Thinking about Chicago scouting the Canucks and unless were looking at something like Kane+parts for Luongo+parts I just don't see a reason to weaken our team while addressing our best competition's biggest weakness. Kane+Saad+Crawford for Luongo+Raymond/Booth and I'm all ears - though I just don't see a team that is 14-0-3 making a change like that :-)

I can't see it either, unless a 3rd team may be involved.

Kane isn't going anywhere. The best trade we'd get is probably Sharp for Luongo straight up, I doubt they would throw in Saad for the hell of it.

Hawks could just be scouting us because we have given them some of their best competition this season so far.

-We trade Schneider for player(s) X
-We make it to the conference finals
-We face the shit hawks and proceed to watch Luongo have his 4th Chicago meltdown in 5 years.
-We've already moved CS and now know WITHOUT A DOUBT...AGAIN that Luongo just can't win it when it matters the most
-We have 9 more years to piss and moan about trading the wrong man
-RD continues his irrational anti-Gillis tirade but now it is justified and we all have to acknowledge this over and over and over again for the next 9 years

I dunno...I'll vote for the Ginger kid thanks
There is no possible scenario in which RD can end up saying "I told you so".

This is due mostly to the fact he has contradicted himself on every issue

(for example, in your scenario above, the archives are full of RD singing Lou's praises).

I think Lou gets traded by the deadline for a solid return = playoff help + player for the future.

People keep saying Luongo will get dealt at the deadline but what if the team is doing well, locked in the division and we have a legit chance of going deep. Does Luongo waive to go to a team that may not make the playoffs or does not look good to go deep? Does he say this is my chance to get out or does he say this is my chance to win a cup?

Lets not forget that little thing called a NTC.

I think most are in agreement we should/need to trade Luongo. Some feel letting Cory go is the better choice, fair enough. I think we all agree that MG needs to get the best return possible no matter when he does it. It sure would be nice to know exactly what he has been offered thus far then we could actually have an informed debate.

I think if one the playoff bubble teams want to make a serious run to get into the playoffs they have to make a move relatively soon. They can't afford to wait until the deadline. I'm think Washington and Philly here.
The only HW the Canucks need

He waives (and then waves) if it's the Panthers.

Period.

And it WILL be the Panthers.

Period.

Roberto Luongo wants to play for the Florida Panthers as soon as possible.

Roberto Luongo will very soon be playing for the Florida Panthers.

What part of this do folks not understand.

I understand . What I don't see Is negotiations from Florida. Are they just waiting for something? Trying to reduce what they give back somehow?

THIS

But given the fact their goaltending is sucking even worse than expected

... and the fact they can kiss the playoffs goodbye if they don't pull the trigger soon

.... well look for them to cave in the very near future says I.
