08:30 AM ET 09.19 | Toronto may no longer have its in-house goalie expert, but it could have a world-class goalie in its sights. [The Maple Leafs] remain interested in acquiring the services of Roberto Luongo. According to TVA Sports hockey analyst Enrico Ciccone, Maple Leafs general manager Brian Burke contacted his Vancouver Canucks counterpart, Mike Gillis, about the 33-year-old goaltender last weekend. This is not the first time Luongo has been linked to trade talks with Toronto. In April, the Leafs were among a group of teams that showed interest in the veteran netminder. ... Last season, the emergence of Canucks backup Cory Schneider has put Luongo's status as the club's No. 1 goalie in doubt.

Slow news day, nothing new here. TOR needs a goalie, Lou is available, teams have had a discussion.

Lets add, Lou wants nothing to do with TOR and has strongly inferred he would rather be a backup in FLA.

Every day is 'slow news day' at T&R. It's even worse when there is no hockey to talk about.

Well...since the noodle is giving you trouble...however, it never ceases to amaze me that where the Leafs are concerned, you never seem to ever get, "pooped out."

Leafs still chasing Luongo. Well he's a goaltender, the slowest guy on the team. if they can't catch him I can see how they finish every year.

Brad Ference would call this Robooby story for sure a joke.

I should note that I still place blame on dumb n dumber, but that it wasn't JUST them.

To reach this level of incompetence, you need a total 110% team effort, I agree.
