Luongo is still a top ten goalie, all this talk about him being a burden in nets is ridiculous. He is being run out of town by Vancouver media because they didnt win. If Toronto gets him, they are going to be better team, because they have a better goalie.

Fleury has been a bit inconsistent, but his pedigree and numbers are much better than Anderson. People seem to forget Anderson has a habit of letting in weak goals from time to time and lack in consistency too, if it wasn't for that the top 10 thing might be more feasible. They are close.

Then there are Schneider, Backstrom, Smith, Lehtonen etc... alot of closer contested goalies. Its very easy to say he is not a top 10 goalie in the NHL, which is no slight. He is well above average. Even TSN had him ranked 5th out of 7 Canadian Teams in nets.
