1. Florida does a lopsided trade to vancouver such as goalie + 1st for $$ and future considerations.

3. Vancouver releases Luongo

4. Luongo signs with Florida
But what if Vancouver doesn't do the step 3 ? Nothing force them to do so, and they have all the good reason to not do it.

They got a lopsided deal, everything is according to the rules, Talon get fired and Gillis will look like a genius. Florida cant do anything about it since it was informal.

It will only be a lesson for future GM to be not as stupid as Talon was in this deal. Of course Talon would hate Gillis forever, but who care? Talon would probably never be a GM again after showing how stupid he was in this deal.

here is how it should work...
