    Luongo

    any guesses where he goes? The even money has to be on the Leafs as I think that Burke was fired for not doing it. TSN is also reporting that Philly has jumped into the mix too. Florida is out there too but seems to not want to give up too much. I hope for the Canucks he gets traded sooner rather than later.

    Re: Luongo

    I hope he comes to our division, tooling on Luo rules.
    I remember that one fateful day when Coach took me aside. I knew what was coming. "You don't have to tell me," I said. "I'm off the team, aren't I?"
    "Well," said Coach, "you never were really ON the team. You made that uniform you're wearing out of rags and towels, and your helmet is a toy space helmet.
    You show up at practice and then either steal the ball and make us chase you to get it back, or you try to tackle people at inappropriate times."
    It was all
    true what he was saying. And yet, I thought something is brewing inside the head of this Coach.
    He sees something in me, some kind of raw talent that he can
    mold. But that's when I felt the handcuffs go on.

    Well he can't play in Boston. That much is for sure.

    Re: Luongo

    Playing against him would be a ball though, the fans absolutely buried him.

    Re: Luongo

    I have a better question:

    Considering Luongo's on the downside of his career, why would Buffalo want him?

    Who suggested that?

    His contract is obscene. And goaltender is far from our biggest problem. This makes no sense for Buffalo.

    But I bet Toronto at least makes a play for him. I was listening to NHL Radio on XM on my way home and they had the new GM of the Leafs on. He said good things about the Leafs goaltending but was non-committal.

    Re: Luongo

    My dark horse team is Tampa. If Tampa can deal/shed Vinny Lecavillier's deal- the could use Luongo - would solidify a position of need.


    Money is a big isue- but Lecavillier instead of Leino? I'd think about it

    alot of the speculation on twitter from the TSN guys is that Burke was fired because he wouldnt pull the trigger on a luongo deal, vancuver wants way too much

    If that's the case then Toronto is being stupid. Burke got housed on the Kessel deal. Not trading for Luongo shows that he isn't repeating his mistake with a much older player.

    Re: Luongo

    Darren Dreger was the first to report that something was "fishy" about the timing of the firing, stating that he saw burke and other members of the team brass and ownership scouting together at an OHL? game the night before the firing

    They traded for Rinne's backup before the lockout. I think Stevie Y has said before he won't trade for another goalie.

    That they did. And the media here did too. Someone that can be shook like that should be playing in Florida, far away from anyone who cares.

    Sorry, but Brian is the smart one in this matter.

    If I was Buffalo's GM, I wouldn't want him either.

    Of course not Buffalo. They have a goalie in Miller. There are teams out there that don't have any goalies. Toronto being one of them. I don't know how a team with no goalies wouldn't want a player who typically has a GAA of around 2.2 and a SP of .910. You are right that Vancouver is asking for a lot but I think they can ask a lot this year because there are no cap consequences. If he stays, I would bet the price be lower for the next year.
