But then again that wouldn't work because they'd have to find a trading partner that would A) Take that contract and B) give Vancouver something the fans might feel is of fair value for Luongo. We all know how impossible that would be.
I think they should just disregard what the fans think and just do what they think is best. If that means the best they can do is unload Luongo for "future considerations" to some team that will want him to make the floor, so be it. It would be addition by subtraction.

my point was that Vancouver fans simultaneously want to get rid of Luongo because he isn't living up to his contract and over-value him when working out hypothetical trades. It's always a bad idea to bend to the will of the fickle masses in maintaining a team, but that doesn't mean it never happens or it doesn't influence GM moves.

Oh I saw your point and I agree with it completely, I just think if Vancouver tries to get rid of Luongo this summer and the best offer they can get is for "future considerations" I think they should not be afraid of annoying their own fan base and do what they think is best for the franchise.

Holy **** the Hawks tie it up with 1:26 to go in the third.

Amazing. We might have yet another OT in this series.

Not sure if Laddy or Crawford ****ed up worse on that one. They both looked like scrubs there though.

Avder, take solace in knowing that Phoenix has never won a playoff series yet.

Yeah I know, I'm just still ticked off because of the Torres hit. Hossa is a HUGE part of the Hawks teams and Torres is just an easily replaceable jackass. There is no justice here without the Hawks winning the series.

Oh I wasn't saying how nice it would be to see them finally win a series.

I was saying how confident I am in their ability to collapse.

I dunno. Historically yeah, they should collapse. But this year they look like the real deal so far.

I just hope Shanny breaks out the Megaton BanHammer on Torres's ******* ass tomorrow.

Edit: Oh come on, ******* is censored? How about scum bag?

What sig? I do not and never have had a sig.

Yeah I'll be changing at least something about my avatar tonight tho.

Also if you want to talk about jinxes, you should stop offering to change your avatar to a nordy one, every time you've put that up on the results of a game, the even that needs to happen to change it never happens
