To the Florida Panthers:
G Roberto Luongo
LW/RW Mason Raymond
D Andrew Alberts

To the Vancouver Canucks:
LW Sean Bergenheim
RW Matt Bradley
LW Quinton Howden
23rd overall pick
53rd overall pick

I thought adding in a swap of Bradley for Alberts helps Florida as they have an abundance of 4th line fowards while having only 6 d-men for next season if they lose Garrison and don't bring anyone up. If that part of the deal is bad we can take it out.

Then I swapped Upshall for Bergenheim from the original agreed upon deal.
As much as all the "pundits" want to try and say it works, it just doesn't make sense to bring Luongo back to the Panthers. Between Markstrom all but ready to come up and Luongo's contract, there just simply isn't a fit to a need regardless of whom the pieces are in either direction.
