Simply trading Lou makes the Cannucks better, by clearing cap space, in what looks to be an inevitable cap reduction for the enitre league.
Why wouldn't Florida want Luongo? He takes them closer to the cap floor, and we pay part of his salary. I'd rather Luongo go to Florida for free than to Toronto for Franson's rights and Komisarek, etc.

That said, there are other teams interested, and if Burke's offers are similar to the one's here, I don't see him getting Luongo.
