How's about Frolik, Danault & Olesz
Garbage, absolute garbage. If we deal with Chicago, Bolland is apart of the equation or no deal. Frolik is essentially a bust at this point, Danault is nothing and Olesz is a dump. We get nothing while Chicago improves tremendously in net.

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.
Not necessarily. We are more inclined to trade Luongo because Schneider is younger and already shown steps of becoming a future elite goaltender. In seven years he will be that age Lu is now, thus if expectations are met we would have phenomenal goaltending for the better part of the next decade. That said, Luongo may have his hiccups but he remains a top ten, arguably top five, goaltender and while some of us are willing to accept something more reasonable than Kane or Hossa. We are not trading him for another team's trash.
