Kukla's Korner Hockey

from Dan Murphy of Sportsnet,
Roberto Luongo changed agents and this has to be seen as a shot across the bow of the Vancouver Canucks.
Why else would a guy with nine years left on a contract fire his agent?
This tells me Luongo is not coming to camp quietly (and probably doesn’t want to come at all).
This tells me Gilles Lupien told Luongo that he couldn’t help find him a trade out of Vancouver so Luongo told him he was fired.
This tells me Luongo has now entrusted CAA Sports (JP Barry and Pat Brisson) to find him the trade Lupien couldn’t.
As long as Luongo’s contract was a standard players deal (no reason why it wouldn’t have been) then Lupien will continue to receive a cheque thanks to the 12-year “sucky” contract he helped negotiate with GM Mike Gillis.
So what’s in it for CAA?
