I hope we can get at least a 1st + a roster player coming back
Yeah, I don't need HFboards to tell me what his value is.

For the most part it's teams that want him badly trying to diminish his value to Canuck fans (has no effect on the actual return) or fans of teams that are rivals with the Canucks (Edmonton and Calgary stand out) that want to discount his abilities...although he's consistently beaten the tar out of their clubs for the last 6 years, it's no wonder they don't like the guy.

I think my NHL player + top prospect + 1st round pick isn't even true value for Luongo, I've actually taken contract, NTC, etc into account. If Luongo didn't have the 3 circumvention years or an NTC, with his current cap hit, his value would be astronomical. I don't think a player, pick and prospect is an astronomical price....nor do I think Gillis is as inept as Scott Howson.
