Free! You surely don't mean that. The problem with Luongo in 4 years is worse than the problem that Van is having now. He is not a fit on this team now and he will be less of a fit down the road. There has to be another solution than taking on a terrible, terrible contract. I hope Nonis can be more creative than that. If Nonis trades for this guy I want Nonis gone. I feel cap space will be more precious down the road when the Leafs are trying to sign guys like Gardiner and Reilly to NHL size contracts. The thought of paying that size a cap hit to a dude sunning himself in Florida after he is well and done makes me crazy!
