How they end up returning nothing is different... In one, the player is an UFA... In the other, the player is being argued to be worthless...
But the result is the same... The player helps for the playoffs, and then is off the team for zero return...
Is getting nothing in return a perfect outcome? Of course not... Luongo helping for a playoff run and then getting something of real value for Luongo would be perfect... But I'm personally prepared to let Luongo go for nothing, (if it means helping for a cup run) although I don't think Luongo would return nothing... I'm not necessarily looking for perfect... Just
for the Canucks to win a cup... and Luongo is perfect enough to help (therefore, if the return isn't also perfect enough to help, I'd much rather Luongo stay)... I understand Luongo has warts... but that doesn't affect his value
to the Canucks
... Everything being argued why Luongo should be worth pennies on the dollar
does not apply
to the Canucks... As Gillis said, Luongo is welcome on this team...
