At the end of the day you have an aging goalie signed for a very long time that has already said publicly that he wants out. You have an emerging young player that his RFA contract is up and probably won't sign a long term deal knowing Roberto will still be there. He doesn't want to answer those questions every day and neither does Luongo. So what do you do, qualify him and hope he doesn't walk in one year?
Not many teams want to take on that contract and with TB trading for Lindback that number just diminished by 1!
From my perspective, Van is not in a position of strength but with removing this player and getting something back in return will solidify the locker room and remove all the goalie questions.
GM can be stubborn if he wants and see this window close that he has really really quick.
