The situation dictates that Vancouver does not need to trade, because there is other player we are targeting that will use the space. This can also be referred to as opportunity cost in business terms. Right now Vancouvers opportunity cost is zero since there is no one to fill the cap space. If there is a trade for Luongo then Vancouver can fill this cap space with pieces coming back in the trade.
All I'm gonna say, that would be terrible team asset management if that was your business model.
Komi was a mistake, but not when we bought him. He played his way off the team. Komi was "suppose" to play better when we signed him. Heck I was super excited when we signed him. None of us saw his slide in play coming.
