so many holes there...
first off he actually states that Gillis has explored options to trade Luongo?
Gillis hasn't said any such thing... he's actually said - on numerous occasions - that he wouldn't look to trade any player that has a NTC and wouldn't ask them to even waive that NTC... so either Gillis is flat out lying or the writer here is making stuff up? or Luongo has already asked Gillis to explore trade options?
not to mention bringing up Briere, again Gillis has gone on about the exact type of contract that he doesn't want to give out, but he'll acquire one as part of a deal for his franchise player?
basically, it's hard to take an article seriously when they say stuff like that, where the GM has repeatedly said the opposite...
this looks like a Flyer fan's fantasy more than anything else... dropping a contract that you would have to in order to fit Luongo (without considering that the team you are moving him to has said many many times they won't add contracts like that), while not giving up better quality assets like Richards or Carter.
