After the playoffs last season, I thought Luongo made some comments that didn't sit well with Vancouver? Might be a situation where they want to move him just to keep him out of the lockerroom.
Well, there definitely was a mutual agreement to move on. At the same time, Luongo seems to have his short list of teams. He has the NTC as leverage. If Vancouver had 30 teams to trade with, I don't doubt they could string something together and rather fast.
Honestly, I'm just glad I'll actually have sports to watch again (well, sports I actually care about, anyway; I know the NFL playoffs are still going, and there's other forms of hockey aside from the NHL... but it's nothing I find myself emotionally invested in at this point). Game on.
I could see canning Burke, but why over Luongo (according to Lebrun) he's a good goalie, but he's always seemed to falter under pressure, and besides I think Toronto is more than a goalie away from competing, but maybe they're getting desperate for the PO.
That's the kind of deal... He's EXACTLY what the wings needed.
Fistric handles the puck like it is a live grenade at times, at least whenever I have seen him play. He does some of the other things we want but I don't think he is comforable enough within the Wings system to work out.
