If another GM is willing to ante up, so be it.
Another GM wouldn't have to. We'd be better off putting him on waivers then accepting your trash. Gillis does not have to move Luongo now that the cap has stepped above $60M. So yes, he does have the strength of the draw here. Toronto's only alternative to goal - should they want an improvement - is Schneider. And guess who has him?
