Luongo was easily the best backup in the entire league last year.

He is your guy.

Nashville
Roberto Luongo

Vancouver
Shea Weber

Shea Weber is on a terrible contract, and is a serious buyout candidate.
He might be able to prove the haters otherwise and show he is worth that kind of money with a change of scenery in Vancouver. Vancouver really likes BC players, and I am pretty sure Shea Weber is from America which is close to BC.

Nashville gets one of the best backups in the league. This guy could be a starter on most teams, and would really solidify the goaltending in Nashville (which to be honest has been very suspect, and could use an improvement).
Nashville also gets younger in this deal, and adds a Canadian Olympic Player.

Frankly I think most Vancouver fans would turn this deal down. I know Nashville is looking for a backup, but I don't think Roberto Luongo is on the market. Nashville would probably have to add something like a 1st round pick for us to take on Webers salary.
