Bingo. You don't want your goaltending to be fluctuating this year. Or being overworked. Consistency is critical. The more times you get great goaltending, the easier it will be get points, even if your offense is sputtering. It's going to keep you in games you had no business being in. That's what you need to get to the playoffs.
I have to believe now that Gillis retains Luongo and pushes it to the deadline if he can, or beyond. It makes little sense to move this guy without seeing at least 10-20 games of the league in action first.
