Nothing about a Leafs/Canucks trade makes sense to me. The Canucks are a contender, so they want either something to put them over the top or prospects to increase their chances of staying at the top for a longer window. The Leafs are a rebuilding team. If they go for it with Luongo, it wouldn't make sense to subtract from the lineup, and the prospect cupboard is too barren to trade away.

These two teams are getting talked about so much because obviously the Leafs goaltending has been horrid, Burke/Nonis are ex Vancouver GMs, and any/all big name players are speculated as going to Toronto when available. The media feeds this.
