via Aaron Portzline tweets, Told by very good source #Canucks G Roberto Luongo has - to this point—declined to waive no-trade clause to go to #Blackhawks or #Leafs.
Only place Luongo is willing to be traded, as of today, is back to the Florida #Panthers.
If you are not aware, Luongo’s wife is from south Florida and still has family there.

It has been chanted. He has been used as the scapegoat many times, and it looks like the fans in Vancouver will finally get what they want, well what they want when they are losing at least. Canucks management has been entertaining offers for their All-Star goalie, Roberto Luongo.Many thought Luongo would be traded leading into this year’s Draft. Well, the Draft has come and gone...
The Canuck many Bruins fans despise the most won't be wearing Vancouver colors anymore. No, Roberto Luongo hasn't been traded yet. And how could Bruins fans truly hate Luongo? His ability to motivate Tim Thomas in last year's Stanley Cup Final, not to mention his own sieve-like netminding in the three games at the Garden, were instrumental in Boston winning its first...
Two former Vancouver Canucks made it to the Hockey Hall of Fame today.
Now while I hardly consider Mats Sundin a "former Canuck" I guess this time that is fine.
In my opinion though the Canucks dropped the ball this time. There should have been seperate press releases.
That much is obvious isn't it?
I digress....here is the release.
Let the Schultz-waltz begin
July 1 begins a bit early this year as Justin Schultz is now officially a free agent.
The former second-round pick of the Anaheim Ducks jumped through his final loophole Sunday night after de-registering from the University of Wisconsin back in May now finds himself the prettiest girl in the school to 30 would-be suitors.
In a year when UFA defencemen...
Earlier this afternoon, Aaron Portzline, a reputable reporter for the Columbus Blue Jackets tweeted the following: Now, if it were any of the make believe “sources” a.k.a “Donkey’s” such as the comical @HockeyyInsiderr or @NHLSourcesSay twitter accounts, then one would kibosh this notion of Roberto Luongo to the Chicago Blackhawks immediately. But [...]
from Damien Cox of The Spin, There’s one card Burke could play, one that would turn relations between the two clubs downright ugly.
The Leaf GM could lay down a huge, multi-year, multi-million offer sheet next Monday for the other Vancouver goalie, 26-year-old restricted free agent Cory Schneider, the Canucks goalie every team would rather get if they had a choice.
Hey everyone, Mitch here. Rob was crazy enough to give me some admin control so I could publish my own posts. Once you get past the grammatical errors I think we’ll get along just fine. Today I’m going to profile Dennis Wideman.
Name: Dennis Wideman
Size: 6’0″, 200 lbs
Why the Canucks might want him: Wideman might be one of the more underrated UFA defencemen on the...
Per a press release this AM from the team website of the Vancouver Canucks we've learned that former Winnipeg Jets forward Scott Arniel one of the most sought after coaches and is back in charge of his old team.
Only now the Manitoba Moose are in a new city.
The Canucks announced today that Arniel has been named as Coach of the Canucks AHL affiliate Chicago...
Vancouver, B.C. – The Vancouver Canucks, in conjunction with the Chicago Wolves, announced today that Scott Arniel has been named as Head Coach of the Canucks AHL affiliate Chicago Wolves.
“We are thrilled to have Scott return to our organization,” said Mike Gillis, Vancouver Canucks President & General Manager. “He has had a large impact on the development of a number...
I’m starting to regret calling this the “UFA of the Day” because some days we don’t have a UFA, and other days (like today), we have two! Well here at RobTheHockeyGuy, we pass the savings onto you. Today I’m focusing on one of the most intriguing and highly sought after UFAs to be: Justin Schultz.
Name: Justin Schultz
Size: 6’1″, 185 lbs
Why the Canucks might...
For some reason I couldn't find a similar picture of Sundin...
Shanahan was up for the Hockey Hall of Fame this year and I haven't wrote about it, because, well, I figured I'd get to it when he was inducted. Because of course he'd be inducted right? Going against the likes of Bure and Sundin, talented guys but ones who never won anything, Shanny and Sakic were...
Leafs all-time leading scorer and former team captain Mats Sundin has been named to the Hockey Hall-of Fame this afternoon.
Sundin enters the Hall along with Joe Sakic, Pavel Bure and Adam Oates.
Power forward Rick Nash still belongs to the Columbus Blue Jackets. Goaltender Roberto Luongo remains the property of the Vancouver Canucks. Defenseman Keith Yandle is a Phoenix Coyote.The New Jersey Devils still have the negotiating rights to pending unrestricted free agent Zach Parise. Similarly, the Nashville Predators kept the rights to potential UFA Ryan Suter.Will these players...
So with the rest of the draft weekend going down pretty quietly and Roberto Luongo and Rick Nash staying put (for now), the Canes aggressive move to land Jordan Staal clearly goes down as the blockbuster of the draft.
I am on record from shortly after the trade as generally liking the deal. You can check out the details if you wish.
So after a couple days of let it sink it...
