Devils Interested In Roberto Luongo?

The New Jersey Devils have placed goalie Martin Brodeur (back) on injured reserve, retroactive to Feb. 24.

Brodeur, 40, has missed New Jersey’s last two games with a sore back and was originally listed as day-to-day.

Could this open up a window for Lou Lamoriello to make a trade for Roberto Luongo? At 33-years old Loungo isn’t a long-term fix but I doubt the next goalie that starts for the Devils will play 20 plus years for the team. This move would give the Devils time to find or develop a new heir apparent to the goalie throne that is Martin Brodeur.

This would also work well for Loungo, playing for a team that is huge on defense and small on mass media. If Loungo was looking to contend for a cup and have a healthy environment for success New Jersey could be his place.
