The timing would make sense, because now Vancouver can absorb some of the cap hit and salary cost.

MLCE wants Luongo, and Burke keeps blocking them by citing the horrible contract that Luongo carries with them. The new CBA alleviates that (to an extent), and Burke still blocks the deal (who wants a goalie that is signed until 42?!?!). MLSE says fine, if you won't do it, we'll bring in someone who will.
