Luongo to Washington

To Washington:
Roberto Luongo
(Jordan Schoeder?)

To Vancouver:
Nicklas Backstrom
(Neuvirth/Holtby?)

The Caps look like they could use some help in the Goaltending department, and at the same time could free up a little cap space by getting rid of Backstrom's monster contract. Mike Ribero and Brooks Laich can resume #1 and #2 C positions if he were to leave. Signing Ribero to a extension would have to be done before making the trade though.

The Canucks need some depth at Center, and are hurting right now without Kesler. They need to get rid of Luongo and he most likely would waive his NTC to go to Washington because its so close to his family in Flordia and Washington has the ability to be a contending team with him in net.

Assuming Holtby or Neuvirth would be coming the other way the Canucks could give up Schroeder to give them a nice center prospect.

What do you guys think? Am I CooCoo for coco puffs?
