So if it did come to this, Vancouver's problem is solved. Somebody claims him on waivers, bye-bye buyout, some other team has the contract. I wonder, though, if for sure one team would bite the bullet. That team then has exclusive rights to Luongo and the contract or it decides to pass with the other teams and bid for Luongo at a far more reasonable price in an open market. I think any team, other than possibly a very, very rich one, would have to think long and hard about those options.
