South Beach Collusion-Strombone1 Refused to Waive NTC?

Frank Krulicki ‏@krufrank 30 Jun, 2013
Interesting theory from a few NHL beat writers: some believe Luongo nixed up to 2 trades in the last few weeks with his NTC...

If this is true, the Canucks were being forced to buy him out so he could go to Florida (likely) or they had to trade Schneider.

From the same source last year: Frank Krulicki ‏@krufrank 25 Jun 2012
...as well placed insiders saying Luongo is only willing to waive NTC for Florida -already turning down TO and Chi

Before you say this is just a rumor from a bad source, the same source claims:

Frank Krulicki ‏@krufrank 1 July, 2013
Will be visiting with Luongo in a couple of weeks: yes the Luongo saga will likely continue all summer long.

So it appears Strombone1 was trying to force GMMG's hand and no wonder Strombone1 was shocked by the Schneider trade.

Another note: it was widely reported last year that Strombone1 had met with the Florida ownership group and that Tallon had been given the ok to upload his salary onto their payroll. It was later reported that Strombone1 was unhappy that Florida had declined to acquire him when the path was there.

Anyway, for Strombone1 and his agent to make the (rumored) current power move, he must have thought it was likely that once the Canucks bought him out that Florida would sign him.

If these rumors are correct the Canucks probably have a pretty good case for collusion or maybe they are just waiting for Florida to actually pay them to acquire Strombone1?????

Where's the "collusion"? Do you even know what that means?

He turned down Chicago? Sure, and Rick DiPietro turned down a contract extension from Detroit.

The KruFrank post about the Hawks was in 2012. Think back, Crawford had a .893 GAA in the playoffs in 2011-2012 and was on very shaky ground with the Hawks.

Vancouver has never been shy to claim tampering.

How is this collusion? If true, it's just a player exercising a clause in his contract as it was intended to be used.

That can't be right. Gillis has been planning to trade Schneider for years.

It's pure speculation, and not from a credible source at that.

Beyond that, exercising a NTC isn't collusion. It's a contractual right that he may exercise whenever he likes, as long as he does so within the parameters set forth within his contract.

Nothing to see here.

Collusion is a pretty strong word to use. Until there are rumors are hashed out a bit more, this thread will remain closed.
