What if Luongo goes to Toronto...

126 posts in this topic

IMO the Leafs still have a lot to do before they can seriously do some damage in the playoffs even in Luongo goes there. Things like a first-line center I believe.

Have you seen how Toronto hangs their goalies out to dry!? Luongo will personally pay to have Hamhuis and Co. come to Leaf Land and bail him out within a month of signing there ;)

If Lu goes to Toronto, then they will make the playoffs.

I do not want that to happen.

I don't think it's a slam dunk that they make the playoffs. Even if they do, I don't think they have the talent for any L.A. type of run.

I think it will take several more significant changes to turn Toronto into contenders, and I have doubts that will happen any time soon.

The leafs have a good defence on paper. Really good. Its a shame none of them can play well together. If they developed chemistry it would be good.

Schenn, Phaneuf, Liles, Franson would all be much better on other teams.

What do you think?

Luongo winning a cup for TO would be hilarious, sad, and riot-inducing all at the same time.

However, we've seen 'cup moves' in TO before. They all backfired. Cheers.

I agree with many on here. Lou is good enough to get them over the hump and in and thats why Burke needs him, to save his behind. We do know anything can happen once you're in but the leafs just don't have the depth in scoring, even their second line after grabo is not much of anything and then 3/4 drop off alot. Add in a team that really doesn't have a true leader, lacks size, and cohesiveness, well they may squeek in because of a goalie but they don't match up well against Pitt/Washington/NYR/Boston so getting to the cup is highly unlikely for that team for a long while unless....Lou finds himself back in 2006....

Im actually a Canucks(1)/Leafs(2) fan...

Toronto needs a goalie who can steal/win games for them and Vancouver is that.

Toronto won't be looking to move the 5th/Gardiner, but have other valuable assets that Vancouver could be interested in that would be relatively expendable.

No franchise deserves to have such a playoff drought, and both teams have assets that can help eachother.

I think its foolish that people think liles will be better else where but komisarek wont be, When komisarek was on mtl he deserved the money he is making with the leafs today i am confident that when he becomes a canuck he will be a fan favorite much like hamuis is and i also think corey schneider would be happier knowing that no one will get in his way with komi on defense. I have a magazine from 5 years ago which says who will be captain and it has komi and higgi on it I think Komisarek is one out of the three missing pieces to winning a cup the other is a fourth line winger with skill and size and a second line winger.

Based on what? Just because they played for the Habs at the same time?

Besides, Komisarek is under contract, so I believe that would be considered tampering.

If Luongo wants to leave Vancouver because of the way hes treated by the media and/or fans, Toronto would be the last place for him to want to go. Their organization is the one everyone watches and criticizes the most right?
