Well Luongo said himself that he would scrap that I'd he could. I'll take his word over an Internet blogger.

Luongo isn't necessarily helping the Canucks out as much as he is helping himself out. Scrapping his contract makes him a UFA and allows him to go wherever he wants. He's made millions in his career, and it appears he only really wants to go to a select few destinations. If the Canucks tell him a buyout isn't an option, what other choice does he have?
