Blues Now Interested Roberto Lungo

[1]Neither club can address the Blues goaltending problems. The Leafs lost James Reimer for at least a week to a knee injury, while the Flyers have no depth of their own to use as trade bait.

TrueHockey.com’s Andy Strickland claimed the Flyers need scoring, while the Blues could use a defenseman. One of the Blues’ struggling young forwards might benefit from a change of scenery, but the Flyers have little to spare from their injury-ravaged blueline to offer in return.

More imaginative observers link the Blues with Vancouver Canucks netminder Roberto Luongo.

St. Louis has the cap space to absorb Luongo’s contract and a depth in young talent to interest the Canucks, plus Halak ($3.75 million) and Elliott ($1.8 million) have only a year remaining on their contracts.

Such a move, however, depends on Armstrong’s level of desperation, Luongo’s willingness to go to St. Louis, and whether or not Blues ownership wants to invest in a 33-year-old goalie with an average annual salary of $5.33 million over the next 10 years.
