i think most of you are on a cloud right now
Those are all bad examples.

Chris Mason had a LOSING record and a sv% under .900 at the time of his trade.

Dwayne Roloson also had a losing record at the time of his trade 6-17.

Luongo was a RFA and was basically a dump because they didn't want to lose him for nothing.

However I agree that we are probably over valuing Halak but your examples aren't really finding quality goalies, but there is an explanation for that.

Teams don't trade #1 goalies because they generally need them. Not many teams have had two capable #1 goalies.
