Marleau is one of the best left wingers in the game. Why anyone wouldn't want him is beyond me. As for Luongo, it's not a big deal if he's dealt in or out of conference. Goalies don't make that big of a difference to teams anymore.
Not sure I agree, his 64 points in 82 games last year suggests he may be on a decline. Vancouver wouldn't want him because we already have a first line LW in Daniel Sedin. 6.9m would be too much of a cap hit for a player on the second line IMO.

This trade just doesn't work out for either teams.
