Guarantee me that Luongo will have more value if we wait until next year. He'll be a year older, another year removed from being a true starter and we'll be another year beyond our ideal window to win.
I don't see it. Maybe he holds his value, hell maybe it even slightly goes up, but what do you really think will change other than another year going by?
In my opinion, if we get a shortened season it is a benefit to us. We NEED to go for it and that might just mean taking less that what some of you seem to think we might get. If Luongo was truly as coveted as some think, a deal would have been done before the lockout. Nobody however was willing to take that big of a chance on him.
