Sending Loungo to the Wolves

Luongo and Van should re-do the length of his contract, to make him easier to trade...like buy out the last 6 year chunk or whatever.

This is such a dumb idea.

He'd get claimed off of waivers. Even if he did manage to pass through waivers, he'd be stuck there all season. He'd get claimed on recall waivers in a heartbeat, and we'd be stuck with half his cap hit. Our organization would take a reputation hit for sending an elite player to the AHL just to clear cap space. It would be such a classless move.

Hopefully they will, if he doesn't get traded in time.

LUONGO HAS A NO MOVEMENT CLAUSE.

If a player has a no-movement clause, the player cannot be traded, waived, or sent down to the minors without that player's approval. In both cases, however, a player is not protected from being bought out by the player's current team.

I'm really hoping that Gillis can swallow his pride and accept the fact that he has ruined Roberto's trade value by signing him to that dumb 12 year $64 million contract and gets his head around the idea of mostly cap space coming back as value in any potential Luongo trade that might still be out there before the market evaporates and he goes into the season with a $5.3 million cap hit on his backup goalie.

A good player can still be had for $5-6 million on the market these days.

This thread is Clutch-worthy on so many levels. Arguably the stupidest thread ever posted on CDC. :picard:

I apologize to the OP if he / she is 8 or under or has developmental delays.

Also, Lu's contract is not good in terms of its length, but, a cap hit of $5.3 for a Top-10-in-the-world keeper seems pretty sound, to me.

The chances of Lu actually playing out his contract are not great, either. Wherever he is playing, there is a good chance that in '18-'19, Lu could be bought out of the last 4 years of his deal for about $4M if he is not playing well enough to justify his cap hit.

interesting question - theoretically it could happen, and save cap space.

but if you bring him up, and he is claimed (ie. doesn't make it through waivers) the canucks would be on the hook for half his salary and not even have him play for them. plus it would ruin his trade value considerably, as no one is going to pay for someone that won't make it through waivers... he would be stuck in the minors and have no value.

so even though you could theoretically do it to save cap space, it would be a very poor decision unless the nucks don't care about that 60 million or so they still owe him... last I checked, that wasn't chump change.

although they could do it for a few months after a trading deadline ... he could come up without waivers the next year. but it would be just stupid for them to do so, would never ever happen - a waste of cap space if they did this (even if they don't trade one of the goaltenders)

Doesn't matter... Burke will claim him off of waivers for free.
