Roberto Luongo trade rumors: Would Canucks deal with Capitals?
The issue for the Capitals is whether adding Luongo, at his age and cap hit, makes sense this season and in the immediate future. They are already behind the eight-ball in the Eastern Conference, and the Alex Ovechkin-Nicklas Backstrom-Mike Green core hasn’t contended since 2010.
Players Gillis could be interested in: young defenseman Dmitry Orlov and prospect Filip Forsberg. If he’s looking for immediate help along the second line, though, the Capitals don’t have much to offer.
Luongo started the season as the Canucks’ No. 2 but has outplayed Cory Schneider, who re-signed as a restricted free agent last summer.
