Cory Schneider (sp?)?

outside of the too-good-to-resist deal, Schneider won't get dealt to the deadline at the earliest. TB would have to give up more than they have. I can see the Isles moving Nabby first. Turco is an interesting choice.

I bet if Randy Jones wasn't on the roster, it wouldn't be an issue.

They could give Khabibulin another shot if they want to deal with the headache. I doubt the Oilers go anywhere this year anyway.
Off the top of my head, these are all potential number 1 goalies who are in a backup role now.

Schneider is going to cost. I still see a scenario where Vancouver may try to get rid of Luongo first. Rask isn't going anywhere. Thomas has, what 2,3 years left MAYBE...so no. Bernier, well that'll cost too and I don't think any team is going to go all in on a goalie who is all potential and not much else. Neuvirth...that could be, Voukoun has a 1-year deal and they have a kid in the minors who is supposed to be the future...but I still think Roloson is too good of a goalie to give up on. It's early still. they are starting Garon tonight and he can hopefully stop the bleeding at least for a night. Don't count out the Oilers by the way...you keep compiling high draft picks and it's bound to pay off at some point.

What team is gonna take on Luongo? Even if/when he regains his form you still gotta make room for that huge contract and hope he can keep his head on straight for the duration of it.

I know it's fun to joke at the Isles and DiPietro's expense, but it's a legit question.

What teams would be lining up to take that contract on?

Probably nobody. But you never know. I am not sure where Florida's cap is after their roster overhaul but if I had to place odds on a favorite, that'd be it. Now I do not know the particulars but is there anyway that Vancouver can sweeten the deal by kittying up part of Loo's salary? Or can they send cash as well as Loo and a late pick or whatever? It's inconceivable that anyone would buy what really is only a shade better of a deal than Ricky D's, but just because Luongo isn't made of spun glass. Just between the ears.
