2) You could have Connolly or Lombardi.. both are stop gaps. Unfortunately, the Leafs can't afford to give anyone else up at this point.
3) Leafs don't really have high end forward prospects outside of Kadri. As part of the deal.. I'm fine with that.
Yeah none of these are quality assets that are worth Luongo. Not denying Liles doesn't bring the components we need as a secondary need, but he isn't worth Luongo.
