Agree...Now let us count to 5 slowly to give certain rabid Nucks fans the opportunity to tell us:
Gillis is genuis who signed Luongo to a cap friendly contract with a NTC
Lou is a top 5 goalie at 33 (who the Nucks benched)
Gillis will get his asking price of an established player, a top prospect and a high pick
There are 4-5 teams beating down Gillis' door
it is best for the Nucks to go with Lou as a backup this season
Lou will never be bought out in the offseason, because his trade value is increasing
There is a Santa Claus who lives right next door to the Tooth Fairy....
