However, I see the benefits of Luongo to the Panthers for 2-4 years then send him on his way. Markstrom can back him up for the first couple of years while Luongo takes them deep into the playoffs with the young prospect forwards coming through the system.

The deal only works if the Canucks take on some salary, and don't want top end picks/prospects. I'm hearing from Canucks fans that Luongo would rather retire in 3-4 years than be a backup...hopefully that is the case.
