Most players aren't publicly shopped. It usually takes a phone call from a rival GM to see what an asking price "might be" for someone and then the ball can start rolling.
That didnt answer the question...i havnt heard any rumors other then on here as to what the asking price for schneider is
There hasn't been any rumors because he hasn't been shopped.
I don't even know if he will be, realistically he may not but I am just saying if there's even a slim chance he is I think the Leafs jump on it.
Luongo is not gonna happen. His cap hit is gigantic and his contract runs until he's 40 or something. Burke won't touch that with a ten foot pole.
NHL Pokemon logo's for the win.
Maple Leafs and Steelers fan for life.
Lou cap hit is front loaded it is not huge anymore...that according canuck fans i know
Listening to radio shows and what not today.. it seems as if the GM's are going to push hard in this new CBA for the one time buyout clause where the player is just cut a cheque and gone. No cap hit, no nothing. If that happens then you can bet Luongo will be bought out by the Canucks. If that happens then we should be all over Luongo. He certainly wouldn't fetch 10 years.
Thats why i suggest going after a lecavaleir or luo before it happens, because if their contract is trimmed or cut altogether then their trade price increases dramatically.
Schneider started the game last night leading to more speculation that luo will be gone in the offseason.
There havent been toronto specific deals but id be suprised if a first, schenn, and kadri isnt what starts the negotiations.
He has a caphit of 5.3m and a salary of 6.7m until he's 39. Then the last 4 years are 3.3m then 3 years of 1m.
He doesnt have a nmc so, assuming the cba stays the same and thats a big if, we could send him down.
Luo is still a good goalie, not where he once was, but still capable of stealing games here and there. He gets treated a bit unfairly in van, andit would probably be the same thing here but hes a goalie that has never had a GAA over 3 in his career playing more than 25 games in a season, and the one time he came close was with those horrible florida teams. Granted we're prolly closer to floridas talent level to vancouvers but i'd put luo at the top of my wish list only because i think the vancouver FO is begging some team to take his cap hit off their books. I just hope we're in there before steve y gets there.
Also how bout staal last night? Dudes been in fire for the last 2 gamds he has 5 goals and really stepped up when pitt needed someone to spark the team.
Would love him on this team but pitt would have to get a kings ransom for him.
One guy isn't going to make or break this team, trading our young players that still have to develop for one guy is a bit much. Why can't we just let these guys develop instead of hitting the panic button all the time. Frustration? I've been cheering for this team since I can remember, so about 25 years, I'm frustrated too. But what I get more frustrated with is constantly raping this teams roster for one guy.
