Debatable. I think Luongo is better, but taking contracts into consideration Kipper likely holds more value. Regardless, take into account teams that are looking for a number one goalie and taking out the teams that are looking for a younger guy and you have a pretty narrow field. Add in increased supply (Luongo, Vokoun, Harding and possibly Thomas) and you have a clear cut buyers market. I'm not saying he can't get a good return, but its not going to be top prospects, high 1sts or young NHLers.
