Disagreed.

To me, if the Leafs are giving up that much for a goalie, I want someone younger who will fit with the team age better and doesn't have a contract until the age of 43.

Alternatively, I'd be down for a cheaper veteran goalie who can help fill the gap until Reimer is ready to sink or swim.

Let me clarify my position a bit: The attractive things about Luongo to me were a) a veteran upgrade in net and b) the potential for giving up a cheap return due to contract length and the reported request for a trade. If Vancouver fans are right and b) is off the table, the allure is significantly lessened for me. Call me crazy, but I think that does make a bit of sense...no?
