I'm aware of his contract, and it does decrease his value to some degree. He's still a top goaltender and many here are just lowballing. Just wait and see what Luongo fetches. If its something like Komisarek, Connolly and a 2nd or any of numerous absurdities that are being thrown around here I'll be happy to eat crow. Gillis will get way more though, especially if Toronto wants Luongo. The goalie situation is so dire Burke has not choice but to overpay.
