Sign Vokoun for 2 years and then re-assess. Gives much more flexibility with the amount of good young goalies in our system, plus Vokoun would have a smaller cap hit.

This team won't be close to a contender in the next 3 years. Why trade for a goalie who will be ready for retirement once the team is ready to compete?

I didn't like his personality and handling of the media. He seems to provide a lot of ammunition to the opposition through his antics.

Almost sounds familiar with this whole Luongo situation only that the Leafs would give up little assets (just like Giguere trade) and would be stuck with Luongo's salary/cap hit for another 9 years whereas Giguere was only one year.

Hedberg is the right choice for the Leafs at this time to help mentor and help Reimer.
With Hedberg and Reimer, there will probably be another 9th or 10th place finish. Go big or go home.

i suspect lu will be in Vancouver for one more year. personally, i would give one more shot with vancouver with a full rest period and healthy roster. those guys were dead tired and had no time off. same with boston. you could see how dead they were...

the season is far too long. should only be 60 games at most IMO.

lol really? That was so tame. He wasn't even really critiquing Thomas, he was just contrasting their styles.

What is this? I don't even.. ?

Some people are just stuck in their ways I suppose. I don't think you'll find too many fans completely enamoured with the idea of acquiring Luongo but logical posters notice the positives, as well as the negatives, and won't resort to calling Luongo a 'plug' or seem to think that he'll still garner a solid return. I swear reading some of the stuff from stubborn posters makes me actually

Ya, that Ed Belfour, man he was great with the media. WTF cares about Damien Cox or how he dealt with those jackals in Vancouver. WTF cares.

Luongo here would be unreal. He'd be such a leader for Reimer.

i'm slowly getting more interested in this idea - it makes sense from a lot of angles, the most obvious being that this market seems to need a quality veteran goalie (bad place for youth - main reason I fully support Burke being extra cautious with bringing guys up to the big team until completely ready.) i don't think i'd force them to take a contract dump back if they traded him for a 3rd (they can have a 2013 2nd if they take Komisarek)

@RealKyper #SNPlayoffs #Canucks Luongo asks for trade. Van didn't even need to ask him to waive NTC. He tells them himself in exit meeting he wants out

Ask Ottawa, Florida, Phoenix, New Jersey, and to a lesser extent St.Louis what they thought of their team being a contender in 2012. With a little added toughness, Carlyle's defense and goaltending, this is probably a playoff team.

The trick to get your mind around this potential trade, Luongo will retire long before this deal runs out.

Now that we know for a certainty that Luongo no longer wants to play in Vancouver, what's everyone willing to give up for him?

if he does this it will be pretty hypocritical, considering his stance on circumvention contracts, which this obviously is.

He's not giving the contract, just taking it on. He's only ever complained about giving out new contracts that circumvent the cap. There's no real hypocrisy here...

I'm so used to cheering against Luongo. He always met my expectations in losing at key times. I had a big time problem with liking him or giving him credit when he played on team Canada. If he plays for the leafs he will be mine and every other leafs' fans' target. A pure lightning rod for hate.

I think he's better suited for Tampa, Columbus, or the Islanders.
If he came to Toronto and put up a .916SV%, the fans would pull a u-turn very quickly.

perform well, and the fans will come back in droves.

Who cares. His whole stance on those contracts is ridiculous to begin with.

Ken Holland is arguably known as the greatest GM in the sport, and he pioneered the cap circumventing contract. That should tell you everything you need to know about it.
