If Gillis waits a year, there will be FEWER options (Lou's value is only going down with time, and he's already very difficult to move), unless of course he decides to move Schneider because he figures there's not really any legitimate market for Luongo
Leaf fans vastly overestimate the desperation of Mike Gillis. The Canucks have 18 players signed and almost $15 million in cap space. The only real player of significance who is unsigned is Cory Schneider. They are in no rush to get rid of Luongo, despite rampant media and fan speculation to the contrary. Gillis is not a guy who rushes anything.

I could very well be completely wrong, but somehow I get the feeling that Luongo is staying put this year.
