Agreed. This rumor was probably originated from Vancouver to try and create a market of Lou. The fact is Vancouver has to trade him. Nobody is going to back a backup goaltender over 5 million for another 10 years. The only option they have is to buy him out this summer. If I was a GM, I would definitely make them give up something else to get rid of him, like at least a 2nd rd pick.
