It is more logical for MG to move 1 goalie for the best offer available, instead of sit on 2 high-calibre goalies and risk running out of skater-depth down the stretch and in the playoffs, despite what VanWest will tell you about how great it is to have 2 star goalies for 1 goalie position
How's this for logic.
Is the team better off with Bozak and a second or Luongo?
It's a pretty easy answer for me although some posters seem to feel that the teams with two subpar goalies are in the driver's seat here. I think you're mistake is assuming that any return for Vancouver is an improvement over the status quo. That's not logical. You need to look at the negative of losing a top goalie and see if the positive of acquiring a player exceeds it.
