Why not Roberto Luongo for Brian Campbell?
I think I mentioned it before, but Tallon absolutely loves Campbell. What's more weird, apparently he loves what Jovo brings too. Florida sources - don't remember who, sorry, probably their beat writer George Richards.
I hope it stays this way. We need to get younger. As for "It's clear that Florida will not be giving up a top notch prospect" --> on what basis do you judge it is clear?
It's not like they have one blue chipper who they will never ever part with. They have four (Huberdeau, Gudbranson - technically he's a pro already - Markstrom & Bjugstad). They also have a bunch of sure-fire NHLers-to-be (Robak, Howden, McFarland, probably Grimaldi with height being his only knock).
Let's speculate a bit. As we know, MG wanted Gudbranson back when he was peddling Cody. Would you rather take Gudbranson, with his so-so rookie season but huge shutdown D potential, or Bjugstad, Mr. I OWN NCAA, logical replacement of our offensive stars in a couple of years?
