We don't need nor want your better untradeable Luongo.Your stuck with him.
2 years ago your awesome team came 3rd last in the league. This year they barely made the playoffs because of Price ******** the bed down the stretch. If it was an 82 game season, they would've probably missed the playoffs.

He has a full season under his belt albeit in a shortened season. So that has to count for something. He also had insane stats this year and has had them for 3 years now (yes I know in a backup roll).

You will see for yourself just how good he is this year playing for one of the best defensive teams in the league.

As far as Luongo goes, the Canucks were unable to trade his dumbass contract for two years straight and were forced to trade Schneider because of it. Now some of you fans act as if it has acual value. Here's the deal, Luongo's contract has NEGATIVE value and it always will because of it's length and the headache it will cause when he retires.

In terms of ability, right now I think the two are on par. So as far as the original deal is concerned I think the Habs would have to add a 2nd to 3rd round pick or B level prospect, but nothing more. In fact, I'm not even sure if the deal is fair for the Habs without adding.
Luongo and Price are not the same ability wise, Luongo is better. Price however has more trade value because of his age and because of Luongo's contract.
