All depends on the CBA, but I would love Luongo on this team if it doesn't cost an arm and a leg. You go down the list of #1 goalies in the league and you'll find most of them are in their 30's, I really don't see how 33 is considered that old. I'm not sure why people think he's declining either, he had statistically the best season in his career 2 years ago, and posted a .919 save % last year.

I just think if you can solidify your most important position for the next 5-7 years and not pay anything stupid to do it (like Gardiner or an unprotected 1st), we should do it. I like Reimer, but I see no reason why he can't be a backup for a while, better goalies then him certainly have been.
