I just can't imagine any offer is going to fly that will get a team to take on that money.

Hopefully for Luongo's sake that's the route they go this offseason. Get cleared out of there and can go be a starter anywhere he gets an offer.
They do have another option, they can trade Schneider and keep Luongo as their #1 goal Tender but this whole thing didn't have to happen but Gillis screwed up, by signing Schneider as the #1 and then trying to trade Luongo.
