I think we can afford both! We have unloaded a lot of players and IF Luongo does go through, I think most are right that possibly Upshall goes the other way. I don't think it's so far fetched that we also get Semin too. Again, if Viner okayed a Luongo deal, why would he say no to bringing In an elite scorer?

Also, quick comment. Dreger had posted on twitter about Brodeur and mentioned him leaving for... Fla... Anyone got any info on this or was he just talking?
