Vancouver is going with young goalie Cory Schneider in the upcoming NHL season and have made plans to trade veteran Roberto Luongo, but the asking price for the 33-year-old has driven teams to look elsewhere, but things could change as training camp approaches.
Toronto needs an experienced net-minder as the Maple Leafs look to break a long drought of not making the playoffs and a trade between the Canucks and Leafs is a no-brainer, but only if Vancouver drops the asking price.
Luongo went 31-14-8 last season with a 2.41 GAA and the former first round draft pick has won 339 games during his career and Leaf fans would love for the team to add a premium goalie for the upcoming season.
With the start of NHL training camps just around the corner, look for plenty of moves by teams looking to strengthen their rosters over the next few weeks and Toronto is one team that has needs that need filling. GM Brian Burke is on the hot seat and adding Luongo would make this one of the top teams in the Eastern Conference and making the post-season would give Burke and his staff some breathing room for at least one more year.
