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.


OK, maybe you're right, for some reason I'm stuck on Forsberg cause maybe his ceiling might be higher. I honestly see a multi-player deal here. If Johanson comes this way, maybe Schroeder goes that way cause with Johanson and then Gaunce coming up, where does Schroeder fit in? That way we might be able to get them to toss in Wilson. Can you imagine Wilson and Kassian bearing down at you on the forcheck? Carlson could happen if we threw back that way Tanev but I like Tanev.

If we could get them to take Ballard and somehow get Carlson back, we finally get that elusive, 3 right handed defenseman to go with lefties Hamhius, Garrison and Edler. But I think I'm dreaming.

If you're getting Carlson back then I reckon the add ons would be Bieksa and Tanev going the other way.

So...

Carlson, Johansson, Brouwer and their backup

for

Luongo, Bieksa and Tanev

I would!

The interesting fact is that both Washington goalies are RFA's at the end of the year and they don't have any budding superstar goalies in their system...i wonder how mad Dale Tallon would be if Luongo ended up in Washington..

This is the guy you were slobbering all over as the player Mike Gillis should have drafted instead of Jordan Schroeder, right?

Wash could be a good fit all around. They have aspirations to compete, they've got young assets, especially up front and a young goalie to spare that would be worth acquiring, the owner is not averse to long contracts, has dough to spare anyway, and has no interest in bottom dwelling, and for Luongo it is a potentially competitive team in a city that is a short flight to Fla.

MG is such a kidder. He lets it slip that he has a deal he could pull the trigger on, dependent upon a team moving a player first. But he says he hasn't decided if trading Luongo is in the best interests of the team at this point, for what has been offered yet. Then he flys to Washington for the fun of it, knowing he will be spotted and the internet would explode with rumours. All the while Philly is going fuck no, not to Washington please, we need them to be worse than us so we can make the playoffs. Meanwhile he is just playing around because he finally got twitter in the off season and he is addicted to it. He is making twitter explode and loves it.

Meanwhile back at the ranch Luongo gets his 4th consecutive start. :D :D

Whether or not a deal actually happens with Washington, that's some serious mind-fracking with other teams who might be interested but aren't willing to pony up for Lu.

Haha, the situation and events are rather amusing on their own, but this is VERY amusing if this is a calculated troll on MG's part.

The Gillis is definitely in the drivers seat now,Wash.,Philly.,Fla.,and TO all in the mix,lou is playing great,and solid reasons to not even make a deal until off-season.
Being a canuck fan you know it could go sideways at any given moment,but it's looking very promising right now.

Look around the league, there are a lot of teams with absolute shit goaltending right now who'd salivate at the thought of having the kind of backstopping that Lu put on display tonight.

Even if you were right and we can't get Bozak why in the fuck would you give up Lu for anything close to or worse than him? Weigh that against what Lu's doing for us now and it makes perfect sense why Gillis is holding on to him.


I get the impression that TO wanted to offer Bozak straight up and GMMG turned them down

Lately it has occured to me that winning the Cup WITH lou this year would be beyond a story book ending. This last year seems to have put real steel in his spine and he is handling an enourmous amount of pressure every second he leaves his home. This is a short season and I think we are going to need both Ginger and Lou. I have not seen Lou look this good in some while and I also notice he is more humble. At this point, unless we get a high draft pick for this year, I do not see the point in trading him at all.

Also I gotta say Schroeder is looking decent at this point. A little scoring might give him some confidence.

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?


<cough> <cough> I agree with RD. this is a pointless trade. I'd make the deal, but they would have to take Ballard for salary, and throw in Alzner and a pick. Or something more, at least.
The Cup is soooooo ours!!!!!!!
