That's certainly a very debatable topic. I feel Luongo's importance to this team is somewhat underrated by most.

- elite #1A/B with Schneider
- in the future will continue to be a very good #1A/B

- currently is a tweener, he should bolster our 2/3rd line
- in the future he will continue to be a tweener IMO

- might crack the roster (IMO will not this year)
- in the future he might end up a solid 1st liner/could potentially bust

- no help in the present
- could be a good pick 3-4 years down the road or could be a bust.

I don't think there is any way to say Kulemin/Kadri/1st help us win more right now but a case could be made for the future. The impact of an elite netminder even as a #1B option is much more than 2 tweeners.
