And not to mention it would give them a top-5 goalie on a solid contract, which they also need.

In Toronto who knows how Luongo's emotional health would be. He, a strong ego, would have to line up against guys like Phaneuf and of course Burke. I don't like the combination of Luongo and the pressure he would face in Toronto. Does not seem productive for either side.
A guy who has played in a gold medal game on home soil and played in a game 7 SCF wouldn't be bothered by pressure in Toronto. In fact, I'd think that he would relish the challenge and the kudos if the team made the playoffs. Luongo is a pretty confident guy.
