So Florida is trading one of their only scorers for Luongo, a guy they
Florida's top 6 still needs work, and their young guys could still use a couple seasons before I think they'll be doing any serious damage. Why bring in a goalie who will be mid 30's by then when you have what many scouts have been calling "the best goalie not playing in the NHL" sitting there waiting for his chance.
Mind you, I feel very similar about the Luongo to Toronto rumors, although they don't have the high-end goalie prospect, it still seems like by the time the rest of the team would be ready to compete that Lou would be getting pretty up there age wise.
And now with the info about how both teams would be punished for the deal Vancouver gave Lou, I don't see how all of a sudden Lou's value increases.
