Question for anyone wanting to deal Luongo at the deadline...would you be willing to trade him to the Oilers if they were fighting for that 8th playoff spot? How about the Sharks or Hawks if their goaltending had been inconsistent? Because these would be playoff teams (or bubble teams trying to become playoff teams) it's not likely they're giving up big pieces from their top 23, so it would likely be futures coming back. I dunno, save for a return that seems unlikely for a playoff team to give up, I'd think the entire Western Conference would be off limits at the deadline.
Depends on the return but yes. Even at the risk of facing Luongo, if the offer was good. You have to take it. What I hope is we buy quality wingers at the deadline from teams out of the hunt, like say, Montreal and Gionta/Plekanec.
