from Pierre LeBrun of ESPN,
A source told me Friday morning that there was finally traction on the Luongo front but still nothing imminent. And my understanding is that the Panthers and Canucks have kept alive a dialogue. It’s the deal that makes the most sense, especially as I pointed out yesterday if Jose Theodore is willing to move his no-trade clause to go to Vancouver. Luongo wants to be a Panther again, Florida can use the upgrade in goal and the Canucks can divest itself of the $53.3 million left on Luongo’s deal, although certainly for this trade ever to happen, player contracts would have to go the other way as well to make it financially viable for the Panthers.
On the Yandle front, the Coyotes would need a home-run deal. They’re not shopping him. They’re listening. Bobby Ryan? That’s going to be oh-so intriguing. The Ducks could really gum up the works on Columbus by offering up a star winger with a way more cap-friendly contract compared to Nash’s. I believe Anaheim listens long and hard and ultimately deals him.
