Leafs fans DO have a point about Luongo not likely to return full value, they've just taken it too far with giving us their garbage.

Honestly, all I expect out of a Luongo trade is a fantastic role player or some solid player who can actually contribute and be a somewhat key member of the team. Kulemin would be one of those guys, IMO-- he'd be like adding another Higgins or Hansen to this team, which would be excellent.

I just have no interest in adding Bozak or Kadri to this team whatsoever (even if we're giving up significantly less than Luongo)

Sedin - Sedin - Burrows
Higgins - Kesler - Booth
Kulemin - Lapierre - Hansen
Raymond - Malhotra - Kassian

Hamhuis - Bieksa
Edler - Garrison
Ballard - Tanev


Looks like a very strong lineup to me.
I expect that and a pick, minimum. Kulemin + conditional 1st is the bare minimum that i'd consider reasonable for Luongo.

(Of course the condition is it's a 2nd if the Leafs miss the playoffs yada yada).
