I have read that Nonis mentioned offer sheeting wouldnt be totally out of the question. That would be a very smart thing to do ! If Gillis wont budge enought on a Lu deal...offer Schneider knowing that Gillis will have to match, if not we get Schneider, if he does it opens the door for Lu. Only problem is doing that would probably cut Brian off from landing Luongo. That Javr kid, thats amazing that he reported the deal before TSN though sportsnet had it before TSN did and that is always the case LOL; I dont know if a deal is 90% done but I could see Gillis and Burke holding "what if talks," I read the Insider and they mentioned that Gillis was meeting one final time with Lu to get his final stance on the situation this week; that doesnt mean Gillis and Burke havent talked about a deal, or even that they may have one close or done, and maybe Gillis is going to say to Lu "thanks for the effort I have a solid deal, and I want to take it, you would be headed to Toronto...just giving the heads up, since you are a class act guy and I respect you !"
If I was the GM and trading a character guy I would definately do that, no rush on finalizing the deal, if it is the only one on the table that he would take.
One thing is for sure, between now and July 1st I think we'll see one of these; #1 goalie acquired, #1 center aquired Justin Schultz after July 1st is a gimme basically and then possibly Nash acquired (if Burke cant get the center, or he pulls his magic again).
