TheGuardian_ Posted December 6, 2017 Share Posted December 6, 2017 How many teams are looking for really good back ups right now? 4 or 5? For the Canucks, a team that has Demko almost ready and DiPietro in the system, this could be big push in the rewhatever is happening, but if rebuilding then a really big help. I don't know what would happen if the Canucks traded to get Luongo back but this injury could be it, the last one, it would be interesting to trade for him and what would it do to cap recapture? The team would be trading back salary saving Florida money. It isn't like he would even have to show up here, just rehab in Florida. Let's not get hung up with trading FOR Luongo, it was just idle speculation of what it would do in the cap world. The Canucks could have a very much enhanced value in either one of the two goalies here. Demko could be called up and DiPietro moved to the farm, there is also another goalie in the system, I forgot his name, that other college goalie. Some of the teams needing goalies are looking to make the playoffs and jobs might be on the line if they don't have a change in the game results, desperation might be creeping in with each starter that goes down. With a little creativity the return(s) could be very much more than normal. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
