Silly rumours spread by silly rumourmongerers...

Sportsnet's John Shannon stated his belief that a trade sending Luongo from Vancouver to Toronto was “all but done” and was merely awaiting the implementation of a new collective bargaining agreement.

By Friday, sources from both clubs were denying the “Luongo-to-Toronto” rumors, but Shannon stood by his story and claimed his source for the rumor was “reputable” and insisted the trade would be contingent upon what is contained in the next CBA.

For now, all of this is merely speculation and both clubs continue to deny the rumors, but that won't kill off the anticipation of Luongo heading to Toronto when the lockout ends.


Rumours are rumours and speculation is speculation

Only the truth is the truth. :mex:

Thats the story, but it isn't sexy enough for the media pundits to report on.


The Great Strangelove is the only "media pundit" to suggest Water Boy WILL buy Lou out next year

... although the Great Strangelove can still see Lou traded to Forida if Tallon decides to get real.

Unfortunately he also deals in BS.. "No, because Lou is still a Top Ten goalie" ??? Stats don't seem to agree with you ..
Lou hasn't been in the top 10 for 2 years .. last year ranked 15 or 16 in GAA and SV%..
Career stats have him 10 percentage points better than Gigure in regular season play and 10 below Gigure in the playoffs.. Giguere is also sporting a Vezina and a Stanley cup ring.. and isn't top 10.. his salary ? last year 1.5 mill with the AV's..
MG traded away our best goaltender for a pick.. :( and kept a guy that doesn't want to be in Vancouver.. Goodbye to the upcoming season.. Lou will not play that well and we got no help for this season.. With the "new" division I doubt we win the division and may not even make the playoffs..

The Canucks are unlikely to win the division but they will be in the playoffs if the team's top players stay healthy.

I'm looking forward to the Canucks being in a new division. It'll be some tough sledding for a while, but I think the better regular season competition will prep them better for the playoffs. I agree, I don't see them winning the division, but I suspect we'll get into the playoffs. The Canucks will simply have to be harder to play against in a division with the Kings, Sharks, Ducks etc., if we are to have any success.

I'm excited by the notion of having new up-an-comers cracking our line-up but like some others have surmised on here already, it's going to take time, probably up to 2 to 3 years before we see them make permanent roster placement. The timing is interesting too when ya consider that the shelf life of the Sedin's could coincide with this. Between now and then, the only conceivable way that Gillis could possibly improve the team is thru trades. I'm one of those that isn't particularly enamoured with Gillis' prowess in the trade realm... so I'm kinda thinking that the team we see this year is as good as we're going to be until the new 'crop' has their day. Again like others have stated, we'll probably make the playoffs (which is good!), but gone are the days of presidents trophy season performances. It's great though to have an understanding that there is hope for the future. IF we still had Schneider here and lost Lou thru some avenue, we would n't be sitting as pretty for the future - Bo Harvat looks to be as solid and promising as they come. So for this I say, "Thanks CS".

Lou hasn't been in the top 10 for 2 years .. last year ranked 15 or 16 in GAA and SV%..


In 2011-12 Roberto Luongo was Top Ten among Starting NHL Goaltenders in SV% (42+ starts).

In 2011-12 Roberto Luongo was Top Twelve among Starting NHL Goaltenders in GAA (42+ starts).

In 2011-12 Roberto Luongo was hampered by an "upper body injury" for the first two months of the season.

In 2011-12 Roberto Luongo was statistically Top Three among Starting NHL Goaltenders from December-April.

The Great Strangelove has decided to write-off the mere 20 games RL started in 2012-13 for obvious reasons.

All that proves is that perhaps YOU wanna get jiggy with Giggy.

Check this out:

Roberto Luongo has THE BEST SAVE PERCENTAGE IN THE HISTORY OF THE NHL (736+ starts). :mex:

That's not Top Ten, that's Top ONE!!!

All-time!

Right!

Hmmm, wonder if Lou will hit 1000 games played. :shock:

That, whilst continuing to keep his sv% ridiculously high, combined with a Cup or two

.... and he'd be a shoe-in for the Hall of Fame! :thumbs:

Yet look how he gets treated by many here at the Goalie Graveyard. :hmmm:

Yours truly asked the question at Central in 2006:

"Will Roberto Luongo break the curse of Vancouver's Goalie Graveyard?"

Perhaps he yet will amirite Dave? :mex:

Luongo was already dead and buried - so now I guess it's the Zombie Graveyard...!

As a man who deals exclusively in common sense, how sensible is it for the Canucks to get one more year out of an already irritated and declining 34-year-old Luongo only to buy him out after a "lame duck" season?

Furthermore, how is it sensible for Florida to then take on a soon to be 35-year-old puck stopper to work with a young nucleus destined for...an 8th places finish, at best?

It's not that I doubt the great SL's reasons, it is that I do not understand them. As I am quite simple minded you see.

Unless, you THINK that the great GMMG knows something he won't admit, that the Canucks aren't close and won't be close any time soon and that he is merely biding his time to rebuild through the draft.

Ahem...
Exhibit A


Exhibit B


Exhibit C


Strangler, you can parade all the stats around you like but lets face it...the guy sucks when it counts the most.

As an aside, since you have proven he has the lowest save % in the history of the NHL, do you honestly, and I mean honest to yourself as well as everyone here, feel Luongo should be mentioned anywhere as being even remotely close to one of the games greatest goaltenders?

Seriously now...



Oh yeah and easy now...my eye socket has only just healed :lol:
