We typically hear all about that AFTER a GM acquires that player.
Talks between the #Isles and Nabokov have come to a standstill. The soon-to-be 38yo goalie with test the free agency market come July 5
I too thought for a long time that we could get something in return for Lu (and still think there was probably a better deal on table last year, pre-lockout), I just don't see why any GM would give up assets for him at this point when everyone knows GIllis has to deal him or buy him out. Maybe one of you guys could give me a team and a reason why they would take on the contract and who would be realistically coming back. And don't tell me its a good contract, everyone knows it's not, including Gillis and Roberto “My contract sucks. That’s what the problem is. Unfortunately, it’s a big factor in trading me, and it’s probably why I’m still here” Luongo.
