Also there is no guarantee that Markstrom will be good enough to be a NHL starter (I think he will be and very soon too but the point is valid).
Even ignoring his family connection in Florida I think the Panthers are a decent fit, possibly even more so than Toronto (arguably at least).]]>
Luongo would be an idiot for going to Florida. He will be surpassed by Markstrom in the not too distant future, and have the EXACT same problem in Florida that he is having right now in Vancouver. Toronto really is his best option.
Not that I’m promoting a Luongo to Toronto trade, cuz I don’t even like Luongo….but it’s a way better option for him to go to Toronto rather than Florida.
Markstrom is basically my one and only reason for Luongo not to go to Florida.]]>
I know Leafs fans see my offer has too high but considering they are pieces we will never miss I think we should offer it before a team like Florida (who has 23M in cap space and shouldn’t care about Luongo’s contract) offers up a solid young player and a 1st.]]>
