We have a young core, and we won't trade away significant pieces of that core unless we get some longterm assistance. The Flyers aren't in a "go for it now before the window closes" mode.

But make no mistake, the Flyers would be very interested if they thought Luongo wanted to make a longterm commitment to Philadelphia.
Thanks for correcting me there! RFA status is an entirely different beast.. but should Roberto ever be traded for Carter + JVR, it would be fairly obvious that Philly would have adequate negotiation time set aside with Luongo prior to the trade.
