An elite goalie is not on the trade table everyday.
First mistake, he's not an elite goalie. He's a good one, but elite goalies tend not to be so emotionally fragile.
Second, he's got an extremely bad and long contract which would create problems for the OIlers going forward.
Third, there's only about 4 things I'd give up from the Oilers to get him, Horcoff, Habby, Omark and Potter
Fourth, he has a No Trade Clause and isn't likely to waive it for Edmonton.
In the end, the "Why aren't the Oilers per pursuing Luongo" because it makes no sense for the team.
