Because Luongo is past his prime, and has a large lenghty contract. He also unfortunately has a history of coming up with poor performances in big playoff games. Regardless of how you feel about those playoff games affecting his value, the fact of the matter is it does affect people's perception of him.

I guess the short version is: Nash helps a team more than Luongo does at this point. Rick Nash is an elite player who has played on a terrible team his whole career. I'm sure many GMs feel he is more talented than his point totals indicate.
