Well the flipside is the fact that some people here believe he will get a first rounder, top guy off their current roster and a blue chip prospect. While we would love to say 29 other teams will be in the bidding for him, it is more like 4 or 5 and with a team like florida who has a built in salary cap for them to take on his actual money Luongo is getting, 6.7mill for the next 6 years it my be hard for them to take on. We can give it as much effort as we like, but as long as Florida has the built in cap and Markstrom in the systerm(whether we like it or he is good), Florida has a lot of reason not to trade for him. I don't see Florida as a good trading partner.It maybe a three way trade.
