When the deal goes down it will be somewhere in the middle. But I think proposals have run their course around here regarding Luongo. Circles of baseless garbage back and forth.
I really think the issue is: Vancouver need Luongo more than most team in the league.

Take florida for example: They have Theodore, Clemmensen and Markstrom.

Vancouver without Luongo have Lack and Schneider for a total of 68gp experience.

If Luongo was a UFA right now, Vancouver would need him more than Florida, or many other teams does.

So its normal that the gaps between the asking price and offer is too large for a trade to happen. Its also the reason why according to Gillis Luongo staying in Vancouver is the leading possibility.

Luongo could be moved at the deadline or summer 2013.
