And if Vancouver had Cloutier and an emerging Schneider, would you trade for 10 years of Luongo? Especially at anything close to the asking price? You seem to be trying to dump Luongo already while having an emerging Schneider.

Florida has Markstrom, widely considered one of the best, if not the best goalie prospect in the world. Sure, he's a few years younger than Schneider, but he could likely be ready for the 2014 season, maybe 2015. Florida is going to risk Luongo and his contract, and pay all that money despite being a poor team, just for the benefit of the first 1-2 years of a 10 year contract? When they already have Theo who can fill that role short term well enough to squeek them into the playoffs.
