I'd take a decent offer any day from Chicago over some of the offers posted so far.

Gillis has said numerous times there's not a single team in the league he wouldn't consdier dealing with, as long as it makes us a better team. Simply put, if I were GM right now, I would trade Luongo for a package like Hemsky + 1st.

You'd have to put up a similar offer to get Luongo. We're not going to just give him away. And even if we did we'd send him to Florida long before TO.
Maybe you dont understand the concept of trading a player. It takes two teams who want to make a deal that benefits both parties. As much as several Cannucks fans would like to see Lou in Florida, Tallon and the Panthers have to have a need to aquire him. Simply trading Lou makes the Cannucks better, by clearing cap space, in what looks to be an inevitable cap reduction for the enitre league.
