You should scroll up and read Tant's post.RoyalDude wrote: Yup, no pressure on Tallon, all the pressure is on Gillis. Tallon can wait til the fucking cows come home.
Then look at Theodore's post-lockout record and ask yourself how likely he is to repeat last season's success at age 36.
Then consider how the Cats owners made it clear they want Lou (more ticket sales? more wins? PLAYOFFS??).
Imagine the disappointment of Florida fans if Lou doesn't return after all the talk and then Jose crashes!
Oh there's pressure on Tallon and you bet he knows last season was a fluke and Theodore won't repeat.
No pressure on Gillis because if there is no Lou trade Canucks are still Cup contenders.
You may not be UP for this game of poker, but Gillis is.
Well that's just silly.RoyalDude wrote: It's no secret Doc, there isn't a great market for Lou
Actually Luongo would likely INCREASE the number of teams he'd waive for IF Tallon doesn't blink first (he will).RoyalDude wrote: , couple that with his limited amount of teams he will waive for....Gillis will have to budge first. Nobody wants to give up what he wants. The only team that is real desperate for a goalie is Toronto and I don't like anything what the Leaves have to offer, not too mention as time wears on, Luongo will really narrow it down to just a couple of teams he will waive for if he hasn't already.
I've already listed (coupla times) 8 or 9 teams that could/would/should be looking to upgrade to a top-10 tender
.... and guess what: Lou is the only one available!
