No one is questioning that Luongo, in terms of talent, would be an upgrade to Theo. But what it would take to acquire Luongo wouldnt be worth it as an upgrade. Theo is good enough to keep the Panthers in most games and with the production from their forwards starting to become more of a normal sight, they should be able to continue to compete on a nightly basis.
#1 we don't know Gillis' asking price. frankly, I believe it's lower than what the media is having us believe.
#2 as a Panthers fan, you better hope the Panthers make a habit of giving Theo 4+ goals of support from here on out, because if the Panthers are in the playoff hunt (and in the weak East, they will be) and all Theo can give them is average goaltending, you better believe Tallon will want to shore up what he's got between the pipes as the Panthers challenge for a playoff spot/gear up for the playoffs.
