Gillis certainly sounds upset here.
So what, everybody else thinks he is asking too much? If he is comfortable with his asking price, why get upset?
But as posted above, there are 28 other teams in the league, and according to Gillis a number of them were interested in Luongo... yet none of these teams thought the asking price was something they could afford either. hmmmmm
An interesting note.... Luongo plays with Vancouver for the year, that tacks another $1.4 million in penalty they'll have to count on their cap, when he does retire, prorated by the number of years he retires early.
He can stamp his feet all he wants, but it looks like we are going with what we've got, no matter how they perform. It isn't as if there aren't UFA goalies sitting around without contract, if we get in a pinch. It seems Nonis has made up his mind, and I'm good with that. I do think that there will be issues in Vancouver this year due to the distractions.
