If it weren't for the salary cap it would make sense for both LA and Vancouver. They are trading down to a goalie with arguably less potential, can play backup, and then getting a serviceable forward in return.
Neither teams need to worry about having a #1 develop with Quick (who is cheap/good) and Luongo. Also, who knows, Bob may pan out.
I don't know if i'd pull the trigger myself, I find "potential" around here seems to go a bit too far...especially considering the development of goalies is a fickle business. Personally as mentioned before, I think going after Vokoun is a sound investment.
