed off, and back under Keenan. Rangers are a team that needs a goalie, despite whatever prospects they have in system, in one of the biggest markets in the US of A. To me, they are not a prime suitor..but THE prime suitor...but not the best trade partner, like the Avs would be. But, then, I think...is that so?? What can the Rangers offer?? Can Luongo be brought to NYC?? They need Luongo...make no mistake about it....the Rangers have floundered too long, and Dolan chomps at the bit to make a real stir and for a future that screams : Playoff Money!!!!!

This all said, I can see Luongo being unhappy, but subsisting another year till the next battle in 2006 with Florida and Iron Mike. But make no mistake about it, ladies and gents...this man is not a happy Florida Panther. So, lets see some possible proposals that can actually do the deed.

They simply don't have anything of real value to swing such a deal.

I don't think Luongo is as upset as people think he is. He wanted more money just like every player in NHL history, but more importantly, he wanted to be on a winning team (something the Rangers don't have the best chance at -- then again, neither do the Panthers).

If the Panthers are competitive this year, Luongo will have no problem staying. He just wants to be part of a winning team.

Even though the idea is stupid, how about:
To Florida: 2006 1st pick, Henrik Lundqvist, Kevin Weekes, Tom Poti, Karel Rachunek
To NYR: Roberto Luongo

And a few prayers.

but on a more serious note, i just dont see it happening. from what ive heard, the rangers are building their team up solidly, the guys they have are, i would assume, the guys they want. to then go and trade a chunk of that away, even for a good goalie? that would give the rangers a good goalie and a weaker team. the whole time people have been talking about Luongo, ive heard panthers fans saying that the rest of the team didn't help him enough. And he wasn't able to prduce there. if he joins a weakened rangers team, i don't see him suddenly stepping up and delivering the rangers to the postseason. although i can see the point about not being happy in florida.

i just dont see it being the rangers who he ends up with but i too would be interested to see what rangers fans think of this idea. I don't have that strong a grasp of their team so i may be way off base, but i just dont see it happening.

crazy

nothing the rangers could offer would be a fair trade for luongo. And keenan said on tsn he has no intention of trading luongo and plans to neogiate jan.1. And luongo said on the panthers offical site hes content with the situation, and will prove he can move to the next level and get the team to the playoffs . keenan will pay him more money if he brings the team to the playoffs and has another outstanding year.
everybody can stop these luong trade threads cuz its a waste of time .

We have to start this by pointing out one very important thing...the NYR's will NOT be any sort of contender for another 2-3-4 yrs from now so it makes no sense to swing for the fences with a blockbuster trade.

Stay the course and keep building the prospect pool which is already nicely stocked and which will only get deeper when the NYR's purge all the vets on one yr deals again ala 2004 at the deadline when we deal Ruchinsky-Straka-Poti-Rucchin-Niemenen and maybe even Nylander and Jagr.

As for the NYR's in net I feel that they will be set in goal with both Lundquist as well as Montoya who will both be good #1 with Lundy being the better of the 2 IMO.

They are also deep on defense and have some very solid future 2nd and 3rd liners upfront but they need the offensive stud or 2 to help complete the rebuild and hopefully another out of the PO's finish combined with the deadline purge will help bring about the cahnce to select one of these types of players.

Rangers DO NOT need Luongo at all. We are not going for the cup right now #1, #2 we have 2 potential superstar goalies in our system. Giving up 1st round picks and or top level prospects would be the stupidest thing the Rangers could do.

Sorry bud, Lundqvist as the potential to be a much better then good goalie as does Montoya. Why dont you stick to your Isles and stop worrying about the Rangers goaltending since you obviously dont know anything about our system.

Why in the world would an Islander fan want the Rags to get Luongo. This is the part i'm having trouble wrapping my head around.

you obviously don't know what your talking about man

lundquist is 23 and dominated a very strong swedish elite league...how is that not the formula for a potential superstar?

33-8-3 record
1.79 GAA (remember, NHL players played in that league last year)
.936 save percentage

"He ranked among the Swedish Elite league goaltending leaders in several categories, including: wins (33, first), goal against average (1.79, first), save percentage (.936, first), shutouts (6, first) and minutes played (2641:51, second). "

i don't i am throwing out the idea. I don't mind the competion...Rangers being strong again is inevitable. Think outside the box that being a team crony traps you in.

Call it unrealistic. Sadly, I know better...and we have a difference of opinion. If this thread isn't for you...go back to your own and don't take part.

you have tons more posts than me, yet you are doing the usual flamer crap. disagree, then move on, fanboy. you gave nothing in this thread...others at least provided info and opinon

its a formula for a guy to be a NHL-level goalie. How you get superstar from that...well, thats your thing. He'll be a potential superstar when he shows that stuff on the NHL level, not other leagues. Sorry. Difference of opinion. I didn't even think Rick Dipietro a potential "superstar" just a potential NHL good goalie based on his college stats. I don't swallow hype even to my own team.

i heard they inquired, thus i made the thread. i won't name names....nor is it just a board rumor. nor do i extol it as a RUMOR to be bandied..but I did use it as impetus to think out what proposal it would take to make it happen. I was thinking it to myself, and understanding why they would inquire...big market needs proven goalie superstar...and put forth in here b/c i didn't see what they could do to swing the deal...which is why i didn't start making it...

Montoya, several Calzones and a 1st for Luongo proposal.

It would take a massive load of prospects to get Luongo -- something like Tyutin, Montoya, Dawes, and a 1st (maybe 2).

I won't bash the premise of this thread (why do people come to a trade proposal board to bash people that propose trades?) but I will say that I disagree with the idea that the Rags need Luongo. One of their two top goalies will be the real deal -- probably both will -- by the time the Rangers' above-average pile of prospects produce wins for them. There isn't a goalie alive that could salvage the Rangers this year, so Sather needs to stay the course and wait.

On the other hand, if I'm the Panthers and the Rangers approach me with a package of three top prospects and two very, very high first-round picks, I'm listening.
