The Canucks are in a pretty good situation to start the year with both guys, give them equal competition (which didn't happen last year) and see where it goes. A goalie is never more valuable than near the deadline when teams are scrambling for playoff spot.

Luongo is not holding out or requesting a trade so there is absolutely no reason to make any moves at all.
Genuinely curious: what was the biggest deadline return for a goalie?
