Can always count on Noheart. GD hilarious!!!
Am I understanding correctly here? That the two time President's Trophy team trades the reason they win it in the first place for what may be the worst contract/ player in the league?
And they call Luongo's contract and anchor...
No - you're not understanding correctly.
I agree with your post, but in some cases I think a buyout might be a better idea with the new rules in place.
It's not really flushing money down the Toilet, cause you owe them that money that is remaining on the deal anyways, so you buy him out you just pay it all right away it get rid of the guy.
If he brings negative value to the organization, and doesn't bring much on the ice and has a terrible contract that you can't move and you need that space badly I think buying someone out might be the right move.
Smashian, you jump in and argue and yet you hadn't really thought about what I was saying - nor did you really listen. The Ilses owe Dipietro 36 million over 8 seasons. The cost of buying him out is $24 million (not 36 - and not 28). The cap hit also disappears. The Canucks essentially buy those picks. The question becomes what a first round pick is worth in $ - not a conventional question, but the fact is that things have changed, and there will in all likelihood be deals of this nature. Perhaps you should wait and see how the landscape has changed before you flame away.
Seriously, is this a joke? The CBA hasn't even been ratified yet and there are already Toronto reporters camped out in Florida to watch Luongo practice. This would be the BIGGEST distraction ever!
Luongo doesn't need to be the one "causing" the uproar directly. It will simply happen. Jesus, it is already happening as we speak!
The reality is that it would probably help either way, because Luongo will just fetch us less the longer that we hold on to him.
Ha. By "distraction" do you mean hype -as in - get us that Luongo guy, we really want that Luongo guy - in other words, your months and months of going on about table scraps would seem fairly, shall we say ill-conceived.
Person A has 1 pound of Gold
Person A has 1 pound of Silver
I can trade my lucky penny for one pound of Silver because Person A has 1 pound of Gold thereby making his Silver useless.
Don't you get it man.
