Contenders don't use a guy that still isn't really all that proven as their #1 for an entire year and run for the playoffs + a rookie back-up if that goaltender falters. The moment Vancouver moves Luongo, they will make another move to pick up a back-up if the ones via Free Agency aren't worthy. That's how contending teams do business. Serious ones anyway.

Also, Lack signed the offer-sheet. He did, he wasn't forced, he wanted to. So speculate as much as you all did with the Weber stuff, maybe he wants to go somewhere he might have a better shot at a #1 job, Chicago seems like a good start.
