No kidding. I'm 95% sure Dreger, when Nonis took over, joked around on the panel and then said they weren't close as they were second cousins (and honestly, it's not like they grew up in the same city). All of you make it seem like their cousins and best friends, and sleep together.

Why are we so sure that this is Toronto leaking it and not Luongo camp, or Vancouver camp (or someone else in the Leafs organization)? Not exactly, like Vancouver wasn't public enough with Gillis and Luongo talking about it. Toronto has no reason to leak this. It's not like Toronto was giving too much or Gillis had the value to high. In a non-cap world, this is a great trade for the Leafs. Toronto has no reason to leak it because if anything, people will ask why Nonis didn't take it.

Clearly if this is what the deal was, then chances are its the contract being poor value in the eyes of Nonis (and the Panthers/Tampa)
