The moment CBA is agreed, it's going to be the wildest week in the history of NHL with GMs trying to make their team ready for new CBA rules.
Vancouver is probably the biggest hotspot for action. They get bigger cap advantage by buying out Luongo (vs. Ballard) but it costs them more in terms of actual dollars, don't know how much the ownership cares about actual dollars though.
If they buy-out Ballard, Gillis must have a strong belief in being able to trade Luongo without taking too much cap space in return, I don't know if that's possible. If they buy out Ballard, it must be assumed that Gillis has already a deal in place for Luongo. Apart from Toronto, are there any teams who can take on Luongo's contract (cap space + actual salary) AND needs a goalie badly? So if Burke doesn't want to trade for Luongo, what options are there?
I'm already excited and I have a feeling that the boards will explode when Gillis makes his moves, whatever they are.
