Nothing great but IMO Loungo would waive for Edm if DD was not signed this new contract.
I know you hate Dubnyk, but its pretty clear that he is our #1 goalie, not our backup. Even claiming he is our backup is wrong and foolish. Getzlaf isn't an idiot, and will know that if he signs here, its to take over Gagner's spot, not to compete with him. If Gagner is signed to 4m X 4, he is still a tradable piece, and if we had him at that price and still got Getzlaf, guess who is moved out then? Gagner. But you don't move out a decent 2nd line center so you might get a second 1st line center to sign here. You wait until the second 1st line center inks his name on the line. At his contract, Luongo would be a step backwards. He is better than Dubs, but is on a horrible contract and I wouldn't want him for nothing because of it.
