To be fair though I also said that Gillis doesn't have the option of going with two goalies. What I'm argiung against is people claiming that Burke has all of the leverage here. I've always claimed that neither side has all of the leverage and any deal will be fair.
To me it seems like you were arguing Burke doesn't actually want to go with Reimer/Scrivens so his only option is Luongo.
I agree going with Reimer and Scrivens is risky, but don't agree that Burke is thinking "Luongo or nothing". If he has not picked up a goalie in FA (Hedberg/Ellis) to share time with Reimer (or even back-up), then it means he is either looking for a trade or is comfortable going with the two.
If what was said is true, and Luongo has limited the trade to Florida, Gillis has lost all leverage. If it is not true we are back at square one, waiting to see which team blinks first.
