Luongo traded to The Maple Leafs for Package Deal

Update: April Fools!

After what has felt like nearly a year of rumors, reports, and speculation, Vancouver Canucks goaltender Roberto Luongo has finally been traded. To the surprise of nearly nobody, he has been shipped to the Toronto Maple Leafs. The surprise is what the package of players The Canucks got in return.

The trade broke in the early hours, on the east coast and the reaction has been widespread. Tell us what you think of the deal:

To Toronto:

  • Roberto Luongo
  • Bill Sweatt

To Vancouver:

  • Phil Kessel
  • Jake Gardiner
  • Dave Nonis
  • 1st & 2nd Round Pick

Seems a bit weird to have the trade announced TODAY of all days, but it was bound to happen sooner or later.

Happy Spring
