The goalie market is weak. Couple that with a significant and quite possibly negative contract and that is even worse.

I mean including names like these....:
Exactly. Because they're such a rare commodity. When was the last time a goalie of Luongo's caliber was on the market? It costs a lot to get. It's the most important position in hockey. He's the most consistent goalie of the last ten years. Year in and year out he's in the top of all categories. Among the best of all time in terms of numbers playing on a lot of crap teams for his early years. A lot of goalies have flings and spike seasons. Rarely do they have the constancy and sustainability as Luongo. It's delusional to think you could have him for mediocre players and scraps.
