- We still have Luongo as a bargaining chip. I say keep him unless MG gets something that helps our team. Those who said just salary dump him are not seeing what Luongo could is actually worth. I think it's great to hold out a bit into the season and watch some teams struggle with goaltenders and then when they look around for other possibilities, we have their missing piece.
and later on if we are struggling in any of these positions then we can use Luongo to upgrade. And if we aren't struggling at all then perhaps we continue to split minutes with Schneider. Again I said PERHAPS...
I suspect that the way to get a good return for Lou at this point will be to actually play him in hopes of showcasing that he is still capable of being a cup-contending goaltender. Split duties perhaps? But I have no doubts that the fans will rain down on him and otherwise further ensure that they do everything they can to aid in his devaluation. And meanwhile let's hope that a Lou whose heart is no longer in Vancouver can perform. A Lou sitting on the bench will be virtually untradable.
That should produce some comments.
