As panic sets in, they start to look desperately for a starting NHL goaltender, any bona fide starter, to keep their Cup hopes alive, and settle on someone with big-league skill, despite his so-so stats and an unjustifiably hefty contract? This is the year for the Leafs, it is their destiny. They know it'll cost them big-time, but they can't wait any longer.
Follow my drift?
Hint: It's not Luongo.
Then the team that trades this goalie to the Leafs ends up getting a poor return for a goalie with sub-par numbers (in 10 games, it bears saying) on a long contract, effectively selling at the lowest point possible, and is stuck with a former 1st round pick who couldn't keep the starting job in a mess of a team, and an unproven backup, and have multiple bottom 5 finishes.
