Do you think there is a chance that Brian Burke is sitting in his office wondering if Luongo is a good goalie? Or do you think he is weighing the benefits of giving up young talent for a soon to be 34 yo goalie who is signed forever and like it or not has shown a tendency to have massive playoff meltdowns at unfortunate times. Never mind the fact that NOW isn't really the time for the Leafs.

The Leafs would be stupid, chronically stupid, to overpay for Lu. Now maybe they are stupid, but I wouldn't count on it.
To repeat a point you continually ignore: the Leafs are a playoff team last season with league average goaltending. Stupidity isn't making sure you get Luongo: stupidity is Brian Burke's career-long track record of using sub-standard goaltenders.
