It's funny but I'd be willing to bet 98% of the people out east commenting on how good they think Luo is, or what he's worth, or how long he will be a good goalie for watch less then 5 Canuck games a year. This would be like me claiming to be an expert of making a couscous soufflé with a chestnut reduction topped a scallop broth inspired angle haired pasta stuffed pasta shell, simply because I watched a season of Hell's Kitchen.
Anyone who seriously watches the Canucks, listens to Un biased media, can read Luo's achievements would know this is one of the best goalies in the world. NOT only that, great goalies close to never hit the market. The normal return for even a marginal goalie is usually an over payment. Furthurmore Luo's cap hit is very good and below a number of other goalies in the league that aren't as good as luongo.
It's also funny how people are so concerned about how much actual dollars the owners are paying him... Like all of a sudden we have bleeding hearts for these greedy billionaire owners and we want them to Pennie pinch and not spend more then they have to. It doesn't matter to me if they're paying more for a player as long as he benefits the team.
And to end this off, even though Luo wants a change of scenery Vancouver is not a team that will commence a fire sale. They're in a position of power not weakness. They will not give away a goalie like Luo for some of the league worst teams tweener 2nd 3rd liners.
Luo should and most likely will consist of a 1st round pick, a good prospect and a depth player, and no matter how much you tell yourself Luo sucks and he's not worth more then a 2nd round pick and a happy meal, he would turn a poor team into a playoff team right away...which is more then you can say for Gardiner, a pick or whatever else...
