For $900,000 or whatever it is that Cherry is overpaid, you'd think the CBC could afford someone who can pronounce players names, refrain from calling enforcers pukes, and spare us the endless self-righteous ranting.
I love Luongo but am not going to feel sorry for him - that is professional sport - when another competitor plays better than you, the obvious consequence is that they earn the job... He has had a great career and will continue to - people who think that no one will want him have no clue - Luongo would be a serious upgrade for a whole lot of teams, and the chance to acquire a proven franchise goaltender doesn't come along very often. His cap hit is modest and for teams that have money to spend, his contract is not going to deter them. If Philadelphia had not spent the farm on Bryz, you can imagine what they would do to get a Luongo. Tampa, Florida, Toronot - all teams that would be out of their mind to pass up the opportunity.
For those suggesting like the morons at the Province did, that Lecavalier will be coming to Vancouver, it is years to late to propose that, and makes absolutely no sense for Vancouver to take on his ridiculous contract - Luongo has much more value than a dump for a cap hit that would cripple the Canucks.
Lu has more value as a player, but his 10years declines a lot of his value. We would have to take a big contract in return without a doubt
