If that's not enough, fine with me.
I think the reality is, it's fine with both of us. Of the teams that didn't trade for Luongo I think Tampa is the team that screwed up the most (trading two 2nds and a 3rd for a backup goalie...how much more would Luongo have cost?) and potentially Winnipeg and Philly. Otherwise, it's mostly worked out all-round. I think a lot of people fail to realize that it's worked out for the Canucks as well.

The Canucks can't take on Grabo at $5.5M. There is simply no room for him based on what the Canucks need to accomplish salary wise for next year...they need a UFA centre like Roy (and I don't mean for Luongo).
