To this point he has never said he's not interested in Luongo he always gives the "you can't talk about it(tampering)" line. Plus you add that Nonis had him in Vancouver, And I also have a lot respect and belief in the story John Shannon put out there a few weeks ago. http://www.sportsnet.ca/hockey/nhl-l...o_maple_leafs/

Also it should be said he's a pretty damn good goalie. The only problem is the size of the contract, And equating the value of him taking everything into consideration.
I am still in the middle ground for him, I hope Gillis realizes if we are trading him then they aren't going to get good pieces. However I do see the point you are trying to convey as Nonis was the man who got him there. It is a ballsy move for sure lol.
