So then the GM has to decide what is fair value for Luongo. Personally, I can totally understand why no Leaf fans would want to trade a player like Gardiner, but if the teams were reversed, I'd give up Edler for Luongo ... with some misgivings because I really like Edler, but with a huge hole in net and the chance to get a guy that brings that kind of consistency to the position would be impossible to forego.

Losing because your team simply can't score enough is frustrating for sure, but losing because your clubs goalie can't make the basic saves just kills everything.
