What We Learned: Maybe Mike Gillis was serious

MG's strategy is a good one but lui has to be gone by training camp.... all there is to it.

He'll be traded during the regular season when some, yet to be determined starting goalie gets injured. He'll be very valuable then and should net a decent return. Until then...........

Bjugstad would look mighty fine in Kesler's place to start the year.

If he drove up Hodgson's value, then you have to be a big believer in Zack Kassian.

Tallon sat on Booth at the start of last season. No reason not to expect Gillis to sit on Luongo at the start of this season.

But there's way too much talk of Bjugstad, imo. That of course isn't the only option Gillis is considering.

I've learned two troubling things:

--Luango may be unwilling to be traded anywhere but Florida. So the waiting game is as much for him as it is for other teams to up their offers. He either blinks and expands his list of destinations or reports to camp as a 2nd stringer.

--Leafs, the one team with the biggest need and thus most motivated to trade for Lu, have absolutely nothing MG wants.

Also, Bjugstad must be hell of a prospect.

Bjugstad will be playing in college this season.

Given that Weiss is ufa next summer, you can see why Tallon would be hesitant on trading Bjugstad.

Wouldn't be shocked if Weiss is in fact traded by the deadline. A Florida standings correction is fairly possible. Esp. with no Luongo.

Keep him until you get fair value. We're not Florida's farm team, it's the other way around.

Meanwhile, Lindback isn't a proven starter. TB is still very much in the picture, even if Yzerman won't admit it.

One thing i found interesting was the part about Hodson and how MG drove up his trade value.

Still speaking of values, you bring none to any discussion. Yeah, yeah, Gillis sucks. Yawn.

Luongo's on the table and a lot of teams are interested. However, Gillis can indeed afford to be patient. Nothing wrong with that.
