True, but Scott Niedermayer had a much more proven track record and pedigree than Luongo has.

That being said, good on Nonis. He put his stamp on the Canucks and now we'll see if Luongo lives up to his billing. The Canucks have needed a franchise goalie forever, now they have one.

On that note, if i'm correct, that's 13 million now between Naslund and Luongo, no? Seems like a lot for two players, especially when the Canucks defence needs some shoring up on the second pair. Do Canucks fans think that Naslund is gonna be shipped out now?
