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.
i agree examples dont hold up (anyways no goaltender is like another), but what does hold up is that there is no goaltender that has been traded for something decent except the examples i gave.
dunno how halak, with less games, is more of a num 1 goaltender then leclair was. same with rolly.
