Roberto Luongo's agent, Gilles Lupien, told a local Vancouver radio station that he's heard nothing about the rumour that there is a deal in place to send Luongo to the Toronto Maple Leafs once a new CBA agreement is reached.

Lupien added that he hasn't had any discussions with Canucks GM Mike Gillis since June, and that no Vancouver official has approached him or Luongo about waiving his no-trade clause in the scenario that he is dealt to Toronto. Even if it's not the Leafs, Luongo is likely to be traded once the lockout ends, as Corey Schneider looks ready to take over the Canucks' starting goaltender spot.
