Sounds like RSL will be the real winner in the Luis Gil lottery

Some breaking news from twitter and KC President Robb Heineman about Luis Gill:

It sounds like a good deal for a young prospect a 2nd round pick, and international slot (probably the one open with Rachid heading back to Europe) and some money.  

So one has to wonder what the means for the CBA, a 16 year old kid can force a deal from KC but a 35 yr old keeper that holds almost every MLS goalkeeping record can't get a deal?

I think this is a great fit for RSL, often in MLS getting a striker means starting with a younger inexperienced kid (Robbie Findley, Yura Movsisyan, and Fabian Espindola) and helping them develop with the first MLS player to ever hit the 100 goal mark and hopefully holding onto them long enough to get some real return.

It will be interesting to see how he fits in with the rest of the team and what impact he might be able to make over the next couple years.
