Conversely, if we are an exception, then there are likely other exceptions as well, since they tend to travel in bunches. Which implies the original claim is hyperbolic, at best, and not supportable.
I think we all agree its simple. Trade luongo if there is a decent deal out there. Hang onto him if not. Complicated.

TO is in that nasty position of negotiating from weakness. They want something, but can't afford to give anything up to get it.
