Good thing I believe is we won't give up what Vancouver wants for Luongo. Homer had problems reportedly including Coots or Schenn for Weber, he most likely won't for Luongo. If he does, I will personally see him my self. Just to talk of course.
I don't understand it. His cap hit is slightly lower than Bryz, but his contract is longer. We can't amnesty Pronger because he'll never pass a physical again. I doubt they amnesty Briere because everyone in the org. loves him. So with that being said, how in the blue hell will they:
A) Get any sort of cap flexibility without blowing the roster up
B) Find enough money to give G his extension...and Coots/Schenn after that if they pan out
C) Find a top pairing-caliber replacement for Kimmo
So we're going to bring over a 30+ goalie on a bad contract who's a headcase to replace the 30+ goalie on a bad contract who's a space cadet? Really?
Luongo is superior to Bryzgalov in every facet, including a better cap hit. Bryz was made to look a lot better than he is thanks to Phoenix's stingy team defence concept - now the same is happening with Smith.
Luongo on the other hand in an all-pro goalie that has been the best in the league at his position over a 10 year stretch. I would seriously think about dropping 100 bucks on the Flyers to win the cup if they got Luo.
