I don't know why you are surprised. I only put variables out there since more than the Leafs are potential destinations.
I stated reasons I think Gillis has to trade Luongo and that Lu has more control than most people predict.
I stated other reasons (for the Leafs perspective) why Burke has other options available to him.
That's all. I don't get why people are assuming my two posts meant that Vancouver is screwed and can be taken advantage of? I meant to point out some valid realities that exist in the current circumstances. Perhaps had I posted what I thought Lu's value was than not many would be up in arms?
[depending on circumstances], a potentially higher
1st round pick in 2014
[exchange], a B Prospect like
and a short term cap dump in
is pretty good value for both sides so I am glad we agree.
Vancouver picks up some useful upgrades [current and futures] from Toronto but not at the expense of Toronto's young assets, retainable core pieces or 1st in 2013. Toronto upgrades with Lu. Win ,win.
