You are dreaming if you think that Tallon is going to bailout Gillis? You are dreaming and on drugs, if you think that Tallon is going to bail out Gillis without the Nucks retaining a lot of salary and/or taking back a bad contract.

BTW As a former agent, except for the Lou contract, Gillis has done a good job resigning existing talent. His record trading with Tallon has favored the Nucks in the short term and the Cats in the longer term, which makes sense given that the Nucks were and are cup contenders and the Cats rebuilders.
So you don't believe that if the Canucks waived Luongo that anybody would pick him up?
