The Caps should want absolutely no part of Luongo. He's not even the best goalie in Vancouver let alone one of the best in the league and his contract is ridiculous. This season is shot, no reason to shackle the team's next 10 years to try and save it.

Wouldnt be shocked at all if bruke was canned for being linked to Loungo rumors.

Tim Thomas was traded for a conditional 2nd rounder if he un retires.
Im guesing Loungos value maybe less then that at this point.
Totally not an exaggeration. 100% fact right there.
I guess Ovechkin's contract is a franchise killer too.

Is Ovechkin desperately being shopped like Loungo?

We dont want him the same reason you are on our boards peddling your backup goalie like a used car salesman

The other two were good goals. No one defended and Braden's out there alone. When he had some view of the shot and a little D help in front of him, he made good solid stops. He was in good position. His rebound control still needs work for sure, but he didn't suck.
It's about his confidence and his development more than anything. I don't want Holtby to be shaken by the fact that he can't prevent the other team from running up the score, even if the goals aren't his fault. And I don't want him developing bad habit by trying to cover up for pitiful defense.

If he continues playing like this, then Ovie's contract is absolutely a franchise killer.

But it would take the pressure off everyone else. Maybe it would work.

This team has no shot at the playoffs as it stands. So why not.

Let's not act like our goaltending has been stellar in the playoffs. It has become apparent that holtby was a product of the pack it in defense that Hunter hockey was.

LOL. Didn't someone from here propose that trade? That's probably the source.

Probably wont happen, but its a rumor, and 90% of rumors don't come true. If nothing else, at least it seems GMGM is trying to make some moves.

No, the dude tweeted it to Luongo. It's a bunk source.

I would love that trade but I can't see why Vancouver would trade Luongo at this point.

Two things I don't like about Luongo?

He hurts the tank this year and obviously that contract is crazy.

On the other hand he'd be a clear an present upgrade to the roster, and I think the Caps need to start thinking veteran goalie.

Seriously, look at his playoff stats. 2nd round meltdowns. Perfect for this squad! Maybe it'll cancel out!

We neex the team to be better. Young goalies are what they are. Young. That means inconsistant. Neither young goalie will develope as a backup and both are capable of strong winning playoff play. Either keep them both or trade them both.

I went to the canucks board and read their Loungo thread. They think they can get Kuzya, Foresberg and our 1st for lou.

This. Give them some defensive support and let them develop into starters.

Um hasn't this been McPhee's strategy for the last 4 years? How's that working out so far?

Let's find another way to lose for a change rather than the same old crap...
