They speculated on who might be available. Harding came up, as well as Bernier and Schneider. They also mentioned if Luongo falters during the playoffs he might become available.

Pretty attractive if you ask me -- let's get the goalie that has sucked the last 2 years and has a 10 year contract. How 'bout if Luongo sucks we see him for what he is -- a goalie that has never won anything -- and we let Vancouver keep his contract.
Yea, his name was so briefly mentioned.

Why do some people here try to make out Luongo as some sort of terrible goalie
, the leafs need somebody to get them to the playoffs, and Luongo has been an elite goalie in the regular season for awhile now.

Luongo on toronto would be the perfect fit.

The guy has went from overrated to underrated, he has been the canucks MVP this year.
Because we watched the playoffs last year.

I don't consider taking your team to game 7 of the stanley cup finals, choking.

This. I don't like the Canucks and their fans but Luongo is easily a top 5 goalie in the league.

We're not going to get him and we shouldn't because our defense is not up to scratch.

They're a terrible group...and Luongo would have stats of an average goalie with the Leafs even if he stole games.

You can't win if you don't score goals, so...Luongo is hardly the problem for the Canucks.

Well chocked in boston would be more fair of a comment. Luongo was good in the playoffs, but he **** the bed IN boston.

Then again he got two SHO in the cup final also.

after game 5 he was considered by a lot of people a con smyth favorite (with timmy of course).

You know who had a tough time winning in Vancouver before Game 7?

Tim Thomas.

Both teams won their home games before Vancouver lost the last one.

Luongo is underrated. I would love to have him on our team.

^ I said Schenn + Frattin. Anything more and we can't afford it.

But if you look more closer, those games were only 1 goal games, in Boston the Nucks got smashed, in Vancouver how did they win? Game 1 was a 1-0 win with like 19 seconds left in the third, game 2 was a bad turnover and game 5 was a 3-2 win, this obviously shows you how bad Luongo is on road games.

NO way, Luongo is terrible! Keep him far from Toronto. he is way too inconsistent. He would be exposed here in Toronto with our defense.

Excellent but with our pourous defense i dont think it really matters if "little Billy" played net for us.

Unless they don't take Kommi back lol

A defence that can't defend and an offense that gets only around 17 shots most nights. I'd say goaltending is further down the list of needs.

Luongo will not be able to make it here. Too much pressure!!!

He'll be a big flop if he comes here. Just watch!!!

It doesn't matter how you win though. A win is a win. Especially in the Cup Finals..

That would be so impulsive.

They need to get a goalie without a stupid contract.

I have no problem with Luongo at $5.2 million. I don't see a NMC so i'm okay with term.

I doubt Luongo would want to play for this team. They leave their goalies out to dry.

Won't have too many options if he stinks up another playoff series

Pretty good odds he'll do it again this year

I thought he was paid more, changes my opinion. I'd love for Luongo to Toronto, but I'm afraid of what it'd cost. Either way TSN was just speculating.

Would love Luongo, as long as its a "soft" deal, due to the contract. I would give up some value of course, but it wouldn't be what he is truly worth because of that monstrous contract.

Luongo washed up and paid till 42.

But nice try.Vancouver has asked for Kadri,Schenn,Frattin and 2 first rounders if To. finishes low enough.Burke has asked if he can give more as he wants to make sure he completely destroys Toronto,much like Hitler did for Germany.The propaganda machine has already started trying to massage the gullibile Leaf fans brains.Unless Burke is fired soon,Bell and Rogers will hold the bag.
