Maybe Roberto Luongo isn’t among the yearly Vezina favorites like he once was, but he still must be considered an upgrade over the parade of candidates who have occupied the pipes for the Leafs during a post-season dry spell that will reach nine years in April. And the Leafs brass knows it.

Luongo does have a no-trade but is said to be willing to waive it to come to Toronto.
