Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the CP via the Globe and Mail,

Goaltender Roberto Luongo says the trade that sent him to the NHL Vancouver Canucks came as surprise since he believed he had a long-term deal worked out with the Florida Panthers. "I'm really sad because I didn't think this was going to happen," Luongo said Saturday in a telephone conference call. "We made great strides yesterday. I thought we were going to get something long term. I was surprised this whole deal went down."

The Key

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Bob McKenzie of TSN,

The key to the deal for the Vancouver Canucks is signing Luongo to a long-term contract. If they can do it this summer, the trade is obviously well worth it. If they cannot, the Canucks gave up all those assets for Lucas Krajicek - a guy who's still trying to establish himself as a quality NHL defenceman - and a draft pick. Now Canucks general manager Dave Nonis is confident that he can get Luongo to do what his agent Gilles Lupien would not do - sign a long-term deal before he becomes eligible to get a no-trade clause.

Oh Those Rumors

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Buffalo News,

Usually, NHL trade rumors aren't worth their salt. And while they offer little substance, they're tasty enough to pass around. Fans eat 'em up. Get this: leading scorer Maxim Afinogenov and goalie Martin Biron to the St. Louis Blues for the No. 1 overall selection. Or this: unreliable-but-potent winger Thomas Vanek to the Calgary Flames for defenseman Jordan Leopold. Sabres General Manager Darcy Regier denied both rumors, but admitted this time of year can be fun. "People on the outside seem to have more fun than the people on the inside," Regier said. "You hear some real beauties out there. And some deals that actually get done are never talked about."
