I agree that Luongo would theoretically be the best goalie in T.O. since the lockout and might get the Leafs into the playoffs. However, he has had issues in the post season, and in my opinion, it is not prudent to squander young talent for immediate help when your team is not on the cusp of being a contender.
Considering that Vancouver is in win now mode and the albatross contract that comes with Lou, I think it's entirely reasonable to send 1-2 bad contracts (for players that can still contribute now) the other way that are about to expire along with a decent prospect.
Bozak/Connolly/Lombardi, Komisarek, and a 3rd/mid level prospect.
Anything above and beyond does not make sense from the Leafs' perspective and quite frankly, I have a hard time envisioning any team giving up a top 6 forward, a top prospect, and a high draft pick for Luongo given the circumstances.
