After seeing that happen, I have to admit a Luongo buyout is looking like more of a possibility.


The difference: Vinny had a NMC and wouldn't accept a trade.

I posted a link about a week ago.

The window is from 48hrs after the Cup is awarded until July 4th at 5:00PM (? something like that).

ESQ wrote:can anyone verify that a compliance buyout has to start with waivers?


A compliance buyout has to start with waivers UNLESS the player has a NMC.

So it's settled then...

In a stunning twist, and years of redemption at stake...I woke up this morning to see Spidey finally has a chance at seeing his childhood dream come to fruition. :drunk:

bring on the fantasy line-up threads! :wave:


You're confusing Spidey with Jewie (happens all the time).

Besides, Lecavalier said today on RDS that he will not go in the west.

Smart money in on Montreal at this point.

Looks like you're still on vacation :evil:

Although, I would love to see Vinnie here now, for say 4.5 8-)

I ain't that hopeful. It will go down like this -
Mike 'Asleep At The Wheel' Gillis will waive him on July 3rd after exhausting all avenues pleading with a GM to help him get out of the pinch he's in. And once all 29 other GMs say no to the waive, on July 4th Aquamarine gets out the cheque book and buys him out. As soon as that is done the vultures Will circle Luongo and throw him offers.

The other GM's got a viscious crystall ball and are not about to do Mike a favor. Mike folds his cards
Walks away from the table greatly humbled.


I agree

:eh:


What exactly do you agree with?

That every one of the 29 other GM's do not have their own teams best interest in mind?

Lecavalier's agent today on TSN 690 Radio: Montreal is home, it's where Vinnie lives when the season ends and if Montreal has interest they will listen. Said he would like to play for Montreal, but will listen to all options.

LOL at all the Leafers out there convinced Vinnie will sign with the Leaves! Some things never change. Ummm Vinnie only agreed to waive his NMC if Toronto bought him out... so he could re-sign with Tampa. Then the league piped up and said they wouldn't allow that. But most Leafers out there appear to have the IQ of a steaming pile of poo...

The only thing that might stop Vinnie from signing with Les Habs is the fact he likes to go out in public without being mobbed. Montreal is the one crazed-fan market he might go to, considering the fact he grew up there as a huge Habs fan and lives there in the off-season. Toronto is the LAST place he’d go. He knows that Hab fans would turn on him like rabid dogs since a move like that would be the ultimate betrayal (and he’s be SLAUGHTERED by the Montreal media). Plus the Leaves are definitely NOT a contender. LAST PLACE he’d go…

Speaking of the Leaves and LAST PLACE, here's hoping they trade their 2014 1st-rounder and end up in LAST PLACE.

The NHL certainly got what it wanted. They got these contracts that they signed off on off the books and the teams that signed them take a hit. All because a few GM''s didn't like them and pouted hard. They should be ashamed of themselves.

I am now firmly on board with buying Luongo out and being out from under the cap recapture worries and be done with it. Lets move on.

Looking more and more like it now HW, I fully agree with RoaylDude! :blush:

:shock:
With HW saying that, now I'm worried.

If nothing happens by the draft, I can foresee Lu being bought out.

*Granted MG looks really calm and sure of himself, guess we'll find out quick whats going on.

Yes, let's move on! Be done with it. But as usual, while all the other GMs are hopping out of the gate with buy outs the players agent is again taking his sweet time.

I'd rather get a handful of middling draft picks and worry about cap recapture in half a decade when the cap is at $80m than buy Luongo out.

I'm sure the Aquilinis would too.
