The potential damage is something Gillis would have already accounted for. Yes, it may still go awry with Cory. There is always that possibility. However, what should that matter to the fans of other teams? Does a potential controversy serve them in anyway?

The thought process here is that Gillis will buckle to putrid offers due to internal pressures... Think about it. This is Mike Gillis we are talking about here. Go toe to toe with Eagelson Mike Gillis... Carry both #1s into the season Gillis... Sit on a disgruntled Hodgson for 2 1/2 years Mike Gillis. Patience and pragmatism are his calling cards. Do you actually think he views this as a bad situation? Having two starters chomping at the bit to get in the net? This is bad?

Cory just needs to go out and make it a debate once again. Like he did last year, when he stole the net for 6 games in a row and everyone wondered when Luongo would get back in. Short memories around here.
