What does 2 WC's have to do with anything?It definitely isn't the Stanley Cup Playoffs.
Right... because Kalinin has the most potential of any player over the last 20 years.

Atleast according to Sabres defenseman James Patrick... and you.

There is no young player in the NHL with as high a market value as Luongo.

He's young and has greatness written all over him.

The future of hockey in between the pipes.

Yeah,maybe decent for Florida.


I'm not going to say Buffalo doesn't need Luongo because sure,he would be a big upgrade in net.But is he worth taking away almost all your future?Do you honestly think he can lead a team all by himself, a la Dominik Hasek?I frankly don't.

Its threads like this one that proves that there are numerous HFBoards members that are seriously mentally deficient.

Its not like Swedish Bolt Fan doesn't speak with a personal bias and people are takin him seriously.

Apparently you didn't watch FL play this yr. He did lead that team all by himself...how else do you think he gets nominated for the Pearson & Vezina trophies otherwise??

But did he lead them to the postseason?Hasek only missed it 2 or 3 times in his career in seasons he was the starter for the majority of the season...

Martin Brodeur wouldn't lead the Panthers to the postseason.

I doubt Dominik Hasek would either.

Well we will never know huh?


And Hasek would do it because he is simply the greatest goaltender to ever play the game and will always be the greatest.

He falls behind Patrick Roy and Ken Dryden.

But he's close.

Luongo will never be a hasek that can take a team that barely belongs in playoff to almost getting the cup

Jeeze, now I know why here in Montreal we traded away Roy for peanuts - there will always be those that can look but can not see. Luongo does not have to wait to be a superstar goaltender, he is one now. And if he stays healthy he'll match or better Roy's, Brodeur's or Hasek's numbers. And everyone forgets that Hasek stunk out the league in his twenties. He became an elite goaltender in the second half of his NHL career. Anyone running down Luongo is either blind or envious or damn I forgot his name - that bonehead G.M. of the Islanders who traded away Luongo.

'mad' mike milbury the muppet.

Luongo will thrash all previous goaltenders numbers baring a lethal accident, or a severe stinking. he seems to thrive on shots. the worse FLA's defense, the better he is lol.

Thats your personal bias coming thru. Most of the league, the writers, the GMs, the true hockey professionals think he deserves to be nominated. And rightfully so when you set 2 records for goaltending in a season regardless of who the team is in front of you. I think people base his value on the team in front of him and not him on his own.

I think the most common mistakes made by posters on these trading Luongo threads is confusing what he's worth literally with what he's worth to Florida. There is a HUGE difference. His value is normal for a good young goaltender. But, his value to us would bring us a disgusting amount of talent. Picks, vets, budding stars and goalies, show us your royal flush and we'll give you a pair. It's that simple.

Hasek stunk out the league in his twenties? He won a Vezina in his twenties, something Brodeur didn't do. Speaking of forgetting stuff, it seems you forgot about this. Hasek didn't become an elite goalie in the second half of his NHL career. His first Vezina season came after his 54th game. To put this in perspective, Roy's first Vezina season came after his 140th game. Hasek became an elite goaltender as soon as he got playing time.
