Who's to say that we will make the playoffs for sure with Luongo? Why should we mortgage the future again, just to see moderate immediate success and not even come close to a Cup?
History. History says that. Stats, they say that too.

We're bad trading partners, but it seems to be all Toronto fans in a thread about Canucks goaltenders, so I really don't have an answer.

The pieces we can use, a top six center, playmaking top six winger or right handed top 4 defender, Toronto either doesn't have, or is in no position to move.

I just don't see how the Canucks and Leafs can be trading partners. Canucks want too much for Luongo, Leafs can't afford to give up too much. There's just no reasonable offer.
Bingo! Bad trading partners, terrible, terrible trading partners. It's best left to the other 5 rumoured teams, I think Toronto was listed to sell papers TBH.
