You wanna know where Toronto's bargaining power comes from? There's more than justLuongo available out there. Do I have the names? no, but the point remains. Gillis has few teams to deal with here in reality. Toronto can deal with anyone, can Vancouver say the same? I want Luongo here but lets not kid ourselves, it's not Luongo or bust. Sure, Gillis can keep him and he might but how many GM's wanna commit that much cap space to two goalies? It's an envious position in terms of talent between the pipes but it's not an envious position in terms of the cap. Cap management dictates it would be foolish to spend that kind of money between two goalies.
