So since the Luongo talk has died down, does that mean we aren't going after him anymore?

Might be better to find a cheaper, short term solution anyways if Burkie believes in Reimer. What goalies are potentially UFAs this coming offseason?

Nabokov, Thomas, Howard, Theodore, Khabibulin, Smith, Backstrom?

Any I missed?

Hopefully we can snag one to support Reimer along with a 1st/2nd line C. Obviously Getzlaf would be the top dog but I think he'll stay in Anaheim. Zajac or Weiss would be good targets as well. Ribeiro could be available and a decent option but I much prefer the other guys.

Add in a decent draft pick and the future starts looking a little brighter.

I would also be for trading Liles for a comparable defensive defenseman. I like Liles a lot but with Gardiner and Rielly (possibly next year) in the fold as our premier puck movers I think we need more solid defensive guys. Gunnarsson is a good start but we could definitely use another like him. Any team have a surplus of defensive guys and are looking for a puck mover?
