Luongo isn't being dumped, he wants out. He's had issues with management before, especially to do with his goalie coach and possibly how the captaincy was handled. I'm a Luongo fan, I don't want him to go at all. If it was up to me, I'd rather fleece some team for Schneider's rights and keep the goalie with the proven track record instead of handing the keys to a guy with 68 career games. Obviously if we have to part with Luongo, I want maximum return.
There is no ****ing way Burke trades the 5th overall pick for Luongo. Van got him in his prime for far less then the 5th overall pick, how are you gonna flip him for more at 33 years old and a gigantic contract?!?!

Luongo wants out, the team wants to get rid of his salary, there's a certain amount of teams he would go to, and a certain amount of teams that want him.

Maximum return ain't happening.
