I know that may be a bit of overpayment but I think it might work out well. (Lu had his best years when he faced alot of work and was in a low pressure enviroment). So it would look like


To Van:
LA's 1st round pick
Ottawa's 2013 2nd round pick

Final Jeff Carter Trade for us:

8th overall 2012
3rd rounder 2012
LA 1st
Ottawa's 2nd

I'd go with the Ottawa 2nd-rounder and nothing more. Vancouver gets rid of the contract, alleviates their goalie headache, and acquires a good pick to still be able to snag one of Subban/Dansk/Vasilievski/Makarov with.

No, it's not close to fair value, but it'll probably be the best one they get. Unless Brian Burke gets involved.
