What's being discussed now is the "adjusted fair price" mainly due to Luongo's NTC. If he didn't have a say where he wants to go, I think he would've been dealt earlier.

This is, what I think, the reason behind this deadlock. Gillis insists on taking back full value, whereas Burke and Tallon stopped at their adjusted fair value for Luongo.
Technically, it's not an adjusted price as the situation hasn't changed. When valuing a player, all things need to be considered incluging Contract, NTC's, and the fact his team would like to deal him. If Luongo was 27, didn't have a NTC or a 10 year deal...then ya, his value is much higher.
