Remember, this is a guy who could've had a 26-year old Mike Richards for Kulemin & Kadri, a player who embodies basically everything he was boasting about -- truculence, beligerence, pugnacity, leadership, and who also happened to fill the glaring hole at #1C. He turned it down.

If an unwillingness to part with core pieces means that another team's offer for Luongo is better, then so be it.
Great post. I agree.
