Plain as day to NHL prognosticators and insiders but apparently not to armchair GMs here

Gillis was on TV a while back at a golf event saying he was fielding calls almost daily about Luongo and my friend and I both looked at each other and said the equivalent of 'doubt that' to each other. Maybe he is, but you can be sure the GM on the other end knows he's in the driver's seat
Gillis says what he means, does what he says, and sticks to it. This isnt Burke, who uses the media to spread confusion and pump his own ego.
