Not advocating either way on whether or not Toronto should trade for Luongo, but I thought it'd be interesting to point out some stats, especially for those who think Luongo is done as a prime starting goaltender.

Here are Luongo's stats over the last 5 years.

Luongo
11-12: 55gp / 2.41 / .919
10-11: 60gp / 2.11 / .928
09-10: 68gp / 2.57 / .913
08-09: 54gp / 2.34 / .920
07-08: 73gp / 2.38 / .917

In that same time period, here are the stats for the Leaf's goalies.

Leafs' Goalies
Reimer (11-12): 34gp / 3.10 / .900
Gustavsson (11-12): 42gp / 2.92 / .902
Reimer (10-11): 37gp / 2.60 / .921
Giguere (10-11): 33gp / 2.87 / .900
Gustavsson (09-10): 42gp / 2.87 / .902
Toskala (09-10): 26gp / 3.66 / .874
Toskala (08-09): 53gp / 3.26 / .891
Toskala (07-08): 66gp / 2.74 / .904

Only Reimer's season in 10-11 even comes close to Luongo's stats last year (as a split starter with Giguere). To find a season by a Leaf goaltender that was better than what Luongo did last year you have to go back to pre-lockout and see Belfour's season. Coincidentally that season was the last time the Leafs made the post season.

*Belfour (03-04): 59gp / 2.13 / .918 (last time the Leafs made the playoffs)

Obviously there were a lot of different factors besides goaltending stats in making the playoffs, but it's still interesting to look at.
