It's pretty clear to me that Nonis never had interest in Luongo and was negotiating in bad faith. Don't begrudge him for it either, all's fair in love and war, but he was clearly stringing Gillis along. It's a shame Dreger felt the need release all the sordid details though, seemed rather mean-spirited when it comes to the player (Luongo) involved. Gillis was obviously trying to do Luongo a favour and Dreger essentially mocked the Canucks for it and dragged Luongo through the mud in the process. I'm sure Nonis loved it though, must be nice having a family member that you can use in the media.

Anyway, that's totally Nonis' prerogative, nothing illegal about what he did. Besides, Canucks will find a better deal in the summer, I'm sure of it. It may not be much better but Gillis won't be as under the gun to move him.
