Can't remember both GM and asst GM ever being at an away game in the east before, especially considering the team is going to Edmonton tomorrow and the Nucks don't play either team this year.

If they are trading with the Caps (Pens have good goalie depth) I would love to see Tm Wilson as part of the return. Big, mean and over a PPG in the OHL this year.

Guess we'll know soon enough if this means anything.

Washington is the only team that comes to mind who I think can actually justify acquiring Luongo. The other teams (FLA/TO) are still rebuilding and not considered contenders. Washington makes sense and have the pieces that we need(Johansson/Forsberg/Brouwer/Beagle/etc) to probably get the deal done.

Holtby in net for the Caps, while Pens counter with Vokoun.

I highly doubt that McPhee is entertaining the idea of trading probably their best young defenseman when it is defense and goaltending that they need. They have a plethora of young forwards, ie Johansson, Forsberg, Wilson, rights to Kuznetsov that I am sure is what McPhee would put on the table plus a goalie and a vet (Brouwer?), kind of what we need. We are not desperate for a defenseman, we have a very serviceable 3 pairing defense core that isn't that desperate for fixing other than a PP quarterback in which Carlson is not a specialist at.

I would be surprised if G and G have much clue when it comes to scouting goalies so its probably the skaters they are there to see.

As deal for Lu probably involves

Neuvirth

+

1 of their young assets

Carlson
Alzner
Johansson
Forsberg
etc.

+

Swaping of a more vet forward (i.e Raymond, Hansen, Higgens, Lappy etc)

Ward
Brower
Chimera
Laich
Fehr

etc.

Laich, and either or of Neuvirth or Holtby for Luongo? How is that good for us? More bottom 6 talent in which we have an abundance of and a back up goalie for Luongo?

I think you need to put an end to the Carlson dream, Potatoe. Alzner is OK I guess, but has ZERO offense to his game. You think Tanev is bad. Forsberg, a vet and a goalie is what I'd be asking. Top 6 forward potential is what we need. Johansson is decent but very limited offensively, he would make for a good 3rd line centre I guess.

Probably correct. I

Mentioned Carlson because hes their best young player and a guy Gillis apparently has all ready tried to trade for.

Trading a forward makes way more sense for Washington.

LOL have you even seen him play.

Johansson skates like the wind and has a good shot. He made a good NHL team at 19 and then put up 46 points as a 20 year old. That is as good of a trend as you could expect from a guy taken out of the top5.

He is an excellent young forward.
