First time I've ever commented on Roberto Luongo. Quite frankly, I'm glad this is all over. I'm very happy Nonis was smart enough to keep away from that contract.

That being said, I've never understood how Vancouver fans and management were acting like they had the upper hand in a trade situation for Luongo. I couldn't believe the Bozak, Kadri, 1st round picks etc.... suggestions.

Why would any team give them anything to make a deal. I would want something like Luongo and a 1st for Komasarik and Connolly and the Canucks should have been doing back flips over that. Even then though I wouldn't have wanted any part of that contract.

My view of Luongo as a person has changed though. I always thought he was a grease ball but he's been very classy and seems like a good guy.
