Deal Luongo for value (if needed).
The Kings, Rangers and Blues may dispute this "best G tandem" claim, but there's no doubt Vancouver is up there. Certainly top 5.

I think they "deal Luongo for value (if possible)" - it's not a question of whether they need to, it's a question of whether it's possible to get a good return that fits their needs. Ballard is definitely the contract that stands out the most if the new CBA puts the Canucks into a jam.
