Hes $4 million below the cap with 16 signed. Needs to sign Tanev, a 3rd line center and maybe another winger, but there's room again assuming Ballard is gone.
My bad, I was looking at salary payroll not cap payroll. Duh.

Any update on Booth and if he is expected to be ready for the beginning of the season?

I still have a gut feeling Luongo is in play, but the balance just shifted further into GMMG's court.

How does that Nonis deadline day rumour look now?

For those not liking the value, consider the Pommiville, JBou and Iggie deals for lesser 1st round picks.
Well Fransico Aquilini flew this morning to Florida to talk to Luongo to smooth things over after this entire fucking mess MG got us into.

Once deal was agreed on last night, Canucks owner Francisco Aquilini decided to fly to Florida this morning to talk to Luongo.

Aquilini is there now. Don't think he's hooked up with Luongo though yet. Obviously wants to smooth things over

Booth's agent Mike Liut says his client will be fine come training camp.

Can't imagine Luongo being none too happy about this after being dragged under a fucking bus all year, knowing full well the team has Schneider as their #1 goalie, then boom now he's expected to run back happy with open arms to this team? smh

Anyways hopefully the Aquabros can indeed smooth things over.

Yes this is another fucking mess Gillis has gotten us into Skyo.

Seriously, how does Lou come back to Vancouver after making it crystal clear he wants out??

Perhaps Aquilini is there to whisper in Lou's ear "SHHH we've got another deal in place to send you to the Panthers."

lol but yeah Francesco will have to purchase a home for him, like Lu needs more money, but that's the type of love Luongo needs to feel better. :P BurningBeard knows whats up.

But yeah happy with the picks overall Horvat and Shinkaruk :thumbs:

Hoping Ballard for 2nd as we need a future dman!

Yeah I heard the other day Lou's condo in Vancouver sold.

Is it true?

Bridges have been burnt, I just don't see Lou coming back and being happy no matter HOW much Aqua pumps his tires.

No it's still unsold.
@BradZiemer
Luongo's realtor tells me his Vancouver condo, listed for $4.2 million, has not sold. So he's got that going for him.
But maybe Lu now needs a penthouse at Shangri-La.

What a circus. I'm curious what we will think once the inevitable Luongo spring meltdown happens

Can't see Luongo happily going back to his ex after the young buck down the street was shamelessly tapping her ass for the last 14 months

That said, Horvat looks like a damn good asset and definitely good value for CS.

Circus is over, Luongo got what he wanted, to be the #1.
