Remember when Doc Strangelove wanted Keaton Ellerby in a Luongo trade with Florida? The Los Angeles Kings only had to give up a 5th round pick for him in a trade today.
Hmmm.. YOU seem to have a bee in your bonnet in regards to yours truly of late.
It is true that the Great Strangelove was tongue-in-cheekedly suggesting Ellerby be included as part of a package
.... in order to lure his cousin UFA-at-the-time Shane Doan to sign with your Vancouver Canucks:

To which you responded and yours truly re-responded:

Don't know about the Ellerby angle, Doc. General consensus is that Petrovic's ceiling is higher, not to mention that Petrovic is a right sided (right shot) defenseman and that Ellerby is a left-sided defenseman. I also like Petrovic's nastiness. A presence we need on D.

Yes, yes as I said before: "Petrovic is a major asshole".
Which is just what the doctor ordered....
Note YOU certainly weren't calling Ellerby anything even NEAR a bust at that point in time.
And we both much preferred Petrovic to Ellerby (of course).
As recently as last week it appears YOU would've been in favor of MY Ellerby++ trades from back when:

Luongo will be 34 in April, Gillimiblicle waits to trade him this off-season, he will turn 35 in the first year of his new team. The longer this goes on the less valuable his asset becomes. It's simple math. TRADE HIM NOW! GET WHAT YOU CAN!

Look around the league, there is no fit for a 34 year old Luongo. No team is screaming out WE NEED LUONGO! That is, if Gillis stops being an ass and lowers his ridiculous trade demands. Be done with it, turn the page, start a new chapter. Shite, I don't even think we could get Bozak straight up, even with how well Luongo is playing right now.

The longer this goes the more ya realize that Gillis needs to lower his demands and just get what he can for Luongo.
So now what do you have to say for yourself my friend?
