i've been preaching this since the rumour broke out.

Add NJ to that list.

As well as the possibility of Columbus and Boston depending on what they do with their #1 situations.

Wouldn't count Pittsburgh out either.

Yup.

Money should simply not be an object for this franchise. What we're hearing is absolutely nauseating.

Again, I'm not going to fully pass judgement here until we fully see what comes to pass ... but if what's being reported is true, Aquilini will not be seeing a dime of my money for the foreseeable future.

Which team has good ownership so I can have something new to complain about?

I was pretty excited to get a wealthy owner who seemed to just want to win, but my opinion is slowly starting to sour—if money isn't really an issue, a buyout for the betterment of the club should not be too big of a deal.

Perhaps their finances are not in as good shape as we once thought?

you think every rumour makes it out? there are plenty of trade talks that nobody knows about going on right now. for every 1 trade rumour/talks that is leaked there is 10 that don't get reported.

Problem when the owners are fans. Ive always had a sneaking suspicion that there was a bit too much ownership involvement .

Regardless its MGs mistake to fix and it sounds like the owners are not behind him

Nope.

I can see the Isles being interested in Cory. Flyers seem to want to go with a tandem duo for some dumb reason.

Cap recapture makes it all the more foolish to go down this road. And even if you think Aquilinis might sell the team before that kicks in, a long term obligation like Luongo's contract reduces franchise value. Penny foolish, pound foolish.

She had to take the freaking wine collection! Could have bought out Ballard probably with that money.

sounds like Gillis is asking for the moon for both Luongo and Schneider. Gillis needs to settle things once and for all, it is a distraction

Aquilini is kidding himself if he perceives Canuck fans are blindly loyal as Toronto or Montreal fans. If we continue to have mediocre showings in the playoffs. Fan interest will deteriorate.

He should be asking a lot of Cory. However, he isn't in a position to ask a lot for Luongo.

I have a feeling it is going to end today. He may be asking a lot, but he'll give in a bit and get this nonsense over with. I hope.

Too much misinformation floating around. I see some fans have already hopped onboard this line of reasoning.

If the ownership were this stingy, why spend so much off-ice? Scouting dept., sleep doctors, hiding contracts on LTIR, it doesn't add up. I'm not buying for a second that ownership has outright refused to grant buyouts. Too much history contradicting it.

Yup.

You really have to wonder if he's in financial trouble with his other interests.

Plus I fully expect this will be a PR disaster if we keep Luongo.

It's bloody obvious we'd be keeping a worse player that we didn't want solely for financial reasons. While the team is highly profitable and gouging fans at every level.

What the effect this will have on fan perception of the franchise and willingness to spend money is unknown, but it can't be good.
