Luongo agrees to long-term contract extension

According to John Buccigross of ESPN, the Vancouver Canucks have re-signed goalie Roberto Luongo to a long-term contract extension. As per NHL rules, the contract cannot be officially announced until July 1. The rumor is that the deal is in the 8-10 year range, with an average cap hit of $5.75 million. Brochu's take: If this is true, than this would be a great deal for the Canucks.

The Team 1040 radio in Vancouver interviewed GM Mike Gillis and it appears that Daniel and Henrik Sedin are going to free agency. Gillis is quoted as saying "all bets are off" if the Swedish twins aren't signed by July 1.

I will have more updates regularly as we get closer to the draft/free agency!
