Thornton and Luongo are the only franchise players in the deal.Best player wins deal is what I hear. Colorado gets scamed .If what you call top 2/ top 3 goalie in the league today,Hart Trophy runner up, Triple Gold medal winning future Stanley Cup and Hall of Fame goalie getting "scammed" that is too funny
Jokinen and Bouwmeester straight up would be a little more realistic.
Then again, we don't really know the trade value of these players in the new market. It could end up being Jokinen and a first for Thornton. Who knows?
Yea that's a good point, seeing as how 3rd / 4th round picks have been able to snag decent players recently. And even though i'm not the biggest fan of Bouwmeester, he's probally not going anywhere I think the Panthers not wanting to trade him is what's stopping a trade with St. Louis for Pronger.
