    I don't see it happening before the season, by the sounds of it.I'd be cool with Kulikov + prospect + pick for an upgrade on offense, though. You know, like a Jamie Benn or something.

    Anyone know any good sites to get NHL Rumors? I'd like to track what is going on with Luongo right now but don't know a reliable source.

    For the record, even with his massive contract I'd want to trade for him unless its absolutely certain the Canucks are going to cut him at the end of the year instead of trading him.

    I think he's got a few more good years left, and he wants to play here. With the team that Tallon assembled I can see the window being relatively small to compete with the players we have now. With Luongo and one more piece I see the team possibly competing for a few years (3-4).

    The Panthers have the best farm system in hockey right now.

    But is that farm system as impressive as Pittsburgh was, or even Edmonton's? I think they need to substantially complement that youth with players who's windows of opportunity are a few years old. How much longer will Jovo play? Or even Campell at this level?

    Markstrom has a chance to be a beast, but he also can be a bust.

    Best way to keep up on hockey rumors is go to HFBoards.com and check up on the Trade Rumors and Free Agent Talk subforum. They're always the first place, and it's a collection of every site and Twitter so you don't have to do the searching.

    My point is that this year's team isn't even that good.

    The window is beyond this year.

    I don't know exactly how to compare it to the teams you mention, but there are a lot of good young players in the system.

    As for how long Jovo will play, I was hoping he'd retire before the season starts on Saturday since he's pretty terrible already. He had very little to do with the success the team had last year.

    Campbell will probably have a long career due to his style of play. Even if he regresses, he's not expected to be the team's future #1 on defense. The organization has a lot of young defensemen (Kulikov, Gudbranson, Matheson, Petrovic, etc.) who project to be good in the future. Some in the very near future.

    The team's D core is so deep that I'm actually hoping Kulikov is traded for more offense.

    If we could get him for nothing, yes. But since that's not going to happen, I give Luongo the stiff arm.

    I view Jovo as a veteran D-Man to help the younger guys focus and acclimate. His roles going to be reduced this year. How much is unknown.

    As far as the Pittsburgh/Edmonton thing, its more of a:

    Pittsburgh: Their Guys came in and immediatly contributed, making them a playoff team and a Cup Champion pretty early in their careers. Second year or so in they were competing for the cup, and I think they won in the third or fourth year.

    Edmonton: All of the talent, but they havent seemed to put it together into a playoff apperance with Eberle, Hall, Hopkins and now Yakupov and the College Kid Schaultz. Three overall #1's in three years, and the best player so far of the bunch is a 22nd round pick. Their talent base is said to be amazing I just don't really see it.

    Hopefully these picks pan out, but what if they don't? I'm afraid well see another dark age of Panthers hockey without a top goalie and a few moves.

    I'd give up a few pieces for him, remember he's makign what 6 Mill this and for three more years? I'd do it.

    What can be sent I don't know, but I see Theodore going to Vancouver no matter what, and a Defenseman.

    If they let him walk with the exception they have next year I believe he'll sign in Florida if given the choice. His Wife's family is here, so is his home and he genuinely never wanted to leave.

    If he's traded, theres no way we get him ever again. 6 Mill for 3 years, 4 mill for 3 years and 2 mill for the remaining years is not a great bargain, but in the end he might end up being worth every penny AND if he keeps his body in shape could be a bargain in the end.

    Edmonton's problem is that they have no defense/goaltending to support those young forwards you mention.

    The young forwards you mentioned are, indeed, great young players though.

    If our players turn out to be like those guys, I'd love that.
