I understand that Florida doesn't have as much money as the rest of the league but in what world is Jovo or Upshall incentive enough to trade a 1st, and multiple prospects for Luongo when it's clear there are only a few teams that will take him?
Also, players who are bought out can be resigned by other teams and the Panthers - in this example - would only have to pay the difference. If they resigned Jovo - for example - then Vancouver would only pay the difference on the contract.
Hardly a good deal for the Panthers. Not shockingly though. I can't wait till
Vancouver fans get it through their head that Luongo won't return a 1st, a blue chip prospect ++.
It will be a great day!
The deal he had was cap dump, bottom-6/bottom pairing player, one prospect(only one of which might be considered blue chip), and a 1st.
I also think he was saying we could acquire Upshall or Jovanovski then amnesty them ourselves.
Either way, I think if he goes to Florida, it will be something like Petrovic, Matthias, 2nd.
Florida simply doesn't have a need for him, and if Luongo does end up in Florida it's because no one else wants him. Which I don't think is the case, but it's still a possibility.
