Now when Luongo said he would waive his no trade clause wouldn't you automatically think that a conversation about options would happen?
However just because a conversation about options happens it doesn't mean Luongo is asking to be traded. You're putting emphasis on something that's not there. I understand what you're saying and I understand what you want to be true but you should stop trying to prove something with assumptions. No matter how many times you say this you don't have enough parts of the equation to fit your belief.
Kind of like how you assumed I didn't listen to the interview. I did and I listened to it when it first happened. You didn't find some hidden gem of information you just showed how you went wrong. It doesn't mean you are wrong but there is nothing out there yet that says Luongo asked for a trade. As least with CoHo we've got his weirdo agents conflicting comments.
Gillis: Luongo, you are going to be traded.
Luongo: Ok, will you explore other teams that I may go to?
Gillis: Yes, this is the nature of a trade.
Luongo: oh yeah.
Luongo: Mike, i dont want to be a back up to CS, I want to be traded
Gillis: I know we dont want you to, hes our new starter and theres not very many backup goalies with your pay scale.
