It broke early, but was a nice thing to wake to. The Canucks are now justifying the rumours that ravaged Twitter thanks to the fake Luongo account and reporting that the superstar netminder has inked a 12 year contract extension. As club policy the terms of the deal were not disclosed, but it’s obviously front loaded, and rumoured to be 64 million dollars. That would work out to 5.33 million dollars against the cap which for a star goaltender like that is all you can ask.
Luongo had this to say on the signing.
I love playing in a passionate hockey city like Vancouver and along with my teammates I am committed to doing everything I can to help make this a championship team.
The deal does include a no trade and no movement clause.
Right now Gillis isn’t looking too bad.
