Making **** up never bolsters an argument. Luongo has never suggested he would retire during his contract.

luongo is 34 in april

the other goalies are in their twenties and on good contracts
Goalies, in general, take longer to develop and if they are good and stay healthy, play longer than positional players. There numerous examples of goalies playing very well into their late 30's and early 40s.

these are all factors in his value--whether canuck fans like it or now

I feal like getting flamed

one for one deal

Eberle for Luongo

If canuck fans think they will get say Eberle, petry something else and a first rounder for Luongo--you are sadly mistaken.

Only problem is Luongo playing in Edmonton--his wife wont like it
Again with the making *** up. No one suggested Eberle. Not flamed, just shredded.

It's reasonable to assume that an elite player in the prime of his career returns high value when traded. Luongo's contract is not an issue over the planning horizon of any current GM.
