That is the only way he makes sense.

Luongo is better than a lot of people are saying around here and his value would go back up with this retirement money ideas. On the flip side the Wings have a goalie that is very good, it doesn't make us good trade partners. It isn't the typical cornering you have got from a lot of fanbases trying to completely devalue Luongo. It is more people pointing out aside from the sophomore slump how good Howard has been. He was in the Vezina conversation before Kesler slashed his hand after the all-star game in early February.

You think Wings fans are slighting Luongo. I think you are slighting Howard.
The deal that makes sense would be Luongo (lifetime contract) + Edler (upcoming UFA) for Franzen (lifetime contract) + Howard (upcoming UFA). Although I wouldn't have any interest in that from a Canucks perspective.
