Teams want Lu

Recommended Posts

Pierre Lebrun was on the team 1040 and said he spoke to one GM who he would not name, and said he is very interested in Luongo. But not his contract and he is hoping the Canucks buy him out so he could sign him right away.

So this situation is interesting. MG is not going to get the deal he wants now for Lu for sure, and if he does happen to pull a trade but keeping some of Lu's salary, it will be the best case scenario now. But what do you think Lu would get signed for say the Canucks buy him out because a lot of teams will jump on him. And Pierre also mentioned he thinks Luongo is the best goalie out of all of the ones available.

Well then we would need to arrange a deal so that we retain a certain percentage of his salary then. Cause we definitely aren't buying him out.

3 yrs $16 mil if Lu was a UFA? Same cap hit as now

This garbage sounds like league-approved gm collusion to me. If such a player were on Boston or Chicago, the media would imply the return should be a windfall.

There is no chance in hell that we buyout Lu. That GM can keep dreaming.

I'm sure he is not actually waiting for a buy out and realistically expecting it. Just more of a mention of what media fans don't realize, teams want Lu just not his contract. If Lu was a UFA, you will have at least 5 teams going hard for him.

Canucks won't buy him out, if they do in fact some how trade, it will be for not much at all in return and we would have to retain salary.

Gillis screwed this all up. Becoming more evident everyday

I agree - he will get the same but for a shorter term.

Lus contract just isnt that bad. In a few years teams will be salivating over it, especially if they want to kill cap.

This, among others should get this GM fired.

But nooooo, he's still here. I'm sure Canucks won't win the cup with MG as GM.
