That's pretty much what I was thinking. We'll have to see what these goalies will get on the open market, but we could end up seeing a goalie shuffle opening up new potential trade partners for Luongo. As everyone know's for the next 5 years Luongo will have a cap hit of $5.33, and an actual salary of $6.7M. Those are bad numbers for teams like Florida or the Islanders but for teams like Detroit or Minnesota the lower cap hit vs salary is a boon. Should be for Toronto too, but they're sticking to treating the contract like a poor team.
Alternatively, if the Coyotes let Smith walk, I doubt they'd want Luongo for the above reason (unless they move to Quebec which doesn't seem likely) but they could probably put a good offer in for Schneider.
Anyways I don't really see the poll option I want, the middle ground between great and poor return. I don't think Gillis is going to get what he's been looking for this past year, but I think it will be more than the Scrivens + two 2nds things. For example a few weeks ago Vancouver and Maple Leaf fans came to a mutual agreement on a Luongo for Grabovski proposal, and that's the kind of value I'm putting my money on.
