There won't be any clearance sale on Roberto Luongo.
Canucks general manager Mike Gillis reiterated Friday that he is prepared to keep Luongo and fellow goalie Cory Schneider all season and would be entirely comfortable doing so. Gillis also suggested any team wanting Luongo will have to pay the price. "There is a lot of talk going on," Gillis said. "But there is this presumption that you pick up the phone and make a trade. Well, it doesn't happen that way and there is usually a long process building up to it and I think Roberto has come in here and has continued to show what a quality person and quality goaltender he is. And if you want to acquire that, you have to pay a price for it." In other words, in Gillis's opinion, Luongo's solid play so far this season has only served to increase his value on the trade market.
