    Well he fell on his face after the boasts he made and got stuck with Kadri. There is no way he wanted Kadri.

    You don't need to defend anything the marlies made it to the finals last year and barring major injuries they will be there once again. People just talk up there arce about leafs. You either like them or despise them. Leafs have good prospects.

    That's where you might be wrong.
    Without NHL hockey this year, the NHL youngsters that haven't gone to the KHL are playing in the AHL. Much higher talent than last year.

    Isnt that why Burke took Kadri as a F U to Murray who in the previous draft jumped ahead of Burke to get Karlsson, the guy Burke wanted?

    either way its alittle off topic. As a Sens fan i hope this is a bs rumour, Lou in toronto scares me alot more then any of their current roster or farm system.

    yes, "struggling" is the perfect term for a goalie who has been just as good or better than his HOF worthy career averages over the past two years.

    Mild success....

    2009/2010-London Knight 93 points in 56 GP
    2010/2011-Toronto Marlies 41 points in 44 GP
    2011/2012-Toronto Marlies 40 points in 48 GP

    51 NHL games with 19 points.

    Please, show me how this is "mild success".
    That looks like the profile of a successful AHL player. Problem is, to crack the top 6 of a lineup you need to be much better than that. That was exactly my point. The most common problem in the world for offensive players is that they aren't good enough to crack a top 6 (and definitely not good enough to crack the Canucks top 6, which is THE POINT) and they don't have the grit or the work ethic or the orientation to turn into checkers.

    Unbiased fans: Luongo is top 5, worthy of a nice package.
    Luongo had one of his best years last year. He's available because we have this other guy named Schneider, who just happened to be better. That doesn't suddenly make Luongo garbage. It's a joke how people lose perspective by only reading headlines.

    Exactly, and the Canucks don't need third liners. We have those coming out of our ears.

    Thank you. From an unbiased fan, not a Leafs or Canucks fan, just someone who sees that Luongo has actually been stellar. He has not been "struggling". If struggling means winning a gold medal against the best in the world, I'll take it. Last year he was outstanding, and as Pfeifer noted, he played very well in the playoffs. The move to Schneider was more coaching strategy than a benching. AV was trying to light a fire under the ***** of the forwards, not the goalie. It was a team shakeup move.

    I agree with everything...The only thing holding Vancouver back from winning in the playoffs is the disappearance of the Sedins when the game gets rough. Kesler tried to make up for it the year they lost against Boston but he hurt himself carrying the offense for the first three rounds. None of those years were Luongo's fault, quite the opposite, he kept them in until they finally scored. If Vancouver had of won the cup that year it might have been Luongo who would have won the Conn S trophy. Vancouvers failings don't fall on Luongo's shoulders.

    Last couple of years???? He was up for the Vezina in 2010-2011... 2.11 GAA, .928 Save %. If you are going to say something blindly, at least do a little research...Last season was not too shabby either btw. 2.41 GAA, .919 Save %. Not bad numbers at all. He's still a great player. I don't get why some people are too blind to see it.

    And he did this on a team that plays wide open. If you look at prob 80% if the times he gets lit up, his defence craps the bed and its a couple quick goals where the back side winger is left wide open because our team could care less about back checking. I like Schneider and think he is the logical choice to go forward but Luongo is still the better goalie by a fair margin in my opinion.

    I agree Luongo is better right now than Schneider, and if I was a Canucks fan I would be kinda worried about letting him go and banking on Schneider to become Luongo, however Luongo's cap value is keeping Vancouver from adding another top 6 forward to the team or a top4 D man, so the payoff might be worth it. I think everyone just needs a change, it seems as though Vancouver has kinda pegged their losing playoffs on either Luongo or atleast his contract and if Schneider can do the job and they can add someone they might be better off. Having said all that Luongo is still an elite goalie.

    You put it perfectly. It's all about what they can add without losing much at the goalie position. They can't really afford not to get immediately help because to be honest, the window is closing very quickly on this team.

    As a Leaf fan, I think he's a top ten goalie (not top 5, someone else did a pretty good list with Rask, Rinne, Price, Thomas, oh yeah a guy named Lundquist (sorry on the spelling)) but I also am familiar with the basics of commerce. One (maybe two) destinations and you need to move him? No way you are going to get "fair" market value. Even worse, you are going to need to suck up some salary from the other guy.

    Anyways with the lock-out going the way it is, Luongo is going to be 35/36 before hockey starts again....

    There are at least four teams interested, Toronto, Chicago, Florida, Edmonton. I would actually like to see him go to the oilers. The package would most likely be the best and I wouldn't mind seeing him as a rival even though that team would be really good really fast.
