As an aside, Dregger last night on TSN was pretty funny... Analyzing Gillis word-for-word ("as long as he would like", I think the quote was, he picked out), and suggesting that it might be difficult to keep Luongo happy, despite what he says... Despite what Luongo himself says (ignoring this)! Completely neglecting (failing to mention) the chance for playoff success, playing with friends in a city he likes, etc... Toronto media is selling you what you want to hear... That it's possible to get Luongo cheap... Once, it was even sold! Done deal! How many Toronto fan suckers were born that day?
You are assuming i believe all media reports...i do not. As far as the "done deal"'s about as true as Gillis' "mystery team" deal.
