The problem is that Lu's contract is anything but cheap. But Lu would be an upgrade on any goalie they have right now.


Yeah thats why he would go for cheap.

They pay little to get him and he offers elite goaltending for a long time to a team that needs it.

Wow u must have a crystal ball lol... or just a major hate for the goalie that brought ur team from mediocrity to a power house with pride.

and if you stopped living in the past and took your blinders off and lived in the present you'd see where Lou ranks amongst todays NHL goalies. Hes not playing at an elite level and is not likely to improve with technical fixes. No team has stepped up to trade for . Lou., so, maybe you are missing what other teams are seeing. An aging goalie, low end of NHL in stats with an inconsistent history. Even our beloved Canucks have turned to Schneider and relegated Lou to the backup roll.

I can see it now. They buy out Bryzgalov and acquire Luongo.

2nd year with Luongo in Philly and Mason steals his job.

Or maybe if you took your blinders off you would look at stats a little more in depth. Just after last nights game alone Luongo's save % went from .903 to .911. Get rid of that joke of a game against Detroit and his numbers would be the same as they usually are.

Don't give me that Low end of goalie stats, inconsistent crap. You know teams would be lining up for Lou if he was a free agent against all the other goalies available. It's his contract, plain and simple.
