Luongo lingers, and Canucks' questions mount
The Roberto Luongo drama seems set to drag on into the fall and, should the NHL owners lock out the players if no new collective bargaining agreement is reached by Sept. 15, perhaps December.
But the Canucks have other player decisions to make, as well. (The most important one they dealt with right away, locking up Cory Schneider for three more years.)
It makes sense for Canucks general manager Mike Gillis to wait to see the lay of the land after a new CBA is finally agreed to, but there are several players entering the final year of their contracts who are set to become unrestricted free agents next July 1.
