MillarWithASave posted it over on the panthers board, but I decided to move it here as well. Its certainly big time news if true, and would all but crush any leverage the Canucks have. If its true, the Canucks have two options assuming the panthers are interested:

1) Trade him to Fla for w/e they are willing to pay.
2) Call his bluff, and hold onto him, which prevents them from spending that money elsewhere.
That is BS and wishful thinking from a FLA or T.O. fan. Luongo himself said he has given Gillis the green light to go ahead and do what is best for the team. I would believe what Luongo said with his own words before I do anyone else.
