2.Botta wrote when the Flyers were shopping Carter and the isles were shopping their high lottery pick, that his long term contract was a turnoff for the NYI. They'd been burned on the Yashin/DiPietro longterm deals.
I can't see the isles interest in Luongo's longterm deal.

3.I doubt Luongo waives his NTC to return to LI.

4.Snow has said he's sticking with his youth movement, expect more youngsters to make their way onto the roster. Trading a 24 yr old core player and their top two prospects for a 30 something yr old, is the exact opposite of what Snow wants to do.
While you're here, if you don't mind me asking what's the story behind Ness and Donovan? Either of them expected to make the jump anytime soon? I think Gillis will be looking to move Ballard this summer, and probably wants a cheap, young guy to replace him. Not asking in terms of value, just in terms of current projections.
