The big trade
June, 24, 2006
During the past several months, we've continually heard that both Todd Bertuzzi and Roberto Luongo might be traded. On Friday, just a day before the NHL Draft, they were traded for each other. I score this deal a win for the Canucks. GM Dave Nonis was able to get a franchise goalie -- maybe the best goalie the franchise has ever had -- for a player that had clearly worn out his welcome in Vancouver.
