He could have demanded a trade, but didn't knowing full well how much of a hit his wallet would take in the long run
As far as your second comment...five first round picks would have to go along with that check.
He's a restricted free agent
, how hard is that to understand?
I suppose that's why Jason Allison and Eric Lindros are NHL pyrrihas.
It really doesn't matter to GM's if you stage a holdout...if you've got the talent that Luongo has, no one's going to turn you away...
And I think that there's an excellent possibility that he's traded soon if he's made it clear to Keenan that he wants to leave.
