Rolling the dice on Dubnyk rather than tossing out one of the big 4 to acquire Schneider is a given, but if you CAN acquire a great goalie at a bargain price you certainly should.
I think Luongo is still a solid goalie, but his contract scares me. The Oilers can't risk dealing with something like that, especially if all of the young talent pans out. There's also uncertainty in the CBA and I wouldn't want to be stuck with massive cap hits when Luongo is barely playing / is retired.
If he had a 5 year, $6m per year contract, I'd definitely trade Hemsky for him.
