As reported by The Province a couple of weeks ago, the Canucks are making one final push to trade Roberto Luongo before Wednesday’s trade deadline.

“There are a lot of possibilities,” Luongo acknowledged Friday. “We’ll see what happens.”

Talks have picked up with teams like the Toronto Maple Leafs. But up to this point, the Leafs are trying to get Luongo for a second round pick, and maybe a prospect.

That’s not going to get it done for the Canucks who have been chasing Tyler Bozak since last May when Brian Burke first approached Vancouver GM Mike Gillis to tell him the Leafs coveted Luongo.

The Leafs apparently believe they have all this leverage because the team is doing well and has essentially made the playoffs. But a question they must ponder is how much do their chances of winning a round improve with Luongo in net instead of James Reimer?

And if they do win a round, how much money is that brining in?

The Canucks, of course, believe they still have plenty of leverage. They are convinced there will be a goalie free-for-all this summer when there will be as many as nine teams in search of a goalie.

Of course, the market is also expected to be flooded.
