I would compare this to if we traded Mike Richter for Eddy Belfour in the early nineties. While Mike Richter was home grown, Eddy was more established and 2-3 years older. In the grand scheme of things, would you of traded what ended up to be a Ranger for life for an established upgrade.
Now many are going to opine that Lundqvist will surpass Luongo and set the world ablaze. Nonetheless, Luongo is MORE established in the NHL. If the moons aligned tomorrow, would you trade Lundqvist for Luongo straight up. Home Grown vs. Heralded SuperStar.
*Please don't post "they'll never do it"; this isn't the spirit of the thread*
I would trade Lundqvist for Luongo in heartbeat. Lundqvist had a good first season but I doubt he'll keep that up once the league catches up with him, much like the Devils did in the playoffs. I wasn't impressed with King Henrik at all and if you can get Luongo for a guy who struggles when the playoffs come around I would do it.
I also think you guys would have to give up more than just Lundqvist. Good luck with draft guys.
