Garon could keep it up, I just don't think so, and if I'm Dave Taylor and can pull off a deal for a top 3 goaltender in Luongo if it doesn't cost me a ton, I do it in an instant.
To be fair, Luongo was in a slump of his own earlier this year. However, I do agree that if the oppurtunity arises for a goalie of that caliber, any team that doesn't already have one should jump. However, Dave Taylor has already addressed that need last year when he acquired Garon after several years of half-measures and shaky goaltenders. He's fixed the problem...and DT is not one to go around fixing things that aren't broken...regardless of whether or not he might be well-advised to do so...
