Oops, yeah I meant 5th Overall in the upcoming draft. Eh, you are freeing up a ton of cap space, settling the goaltender controversy, and getting a pick that should return a stud, possibly an NHL ready center in Grigs, on an ELC. It frees up space to make a move on Parise or Suter, or plan your move on Weber next year etc. Sometimes trades can't be a landslide in all facets - you win getting a 5th for Luongo, you lose giving Kesler for Grabovski, but overall I think you win. Besides, you get rid of Kesler's constant whining and diving, that should be worth something, right?
