Ive said this whole time, I dont think Luongo is bought out. (Feel free to quote me, and possibly call me out later).

I have also said I will gladly eat crow if he is bought out (as I hope the pro-buyout crowd will if Luongo isn't bought out).

At the end of the day, I think every GM's job is to improve their team.
If your a team like (lets say Edmonton) and you can improve your goaltending situation for cents on the dollar I think as a GM you have to pull the trigger (instead of pray he makes it to you on waivers, or somehow signs with your team as a free agent)

I am a subscriber to AHL Live and I've watched Dipstick and he sucks, big time. He's not just bad for an NHLer, he's bad for an NHLer. He should be no more than an AHL backup, maybe even an ECHLer. I'm not exaggerating.

I'll freely admit I've dabbled in these Luongo threads for far too long, and I'll eat crow if he brings anything of value back in a trade because of my opinion that he's a buyout candidate.

That said, I'd be furious with MacT if he trades even cents on the dollar for Luongo on his current contract. Especially with a reasonable (read: good enough) goalie signed for next year.
