    I'd still like to hear what Gradin thinks of all this.
    I believe Luongo has a out-clause next year, so I doubt this drama will be over anytime soon.

    Out clause? Like retirement? I didn't think that was allowed at all in the CBA?

    The devil is so often in the details and there are some interesting ones in the Luongo contract which is set to pay him $64 million US over the 12 years. It’s no secret that most people don’t believe Luongo will play all 12 years, which would take him to age 43. Chances are he will retire before then, and most see him playing just eight or nine years in Vancouver. But it could be far less. This deal includes several “escape clauses,” mitigating risk by giving both parties an out if they’re unhappy.

    The first comes five years into the extension. If Luongo isn’t pleased with where the team is at, or where it’s heading, he can then trigger a trade. The out clause is timed for what should be an organizational crossroads — one year after the Sedins’ current long-term deal is up. The Canucks have agreed to accommodate the request by moving Luongo at that point.

    That's an interesting trick, wonder how they worded it. I assume his agent finds the trades and Van gets some form of final approval.

    Being Vancouver, it's more likely to be dancing with Mary Jane.

    More gasoline for the fire

    Torts warns Canucks on Twitter: ‘There better be nothing coming out of our locker room’ | ProHockeyTalk

    If John Tortorella had his way, none of the Vancouver Canucks would be using their Twitter accounts during the season.

    No, not even Roberto Luongo (aka @strombone1), one of the most famous tweeters in the NHL.

    But in an interview with Sportsnet (video), the fiery head coach, who’s attempting to become a tad more progressive, said he may have to meet his players “halfway” when it comes to things like Twitter.

    “I think I’ve been a little behind as far as this social media and all the stuff that goes on with that,” said Tortorella.

    “I do have a Twitter account, and I use it solely for charities. It was a huge success for some of the things we did with animal welfare in New York.

    “But, quite honestly, I think that Twitter and tweeting is one of the most narcissistic things I’ve ever seen, as far as people saying, ‘I’m here doing this.’”
    This should be good, the only way it could be better is to find out Tim Thomas is considering a Canucks offer
