MG Laughing About Harding Signing with Wild?

87 posts in this topic

Gillis is laughing because now that Josh Harding signed a three-year contract with the Minnesota Wild there is one less potential No. 1 goaltender on the free-agent market. That leaves the Vancouver Canucks general manager with the best available commodity in veteran Roberto Luongo.

As the GM most interested in acquiring a veteran No. 1, Burke probably had to resist the urge to fling a few things around his office. With Harding off an already thin market, it will cost the Toronto Maple Leafs more to get their hands on Luongo, 33, despite his $5.33-million (all currency U.S.) salary-cap hit that has another 10 years to run.

"He’s got the top guy to trade right now," one of Gillis’s fellow GMs said.

Trade is inevitable. Man so many Leaf fans are going to be surprised what Luongo is going to fetch us.

Burke seems like the kind of guy who has to much pride to be cornered

Gotta say, from an outsiders perspective - things couldn't have gone better for Gillis. From Thomas's mental breakdown, refutes of Kipper hitting the market, Vokoun going to a team no one knew was looking, belief that Bernier won't be moved till Quick is locked up, now Harding signing w/ Wild. It's looks pretty promising.

But markets are fickle and they change quickly. It make look good for Gillis now, but all it takes is 1 team to make a goalie available and dynamics change. Hopefully Gillis has a strategy here, cause this is his contract - he needs to move it for valuable assets.
