Luongo's whore of a wife doesn't want to be here.
Do that fucking math, Jack.
Technically, Lou is under contract to us. He has to report and play for us if we want him to. Lou and his wife's feelings and thoughts don't matter, he signed on the dotted line and we have his rights.
Management only doesn't want Lou cuz we have Cory Schneids. No Schneids = mangement happy to keep Lou.
I guess Lou can decide to sit out and demand a trade, but that would work in our favour cuz we won't have to pay him while he doesn't report. I guess if it got to it and both sides were willing and agreed to it, they can decide to have the contract null and void. We don't have to pay Lou that monster contract, Lou can become a UFA and sign wherever he wants. Look at all the possible scenarios and it's nothing but win-win to keep Lou and trade Schneids.
