i think a good spot for luongo would be phoenix, im sure he would sell some tickets and he obviously likes hot places(florida) phoenix's goaltending is really bad, both their goalies are doing terribly and aren't getting any better. Chad Johnson did have a shutout in his one game, however he has played less then 10 in his whole career.
Luongo, Schroeder, 4th for mike smith/La Barbera, Korpikoski/bissonette, hanzal
So phoenix gets a good goalie and we get a pretty crappy goalie, but atleast they're inexpensive at 2m or 1.5m. They both have only 1 year left and im sure by next year Lack will be ready. We obviously need to take one to give them room for luongo, and for canucks to have a backup. Korpikoski/bissonette is the real value of the trade- both great prospects, young, playing well. And Hanzal fits that 3rd line center spot perfectly. He's 6"6, 240, and a great checker. He can score some points shown by last years playoffs. Hes laso 25, and at a reasonable 3.1 caphit for 5 years. To fill in that void we trade Schroeder, hes good but we dont need him if we have hanzal, and hes small and canucks are trying to get big.
Some additional notes: I realize Luongo might not want to go to Phoenix, but i think he would because there is way less pressure, and it is that extra bit closer to home
what do you think, this is my first attempt
