Since I am ruthless and cold, I would offer sheet Tanev. I'd offer outside of Vancouver's structure, which is five million for top four defencemen. Vancouver might not be able to match it!
I like Luongo to be honest, but I've studied his contract and way it's structured in the new CBA just makes it really, really hard for the Oilers to justify it, as it would be a cap anchor even if he retires.

Which isn't really workable for a team like ours and the contracts we'll likely have down the road.

I think Lu ends up in Florida for basically peanuts in the summer.
