But in fact he can be be traded there even if he does not waive his NTC! Let me explain.....

Lou does not have a NMC, therefore Vancouver can put him on waivers. And guess what Columbus finished last place and will have first chance to pickup anyone on waivers. So Columbus can trade with Van by sending the necessary pieces through future considerations. Vancouver puts Luo on waivers and the deal is done. Obviously this would not look good for Gillis and will therefore most likely not happen. But it is an interesting scenario to consider and does give Gillis a little more leverage because he does have the right to do this.

Not sure the value that would come back to Van......Please feel free to post proposals.
Just because you COULD do it, doesn't mean you SHOULD do it. Better to sell him on the move by explaining the value of being the starter, having a strong defense in front of you and instantly becoming the best goalie in Columbus franchise history. (and he'd never have to worry about sucking in the playoffs!)
