There's no way Luongo comes to Philly unless we find someone to pay enough for Bryz to cover what we give for Lu. Our prospect pool is still pretty dry, so trading draft picks isn't ideal. Roster players higher than the 3rd line are in short supply here too, and we just cannot give up any defenders.

I'm not opposed to it happening. It's not like Bryz is any better in the post season than Luongo. Vancouver deals with any cap penalty if he retires, and if we trade Bryz away we only have one year of him so our cap penalty shouldn't be too bad, unless I've got the rule wrong.

I just don't think it will happen. Toronto is probably willing to pay more than Philly. And if he gets injured and decides not to retire, we get lumbered with his cap hit in the offseasons...that would be annoying.
