None of us knows that for sure. It's just as likely that Florida is very high on acquiring Lu, and that Gillis is just waiting until a different, or another specific player or pick, is added to the deal coming our way.
It's still almost three months until the Canucks play their first regular season game. These deals may take a lot of consideration by both sides, but a decision is made in a moment.
Exactly, not to mention that w/ the CBA negotiations just getting going, no one knows what the cap situation will be, if there will be amnesties, etc etc. So teams aren't in a hurry to be picking up contracts right now. It's 3 months until the season starts, if it even starts. If the CBA is settled before then and Gillis still can't seem to move Luongo, then we can declare his value may not be as high as we'd like. The general consensus amongst analysts before free agency even started was that if Luongo was going to be moved it probably wouldn't be until late in the summer, so everything seems to be going par for the course anyway. Also as has been mentioned, if contract terms are decreased significantly in new CBA, suddenly Lu's long term and decent cap hit are very attractive and could greatly increase the number of teams interested.
