Say what you want about him, but i'd take Lou in a heart beat.
Now getting him is another story.
Idk what it would take but they would have to take craw and frolik to make salary doable

Somebody asked for the idiot to show up, and here I am. I hate that fucktard. I don't want him. I'll go into the season with Emery and just count on losing in the playoffs. Luongo isn't ever going to win a Cup and I'd rather save the money.
There... I said it...

Who Will Win Chicago's 42nd?
Best Chance in 2013: Hidden Content Hidden Content
First off, this line from the story at Yahoo is gold:
Could he deal with 'Chelsea Dagger' in Chicago?
"I like that song. It's catchy. I heard it seven times in one game."
However, he would be an upgrade over Crawford, at least the one we saw in 2011-12. He's been a great goalie for awhile, especially in the regular season.
Still, I'd be worried. Dews likes to use a lot of Zs talking about Luongo being a headcase but I think it's a valid concern.
There are also numbers that worry me with him. Specifically, in the last 3 postseasons, his save % has dropped from his regular season numbers.
2010 - .913 --> .895
2011 - .928 --> .914
2012 - .919 --> .891
He's like the NHL version of pre-2006 Peyton Manning right now. If the Hawks get him, fine. But forgive me if I wouldn't be oozing with confidence with him between the pipes.
But the Hawks winning the Cup with Luongo in net, and maybe even beating Vancouver on the way, could be the biggest in the history of sports.
Warning, the following may be Not Safe For Work or a storyline spoiler.
Would have to be a Campbell like deal if the Nucks want to be rid of him quicker.
But I'm sticking to my guns here.....trading for him is wrong on so many fronts, its ridiculous. I mean he's a Cap train wreck. Didn't we just dump another Cap killer in Campbell? I mean Bowman isn't the best GM right now, do the Hawks need to burden his ass any further with a tight cap. Plus how many goalies past their prime do we have to suffer through, I mean I've had my fill of the Bullins, Huets and Emerys....I'd really like to see them fund a goalie that's at least south of 30. I know the Hawks are in a bad spot with Crawford...I can't say I'm very confident in him myself, but I'd rather hope he turns it around than watch the Hawks put themselves back into Cap hell with an over the hill Luongo.
Luongo will get you 40 wins with at least a .915 save %. I'll take a chance on him
The question is how much is that chance going to cost you? As has been discussed his cap number can be taken care of pretty easily with the current roster, but what does it take to get him from Vancouver?
Luongo's annual cap hit isn't what concerns me, it's his contract lasting through 2022 that does.
