Les rumeurs persistent à son sujet, mais je me demande bien quel joueur les Alouettes pourraient céder pour transiger.  Le premier nom qui me vient à l'esprit est Bear Woods.  

Premièrement, Woods commande un bon salaire.  C'est donc une façon de minimiser l'impact de celui d'Olafyoye.  Deuxièmement, Jared Koster a impressionné l'an dernier et il pourrait être dans la même position que Woods l'était à son arrivée à Montréal.  Plus jeune, moins cher, l'équipe pourrait décider d'opérer la transition à sa position.  Troisièmement, les Lions ont perdu les services de Bighill et un gars comme Woods pourrait leur permettre de garder l'efficacité de leur excellent contingent de secondeurs.

Ce serait triste dans une certaine mesure, mais il me semble un joueur qui pourrait satisfaire à plusieurs enjeux d'une telle transaction.  Non que je souhaite le départ de Woods, au contraire, mais on peut envisager qu'il représenterait une valeur à la mesure de celle que les Alouettes veulent avoir.

PS.  J'ai écrit cette rubrique parce que je suis un peu mal à l'aise avec la catégorie fourre-tout "discussion 2017".  À force de tout y inclure, on finit par entremêler trop de fils de sujets différents.  Une pluralité de rubriques permet de mieux regrouper les conversations et les poursuivre.  Mais, ce n'est que mon opinion.

Selon ce qui est/a été  écrit/dit par des journalistes, les Lions de BC veulent se départir de Olafioye à cause de son salaire élevé; je comprendrais mal qu'on veuille obtenir Bear Woods quant celui si gagne autant -à moins que son salaire ait été réduit- sinon plus que Olafioye; deuxièmement, Bear Woods est un secondeur intérieur et BC n'en n'a pas de besoin,car ils ont Eliminian; d'après moi, ils devraient être plus intéressés à un joueur comme Koster, qui peut jouer comme secondeur extérieur.

Strictement au point de vue monétaire il y aurait une certaine logique, même si un grand risque, de se départir de Woods et donner la chance à Koster ou Plésius.

Until we know who Wally is after.... Its all speculation.

One guys says no way its Adams, you don't think it makes sense its Woods.

Its very possible this deal never materializes. Obviously an agent or a GM leaked this to the press for a reason. From my perspective it would be logical for Jovan's agent to feel out other GM's to see what his client would be worth on the market and it would be to the advantage of any  of these GM who would like a crack at Jovan to make this deal as difficult as possible. All you need is a dupe in the media :)
Everything I write is just an opinion formed from various sources. Some more reliable than others, it is expressed as a composite of facts, innuendos, emotions, personal experiences and complete fabulation into a gumbo for entertainment purposes alone.

Woods is probably Montreal's best player.  Doubt they'd want to trade him.

But he "can't" feel out other teams without the Lions permission.
But it is as you said all speculation; Wally may just be using it as leverage to re-work the co0ntract and stay with the Lions.
Let's  not confuse FACTS with OPINIONS

Farhan Lalji from earlier today:


Talks between Alouettes, Lions, and Jovan Olafioye are ongoing.  Kavis Reed says they've done their homework & are hopeful, but nothing imminent.

....Kavis is very wise to tread carefully when dealing with that ol fox Wally...For some reason he always ends up on the winning end of deals...I hope Reed doesn't over pay for a guy it appears 'could' be released anyway...Seems odd nothing has been done since this was announced a few weeks ago...Someone getting cold feet maybe????
...one of the most integral parts overlooked in conversation....is to hear what\'s NOT being said....Anonymous

By getting Foucault for Jovan this would allow Wally to target other positions in the draft. This is a deep class at Dline and linebacker. Wally is going to make out like a bandit with two first round picks and three in the top 15 picks. That's going to give him at least 4 good young Canadians.

Probably waiting until after the National CFL Combine to make the deal.  Perhaps there are draft picks involved.  So, Wally Buono just wants to see what is possible with the Als pick acquired in this trade (along with Foucault) before pulling the trigger.  

I am just kidding, or maybe not.

C'est probablement dans la poche puisque les LCF a publié un message sur le sujet sur Twitter.  Quand la ligue relaye ce genre d'avant-nouvelle, c'est que la nouvelle s'en vient.

(Si je savais comment relayer le lien ici, je le ferais.)

From Rick Dhaliwal?:


Hearing BC Lions would get a starter and neg list player from Als for Olafioye if he gets new contract from Montreal.

Revenant à cette option, je me demande quel partant serait en cause?  Blake?  Cox?  Johnson?  Bowman?  Lewis? Woods?

Hearing if Olafioye can't agree to terms with Alleouttes, there are 1-2 other teams interested in trading for him.

 Rick Dhaliwal? @DhaliwalSports  37m37 minutes ago
Only thing holding up #BCLions trading OL Jovan Olafioye to Alleouttes is Olafioye getting new contract from Als.

CFL News? @CFL_News  32m32 minutes ago
Two main bidders for David Foucalt are #BCLions & the #Riders according to @JdeMontreal. #CFL #AlsMTL

Thanks to @Doc_Dave for sig

okie

I believe Foucault would be labeled as a draft choice rather than a neg list player.  So if that is correct, Foucault would be the starter Rick Dhaliwal? is talking about.

okie

Didier Orméjuste posted that the trade would be Jovan Olafioye + player in exchange for David Foucault + player.

HfxTC

Vernon Adams and David Foucon
Sask: for Derrick Dennis + ???? Gaydosh, Henoc , Demski, Baggs , 1st rounder

BC: Jovan Olafioyle + ????

Has to be a Canadian coming back in that trade. At this point I'm not feeling very optimistic at all. Reed is in over his head with Wally and Murphy.
