Notes of The Day

  • We start off with Luongo talk!
    • TSN's James Duthie is reporting that Luongo to submit a list with teams he will be willing to waive his NTC for.
    • Sportsnet's Dan Murphy is reporting that the Lightning are in the list.
    • MANY, MANY people in the know are agreeing that the Leafs are on the list.
    • Lots of rumors that in his exit interview Luongo has asked to be traded.
    • James Murphy of the Globe and Mail thinks that Luongo isn't worth too much with his age and his contract being an issue. Maybe a mid 1st rounder or a prospect?
  • Jimmy Murphy of ESPN believes Tim Thomas will be traded in the offseason.
  • Wings Tomas Holmstrom on retiring,  “I love the game, I would love to play three, four more years,” Holmstrom said. “It’s so much fun to come to the rink and everything. It’s just if the body can take it one more year or two more years. There’s lots of wear and tear on the body. Mentally, the last couple of years, you’ve got to go through the soreness, aches and pain, and it can be pretty tough during the regular season.” (Source: Detroit Free Press)
  • Damien Cox of the Toronto Star has said that the Leafs were given an option at the trade deadline for either Carter Ashton or Steve Downie in exchange for Keith Aulie. However, the main factor in choosing Ashton was that Downie is an RFA this year and is expecting more than $3 Million a year.
