    By falter I mean failed to win the Cup.

    Your hypothetical relies faaaar too much on Luongo. Even Giguere couldn't win the Cup against the Devils after tooling on the entire West.

    Your team would not be decent with a different goalie. You'd be just like you were with Cloutier. A playoff team, surely, But one that goes out in the first round every year.

    You're not a bottom feeder, but you're not a great team by any stretch of the imagination. You'll be lucky to make the playoffs this year, WITH Luongo.

    I didn't respond because I agreed with what you said.

    I'm sorry that I didn't reply with my typical "great post".

    Great post.

    The two deals are much different. The Habs would have lost a lot more. The Pens can handle losing the guys they did.

  4. BruMagnus says:

    you mean you don't want Price to win 40 games in the regular season?

    fascinating! please become the Habs new GM!
