Not surprisingly, a disparaging piece of news to the Canucks' clearly awful negotiating position sparks a new conspiracy - Darren Dreger is somehow trying to screw over the Canucks to benefit his cousin.
Only in Vancouver.
Oldnews, out of curiosity, does this news item make you at least question the valuation that you've put on Luongo, throughout this thread, or is this really a conspiracy by Dreger to somehow persuade Mike Gillis to trade him to the Leafs on the cheap? Think about it.
Nice keyword you chose - "conspiracy" - surprise, king resorts to embellishment - if there were a list of blatant embellishers on CDC, you'd be the posterboy.
Which part should make me reconsider king? - the five suitors part, or the waivers part? Most people could smell the immense contradiction. Look, Dreger's been singing the same song all along. Why would I question my valuation? Imo, I've proposed some reasonable hockey trades, all things considered, but then again you aren't terribly adept at responding to what people actually say are you?
Because he's been arguing this whole time that Luongo's elite, and, thus, the return will also be elite. My argument has been that market forces have put us in a very low-leverage bargaining position and we should not be expecting that sexy of a return - which Dreger, evidently, agrees with, and he's now been hilariously labeled as anti-Canuck because of it.
Leave it to you to be looking for a "sexy" return. I wouldn't know or care what that might mean - I'd just like to see a player/prospect or two at positions of interest who can play the game.
The rest is par for the course with you - manipulative and creative paraphrasing.
