You guys have a solid goaltender ready to take the stage. They don't have a fix for Lupul but will sacrifice to have better goaltending.
Lupul's value to the Leafs doesn't matter to the Canucks. What matters to the Canucks is whether or not the Leafs are offering what we want for Luongo, and what we need to address our holes. I don't think the Leafs and Canucks make great trading partners, although a deal can be done.
