Why is Mike Gillis Demanding Nick Bjugstad From the Florida Panthers?

Sig too big.

With Bjugstad committed to college for the upcoming year, getting him in return for Luongo essentially erases Lu's cap hit for a year, allowing us the freedom to land a veteran for a year or two. When Bjugstad is ready, then other salaries come off the books. It's like when we got Ehrhoff and Lukowich for P. White and Rahimi. Neither of those guys were going to suit up for the Sharks, but it got 2 salaries off of the Sharks' books so that they could afford Heatley.
And personally, for that cup window, I'd rather have the Canucks competitive every year, than to have them load up for a single run, and then suck until we get some top end draft picks.
You don't understand anything, man. Leave your stupid comments in your pocket
