Unless you believe Kesler will never be healthy again, we let Edler walk, Schneider and Lack fall apart, and the Sedin's will only be effective until they are 34.
I think that the Presidents Trophies says as much about the division that Vancouver played in, moreso than the team itself. That division looks to have improved in the off-season, and is adding Suter, Parise, Baertschi, Hudler, Wideman, Yakupov, and Schultz.
That said, by the start of 2014-2015, 11 Canucks will become UFA's, including both Sedins, Edler, Malhotra, Hansen, Raymond, Higgins, Lapierre, Alberts, Ebbet, and Volpati.
I can see why Vancouver needs to hit a home-run with the Luongo deal. I just can't see Toronto or Florida giving up a great deal for him right now. I think Gillis might be better off holding onto Luongo, and see if he can improve the leverage.
