Of the 5 teams in the bottom of the standings there are 3 that Lou would probably waive to go to. 2 of them for sure.
Tampa, Florida, and Philly.
Tampa and Florida both need goaltending and are both destinations that Louie wants end up in.
Philly is on the east coast and they need goaltending, but that is expensive for them because of the ridiculous contract they gave to Bryzgalov.
I really think Gillis can find a trading partner in Tampa Bay, but not until the draft. If he's smart, and if there are no crazy good offers for Louie on deadline day, then he waits until the draft before dealing with Yzerman. I think that if Luongo went to Tampa at the deadline, the Bolts climb out of the basement and push for the 8th spot in the East. If a pick came back our way that pick is suddenly worth less.
