I disagree. If he had given Gillis the option I think he would have at least explored a Schneider trade, no? IMO it's been pretty clear that he wants out.

Luongo is an emotional guy and when things go poorly he doesn't alway's deal with it well. He ended the season on the bench watching Quick and Schneider play great and he took it hard and made a poor decision for himself. Luongo isn't going to find a better place for him than this imo. I think that makes him flaky.

We won't agree on this because I think he asked to be moved. Heading for the exit because of some adversity is not the sign of a good leader imo.

That's a leader to me.
Different people will define it different ways. Luongo has a lot of leadership qualities but is too up and down to be a great leader imo.

This situation gave him the opportunity to bail and he took it. I think there was probably something to his family situation and I'm sure this market was grinding on him. He didn't handle it very well at times and looked like it really started to wear on him.

I don't think so. Gillis never would have handled it like this if he'd have wanted him gone. Look at Hodgson.
