Wanna have some real fun? Pull up the old Luongo to Toronto threads...
Man, you and I had so many head to head confrontations in those...they seem so long ago...
Why would anyone want Marincin ? He's an AHLer at best
I still remember the Bond titles...there were so many threads we ran out of movies and moved to Beatles titles...
Again, for younger posters, we had more threads in the Trade Forum then there were Bond movies. 24 and counting...
And to think, Toronto traded less then Vancouver fans wanted for a potential starter in Andersen, and Vancouver traded both goalies and got Horvat and Markstrom. And we all thought it was the only way!
I’m going to go ahead and say this probably wasn’t worth bumping a three month old thread for.
Thank god we didn't get Lou because we wouldn't have, Marner, Nylander or Matthews today and without them Tavares probably doesn't come home.
Oh my god I forgot about him, brings memories(**** memories) but memories nonetheless
hmm must have been some recent posts deleted before mine, because I didn't bump this - just saw it at the top of this forum and replied
anyone proactively looking for marincin threads need to have their head examined lol
24 Bond titles...and i can't remember how many Beatles one..good times!!
Now who's being revisionist?
I remember a lot of Leafs fans think Luongo wasn't enough to right the ship, but as a Canucks fan I believe you're right, things may have played out very differently from here. Kessel would almost definitely still be a Leaf, and Kadri and Rielly were the rising stars, with Gardiner and Bozak still being possible pieces for the future Leafs. Phaneuf was also there.
Who did Anaheim take with the picks for Andersen though?
Would have been a different team now, that's for sure.
Well not at the time I think. What a crazy summer though.
I wonder how many MODs needed therapy after that fiasco...
But who actually wants him. Leafs defense is bad. No body wants a 567 dman from them.
I know a ton of Canucks posters stopped posting in the trade forums. It had to be even worse for anyone over seeing it I'm sure.
It's probably a big reason why Leafs fans started getting the rep they have on here...those threads got vicious.
Sam Steel and Maxiem Comtois
Well that's less impressive then I was hoping for, but still, not a bad pair of prospects. Hindsight makes that Andersen trade look a little better though.
Yeah I don't think anyone came out of that set of threads looking good though.
Friedman's reporting just keeps getting better
I have absolutely zero recollection of that.
As I'm going through mentions at work, most of it is more along the lines of Marincin is better than so-and-so, and so-and-so is a top four guy (DeHaan, Tanev and pre-trade Barrie were the popular targets). Or Marincin is playing top four minutes over someone. Or one specific advanced stat of Marincin is better than the same stat of a player fans are trying to acquire. Or that he can replace said player short term or until then end of the year.
I will eat humble pie, no one directly said he was a great top 4 player directly.
Hasn't this guy been on waivers at least two or three times? Not sure what the Leafs could possibly expect to get back for him. If he can't play on the current decimated TO blueline, it's hard to see him helping anyone else.
