That is the reality, and you are right about one thing, there is risk in aquiring him.
There is risk in everything being offered too. What if Kadri busts? Bozak/Lupul/Macarthur walk? Kulemin remains a 7 goal scorer? Etc. Luongo is by far a surer bet to be an impact player than any package offered by fans here.
