Trade Luongo to TOR for Lupul and Colbourne...Lupul is a UFA and Colbourne a prospect...And Lupul HATES Randy CARLYE...RC said he would never be a top FWD in the NHL when he played in ANA

TRADE LU and go for the cup instead of trying to win a trade!

Arnott is declining quickly. We're almost better off hoping that Malhotra regains pre-injury form than signing Arnott. Lack has had a rough season with the Wolves this year, GAA of 3.00 and .899 save %. If the season started now, I don't think he makes the team. Matt Climie's numbers have been much more repectable than Lack's. Find an extra 500K and we could buy time waiting for the right goalie trade. Toronto hasn't offered us any more than scraps for Luongo, let alone Lupul.

Kesler is months behind on re-habbing from surgery, I'm starting to doubt he'll be back this year, CBA settlement or not. Alberts hasn't show that he can cut it as a #6 D-man. Tanev will probably grab that spot. $400K cap hit for Clark? Are you hoping that league minimum goes down?

Of course, this is all very hypothetical. Without a CBA, no one knows what the landscape will look like if there's a settlement and a '12-'13 season.
