So depth isn't important? You wouldn't take a player like JVR because we already have two (Booth and Kassian) who occasionally can play the role of physically imposing scorer?

Luongo for Phaneuf makes more sense for both teams.
Phaneuf's cap hit is massive and as the only Leafs fan who posts regularly in this thread stated, they can't spare defensemen.

Trading for Luongo for Phaneuf would simply be a matter of trading one cap problem for another from the Canucks standpoint.

As soon as Phaneuf comes in, Alex Edler is your sixth highest paid defenseman at $3.25m and due a massive raise; the Canucks would have to dump Keith Ballard and probably someone else too in order to accomodate Phaneuf.
