The temperature changed a little last week for the Vancouver Canucks when they filed to arbitrate against winger Mason Raymond. The environment may be dramatically altered this week as general manager Mike Gillis tries to trade goalie Roberto Luongo.

Gillis confirmed before travelling for NHL meetings on Tuesday that he is talking to teams about his goalie.

"There are lots of teams interested," Gillis said. "There's a limited number of proven No. 1 goaltenders in the world. Roberto is, without a doubt, a proven No. 1 all-star goalie."
