It's not often high profile players choose to go to Florida, back to back off-seasons where Tallon could acquire a top pairing defensman and a top goalie would definitely help Florida continue to lure higher profile, top level free agents IMO.
Both teams don't need Luongo. They have the absolute leverage like all teams do when inquiring about a player with a NTC who wants to waive there. (See Nash, Rick)
