I see an odd thought process on this issue from some Canucks fans on this board. There seem to be two central, opposing ideas to it: "We want to move our unreliable goalie, who is saddled with a bad contract, so that our other, better goalie can take over" and "We expect a king's ransom in return." Those two don't mesh. The Canucks want to move Luongo because, as noted, he's not sufficiently reliable in net. To make matters worse, his contract sucks. Trading an unreliable goaltender who has a bad contract is not easy. A big return will not be had. And Canucks fans should not expect one, because the reasons that Luongo are being traded are the reasons why his trade value is not very high.
