I for one would not consider Edmonton "Low Probability."

KLO shocked the hockey world by acquiring Chris Pronger and made waves by bringing in Mike Peca.

Jussi Markannen has been solid, but he's not proven enough to ride into the playoffs. Conklin is still on the IR and hasn't had a stellar start yet this season and Morrison is IMO still a glorified ECHLer and lifetime minor leaguer.

The Oilers also have a lot of trade chips that would interest Keenan. Number 1 would have to be Raffi Torres IMO with Number 2 being Ethan Moreau and Steve Staios. Robbie Schremp and Ales Hemsky are probably the Oilers only two untouchables right now and the only thing the Oilers don't have to offer is a solid starting goalie in return, Markannen likely doesn't fit the bill in Florida.
However, I definitely see potential for a blockbuster trade sending Luongo to Edmonton.

To Florida: Raffi Torres/Ethan Moreau, Steve Staios and a 1st

To Edmonton: Roberto Luongo

Perhaps the deal is expanded to...

To Florida: Raffi Torres, Ethan Moreau, Georges Laraque, Steve Staios and a 1st

To Edmonton: Roberto Luongo and Stephen Weiss

Are those trades fair? Realistic?
