Report: Caps could be looking at Luongo

A couple of tweets to stoke some Roberto Luongo trade speculation:

Of course, based on the numbers, the Caps have actually received pretty good goaltending this season from Braden Holtby, Philipp Grubauer, and Michal Neuvirth. Washington’s team save percentage is .914, tied with San Jose for 12th in the NHL.

As for another potential destination, I’ll throw in a couple of tweets of my own:

But we all know the problems with Luongo’s contract, so far as trading him is concerned. (He knows it, too.) Those issues remain, though with a rising salary cap maybe they’re not as pronounced as they were a year ago.
