Roberto Luongo traded?

By Farhan Mohamed | 7:03 pm PST, Sun December 2, 2012 | Speak Up

Earlier today, this photo was taken at a Toronto sports store. Hockey broadcasters Daren Millard and Pierre McGuire reported on Vancouver’s Team 1040 that Roberto Luongo will be traded – for Nazem Kadri and Tyler Bozak – as soon as the lockout is over (whenever that will be). Is this just a desperate attempt from Maple Leafs fans to see the Canucks goaltender sent their way, or do they know something we don’t?

Edit: It looks as though it has been printed on the Toronto Maple Leafs’ third jersey, which is why it doesn’t have shoulder patches.

    that trade is terrible..

  • 604YVR

    Players can’t be traded during the lockout.

  • farhanmohamed

    I know! That’s why I said that it was reported he’d be traded “as soon as the lockout is over”.

  • VanCity12

    I am sceptical of these pictures that get posted, if they can take that picture, can they not take multiple pictures and different angles?  I also notice there are no emblems on the shoulders and the stripes are different, it is probably their 3rd jersey, but still need they need to get more shots.

  • Omnipotent

     Happy we didn’t take bad pieces in return(Mike Komisarek). Then again, you either give up pieces for Luongo or your options are Reimer/Scrivens, or roll the dice on over-the-hill guys like Turco/Roloson/Conklin.

    My apologies, only Detroit can run a ‘crappy’ goalie tandem and still win the Cup… Why? Cuz Lidstrom plays goalie on most nights…

  • Berserkser

    Lame.  Not even the same jersey.  This apparent pre-arranged trade has been talked about for the past two months.  Your a little late except adding this picture and that Kadri would be the 2nd piece going back.

     ”Is this just a desperate attempt from Maple Leafs fans to see the Canucks goaltender sent their way, or do they know something we don’t?”  Is this your way of taking a cheap shot at Leaf fans?  Please explain to me how this is a desperate attempt from the “Maple Leaf FANS”?  Are you saying a fan is running this shop, made a crappy jersey that doesn’t match the others and that will force your favourite GM (BB) to make this trade happen?

    lol lidstrom retired………

    and the stripes are different on the luongo jersey, plus no leaf patches on shoulders…FAKE.

  • Guest

    This likely isn’t a real article, but the Luongo jersey is the Leafs 3rd jersey and the JVR jersey is the Leafs home. Definitely a legit jersey.

  • Hamster

    Lame. Can’t even tell your own teams’ third jersey.

    My guess is that it’s just some guys PLAYING A JOKE – like what visiting teams do in the ACC ;)

  • Mainlander

    It’s missing the white maple leaves on the shoulders like the jersey beside it.

  • Fake

    actually yes, a fan did make that jersey. the same fan who owns the shop it’s being sold at.
