Putting Luongo on the Oilers in 2012 makes them better at a time they can't possibly win (teenagers don't win Stanley Cups). Unfortunately, it also makes them substantially worse when they are ready to compete; with $5.3 million in cap space tied up in an aging (likely mediocre by that time) goaltender and key assets like Hemsky and a first squandered.
For all the flack Steve Tambellini takes on these boards, he'd have to be operating at a Jay Feaster level of incompetence to make that deal. Call me an optimist but I don't think he's that dumb.
lol, Feaster is 3 times the GM tambellini is.
