When asked what the options are on Luongo, Gillis says: "Either play or don't play". #Canucks @CKNW

That is so true. Luongo signed the contract and should be professional enough to honour it.

Considering all of the garbage thrown his way after he killed the bear, I think his response is hilarious. So I have to agree with ukcanuck.

Moose Meat all of them. Seriously, I hope they help our AHL team, else the Moose are gonna feed on them. Maybe a depth call-up or two in the group, but nothing serious, and nothing in the starting line-up
The Cup is soooooo ours!!!!!!!

Cody Sylvester. My brother just started raving about him. From what he has found and the little I've found, I'm very interested in this kid.

I wouldn't be shocked to see Sweatt qualified as well as he is a decent AHL guy.


Not that it matters much, but Sweatt just signed with Brynas of the SHL (same team as Rodin by the way).

Yeah... rather pointless with links in Swedish but I thought should post some kind of source... guess you just have to trust me on this one...

Also explains why they had no issues qualifying him. Allows him to go to Europe and maybe develop while they keep control of his rights. And if he stayed in NA he would have been a good addition to the Comets.

Same as Rodin...qualifying allows them to keep control of his NHL rights. Forgot about that when the qualifiers were announced.

Bill Sweatt declined his qualifying offer from the #Canucks and signed with Brynas in Sweden.

What does it mean? Do the Canucks still hold his NHL rights?
