The Key

from Bob McKenzie of TSN,
The key to the deal for the Vancouver Canucks is signing Luongo to a long-term contract. If they can do it this summer, the trade is obviously well worth it. If they cannot, the Canucks gave up all those assets for Lucas Krajicek - a guy who's still trying to establish himself as a quality NHL defenceman - and a draft pick. Now Canucks general manager Dave Nonis is confident that he can get Luongo to do what his agent Gilles Lupien would not do - sign a long-term deal before he becomes eligible to get a no-trade clause.
