He talk was in charge of player development and was the GM of the Monarchs. Everything I heard was that he was hugely important.

I just can't believe that a front office he's involved in would acquire Andrew Macdonald for a 3rd round pick and a 2nd in next year's deeeeeeeeep draft.

Because Paul Holmgren is making moves to save his job. The job that Hextall will be promoted to.

If they sign him its the best trade of the deadline. A top 4 D man for nothing and nothing. that's a good deal.

Hmm. I think Macdonald is getting overplayed on a crap team and is really a solid bottom pairing guy...

If so they over played by nothing. As a Nuck's fan you must not value draft picks.

I mean that he's getting a lot of minutes by virtue of being one of the more competent guys on the Isles, but he's really not that great. Like, not 4-5 million great.

Well he'll get that by virtue of UFA. The only way to avoid market value is to offer a Nmc . but only idiots do that.

Happy for Luongo, sad to see Gillis mismanage the two best goalies we've had. Pretty surprised we got two assets back of some value. But I basically stopped caring when they dealt Schneider.

And for all the shitstorm he's created, at least Gillis can read the writing on the wall. We aren't going to be Calgary, so there's that.

That's what Torts signaled for me. Terrible for hockey, great for entertainment.

And lost in all the Gillis bashing and Luongo mistreatment and talk about how it would hurt signing UFAs is at least he found Luongo his preferred destination.

I can't tell who is to blame more: Luongo or Gillis.

On the one hand, Gillis didn't trade Schneider when Schneider had high value and Gillis has long ago signed Luongo to a lifetime deal.

On the other hand, after playing like dogshit, Luongo immediately after being eliminated by the Kings, only one fucking year after a fucking 15 playoff win season, said he wants to be traded. Hold on, let's grab the actual quote:

[INDENT]"It's going to be what's best for the team," said Luongo. "Whatever scenario that is, I'm okay with it - whether that involves me being here or not is okay. We've got a lot of potential in this locker room, there's a great core of guys, and the chance to do something special."

"They've got a guy [Schneider] here that is going to be a superstar in this league for the next 10, 12, 15 years," said Luongo. "It is a business and that's the way it goes. I loved being here the last six years. I think my career has really taken off and we did some incredible things. If I'm here in the future, then great. If I'm not, that's good also."

"I don't want to be one of those guys that will stand in the way of anything, I always want to put the team ahead of me and not be one of those selfish guys," said Luongo. "There haven't been any decisions made, but over the course of the next little while we'll talk to Mike (Gillis) and make that decision."
[/INDENT]

Luongo then did what was worst for the team: refused every trade (like he said he wouldn't) that wasn't to Florida until it had to be Schneider going, then wouldn't man up to his millionaire responsibility by playing for the team he signed his life away to.

So, sure, fuck Gillis, but FUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUCK Luongo. I hope he gets shelled in Florida again but had his confidence destroyed by us and turns out to be a sub-0.900 goaltender.

Great job, Toronto Sports Network - 12 months ago Luongo was a toxic asset that either had to be bought out or sent to Toronto for a young backup and draft picks, and now Luongo was not traded for enough assets.

If only Phil Kessel did this much backtracking on the ice.
