Targeting Luongo would be a mistake for both the Maple Leafs and Oilers

To see if Rynnas or Owuya are going to be the answer.
If Minny is set on Harding and Hackett going forward I would give Backstrom a shot. he's only good for a few years and 55 games a year. So the backup still gets lots of experience.
Kipper is too expensive and I doubt CGY wants to deal with us again. But I wouldn't mind him for just 2 years.
I don't really want to gamble on something unproven, but I don't want to be tied down to somethign like Luongo's deal.
I'm pretty sure the bolded are not the answer - Scrivens is someone worth giving a legitimate look at. Short term vet is the way to go though.
This team is not even close to contending. Why sell the farm for a 33 year old Goalie. It makes no sense except to appease a significant portion of fan base that care only about merely sneaking into the playoffs as an 8th seed - to get bounced in 4/5 games.
