Canucks assistant G.M.: Roberto Luongo trade could happen at draft

Friday June 22nd, 2012

It certainly isn't news that Vancouver Canucks goaltender Roberto Luongo is on the block. And although James Mirtle of Toronto's The Globe and Mail writes that the Maple Leafs remain the only "plausible trading partner for the star netminder," Vancouver assistant general manager Laurence Gilman tells a different story.

Gilman said that G.M. Mike Gillis has heard from "numerous" teams. “There is interest that’s in place right now,” Gilman said, according to Jason Botchford of Vancouver's The Province. “It is conceivable that we could make a deal this weekend.”
