Very good point about the brain trust taking things over. Nonis changed the make-up of the Canucks with Luongo at the centre. He knows the impact he can have. As a result, there's no one better to evaluate what exactly to give up for Luongo than Nonis.
If Nonis is really the brain trust of the deal then we may get what majority of fans are seeking for. Lots of people would say we won the Luongo deal w/ Big Bert going the other way. Had Bert not done what he did in doubt in my mind that was a fair trade.
