Gillis is blowing smoke to create a market that does not exist. Luongo has a no trade and controls the agenda. He is getting paid handsomely. He will dictate where he goes. I think Gillis overplayed his hand, not surprising considering he is a ****** GM to start with.
He will go to Florida (his preferred destination) but they won't give up what the Canucks want ( Nick Bjugstad +) and do they want that contract? Doubt it.
He will go to Toronto but Nonis won't give up what the Cancucks want. Nonis can play chicken with Gillis because Nonis does not have a "win now" mandate. He knows Gillis is in a tough spot.
He will go to Philly, is Homer insane enough to introduce Luongo to that meat grinder? Does he want that contract?
I don't think he'd go to Edmonton and I don't think Tambelinni has the balls or the brains to make a trade to actually improve his hockey team. He's just waiting for another high pick and hoping that eventually he has enough drafted talent to compete.
He would go to Chicago but I think the Hawks will run with Crawford hoping last year was the "2nd year blahs".
Let me tell you though, sports radio in Vancouver is DELICIOUS right now. If they lose to Calgary tomorrow night the city might implode.
