Wake up, there are no GM association protecting their victim. Its everyone for themselves. If any GM would refuse to make a deal with Gillis in the future, they would just hurt themselves as much as Gillis. Especially since they would allow other GM to get better deal from Gillis because they remove themselves from making competing offer.
What about this instead:
1. Luongo agrees if he is given a compliance buy out he will sign with Florida. He negotiates this before trade is made.
2. Vancouver releases Luongo
3. Luongo signs with Florida
4. Florida does a lopsided trade to vancouver such as goalie + 1st for $$ and future considerations.
Of course nothing force Florida to do the step 4 and nothing force Luongo to sign with Florida.
This can work. Markstrom still needs 3 years with far less pressure.
Lui can sign with the panthers for 2 mil for 3 years to mentor Markstrom and help ease him into the starting position.
canucks need to put Luongo on waivers first. If he clears, and he should, then the pre arranged deal is for Lui to sign with Florida.
Tallon then trades a quality prospect to us for a 7th rounder.
