If you believe it is something that doesnt need to be addressed by Gillis at some point, shows you are delusional. Doesnt mean Lou has to be traded away for nothing, but to not acknowledge that it will have to be looked at at some point is nonsense.
I never said we'd keep both long-term, but it's perfectly feasible to keep them both for another season. Right now we're under the cap and there isn't anything that we need more cap space for. Therefore we aren't going to trade a goalie for something that doesn't help us anytime soon. What's delusional is thinking Luongo will only go to the Leafs, and will go for a pittance because we have no other choice.
There are other teams involved, and if we don't get an offer we like we can keep them both until next offseason at least. If in the unlikely event no one has made a decent offer, then maybe we'll start taking lowball proposals. But until then many Leafs fans proposals have been laughably bad.
