And since you can't expect to win a cup the first year you start competing, all of a sudden we are left with a window of 5 years at most, more likely 1-3 years of a window before all of a sudden we are now looking for another goalie to help us win the cup.
Luongo did a pretty good job mentoring a goalie recently... and 37 year old goalies can win a cup. I would also encourage baby steps for the Leafs, seems a little silly to be talking cup before you have a playoff team.
