Should We Try to Get Luongo?

Should we try to trade for Luongo and, if so, what's his value?

I think if he were traded here the universe would implode.

Even if not, the cost wouldn't be worth the gain.

Not sure if serious. I never want him to wear a Blackhawks sweater.

I wouldn't be opposed, but only if we can't sign Vokoun. Trade Crawford away to a team that needs a #1B/backup goalie in return for a bottom 6 grinder that can actually play. Sign Vokoun for $2.5m/1 year.

The list of talented UFA goaltenders available after next season is much lengthier.

Luongo is a solution, but I don't think it happens. Long shot is an understatement.

I'd rather have Schneider. Luongo is not a Stanley Cup caliber goalie.(Just like Crawford, Emery, Huet, etc.)

I would not want another head case goalie. Crawford can be a good goalie he just loses confidence so easily and then we play like crap in front of him. Same thing with Lou, just a bigger longer contract. Obviously Lou is better then Crow when they are on their games but not worth the extra money and years.

Said it in the other thread, I highly doubt Luongo would waive his NTC to come to the Hawks, a team that hates him and he hates right back.

I don't want him here, but he seems like the kinda guy who'd love to come here to spite his old team.

He'd be going from a team/fanbase that has no confidence in him to a team/fanbase that would also have no confidence in him that also despises him. No chance this happens.

Why? Just offersheet Schneider, overpay him, give them the STUPID 1ST AND 3RD ROUND PICK WE DO NOT NEED BECAUSE OUR SYSTEM IS LOADED WITH DEPTH and force them to keep Luongo.

I say yes, we should. Luongo made it to game 7 in the SC finals last year. It's not that he can't go far in the POs...
Depends on what we have to give and maybe get as sweetener, I say yes

if you want to talk like this in fantasy world, get your facts right.

We can't offer sheet him without over own 2nd/3rd Round pick

The 3rd will be easy to get back, non-issue.

maybe, maybe not.

If it would be easy and something Bowman wants to do, he wouldn't have traded it away

Well yeah, no chance in hell Bowman offersheets Schneider. Like you said, it's just a fantasy to talk about. Bowman would never make a move like that.

he's a very good goalie and played very well in the games he played this series. Quick was just a beast. They changed goalies to get a spark from their team not because of Luongo's play. I would like him just based on his talents, but his contract is horrible...far too long. Also it just can't be done given the past history between Luongo and the Canucks, and the Hawks.

He's a good goalie. There would be some upset people in the fanbase, and then Luongo would steal 3 games in a row, and everyone would love him.

I'm not against it, but that contract....

I think Vancouver is going to keep him, unless the Hawks sign him to an offer sheet he can't refuse, which in turns hurts the Hawks cap, and will limit their options for a much needed 2nd line center, and depth.

Could and will. No reason for LA to have two capable goalies when Quick will start ~60 games a year.
