As far as FL being a contender in a yr or 2, I disagree and think it should be at least 3 yrs more before ALL the talent is assembled & ready to compete (playoff caliber team). This would be exactly 5 yrs since Dudley joined the team so I would think thats a more reasonable estimation.
On the matter of Luongo, he may not be the absolute best in the league but he's among the top 10 at the very least with his talent & numbers, considering his situation.
i'm at my g/f's place; when i get back to mine, i'll refrence the article from the herald.
