Opens up a lot of possibilities. Gives the Canucks more flexibility to make deals if they are willing to cough up some cash. Gilman's cap managing talents will be more essential than ever

I'm confused, isn't the number 1 reason Luongo needs to be traded because of the Canuck's high cap hit of goaltender (some of which needs to be used elsewhere). Not because the Canucks can't afford to write his cheque. How is retaining salary against cap an advantage?
