    "Potential Deal in Place [For Luongo]"

    Canucks general manager Mike Gillis suggested to the Vancouver Sun on Tuesday that trade talks surrounding goalie Roberto Luongo are picking up steam.

    "We have a potential deal in place with one team that has to do something with another player that they have and it's not who anybody thinks it is and so we have to wait. (But) we've been offered packages that don't fit what our plan is, what we need," Gillis told the Sun.

    Gillis explained how the offers have not suited the Canucks' needs.

    "(Teams would offer) excess salary coming back with a [throw-in] player who can't play in our lineup. They say, 'OK, we'll do this, but you've got to take this.' Well, we're not taking it. We've had lots of proposals like that with good pieces that can help us but the other part doesn't help us, and oftentimes they have term attached to them, so we'd just be turning around and buying out a guy.

    "I'd rather keep the guy we know, who's a good person."

    Last May, Luongo told reporters that he would be willing to waive his no-trade clause if the Canucks asked him to.

    Cory Schneider started the Canucks opener on Saturday but was pulled in favour in Luongo during a 7-3 loss to the Anaheim Ducks. Luongo got the start the next night and played the whole game in a 3-2 shootout loss to the Edmonton Oilers.

    They shouldn't get anything close to a player like Gudbranson back. They can want all they want, but Florida has the cards in their hands.

    why doesn't Florida want to roll with Markstrom? They have young talent to build around. Luongo just disrupts that. Toronto is a better fit for Lou.

    Actually all he said was "it isn't who people think it is". He didn't way whether the "who" was a player or a team. He could have been talking about a surprise player being discussed, which would be totally consistent with Gillis' practice of pulling off shock trades.

    He's returning to the NY Islanders, they are going to do a Luongo swap for DP. Just kidding. I still think it's the Panthers, time will tell.

    I think I get your meaning by this, they are gonna add all the suspecision they can to try and get a better offer from another team. This one is going to be a bread giver to the Nucks, someone is going to get milked dry, perhaps even prospect wise.
