I also find it extremely unlikely that Gillis will waive Luongo and get nothing in return over a less than fair offer from FLA/TOR. It would create bad karma among players as well. Players don't forget when an organization mistreats fellow players.

Edmonton seriously jumping into the mix definitely complicates things from a Toronto perspective and all but eliminates the panthers from the equation, because it seems obvious that Tallon is only looking for a bargain.
While I understand it is possible that Edmonton could make an offer for Luongo, I would be shocked if that's true. I know current Oilers management has done some stupid things in the past, but this would take the cake.
