While the light shines on teams still playing, several National Hockey League general managers are keeping an eye on the Vancouver Canucks "situation". It involves Roberto Luongo admitting he's willing to waive his no-trade clause, even though a decade remains on his 12-year, $64-million contract. The goaltender carries a $5.33 million salary-cap hit throughout, but is owed more than $6.7 million for the next six seasons. "Yeah, of course, if they ask me to," Luongo told reporters after the Canucks fell to the Los Angeles Kings in five first-round games. "I don't want to be one of those guys that's going to stand in the way of anything. I always want to put the team ahead of me first.
