Didn't Luo say something along the lines of he looks forward to being traded? Pretty sure he said last year about he would prefer to go to Florida as there's family there etc. Either way I'm sure you can agree that Luo feels he's a number 1 goalie, and I just don't see a backup or hybrid situation working with him. I could be 100% wrong of course.. just saying plus him having a known value right now I think makes more sense for Van to get rid of him sooner rather then later.
