That's not bad on the surface, but i'm firm in my belief that luongo's contract is such a cap killer especially when toronto could stand to get another good forward or two. Looks more and more like Luongo will get either amnestied or bought out at some point.
his contract is so bad even he thinks it sucks: Roberto Luongo stays with Canucks, says 'my contract sucks' - ESPN

new NHL playoff format for next season

Quote:
The top three teams in each division will make up the first 12 teams in the playoffs. The remaining four spots will be filled by the next two highest-placed finishers in each conference, based on regular-season points and regardless of division. It will be possible, then, for one division to send five teams to the postseason while the other sends three.

The seeding of the wild-card teams within each divisional playoff will be determined on the basis of regular-season points. The division winner with the most points in the conference will be matched against the wild-card team with the lowest number of points; the division winner with the second-most points in the conference will play the wild-card team with the second fewest points.

The teams finishing second and third in each division will play in the first round of the playoffs. The winners of each series will play for berths in the Conference Championship series.

The two divisional champions in each conference will then play in the conference finals to advance to the Stanley Cup Final.

Im glad we didn't get Lu either, aging goalie with a horrible contract. Gillis overplayed his hand with Lu, now he has to beg teams to take him in the off-season.

BTW. Luongo said in the press conference he'd scrap his contract if he could. Can a player and a team mutually terminate a contract?

there would probably be a payout that the Canucks would have to make if they terminated his contract.

I heard it was a 2nd, 3rd, scrivens and some compensation for his contract.

That would have been such an insane steal for the leafs.

Lu single handedly wins an extra 3-5 games for the leafs.

umm really? i suspect we won't really know what was offered, but Luongo has been pretty shaky... there have been games were Reimer was the one who eeked out the win.

Taking a page out of a much smarter hockey dude than me from a TFC board i go to, ook at it this way if Luongo were to sign a contract today it would be something like 4 mil for 4 years. 16 mill tops. He's owed something like 40 million. See the problem here? No one is touching that contract.

Now for the love of all things holy please be OK Joffrey Lupul.

Grabovski 5.5/year
Kessel Trade (mostly in how it went down, not the direct trade itself)
Phaneuf 6.5/year
Lilies 3.875/year
Connolly 3.85/year
Komisarek 2.773/year

Every decision there is far worse then bringing in Luongo.

It seriously doesn't matter how shit his contract is, if you can bring in a player of his quality for effectively fuck all, you do it.

Well enjoy missing the playoffs again for the next 10 years.
This shortened season fluke doesn't really count when they'll be quickly 4-0'd in the first round.
