I was wondering the same thing.

I'm also wondering what "Luo so out off" means.

:drink:

Fucking phone.....Lou spout off?...lol

Lack's good play means Torts can be comfortable with either goalie in the 'Classic'.
Torts' twitter policy made his opinions on corporate gossip clear.
Gillis said 'no comment' when asked whether Kesler wants a trade.
Kesler said he didn't comment on it, doesn't want to talk about it, & doesn't want other players to talk about it.
Luongo, on the other hand, once again, seems to value humour over discretion.
Goalie selection for the 'Classic' could be a message to Luongo - to 'get with the program'.

Nothing wrong with what Luongo said in jest. If the Canucks are that f****ing petty then the problems are bigger than anything any of us think.

One thing we haven't heard from MG or Gillman is that don't expect any big moves by trade deadline day!!

If handled right MG has the opportunity to do a complete rebuild in a matter of a few days.

A great return for Kesler and a Edler.

Somewhat of a hockey return for Luongo.

Bieksa to Boston for another Louie and a pick.

Burrows to Les Habs for an out of favour young Swedish D'man.

Booth for a late round pick.

So here is what I'd do and MG better get er done! No excuses, these deals are all there for the taking.

Kesler for Johanson (sp) and a 1st. We take Gaborik off their hands to help them clear cap.

Edler for Mantha, DeKeyser, a 1st and one of Nyquist/Tartar

Luongo for MAF, Sutter and a 1st

Bieksa for that other Louie, Marchand and a 1st.

Burrows for that Swedish D'man and a 1st.

Pick up Campbell for a 7th for the playoff run.

Do it MG. No more over evaluating our players. Just get what you can along the lines I have drawn here and all will be ok.

Management has GOTS to go and Torts can go fuck off as well.

I can't blame Luongo for being 'diappointed', but on the other hand its not his call.

He was asked about it and answered truthfully, but the media has look to controversy where they can.

After watching tonight's Hawks-Pens game in the snow, the BC Place game is going to look quite anti-climatic.

The only reasonable explanation for this move is that they are in trade talks regarding Luongo and do not want to risk an injury. Otherwise it is a massive insult to Luongo who weathered this storm once before and in a very professional manner.

If this is not the case then MG must go. Enough is enough. Is he trying to get players to ask to be traded instead of being the one to ask them? If so he may get more than he bargained for.

If he trades Luongo for shit then none of this makes any sense at all. Here is hoping he has a respectable trade in the works, not a home run by any stretch but perhaps a respectable hockey trade.

If Pittsburg is going to pull the trigger on Kesler and if they are still not sold on bringing MAF back after this season it would make some sense that they take Luongo for MAF + along with whatever the Kesler deal involves.

If it is a trade..would luongo not know about it? Why would he be pissed at not starting the classic?

It's odd but not unheard of for this franchise. They really must be stupid if they don't realize the shitshow this would cause. Given all the drama around this team the sooner Kesler, Luongo and maybe Edler go the better.

It's the absolute blinders they seem to have on. If nothing else Luongo has earned the right to at least be asked if he wants the game. How could the team not know that this would upset Luongo and how could they not care.

If they did this and there is no trade or injury then MG is the biggest dick.
