Roberto would be considered a band-aid solution to the problems in Toronto. He would push them to compete for the eighth spot in the conference and that's as far as it goes for Luongo. Toronto would be drafting in mediocre positions for the next couple of years and when Roberto declines even further, they will be stuck in the same position.

He wasn't able to get Vancouver or Florida into the playoffs all on his own and there's no reason to think he could do just that for the Leafs.
Wrong! He did so for the 2006/2007 Vancouver Canucks.

That year he played 76 games, won 47 of them while getting no goal support. Was nominated for the Hart & Vezina. That year in the playoffs he put up a 1.77 gaa & .941 Sv%

There is a reason why this picture was made:
