I know he's not exactly young, but I think he still has a few years in him, and comes together with a .919 career SV% as well as from a .919 SV% season. He seems like a solid goaltender, and I'm thinking maybe for the right price?

We can’t negotiate his cap hit, so NO!

I'm not too surprised and I think its best for Vancouver to go with Schneider over Luongo. No way in hell I would want the Devils to pay what it would take to get him, especially with Brodeur coming back next year and the depth in the system.

Imagine the media sh!t storm it would create if a team like Toronto made a run at him. :giggle:

Well, his contract with the Nucks is for 64 million over 12 years, which comes to about 5.3 million/year. It all really depends on the re-signing of Parise, as well as if Luongo asks for a monster-deal in terms of years, but we just may have the cap space to wiggle him in for, say a 3-year contract anywhere between 15-20 million?

LE: I'm thinking we might want to try and have a go at him, as we are in need of a solid goaltender and I don't see many of his calibre across the league that are willing to be traded.

He's already 33 and under contract with a $5,333,333 cap hit through the 2021-22 season. No way would he be a good investment even if they were giving him away for peanuts.

This is a confused thread start. Reset button. Now: No I don't want to take on Luongo's ridiculous contract. There's a reason he might be traded.

Fair enough, I just wanted to hear a few opinions on the subject, as goaltending is in the spotlight for us at the moment.

No harm done. :D

Great goalie but no thanks. 6 more years at $6,7M is a tad much for a goalie. Unless maybe his name is Rinne, Lundquist or Quick.. :D

I'd listen, but we don't have any terrible contracts I'm looking to get rid of, cept maybe current whipping boy Volchenkov (who has a NTC). I don't think 33 year old goalies with 10 years (really about 6-7 years) and 47 million left on their contracts are good acquisitions, even though Luongo has had a phenomenal career thus far.

Send Kovi to Vancouver and start the defense-out rebuild


This is the only possible trade I'd consider, assuming Vancouver gave more than just Luongo in the trade (this is also highly improbable)

yeah I was just throwing out some nonsense, but if we could move Kovi's crazy contract and get this team financially and structurally sound it might be an idea worth considering.
And I'm not bashing Kovi....just his contract

Kovy's contract is not that bad all considering. The only problem is the length.

Trading Kovy for Luongo would be ridiculous and stupid though ESPECIALLY if we're going to lose Zach. Besides, I'd rather have Schneider than Luongo.

6,7M cap hit for 5th overall on points (and PTS/G) on an offensively challenged team like the Devils playing in the Atlantic division is not a bad contract.

6.7M for a 33 year old goaltender who is a notorious choker and is signed until 2022 is ridiculous and shouldnt even be considered by this franchise. Id rather us bring Clemmer back or go after someone like Josh Harding than even think of trading for Luongo.

People complain about Brodeur around here. Imagine how luongo who has a knack for choking in the playoffs would fare.
