As for not being a saviour...he was for us, the year we got him, we were expecting a lottery pick, and we hit round two of the playoffs. The 2013 Leafs is a better team then the 2006-2007 Canucks, so it only follows we think he will make that kind of impact on your team.
Big difference, that was 6 years ago, Luongo was only 27-28. Luongo isn't the same anymore, still good but not good enough to carry this team to anything substantial, let alone a division title like he did with the Canucks that year. Plus, you guys still had the Sedins and Kesler on the roster. Obviously, they were only fractions of the players they are now back then, but they developed nicely. We lack the same level of prospects up front. Canucks were set for centre, we have no one and trading away Kadri and Bozak only makes that worse.

Luongo is not a viable option for this team unless we get him cheap, and that obviously isn't going to happen.
