To be fair to Luongo

Its only vs Hawks and Bruins in playoffs that he looked downright putrid

Against rest of NHL might perform better

Exactly. Although, he did have a few stinkers in the regular season against other teams, but that happens to everyone at some point.

He is fun to make fun of though.

Which made it pretty funny in the SCF, since all we heard from Vancouver fans (and media) was how the Bruins had no "elite" offensive players.

We'll never know I guess. If he wanted to blow it all up....yes.
If he thought BobbyLou would make them a winner (even w/ what they have to give up)....no.

Dave Nonis is the next GM of the Toronto Maple Leafs. Unclear whether that is interim or unconditional appointment.
If they do end up getting rid of Kessel I am going to

exactly my thought. What team can he go to that we can trade him Thomas for a couple of 1sts and a 2nd.

It would all depend on what they had to give up to get him. But, the Leafs have been missing 2 major parts for a long time; Goalie and #1C. They have a shot at getting one of those right now.

Thought the same exact thing...Both players need a change, although Phil played far better last year then he ever has.... Knew where the D zone was for once without the help of Google Maps... The weightroom on the other hand..

Luongo is a very slow starter and his best month statistically is December, so too bad he missed that month. I would believe if the Leafs got Luongo they would be a
7th-9th seed.

With Reimer and Scrivens in net that is another story, too unproven.

The Leafs need a goalie with experience and what if Reimer or Scrivens goes down due to injury who then, Peter Ing?

Maybe when people say weight room, he thinks wait room, like at a restaurant.

I dont disagree that what the Leafs need. But again, what do they give up to get him?

He was great in FLA too. Crappy team in front of him though.
It doesnt help if you rob Peter to pay Paul.

I dont know how they get him without weakening themselves somehow. Unless they have prospects I'm missing.

I don't believe that for a second. If that were true, they would have canned him 3 months ago.
