Gillis kept Lu because the offers were crap.
Keeping him was the right call as he's a valuable member of the team and there is no downside to having him here.
Now, should GMMG fail to move him before the start of next season, and we are left holding the bag on that contract, then your point will have merit, but until that happens you are just talking out your ass.
Because a big chunk MG's report card as GM really depends on how this plays out, and what he passed up.
If he was offered Bozak & a 2nd for Luongo by TO that's a deal he should have taken. If it was Bozak & Franson then he really should have taken the deal.Blob Mckenzie wrote:What exactly was he offered for Luongo in the summer ?
I have to ask because all of these bed ridden GM's in their unrine saturated sheets keep saying he should have been dealt in the summer . Is there a deal that would have made sense ? If he goes now or he goes at the draft it won't much matter as the return will not be signifigant. Oh well... he gave us 7 great years and he was a consummate pro. If it's a 2nd rounder and a warm body I'm okay with that. People need to realize that players on long term deals regardless of their pedigree will be harder to move and obtain fair value for. Or I guess they can throw a tantrum and act like a 3 year old.
No if TO wanted Luongo and a 2nd for Bozak then I can see why MG wouldn't go for it.
